Marrium Unique Pikani’s Restoration Story

Before I fully joined Fountain of Victory Church International, as a member, my life was in a mess. Just sure you know, I was already a born again by then and I was speaking in tongues too, but my life was utterly dry. I used to fail miserably in my academics, nothing worked and my spiritual life got ‘eaten up’ too.

I remember there was only one statement that used to come out of my mouth: ‘Kodi kunalembedwa kuti ena yawo ndi misozi?’ [Is it written that some people will be born only to shed tears?]. I couldn’t see any future at all. I always felt like my life had hit a dead end. I felt being an embarrassment to my family. I had suicidal thoughts, in fact, I attempted to commit suicide. But when death rejected me, I decided to go to what I called ‘exile’. I planned to disappear to God knows where, without a trace. I hoped that by doing that life would be different. New things; new environment would mean new life, I thought. In my exile thoughts, the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me, ‘Why can’t you start afresh?’ I knew from that moment that I must stay.

‘Kodi kunalembedwa kuti ena yawo ndi misozi?’ [Is it written that some people will be born only to shed tears?].

In my starting afresh I decided to renew my relationship with God. I knew I needed to find a church to call home as God commanded us, in Hebrews, not to forsake the assembling together of Saints. The question that struck my mind was ‘which church now?’ I needed God’s direction on that.

I have known the Man of God, Apostle Joseph Ziba, since some time back. Actually, I had been at his meeting place countless times, more especially when I was confused he would minister something concerning my situation. However, I didn’t want to make his church my home. Fountain of Victory was an absolute no to me. But the Spirit said ‘Go to fountain of Victory’ I obeyed instantly. My first Sunday to attend the Church was in 2017. I found them in the Season of Restoration of All Things. That was the theme for that year. I said to myself ‘This is truly my season’.

True to my belief, by the time I finished that year, I had a mighty restoration: I got my spiritual life back, I excelled in my studies and my life and language completely changed. Glory to God!

Today I celebrate the grace that God gave me, the ground that I got planted in, Fountain of Victory Church International and the rare gifts: Apostle Joseph Ziba and Pastor Priscilla Ziba.

The Bible says in Ephesians 4:11-12 ‘…And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ…’

Now I can boldly say my life has been perfected in a space of 2 years!

I am expecting more because as Fountain of victory, God has ushered us into a season of EXCELLING GLORY—LIFE UNMATCHED!
