In an interview with Betty Kyallo, Reverend Lucy Natasha talked about how coronavirus has affected her million shilling church ministry.
For a woman who traverses countries preaching the gospel, the pandemic has been a big blow to her business.
‘LIFE HAS REALLY CHANGED BECAUSE OF COVID-19, NOBODY CAN TRAVEL ANYWHERE, EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN.
WE CANNOT GATHER AT CHURCHES ANYMORE AND IT’S A TRYING TIME GLOBALLY. WE CAN’T WAIT FOR NORMALCY TO RETURN.
WE ALREADY HAD A CALENDAR FOR THE EVENTS TO RUN THIS YEAR BUT WE HAD TO POSTPONE ALL OUR CONFERENCES IN DIFFERENT PLACES/COUNTRIES.’
On what she misses most, Rev Natasha said
PREACHING ON YOU TUBE IS NOT THE SAME AS PREACHING IN CHURCH.
WE MISS THE ONE ON ONE INTERACTIONS.
THE SERVICES ARE ONGOING BUT PEOPLE ARE MORE COMMITTED WHEN IT’S A PHYSICAL SERVICE.
IT BRINGS OUT A STRONGER SENSE OF BELONGING.
OUR FOLLOWERS ARE ALSO TRYING TO FOLLOW UP THE TEACHINGS.’
‘I DO NOT BELIEVE GOD IS ANGRY AT US. THIS IS JUST SOMETHING GOD ALLOWS PEOPLE TO GO THOUGH BUT IT HAS AN END.’
Stay at home, sanitize and keep the required social distance.
