Creflo Dollar Ministries South Africa Celebrates Life and Impact of Global Icon
Pastor Creflo Dollar issue the following statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela:
To all of our partners in South Africa, today we lost a great man. But we really didn’t lose him, because we know that to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. Iit was the passing of a great man, Nelson Mandela, who I refer to as the father of democracy. Our prayers go out with a nation, our prayers go out for a nation, our prayers go out for a people who had the opportunity to reap the benefits of a great man of God.
We are grateful and thankful for the results of this man’s life. In the love, in the unity, in just the faith that the people of South Africa could walk in as a result of what he demonstrated. We celebrate his life, and we celebrate his legacy.
