Masilo pays tribute to church

Bethel Church for all Nations has constructed and donated a two-bedroomed self-contained house to Basinyi family at Mmokolodi.

The house is number 824 under Presidential Housing Appeal initiative, which is President Lt. Gen Dr Seretse Khama Ian Khama’s brainchild and the third to be built in the village.

 Presidential Housing Appeal committee representative, Col Duke Masilo applauded the church for the gesture, saying every donation to the committee was much cherished.

 Col Masilo said churches in general had been supporting the initiative throughout the country.

 He noted that the church had been pinnacle to the development of the country and he gave example of the education sector, where the church built mission schools.

Apart from that, he said the church also helped to develop the people’s spiritual life through the teachings of the gospel.

 He further commended Bethel Church for all Nations for having sacrificed its own building project in order to assist the Basinyi family, adding that such effort took great sacrifice.

 The church overseer, Prophet Julius Haamachenje said it gave a great relief that the project had finally been completed and handed over to the family.

He said the project was full of challenges, citing shortage of finances and manpower as some of the chief challenges that even contributed to the delay.

He stated that the church had to suspend its church building project to assist the Basinyi family, which had its house burnt down, adding that they spent P170 000 excluding labour, which was offered for free by the church members.

Prophet Haamachenje said the church took delight in giving to the community and being part of the society, adding that they had a special relationship with Mokolodi residents.

Bethel Church for all Nations overseer said their donation to the Basinyi family was also an answer to a call from President Khama to help the needy in the society.

Member of Parliament, Maj. Gen. Pius Mokgware said the church was core to the development of Botswana society.

He said the country was mostly Christian and the country constitution allowed that, hence the church formed part of the society growth.

 He also commend the family for having chosen to trust in God amid all their challenges.

Family representative, Ms Tlhapi Basinyi thanked the family and added that one of his children attends the church, hence they offered to assist when their house was engulfed by fire.

 The house is made up of two bedrooms, a kitchen, a seating room, a bathroom and a toilet. ENDS
