For a long time, preachers and men of the cloth have been relegated to the traditional pulpits, limited to Sunday services and given a narrowed scope of function by tradition and religion. Enter Major 1, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – a parable to those who can’t discern his calling, an enigmatic force to be reckoned with and a magnificent ambassador of the prophetic ministry to the nations. The Malawian born Prophet, brandishing both charisma and pizazz takes to the green in a charity golf designed to mobilise funds for the Beacon Of Hope, an initiative set up for the benefit of thousands of communities in accordance with the Prophet’s own vision. The Golf day is hosted by Prophet Shepherd Bushiri Ministries in Gauteng, at the Els Club – Copperleaf. Guided by the scriptures that mandate all believers to give to the less fortunate, Major 1 has engaged his corporate finesse and influence to stir support for non- profit organisations, fuelling his Beacon Of Hope as an example.
Major 1 set up Beacon of Hope, which is headed by his ever-gracious wife, Prophetess Mary Bushiri to intervene in social development and empowerment issues. Beacon of Hope invades disaster struck areas, bringing both physical and spiritual relief. Entering prisons and bulldozing hunger struck areas, the Beacon of Hope team led by Prophet Shepherd Bushiri seeks to bring the love of God to a lost and dying world. Touching lives and bringing solutions to problems as stipulated by scripture – the Golf day today seeks to inject resources into the far reaching arm of the intervention.
Speaking to Beacon Of Hope Co-ordinator and NPO big wigs, Anna- Marie Dejager and Mr Shadrack Longwe respectively, MyAfrica Now found this event to be tastefully put together to the glory of the God Of Major 1. Indeed it is time to take over, invade and excel. The programme has already begun to make formidable change in the community landscape, changing the way that Christians view charity, allowing church members to become game changers and extending the hand of fellowship to thousands including Maula Prison in Malawi, Communities in informal settlements in Diepsloet, Gauteng as well as changing the lives of orphans and the under privileged in Rustenburg and South Sudan. The leadership of Beacon of Hope expressed excitement at the plans for a massive relief roll out in the festive season with a spill over into the new year. Major 1 himself leads by example, calling on fellow Christians to become a part of the solution, he is quoted thus : ” No-one is too poor that he cannot give” urging one and all to participate in community development.
This event is the first of its kind and promises to bring thousands to the knowledge and celebration of Christ.
