This was the moment prominent businessman/preacher Uebert Angel met the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapaksa at his home in the capital Colombo.
The Spirit Embassy: GoodNews church founder spent six days in Sri Lanka starting last week Tuesday for the church’s #GoodNewsSriLanka conference.
Not so much is known about the details of the meeting.
Thousands of people attended the conference and the security provided by the government was tight. Last year terrorists bombed hotels and a church and the government was not taking any chances with the army and police with guns and sniffer dogs patrolling the venues.
Dubbed #GoodNewsSriLanka, the Spirit Embassy: GoodNews church founder was hosted by his spiritual son Prophet Jerome Fernando who is resident there. In pictures posted on Instagram, long winding queues of people waiting to enter the venue of the conference could be seen.
“It’s always a joy seeing souls coming to receive JESUS as their LORD and SAVIOUR. Very exciting. It’s a feeling you can’t easily shake off,” Angel wrote on his official instagram account.
“Many people turned to Christ right from the world and from many other religions. Sri Lanka was blessed by our dear LORD. Ain’t JESUS just beautiful? Sure HE IS. Thank you LORD!”
In July last year Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni tweeted PICTURES of his meeting with Angel. According to Museveni, Angel and fellow preacher Ronnie Makabai based in Kampala “indicated their interest to invest in tourism and pharmaceutical sectors.”
Museveni took to Twitter telling his 1.1million followers of the meeting with Angel.
“Met Uebert Angel, a televangelist and businessman, who is founder of Spirit Embassy in the UK and Bro. Ronnie Makabai of ETM International Church here in Kampala. They indicated their interest to invest in tourism and pharmaceutical sectors. Government will support them,” he said.
The self-styled ‘serial investor’ later bought a 140 acre island in Uganda. The island is 40 minutes from Entebbe and is surrounded by Lake Victoria, the second biggest lake in the world.
The island located in the Kalangala District has much sought after white sand beaches. We understand Angel wants to leverage on that and build a holiday resort. Nehanda Radio
