    My Archbishop Bafana S. ZONDO may God provide you with another 49 years to preach and help the nations of this world. I had the privilege of meeting you in Botswana December 2014 and the following day at Oasis Motel for business breakfast and I touched your hand. During the December period my siblings started confessing that they have been calling me a witch and I forgave them. I will visit RLW in Evaton with Pastor J. Mosinyi. God bless you. Amem

    good evening pastor zondo, faithfully your dwelling within the place of the most high God and abiding within the shadow of the almighty God i greet you in the wonderful name of my personal Lord and saviour Jesus Christ i am currently facing a stumbling block as a predicament at the moment i am a 27 young man who is very much passionate about ministry that i nearly decided to resign from my intern occupation i am still very much passionate about it however this time im intending to re-constructionally build up a church however my question is, is it possible to start a ministry and be used by God while im on a wheelchair ?, please dont misunderstand me im not saying that being on a wheelchair however im wondering would it be possible for me to be used by God normally without feeling guilty about not being to walk normally like everybody else?

    stay blessed

    yours sincerly

    BLESSING EXCHANGE & DELIVERANCE CLASS TO THOSE WHO DON’T BELIEVE: I’m the living testimony.
    my salaray was adjusted 3xms between June 2015 & February 2016(after blessing exchange). I bought a new Mazda CX5 on 17 February 2016 (after deliverance class Dec 2015). I went to church twice to give testimony, the devil tried to stop me from doing that. I did blessing exchange to able to tell the Bishop about car.
    To my surprise through God’s Grace, (God revealed to Archbishop a week before I brought the car, the notes were written in his notebook) that somebody will come to church and present the car & he must pray for it. just wanna thank God for bringing Archbishop Zondo into our lives, he’s truly a man of God. Dankie habedi, haro. May God give you & your many more years to come. Amen

    I am requesting a restoration prayer. My fiancé and I just broke up and this is a third engagement. I am hurting big time, as I’m in a family of non-believers. I am 40 years of old, I am not getting young and I cant keep on losing men like this. God called us into holiness. I am even in a point of giving up on Christianity. I am a laughing stock in my family as they wonder if any man is coming for proposal, if it is going last. I am also looking for prayer of protection over witchcraft.

    Please pray for me man of God. I’m hurting!

    Archbishop where I am , I’m sick and your God is my only hope. My legs are very painful and I’ve got spiritual attacks but when I’m in your church my body becomes well. When I’m going out it starts again. Today I’m worse, it is difficult to even walk. Evil spirits ask me why I refuse to die. This morning they were telling me to drink blood and my only answer was I’m only drinking the blood of Jesus with thunder of fire. Poverty in my house is too much to the extend that my husband just disappeared. I do not know where is him. But in these days of fasting I trust your God and I do not know because there is huge peace in me.
