Viral message example-
A Zion Christian Church prophet, Alec Ndiwane was on a safari when he was allegedly attacked by lions. He reportedly provoked them to inspire faith in the members of his church.
The man reportedly fell into a trance and began speaking in tongues before “charging at” a pride of lions in South Africa’s notable Kruger National Park. The man is lucky to have left the scene with his life, because sprinting toward a pride of lions who are busy eating a previous victim is obviously not a good idea.
