    Nothing can separate us from the love of God. Our prayers are with the families of those who lost their loved ones. May their souls rest in peace.

    Yet nobody has been held responsible for this atrocity.. No logical explanation… Accept for the UFO plane that was said to be hovering around…. Typical nigeria.. May their soul rest in peace.

    This is not good at all. I live in South Africa and this issue is on the news all day long here. I pray it doesn’t stir any hostility between South Africans and us foreigners here.

    Indeed, this is a difficult time 4 all Christians but especially, TB Joshua and his followers. I pray 4 all who have lost loved ones to be strenghtened with might from above.
