Evelyn and different church ministers commented on Prophet T.B Joshua’s humble beginnings before leading the procession on the same path the late preacher walked every day on the walkway of prayer at the Synagogue.
Three ‘meditative laps’ of The SCOAN Prayer Mountain was held in honour of the memory of Prophet T.B. Joshua before the attendees gathered at the ‘the Junction of the Cross’ to drop their burning candles.
