God send men are there. Christianity has nothing to with them. They are just vesels of honour by God. Christianity is of God and ends with God. Christianity is not competition. Christianity is not human but divine so anyone who exalts prophets and preachers to levels of papalizing is deceived to say the least. Be balanced in your approach @ Tawanda wekuUFIC!

asi New Life Covenant choir ine international standard it's just that they do not record. I wld say Covenant Praise is the best followed by Ufic choir but since nlcc is not there Ufic inotora mukombe. The greatest prophet alive in out time is Prophet TB Joshua

Jesuit Priest - 5 September 2014

Jesus himself was crusified by priests. Its not a secret that you serve the devil. This time the church has more glory and you will never succeed in terminating the mandate of our Father Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa.
