NAIROBI, KENYA(ANS) — A Kenyan woman who was seriously injured when attacked by a buffalo, was later healed by the power of God, brought an audience of 500 doctors and medical professionals from 37 countries to their feet at a unique conference in Nairobi, Kenya.

Her name was Kanasa and her case was presented to the 9th Annual World Christian Doctors Network conference (May 26, 2012), by Dr. Zipporah Ngumi, a well-known Kenyan doctor, who told the story that had been related to her by a Ginny Hales who was part of a mission’s team from Birmingham Alabama.She related that she had been staying at Enturoto, a village about three miles from where Kanasa lived and a doctor was with her to give “very necessary medical help as that was an area with no help at all and we could hardly bring the Gospel without being concerned about the people’s physical welfare as well.”

Hales, in her message that was read by Dr. Ngumi, went on to say, “We were called to Kanasa’s village in the evening before we were to leave and were told that a buffalo had attacked her when she went to collect water at the nearby stream.”

She said that Dr. Susan McCollum, from Birmingham, Alabama, examined the woman and found her to be in a “very bad state” with her “femur fractured, a huge hole through the skin of the thigh where the horn of the buffalo had entered.”

The message that Dr. Ngumi was reading then said, “There was also damage to her forehead and some ribs were fractured. I believe a lung had been pierced…. The wounds were washed and covered and Susan gave pain relief medicine and antibiotics and as it was late in the evening and we needed to get all our things together at our base in Enturoto we had to say that we would collect her early the next morning and take her to the hospital. We prayed for God to keep her safe overnight and to heal here and then left.”

She said that early the next morning they returned to the village of Osarara and as they came to the bottom of the hill a woman came running towards them shouting, “Kanasa is healed! Kanasa is healed!”Hales’s message said, “Behind her, walking down the hill without a limp or an impediment came Kanasa, on her face a huge smile! Her leg was truly healed and the hole where the horn had entered had closed completely. The broken skin on her forehead had also closed and there was no sign of infection anywhere.

“As far as Susan could tell the ribs were still painful and it was a few weeks before they healed, but the major wounds had healed completely and there was no infection – a major miracle after being pierced by a dirty horn. There was great praise to God, as you can imagine.”

It was then when Dr. Ngumi announced that Kanasa was in the hall, and everyone rose to their feet as this slight woman walked to the front and onto the platform and waved to the audience.

Her son accompanied her and spoke on her behalf saying, “This was indeed a miracle. We know my mother was restored by prayer because she had also broken her leg, and this was healed also.”

This was just one of many miracles documented during this conference, which will, next year, be held in Mexico City, Mexico.
