UNITED Family International Church is providing three buses to help international visitors that have registered with the church and are in need of transport assistance, a senior church official has said.

The church’s spokesperson Pastor Prime Kufakunesu said the arrangement was necessitated by the church’s realisation that some international visitors might be working on a tight budget hence the gesture by the church to help in any way it could.

“We realised that some of the international visitors might be working on very limited resources hence the help we have extended to them,” he said.

Pastor Kufakunesu also explained that the provision of transport to the international visitors who registered with the church made it easier for the visitors to access the Judgment Night venue and the seats reserved for the visitors in the stadium.

“We also considered that if we transport these visitors using buses, it will be easy for them to get into the stadium since the buses will carry a substantial number at a time and it will be easy for the ushers to identify them and in turn allocate places for them to sit,” he said.

The buses, Pastor Kufakunesu said, will do several trips as the number of international visitors that have registered with the church keep on growing by the day.

“I don’t know how many trips each bus will make on the day as the number of people registering with us is ever increasing,” he explained, adding that the church’s Logistics department was seized with the task of ensuring every international visitor who needed assistance with transport was helped.

Meanwhile, hotels in Harare have recorded significant volumes in room occupancy with some reportedly full by yesterday.

Judgment Night has become a huge event attracting people from outside boosting what Pastor Kufakunesu termed “religious tourism”.

“While as a church we are happy that people will be helped spiritually through the powerful word that our Father, Prophet (Emmanuel) Makandiwa will dish out on the day, we are also cognisant that business will benefit from the event hence the various partnerships we have entered with a lot of service providers.

“A lot of companies have come on board to assist us in making this event what it is and we are very grateful that they have helped in ensuring the Word of God is preached to all nations through this global event we have dubbed ‘Judgment Night’,” Pastor Kufakunesu said.

Judgment Night, he said, was set to become a huge tourist attraction which, if properly marketed, will surely help grow the country’s tourism industry in as much as it will help in “making disciples of all nations.”

Minister of Tourism and Hospitality Industry Cde Walter Mzembi recently told journalists that Government was fully behind Judgment Night and the event had potential to grow the tourism industry exponentially.
