He was a specialist of a branch of Drug Metabolism known as Signal Transduction. He majored in Signal Transduction by cancer chemotherapeutic drugs.
The work that arose from his appointment at the Centre for Pharmaceutic al Biotechnology, was extensively published in world class peer review scientific journals of cancer such as Journal for Biological Chemistry (JBC), Journal for Pharmaceutical Research, and Carcinogenesis among others. Effects of environmental insults After that, prophet Dr David Edward Owuor was further appointed to the department of pharmaceutics at the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at the State University of New Jersey. At the Department of Pharmaceutics in New Jersey, Owuor furthered his work by looking at not only the cancer chemotherapy, but also got involved in cancer chemo prevention, and that is when he studied the chemicals PEITC and different Anti Oxidants and their roles as gene-switches, that help the human body to fight cancer.
Prophet Dr David Owuor professionally trained in chemical engineering and has worked as well as tutored in various institutions in Israel and the United States of America. But, he avers, he had to drop this professional pursuit and heed the strong voice of God that directed him towards the proclamation of repentance by sinning people. That was the assignment over which he raised a lot of dust in the secular as well as Christian circles when he, without much preamble, made such profound pronouncements that Kenyans could not just wish away.
While based at Chicago in the US, Prophet Owuor worked as a faculty post-doctoral fellow at the Centre for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology at the College of Pharmacy at the University of Illinois.

Dr Owuor also published works in the Journal for Biological Chemistry, Molecular Pharmacology (JBC) and also worked with American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists.
Prophet Owuor Transformation from a scientist to a gospel minister – Prophet Owuor Calling
In 2003, while he was staying in Chicago, he was sleeping one night when the Lord presented himself in a vision, accompanied by Daniel, Elijah and Moses as witnesses. He touched him with his left hand and lifted him up. He says he did not understand what that meant and He told him ‘I want you to be my hand on Earth.’ He showed him a highway to drive, showed him a throne and inside there was the Ark of the new covenant.
On April 2, 2004 , Dr David Owuor says God appeared to him accompanied by John the Baptist and told him to tell the four corners of the world to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ. This was in a vision at 3.29am. “There was an earthquake, the Lord gave me the rod of Moses and asked me to warn all nations of the Earth to repent from sexual sin, lying, witchcraft and preaching of money, in order to restore the altar of the Lord,” he says.
“It was a very difficult moment. Experiencing seven months of argument with the Lord was not easy,” he says, while maintaining that his mission is strictly to preach repentance and holiness as instructed by God.
Like any other professional, he admits that it was a big challenge for him to quit his profession to serve the Lord. He says he started preaching in churches, crusades and many people did not believe him. His friends were shocked and thought he had become insane, but his family remained supportive, understanding and thought that was the best thing he could do.
Interestingly, he says God first sent him to serve in Latin America where he preached and many people there repented. He is grateful to the Kenya government, which he says, helped facilitate his trips. He remembers his message at Puerto Escondido in Mexico on August 6, 2003. “I warned them of severe earthquake if they did not repent, and the following day, there was an earthquake. The same was the case in Monterrey also in Mexico, which experienced an earthquake within 24 hours of my preaching,” he says.
Prophet Owuor has been featured in the media worldwide for predicting disasters like earthquakes and floods which have come to pass. In June, October and November 2003, he predicated last December’s Asian Tsunami, America’s Hurricane Katrina and Pakistan’s earthquakes—all which came to pass.
Prophet Owuor is said to possess extra ordinary powers and that whenever he stands on the pulpit to preach, some white doves are reported to fly past him, with the rainbow also appearing in the sky. Asked the reason behind the phenomenon, he says it shows God’s covenant with him. “I have made a covenant with God, to serve him forever. He has empowered me, and that is why he releases doves from heaven and displays the rainbow to show that my powers are real.”
