Members Of Grass Eating Church Swear They Received Healings After Eating Grass (Photos)
Days after series of online complaints were prompted because a South African preacher, Pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries, made his congregation eat grass in order to 'be closer to God' before stamping on them, his members have come out to defend their pastor. Yes, we eat
grass and we're proud of it because it demonstrates that, with God's power, we can do anything," one of his members Rosemary Phetha told South Africa's Times Live. According to the 21-year-old Unisa law student, she had been battling a sore throat for more than a year. She claims it was healed after Daniel "turned me into a sheep and instructed me to eat grass". Another member, 27-year-old Doreen Kgatle who suffered a stroke two years ago said: "I could not walk but soon after eating the grass, as the pastor had ordered, I started gaining strength and an hour later I could walk again. Reports from Souh Africa say it's cos of these 'miracles' that people from all walks of life, including teachers, nurses and accountants, whose luxury German sedans adorn the church's parking lot keep getting attracted to Pastor Lesego Daniel's church. These people visit in thousands to buy pastor Daniel's "Miracle" bumper stickers, little bottles of "anointing oil" which the pastor says possess special powers. If you do not have cash, you can swipe your bank card. When Pastor Daniel speaks in tongues, his followers go into a trance, mumbling words in a strange language. Meanwhile, dozens of his members, on the other hand, who didn't get 'healed' after eating the grass, were seen in new pictures getting sick in the toilets, clutching their stomachs, vomiting in sinks and buckets.
