The founder of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Mensa Otabil has encouraged his congregants not to be afraid or panic in the wake of the spread of Coronavirus in the country.
Instead, he has given his congregants hope that they will survive the pandemic and life will be restored to normalcy.
“Don’t fear, don’t be afraid, its something that has hit us, it’s not the end of the world, we’ll survive this and we’ll be alive, and the world will continue to go on and, so, let’s do the right things, let’s stop the spread of the virus and lets get back to our normal lives as quickly as its practically possible,” Pastor Otabil said in a Facebook video inviting his congregants to worship with him online due to the ban on church services.
