Church feeds the needy in honour of T.B Joshua

Living up to their name, The Voice of Hope church in Maun donated food hampers to 45 vulnerable households.

Lead by their church leader, Prophet Kefentse Festus Seitsewe, the holy outfit spent the whole of Saturday visiting selected homes in Maun, Shorobe, Boro and Sexaxa.

“We had a wonderful day reaching our people in rural areas. The main reason was to honour the words of the man of God who has just passed to glory, T.B Joshua. He said we should reach out to the people on this day. Today was his birthday and the fifth anniversary of our church,” explained Seitsewe, commonly known only as Prophet Festus.

Festus was a great follower of the charismatic Nigerian prophet, who founded the Synagogue Church of All Nations and achieved global fame for his televised sermons.

“We have been doing this all these past years, on his birthday that coincide with our church’s anniversary,” added Festus.

As he went around homes praying for the elderly and underprivileged, Festus told the grateful recipients he was giving as a way of honouring the departed prophet.

For their part, the residents said the food arrived at the right time as Covid-19 had left many of them on the brink of starvation.

“We thank the church for the gift because I am unemployed. I stay with my boyfriend who is also unemployed. For us to buy food is when he is lucky to find a peace job which often do not pay much,” disclosed Boro native and mother-of-seven, Poitshego Kagiso.

Another resident, pensioner Gasefele Kgolagalo, added the food hamper will help keep hanger pangs at bay, noting the pension money she gets from government is not enough to buy most of the things she needs.

61-year-old Gagolelwe Kose, a disabled woman who has no legs, described the church’s visit as a great honour.
