View pictures in App save up to 80% data. Its evident that most Pastors dependent largely on offerings and tithes from their followers. This was before coronavirus pandemic. But since the churches were closed, many pastors have been struggling to make the ends meet. To some it has been a bit difficult even to run their online services since they are receiving little or no support from Kenyans. At this time it has been even difficult to stage-manage miracles that used to bring many people to church and thus more earnings.
Very few pastors are running their online services n social media and on TV. The “panda mbengu”(sow a seed) pastors have really been affected since there are no resources to air their messages. Moreover, Kenyans and Christians worldwide have been enlightened therefore their probability of them sending the Mpesa support is as low as 0.1 percent. Before this, pastors could harvest much from poor Christians who want to get miracles from God the father.
One thing you didn't know however is that this is absolutely opposite with the ministry of Repentance and holiness. The ministry is led by the Prophet Dr Owour who is mostly referred to as the 'Mightiest Prophets.' Everything seem to work normal for him since he has been able to air his global services so frequent such that he only skips a day then the following day he brings a word explosion. To make it more confusing, he has continued to blast pastors running their services with Mpesa messages on the bottom of their screens. He has called them 'panda mbengu' pastors and their gospel as the gospel of money. On contrary to them, he has never been heard preaching about giving or extorting funds from his followers.Below is a photo of him during his visit in jonkoping, Sweden.

To make the story short, this is a religious leader who instead of stealing money from the congregation, he offers his wealth to help them. There are so many students benefiting from his school fees program where he pays school fess and goes shopping for them. Moreover, the poor and the orphans do receive food and needs from his office in Nairobi. He extends this to the healed to make sure that they have better life after healing. For instance after the twins who were lunatics got healed, his office organized for a place to stay and even opened a car wash for them. This is quite surprising at this time when the world is under the judgement of coronavirus. The economy globally has been paralyzed with business performing poorly.Below is a photo of him with top leaders in the world: View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

In conclusion, the question that remains in our minds is why should the religious leaders face financial crisis? They worship God who is the creator of the heaven and earth. He is the owner of everything on earth, therefore they cannot lack. Psalms 23; ''The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, he leaded me beside the still waters,He restores my soul, he leaded me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.''. Mathews 6: 31-34, “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’. For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
