One thought on “Africa Unite: Tb Joshua’s Tearful Song Goes Viral!

  1. Great message of wisdom, reconciliation and unity from the Prophet of our era, to the powers, the commons and all living on the continent of Africa. Xenophobia is no panacea to the economic, social or political crisis in any African nation. With unity through acceptance, inclucivity, tolerance, genuine brotherhood and Godly love, Africa and Africans can exhibit and sustain socio-economic and political resilience that will foster lasting solutions to the common calamities that have bedeviled the continent. May Yahweh Himself unleash his Love, Mercy, Peace and Grace upon the continent of Africa and all lawful leaders of the Land. Thank you Prophet TB Joshua for availing yourself to be used by God to establish His purpose for our world today. Emmanuel!
