ZIMBABWE’S Grace International Church in Harare has begun selling specially anointed ballpoint pens to students sitting for O’Level and A’Level examinations claiming using them will guarantee success.
Last Sunday, Prophet Sham Hungwe of the church, which is located at the Machipisa Shopping Centre in Harare, handed out hundreds of the pens to students who are about to sit for exams. These pens which cost at least ¢15 were being sold for different amounts ranging between $1 and $20 depending on what you can afford.
With Zimbabwe’s O’ Level and A’Level examinations around the corner, the pens sold like hot cakes and congregants were seen scrambling to the pulpit to get them. Prophet Sham said those who are sitting for their exams only needed faith and the anointed pen to pass.
He added: “It is anointed and I declare passes when your children sit for exams and when you sit for your exams. They are said to work for anyone who is sitting for any test.
“My son is not very bright and I think this will help him. With the knowledge he has acquired and this pen from the man of God, I think it is going to work.”
One female congregants parted ways with more than $10 for a pen as they were told the more they give, the more their faith and the more their children will pass. One of the congregants testified that he scored 14 points in his A’Level’s last year after using the pen he was given by Prophet Sham.
Prophet Sham went on to perform a number of miracles before thousands of worshippers who attended the service. A number of people gave testimonies of deliverance after getting prayers and anointing water from the man of God.
