Mbabane: Prohibiting church gatherings cannot stand on Apostle Justice Dlamini’s way to collect offerings and blessing his flocks of Mbabane Worship Centre.
A poster that sent social abuzz on Thursday afternoon, revealed that Apostle Justice Blessing D will be conducting this first of its kind services during the weekend which will be Saturday, 23 January and Sunday 24 January 2021.
This kind of services will allow congregants to come to the church premises in their cars, make their offerings of tithes and free-will offerings, then receive blessings from the man of God and then drive back to their various homes.
“This will be the chance for your kids to see and greet and receive 2021 blessing from car!” reads the poster.
This comes shortly after the Acting Prime Minister Themba Nhlanganiso Masuku announced banning of all public gatherings a few days ago. Masuku banned all the gatherings except for funerals which allows only 50 people to attend.
In a telephonic interview with this Independent News, Siza Dlamini of the Mbabane Worship Centre Ministries acknowledged the poster. She said during this service all COVID-19 regulations will be followed as no one will be allowed to get off their cars and enter the church whatsoever.
Dlamini said controlling means will be in place to avoid long queues.
She said this services were strictly planned for those who will be using cars and those who do not have cars were advised to use other means to make their offerings and those means include Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT) systems and mobile money.
Dlamini said the country is not on its first lockdown, hence the church members were aware of the other means used to make offerings. When asked why now the church came up with this kind of service specifically, because there will be no preaching during this service, she declined to make further comments, sticking to that it will allow people to see their Apostle.
Apostle Justice Dlamini recently made sent social media abuzz when he posted a video on social media, where he was testifying about his experience with COVID-19 and how he overcame the disease. Dlamini was later invited to the national radio station where he spoke about his experience with the deadly pandemic and how he survived it. He confidently encouraged the public to practise steaming (Kufutsa) as it is one of the means that he believed to have saved him. He claimed that steaming assisted him in the shortness of breath.
