Osteoporosis is a bone-weakening disease that develops gradually and makes bones so fragile that they fracture under normal use. The problem started shortly after the death of their mother who suffered from the same disease. Since then, Betty has been living on a cocktail of painkillers to manage the pain.
At CoRsu, she was told that her bones had dissolved to nothing so she was beyond any
medical cure. While attending the revival, she felt the presence of the Holy Spirit which moved her to regain movement and could no longer feel the pain.

said he would officially wed them in church to sanctify their marriage.
Mr and Mrs Katunguka from Entebbe received a miracle of salvation during the revival. Mrs Katunguka confessed to having lived years under the persecution of her husband for her faith. “He hated the fact that I was a born again Christian who actively attended church. There were many times he locked me out of the home because of attending night prayers. But nothing could take me away from God. I kept praying and lifting him up to God believing that one day God would save him. And I can now say that God has answered my prayer because my husband gave his life to Christ. When we are unable to come here for the revival he encourages me to watch it on Channel 44. We are happier as a couple and I have at last found peace in my home. I thank God for the gift of salvation and for restoring our marriage.”
