Okusila oshimpwiyu iinakugwanithwa yi ili no yi ili mbyoka okwa li kwe mu kwathele a kale u uvite kutya kehe shoka tatu ningi nenge kutya kehe mpoka tatu longo mehangano lyaJehova oku li uuthembahenda nelaleko nuuyamba. Oku uvite ngaaka sigo okunena.

OMALUNDULUKO NGOKA TWA NINGA

Mokati koomvula dho 1970 nasha, otwa li twa tameke okudhimbulula kutya aavali yetu mboka taye ende taya kulupa oya pumbwa ekwatho li vule lyoshito. Otwa li tu na okuninga etokolo lya kwata miiti. Katwa li twa hala okuthiga po Obetel nosho wo aalongeli yaJehova ooyakwetu mboka tu hole noonkondo. Ihe onda li ndu uvite kutya osha li oshinakugwanithwa shandje ndi sile oshimpwiyu aavali yetu. Onkee ano, konima yethimbo otwa thigi po Obetel, netegamano kutya uuna onkalo yetu ya lunduluka, otashi vulika tu galuke.

Opo tu iyambidhidhe pashimaliwa, onda tameke okunyola aantu momahangano omakwashilipaleki. Itandi dhimbwa nando shoka menindjela gumwe a li a lombwele ndje sho nda li tandi dheulwa a ti: “Ongeshefa ndjika oyi ikolelela kokudhenga oongodhi kongulohi. Pethimbo ndyoka opo ho mono aantu. Kapu na sha shilwe sha simanenena shi vule okukala po ongulohi kehe to dhenge oongodhi.” Onde mu yamukula nda ti: “Ondi na uushili kutya oto popi oshinima wu shi shi, nonde shi simaneka. Ihe ondi na wo iinakugwanithwa yopambepo mbyoka kaandi na esiku ndi ipwililikile, nokandi ndi na edhiladhilo lyoku shi ninga ngashingeyi. Otandi ka dhenga koongulohi dhimwe, ihe kongulohi mEtiyali nomEtine, onda pumbwa okuya kokugongala kwa simana.” Jehova okwa laleka ndje nuuyamba shili sho kaanda li nda faula okugongala ndi longe iilonga yomboloto.

Otwa li twa kalela meme sigo oosho a hulithile megumbo lyaakulupe muJuli 1987. Omupangi omukuluntu megumbo moka okwe ya kuGrace e te mu lombwele ta ti: “Mee Allen, inda kegumbo wu ka vululukwe po. Kehe gumwe oku shi shi kutya opo wa kala mpaka aluhe nameemweno gwoye. Kala wu na ombili  yokomwenyo nokukala wu uvite etumba sho we mu ningila ashihe shoka wa li to vulu oku mu ningila.”

MuDesemba 1987, otwa li tu udhitha oofooloma tu ka longe ishewe kObetel, ehala ndyoka tu hole. Ihe opwa piti owala omasiku omashona, ye Grace ota monika okaankela yomendjandja enene. Konima yetando nokokwaaluka nawa, okwa li a monika kutya ke na we okankela. Konima yethimbo lyontumba, otwa yakula ontumwafo ya zi kObetel ndjoka tayi tu lombwele kutya natu tsikile nuukalele wetu megongalo lyomoshitopolwa shetu. Otwa li twa tokola toko okupula komeho niilonga yetu yUukwaniilwa.

Pethimbo mpoka opwa li pwa holoka ompito yiilonga kuTexas. Otwa li twa tokola kutya onkalo yombepo ya pupyala hoka otayi ka kala ombwanawa kutse, yo oya kala tuu shili ombwanawa. Muka muTexas, otwa kala mo uule woomvula 25 tu li mokati kaamwatate naamwameme ye na olukeno mboka tu na nayo ngashingeyi ekwatathano lyopothingo.

Grace okwa li a kwatwa ishewe kokankela yendjandja enene, yo-thyroid, nomathimbohamale okwa li a kwatwa kuyokegundji. Ihe ke na nando esiku a nyenyetele kombinga yonkalamwenyo ye nenge a kale inaa simaneka uukwamutse nokukala itaa vulika kuwo. Olundji oha pulwa taku ti: “Oshike she mu ningitha mu kale mwa nyanyukwa mu li aaihokani nosho wo mu li oohandimwe?” Oha gandja omatompelo gane: “Otu li ookuume kopothingo. Ohatu kundathana esiku kehe. Otu hole okukala pamwe. Ihatu kotha nando uusiku twa geyelathana.” Eeno shili, ohatu ningathana nayi omalupita, ihe ohatu dhiminathana po nokudhimbwa, nomukalo ngoka ohagu kwatha shili.
