Bishop Nash’s E120 000 cash gift
Bishop ND Nhlapho of God Never Fails Ministries took his giving spirit to another level when he presented Bishop Nash Shongwe with E120 000 cash offering towards the church’s fundraising drive.
Bishop Nhlapho, who hails from Durban, South Africa, stunned many when he announced that he had brought a cash donation as his way of appreciating the support and kindness that Bishop Nash has shown him over the years they have known each other.
He said through the donation he was also demonstrating what can be described as what goes around comes around. He said when you do something good to someone else it shall be done to you same applies as when you do something bad.
This was during a fundraising dinner held at the Divine Healing church on Friday night. Bishop Nhlapho said when he started his ministry 10 years ago, Bishop Nash was one of the few pastors who supported his vision at its humble beginnings.
He recalled how the bishop would frequently visit his church in South Africa and further present him with money each time he came to the Kingdom of Eswatini to preach.
“I still recall how the bishop donated a red carpet for the church in Mbalenhle which we had just opened. The red carpet on the pulpit is still there and I am humbled to know that you even supported me when I started a ministry in the Kingdom of Eswatini.
If it was someone else you would have turned against me because you would view me as your competition yet we are all pushing the same mandate of the heavens,” he said.
Bishop Nhlapho preached against what he called spirit of Anon among Christians in the church. He said people do not realise that when your spiritual father prospers you also prosper. He said when you do something for the church you are doing it for yourself.
He urged Christians to always honour and do good things for their fathers in the Lord, elderly and destitute stating that when you help them God amazes you with endless blessings. He urged the church to support the vision of the bishop if they want to prosper, stating that Bishop Nash is their Moses.
Bishop Nhlapho further called to the front all elderly people who are above 60 years and the widows whom he had prayed for and later presented them with E200 each. There were about 40 people who came forward. He said the elderly and destitute are so close to his heart hence he always makes sure that he supports them where there is a need.
Prince Masitsela, who was the guest speaker on the night, thanked Bishop Nash for the role he has played in ministry of the Word of God in the country. He said he personally believed in Bishop Nash’s vision and thanked him for not failing the church but growing the ministry to the greater heights it has reached. Prince Masitsela, who was represented by Reverend Mandla Dlamini, also donated E5 000 to the church. He said the country needs more men of God who are selfless when it comes to the work of God.
Manzini Mayor Mxolisi Mabuza bought a E5 500 coffee table and a E6 700 couch which auctioned on the night by Ndzingeni MP Lutfo Dlamini.
The furniture was donated by Tee & Jay to the church to assist in the fundraising. They managed to raise E15 700 from the three items. The third one was a TV stand which was bought by Pastor Mduduzi Mntambo who is a member of the church.
Bishop Nash thanked Bishop Nhlapho for the donation and said he was humbled to have a friend like him. He said he has known Bishop Nhlapho for a long time and was glad that he has kept the relationship. He thanked Prince Masitsela and all the sponsors including the man of God who came through to support the church.
Among the sponsors as highlighted by the bishop were SwaziBank, Eswatini Posts and Telecommunications, Tee & Jay, GNF, Indlela Yekuphila, His Majesty’s Correctional Services, Sibonginkosi Medical Services, Senator Ndumiso Mdluli, Comfort Myeni, Cebsile Mthethwa, Destiny Musicm Bridal Heavens, Senator Roberto Samuels, Easy Joy Deco & Hiring and Dlamini Gibb Consultants among others.
