Pastors pray to stop social ills in Windmill Park


Pastors from various churches in Windmill Park, a social worker and members of the community held an anti-crime prayer session on February 13.

The prayer, held at the Vultures sports ground in Windmill Park, was led by Pastor Joshua Dywili of the Unlimited Worshipers of God Church.

Attendees included Moses Linda of Fountain of Christ Ministries Church, Pastor Chris Leputu of Bethel Ministries Church, Pastor Arnold Fortuin of Outreach For Christ Ministries Church and social worker Maria Gaba.

Dywili said it is important for pastors and community members to seek God’s intervention to deal with the scourge of crime in the township.

“God has asked me to organize this prayer session with other pastors and the community. We find deaths almost every week and while other various crimes are committed daily, I believe that God will stop such evil by our prayers,” Dywili said.

Linda said it is only God who has the power to stop their community.
“If we sincerely pray to him, he will stop these violent crimes,” Linda said.

Leputu told attendees that God has chosen pastors to be guardians of his kingdom.

“When there are problems in society, as pastors we have to act and lead people to God so that the problems are alleviated,” Leputu said.

Pastor Fortuin said they were there to pray as the killings got out of control.

“Our problems have been exacerbated here in Windmill Park, so we need God in disparate ways.”
Gaba said many bad things are happening in their area.

“We have drug addicts and criminals, but this prayer will help us to stop and eradicate all these evils,” Gaba said.
