Right from a young age, Edna Kajuba Manyindo, a Ugandan living in the UK, was disturbed by the consuming spirit of depression. Although she had everything materially that a girl could want, she would wake up every day to a deluge of negative and suicidal thoughts. At school, she could not mix or fit in. “I felt as if I did not belong to this world, so I decided to end it. I could not stop crying”, Edna recounted. But each suicide attempt failed. She would regularly slit her wrists, believing that the physical pain would somehow dilute the deep pain in her heart.
Several times, she took an overdose of medication and was given a 50-50 chance to survive. The evil spirit would push Edna to be disobedient and rebellious. She thought that relationships would fill the gap inside, so she turned to the internet and became addicted to chatting online. This was where she finally met her husband but even after getting married, the deep hole in her heart seemed to get wider. She thought that perhaps possessions and clothes would give her joy so anytime she got money, she would exhaust
it in the shops, buying more of what she knew she already had. It was a destructive, intense spirit that appreciated nothing and delighted in pain.
Jane Manyindo Kapita, Edna’s mother, narrated how the depression had reached its climax when she received a call from her daughter telling her goodbye. Distraught, Jane pleaded with Edna, “What do you mean? Where are you going?” “I am leaving this world” was the reply. Edna was standing on the platform at the train station about to throw herself in front of an oncoming train. Jane quickly called the police who swiftly intervened and rescued her, taking her to a psychiatric hospital.
Edna’s academic progress was severely affected as she was never able to put her 100% effort and concentration into her studies due to the depression. Seventeen long years of depression was a sad tale for both mother and daughter but Jane steadfastly believed that there was light at the end of the tunnel. She kept praying and believing for deliverance. She started taking Edna to numerous churches and even paid £10,000 at one particular church in promise of the deliverance but the problem still remained.
It was at this point of desperation that she discovered Emmanuel TV and introduced her daughter to it. When Edna prayed with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV, she felt a slight relief for the first time in her life. Jane visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. When she ministered it on Edna, the demon knew that it’s end was close. It furiously continued to attack Edna, out of frustration and bitterness. It’s time was up.
Jane was extremely determined to bring her daughter to The SCOAN and last Sunday, she achieved her aim. As the Morning Water was ministered on Edna, she felt a searing heat pass through her entire body. “It was as if something was pushed out of me” she testified. “Now, I am like a new born baby”. The depression that held her in bondage for so long had lifted. Mother and daughter alike praised God for this supernatural deliverance, testifying that everything had changed.
