Plans to have a renowned Nigerian worshipper Jimmy D Psalmist performing in Malawi have been jeopardized as the country is experiencing a second wave of novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The worshiper was anticipated to perform at Crossover night prayers conducted by the Living Word Evangelistic Church (LIWEC) on 31 December 2020 at Mpira House in Blantyre.
According to the statement released by the church, contract discussion processes have been cancelled due to unfavorable circumstances that have been imposed by the COVID-19 Task Force recently.
“Unfortunately the uncertainty that has been caused by the limitation of the gathering to 100 has jeopardized the process, having failed to finalise a contract with the renowned artist.”
Nevertheless, the church is undaunted and it will proceed with the planned crossover night prayers which will be led by Prophet David F. Mbewe.
“Meanwhile we are calling for all people to come through in large numbers as this crossover night it is an ideal Kickstarter for the year 2021.”
And confirming on the development through a Facebook post Psalmist explained to have failed to come to Malawi due to escalating cases of Covid19 cases in Malawi.
He however urged Christians under the ministry to continue with the fellowship citing it is the will of God for such arrangement to be carried out.
Psalmist said; “i regret to announce that due to the recent wave of the covid-19 pandemic around the world, i will not be performing at this event. i trust GOD that he will grant us the privilege to fellowship together in the nearest future.”
“Nevertheless make sure you cross over praising God. God bless and keep you, see you in 2021.”
Last week, Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 ordered closure of land boarders and restricted number of people intended to patronise any event to a maximum of 100.
