Speaking ion the theme, “Bethesda Healing Experience” Makhubu said, she has been a victim of unexpected pain, disappointment and sudden loss, so she made the show to heal and comfort the broken.
“I thought how of many things that people are silently suffering from, that they can’t talk about, that make them cry to sleep without anyone’s knowledge”. “And I thought what better time to address those wounds, open those up to God and say Lord heal us” she said.
She said, she felt that if there’s a time the world needs healing is now. From the pandemic, she said people have lost jobs, associating with our loved ones has come to a halt. ‘The new normal itself came with an unusual painful experience so from all that I was saying to God help us to focus on you and forget about all that is going on”, she said.
