Bushiri claims 2,7 mil­lion con­verts

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - SOCIETY - Brian Chitemba

EN­LIGHT­ENED Chris­tian Gath­er­ing Church leader Prophet Shep­herd Bushiri has rounded up his Global Prophetic Tour, say­ing he con­verted 2,7 mil­lion peo­ple to Christ.

The ECG leader’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions direc­tor Mr Ephraim Nyondo said the charis­matic preacher em­barked on the mis­sion in Jan­uary this year.

Prophet Bushiri, who has 3,6 mil­lion fol­low­ers on Face­book, spent the past 10 months criss-cross­ing the world, in­clud­ing a visit to Zimbabwe.

Mr Nyondo said, “In Jan­uary this year, Prophet Bushiri, an­nounced that the strate­gic goal for our church in 2018 is to win two mil­lion souls for Je­sus Christ. The Global Prophetic Tour is just a means of reach­ing that goal.

“Prophet Bushiri vis­ited the USA, In­dia, Aus­tralia, Dubai, South Korea, Tan­za­nia, Malawi, Kenya, Uganda, Nige­ria, and sev­eral parts of South Africa. So far over 2,7 mil­lion souls have been won to Je­sus. We are ex­pect­ing more be­cause we still have three coun­tries to visit.

“The tour is mostly about soul-win­ning; bring­ing peo­ple to Je­sus Christ and help­ing oth­ers to re­new their faith in God. So far, as al­ready said, the hunger for Je­sus has been huge and we are on an over­drive.” ECG was launched in 2010. Prophet Bushiri, who started preach­ing at the age of nine, this year caused a stir af­ter say­ing Zimbabwe would be like Dubai in six years.

Asked if the prophet was stick­ing to that claim, Mr Nyondo said, “Prophecy is a voice of God. Prophet Bushiri is only a con­duit. So when God speaks, noth­ing stops it. Bushiri is only a con­duit. So when God speaks, noth­ing stops it.”
