Batshu Hails St John’s Apostolic Mission for Fundraising

| January 7, 2015

Minister of Labour and Home Affairs, Mr Edwin Batshu has commended members of St John’s Apostolic Faith Mission in Botswana for their continued commitment to raise funds for their church.

Speaking at the thanksgiving and fund raising event recently, Mr Batshu said it was through collective efforts and support of all church members that the day was successful.

He said faith should be accompanied by actions, adding that one should learn to give in order to receive more blessings.

Mr Batshu, who is also the MP for Nkange , said the funds would assist in the running of the church.

Minister Batshu added that churches just like other organisations needed funds to function properly.

He noted that a church had a major role to play in the running of the country as they continue to pray for peace and good working relationships in the country.

Mr Batshu said his ministry is trying to reduce the number of churches opened in the country by changing some of the procedures in the application form, which include the change of members from 10 to 250 for a church to be registered.

For his part, Bishop Phillip Maluke said the main aim of the day was to appreciate what they had achieved in 2014 as a church and also raise funds.

He said by contributing, one shows love and commitment to the church and encouraged members to contribute what they had, saying that they would receive more in return.
