President Lungu attends a Divine Service at Kyawama A Congregation – Solwezi
Zambia’s Head of State, Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu, had fellowship with New Apostolic Church members of Kyawama A Congregation, in a Divine Service in Solwezi on Sunday, February 21, 2016. The divine service was conducted by area Apostle, Patrick Poho.
Genesis 32:26 was used as text word:
“And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”
Apostle Poho implored the congregation to rise and shine in their deeds, conduct and behavior.
He added that God’s
children needed a blessing from God and this can only be possible if they did
the will of God.

“As children of God, we face many challenges. But when we know the source of our blessings we shall not falter, irrespective of the situation.
“When faced with trials and temptations, usually we ask many questions as to why God has allowed such trying moments to come our way. We should realize that these are yardsticks that the Lord uses to measure our faith to see as to whether it is unwavering,” the Apostle said.
He further admonished the members that the darkest hour is before dawn.
“Just when things become hard, know that your hour of blessing is near. Jacob was blessed after his hip was out of the joint as he wrestled with a man. The man said, “Let me go, for the day breaks.” But Jacob answered, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” He knew it was not just a stranger but an angel of God with his blessings. Be aware of your faith, hold fast to it and the Lord will bless you,” The Apostle said.
After the divine service, President Lungu thanked the New Apostolic Church for allowing him and those in his entourage to join with them in fellowship.
“I thank the New Apostolic Church for allowing me and all those with me to congregate here, we are all children of God,” President Lungu said.
President Lungu appealed to the church for prayers and guidance to the nation.
“When you see us going astray, as a church come and counsel us. I lead an open-door government and we need the church to play a role,” he said.
2,012 members and guests attended the service.
