2. AFM OF SA OFFICIAL STATEMENT: COVID-19 & THE VIOLENCE IN THE COUNTRY 

The National Office Bearers of the Apostolic of Faith Mission in South Africa call upon our pastors and members, in these difficult days to keep the faith and pray to God to redeem us from this devastating pandemic. Psalm 46:1-2: “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So, we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea” (NLT).

We are mindful of the words of Paul in Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

3. A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: VIDEO MESSAGE

Today I want to encourage you as my colleague in the ministry. I want to remind us of the following scripture: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (ESV).

4. RECOVERING FROM COVID-19: A COMPLETE GUIDE

We are living in challenging times. However, we are comforted by the fact that God promises us that He will never leave nor forsake us. He is with us always. We continue to pray for everybody’s health and safety.

AFM Welfare received a manual on the management of Covid-19. To make sure that we do not spread false information, I confirmed with a trusted medical professional and a representative from the Department of Health, that this information is accurate and correct. This is excellent information – please read it and forward it to your network. You or someone in your network will probably find this information useful:
