‘My eyes just welled up’ Raburu’s wife says after going to church for first time in months

While Kenya and the world at large might be grappling with the covid-19 virus, Willis Raburu’s wife, Maryaprude has been having a different experience – a positive outlook.

Marya has had a tough 2020 for anyone who knows her story. A little recap – Willis and his wife Marya lost their unborn baby girl, Adana on the last day of 2019, something that shattered their lives – the way the coronavirus has done worldwide.

Marya is now getting back to her old self and one way to do that is by re-establishing old connections-in this case, the church. Taking to Instagram, Mrs. Raburu revealed that it was a moving moment for her when she walked into Jubilee Christian Church (JCC).

She went on to disclose that she had missed worshiping together with fellow believers.

“Today was my first time to attend church in a long time, walked in and my eyes just welled up with tears, I missed being among brethren, praising and worshiping together. I had an amazing time,” shared Marya.

This statement contrasts remarkably to the one a grieving Marya had made earlier in the year questioning why God had failed to come through for her when she needed him the most. She mentioned that people were encouraging her by telling her about God but she did not want to know him.

“Everyone is so quick to tell me about God… What they don’t know is that every way I knew Him was tested and He didn’t prove Himself. So as they say you should know God for yourself, I now can say, I don’t know Him. And I don’t think I want to know him coz He left me when I needed him the most,” wrote Mrs. Raburu.

Her encouraging statement comes a few days after she announced her comeback via Instagram. Her revelation came after a fan commented on her picture, noting that she was smiling and went ahead to thank God for that.
