Forgive And Forget : “Bishop Ben Bahati Helped Me Heal The ANGER I Had Towards My Father” Gospel Singer Gooya Shares

While God was doing all these things in Gooya’s heart, one day in 1999, when Gooya was 17 years old, he unintentionally came upon a church crusade hosted by the late Bishop Ben Bahati. Bishop Ben was up on the stage singing reggae music – CHRISTIAN reggae music! Gooya was captivated and couldn’t believe such a thing was allowed in church! Because of it he stayed and listened to Bishop’s message of salvation and during the alter call found himself running up to the front with tears streaming down his face. That day he surrendered his life to Jesus and he has NEVER turned back since.

The next day Gooya was sitting in Bishop Ben’s office, telling him his story and pouring out his heart. Bishop Ben looked at him straight in the eye, gave him a big hug, and told him that he loved him. Up to that point Gooya had never been hugged by a man and had never heard the words, “I love you.” Through Bishop Ben becoming a true father to Gooya, he helped him heal from his anger towards his biological father and to find peace and compassion in his heart for him.

At first Gooya thought it would be more spiritual to abandon his musical gift. Rap was not widely accepted in churches back then so he poured himself into studying the Bible instead. Bishop Ben gave him the training and platform to preach in the church and to do mass evangelism. Gooya was passionate about those things and he had a God-given gift in those areas, but as time passed his passion for music could not be quenched. God started pouring Gospel songs into his heart and his creativity came alive like never before.

He went to Bishop Ben for advice and Bishop encouraged him in his music gift. He helped Gooya record his first album and gave him a platform to minister through his music.

In 2003 Bishop Ben sent Gooya to Bible school where he met his wife. They were married in 2006 and since then, by God’s grace,


What an inspiration this is. GOD used Bishop Ben Bahati to help Gooya forgive his father who neglected him while he was young. GOD is truly amazing right ?
