On Tuesday, Prophet Elvis Mbonye celebrated 42 years on earth, just a day shy of his birthday, which falls on 27th March. This meant that his weekly gathering best known as Zoe Fellowship turned into a gala of sorts.
The Zoe grounds located opposite Philip Omondi Stadium were not the same as the environment during the previous editions of the fellowship.
The fellowship was blended with fun as the remnants joined the man of God to celebrate his day.
As early as 6 pm, the grounds were already filled to capacity with remnants who were praising and worshipping before the Prophet together with his convoy made his way to the venue.
There was excitement on everyone’s face as they gave him a standing ovation to welcome him as he stepped out of his white Range Rover Sport.
Upon taking his seat on the black leather sofa, fireworks was displayed for close to five minutes.
“Because it is your birthday my Papa, we have a production specifically for you,” Mr Wilson K. Peter, the host of the celebration said, as they played a surprise video of renowned American gospel artiste Micah Stampley who wished Prophet Mbonye a happy birthday and said he couldn’t wait to meet him soon.
There was loud cheers in the grounds as not only the Prophet was surprised but also the remnants. Performances from the Zoe worship team kicked off the night as it involved instrumentalists playing some good music for the Prophet.
Rapper Edwin Ruyonga also performed an original composition praising the Prophet. A group of young children that referred to themselves as the Young Remnants also came out with a special performance for Prophet Mbonye.
Unlike other fellowships when the Prophet goes to the Pulpit at around 7 pm to 9 pm, he this time stepped up on the pulpit at 9:30pm.
“Everyone who is here is amazing,” the excited Prophet said. He went on to minister and that evening, his reading was from John 18:37 which said, “For this purpose, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. Everyone being of the truth hears my voice.”
Prophet Mbonye preached after cutting cake and everyone went home with a cupcake. Videos of most of his Prophecies were played on the big screens and some of them were about the Oscars, Mugabe stepping down as President of Zimbabwe, Donald Trump winning as the President of the United States of America and plane that landed safely on a busy street in USA and no one was hurt among other prophecies.
