Mrs. Moipone Mosiapane is full of gratitude to the Almighty God for what He has done in her life during the COVID-19 pandemic. Mrs. Mosiapane started coming to Unity Fellowship Church in 2013 as a visitor on special services such as the all-night prayer. After the 2020 Exodus 40 days of fasting and prayer, she decided that she wants to be a member of the church. On Sunday the 23rd of February 2020, after the church service, she attended a group counselling session and completed the church membership forms. During the counselling session, she asked for advice concerning tithe since where she used to fellowship, she would tithe from her nett salary. She was advised that she needed to tithe from her gross salary. After the counselling session on her way home, she was worried about how she was going to tithe from her gross salary since that is not the salary that gets into her bank account. Moreover, her husband was not working at that time, so she was responsible for her family expenses.
As hard as it was for her, she decided to obey because she had heard the Servant of God Pastor Mukhuba teaching about the importance and power of obedience. Four days after being advised about tithe she received her salary. She then paid her tithe from the gross salary as advised. It was a painful act of obedience since she had many financial commitments.
On the 3rd of April 2020, she watched the Standard Is Raised Online All-Night Prayer Service. During the service, she offered her last R200 as the Isaac sacrificial offering. Afterward, she emailed the proof of payment of her offering to the church with a prayer request that the Servant of God Pastor Mukhuba should pray for her so that she can offer her tithe with a cheerful heart. After two weeks a miracle happened, God blessed her husband with a permanent job. Ever since she knew her husband in 2011, he never had a permanent job. Moreover, the temporary contract jobs he used to get were not even related to his qualification. The Lord made a way for him because of the faithfulness of Mrs. Mosiapane. He got a permanent Job during the COVID-19 national lockdown where people are losing their jobs because of the economic strain. Mrs. Mosiapane is now offering her tithe with a cheerful heart and we give glory to God. God never put to shame those who hope and trust in Him.

Furthermore, during the Lockdown Online Church Services the Servant of God Pastor Mukhuba has been preaching about trusting upon the Lord. Pastor Mukhuba quoted several scriptures to strengthen and encourage the children of God during the COVID-19 pandemic. One preaching quoted by Mrs. Mosiapane was of “no abandonment no decay” which was preached on the 12th of April 2020 during the Resurrection Sunday. Mrs. Mosiapane was connected during all the online church services to an extent that she would watch the Sunday school Bible story cartoons. The online church services equipped Mrs. Mosiapane.

On the 1st of June 2020, during the level 3 national lockdown the company that Mrs. Mosiapane works for resumed operation. Mrs. Mosiapane went to work for three days that week. On the 8th of June 2020, when she was on her way to work, one of her colleagues informed her that there was a COVID-19 positive case in their department. The person who was infected was Mrs. Mosiapane's close friend and colleague. Mrs. Mosiapane already had close contact with her friend and the colleague who called was telling her that she should go back home. However, Mrs. Mosiapane then received a call from one of the office managers informing her to go to work and evacuate the people who were already in the building, so that they could disinfect the whole building. Mrs. Mosiapane did as she was instructed and then went home to self-quarantine.

On the 10th of June 2020, her friend who tested positive passed on due to the COVID-19. Mrs. Mosiapane’s other colleagues went for COVID-19 testing and most of them tested positive. The colleagues who tested positive were those she had contact with. On Sunday morning the 14th of June 2020, she was troubled because of the update messages she was receiving of COVID-19 positive cases from her workplace. Mrs. Mosiapane watched the online church Sunday service. During the service Pastor Mukhuba said that she prayed for the whole yard of the church and therefore, the pool of Bethesda is stirred. She then said that if anyone needs the healing touch of the Lord, they should come to church and do a U-turn. Mrs. Mosiapane took the advice from the Pastor and she went to church to do a U-turn the same day after the service.

On the 15th of June 2020, she went to Lancet for COVID-19 testing. The line was very long of people who were there to do the test. When three people who were before her went inside to do the test, she started praying and meditating on almost all the scriptures taught during the lockdown. One of the scriptures she meditated upon was Psalm 91 and she was even having it on her UBN mask that she was wearing. She also remembered the story of Naaman who had leprosy, prophet Elisha instructed him to dip himself in the Jordan river seven times to receive his healing (2 Kings 5:10). She then started to move her body sideways seven times as a prophetic act.

While waiting they were told that the COVID-19 test procedure conducted was the nasal swab because the other optional test kits were finished. The nasal swab test is painful since a 6-inch-long swab is inserted through each nostril to the cavity between the nose and mouth for 15 seconds while rotating several times. Mrs. Mosiapane was scared of the nasal swab test as she saw people who did it were in pain. When it was her turn, she went in wearing her UBN Psalm 91 Fire Mask. She then asked the nurse if the throat swab test was available which is not as painful as the nasal swab. The favour of the Lord was upon her and the nurse agreed to perform the throat swab. Immediately she felt the presence of the Lord and she had faith that the Lord had not forsaken her. She did the COVID-19 throat swab test and the next day she received her results indicating that she is negative. Mrs. Mosiapane gives glory to God for the protection she received from the Lord since some of her colleagues who were in the line tested positive. We serve a God who cares about us!
