After the story went viral, members of the church defended their pastor who was thoroughly criticized for this practice and said eating grass has not only brought them closer to God but also heals them of illnesses.
'Yes, we eat grass and we're proud of it because it demonstrates that, with God's power, we can do anything,' Rosemary Phetha told South Africa's Times Live.
Testimony abound from members claiming they were healed after eating the grass.
A 21-year-old says after battling sore throat for more than a year, she was healed after eating the grass. Doreen Kgatle, 27, of Ga-rankuwa, suffered a stroke two years ago. Kgatle said,
'I could not walk but soon after the grass, as the pastor had ordered, I started gaining strength and an hour later I could walk again,' said Kgatle.
Pictures from the church's Facebook page shows dozens of the members up after obey their pastor and eating grass. Well, what can i say?
