The city of Joburg appreciated Prophet Bushiri’s gesticulation and wished them, the church with a great life for touching the lives of people in Alexandra. The department disaster in the city acknowledged Prophet Bushiri Shepherd for donating R400000 the last week to the fire victims of Alexandra, a high residential area in the city.
Almost 25 families, consisting of 380 people in the locality, had lost their possessions due to the raging fire, which further devastated them into being homeless and deserted them with nothing.
An important official from the city of Joburg, NielRooi addressed the gathering that it is always a great honour to have people all around who pledge for something and fulfil them. He stated that
“We appreciate Prophet Bushiri’s gesture and we wish him and the church great life for touching the lives of people in Alexandra.”
Bushiri stood along with the fire victims in Alex and dedicated a prayer to the demolished and victimized. Bushiri also pledged to return the week after making a pledge of R400000. The ECG leader, a humanitarian contributor, returned on Thursday and asserted the people with the provision of necessary privileges and basic necessities worth R400000 so that the victims will have a new full-fledged life.
They also received maize meal, cooking oil, soap, blankets, clothes, sugar, salt and several other commodities. Children’s books, clothes, shoes and supplies were also part of the packages delivered to the victims.
Bushiri expressed that he did not come to Alexandra to give preaching through an explanation of words but he told he was a man who believed “Actions speak louder than words”. Hence, he came not to preach but to demonstrate.
“We have not come here with the Bible to preach to you that God loves you. We have come here with these items to preach to you, by demonstrating, that God loves you. This is a message we have brought and you, too, should emulate it when your neighbour is in want and need,” he said.
Bushiri also reclaimed that he doesn’t merely give because he possesses them, but because he knows what it means to have nothing. To lose everything must have been everybody’s experience, and it was when we lose everything God comes into the frame. Likewise, to the people who know this truth will always be willing to help. The father proved enough by sacrificing his son Jesus Christ.
