Death has befallen an African Archbishop right in front of his own church members while baptizing some people.

Andries Moeti was a South African Archbishop died during baptism, Daily Sun SA reports.

The cleric usually went under water for a minute to pray before baptising new members. However, on Sunday, the 36-year-old leader of New Heaven Apostolic Church in Marobjane Village, Limpopo, drowned in front of church members who were queueing up to be baptised.

When people realised the archbishop had been under water for a while, they screamed for help as they were afraid to go in and rescue him.

His mum, Elisa Moeti (60), told Daily Sun it was hard for church members and his family to accept Andries’ death.

“We are still shocked because he always went to the stream to pray and baptise people. He would go into the water for a minute before letting his congregants go in for prayers.

“I believe his death was God’s will because those who were there when he drowned told us the incident was mysterious,” said Elisa.

His dad, James Seshoka (57), said it was a sad moment when the search and rescue unit recovered his body from the water. Church members were fainting and crying.

The archbishop will be laid to rest in Marobjane tomorrow.

He leaves behind his wife and three children.

Elisa, who worked closely with her son, said she would look after the church and his family.

cool

It's not a new thing please, he simply died in active service. Even though I am already lifeless, I still want to die as Nigerian president after throwing the economy into recession and chasing away investors.

His flock are really sheeps.

I can't believe they can be so clueless as to watch the helpless man drown without lifting a finger to help.

What did they think he was doing under the water? Consulting with the marine spirits?

May his soul rest in peace.

Death is not the end of life,What happens after death is what matters. U either spend eternity with Christ which is far better than being on this earth or you spend eternity in hell.

I look forward to the day I'll depart this world and be with Christ, But first I have a mission to complete.

Alepa u need Jesus in your life, he loves u and wants to have a relationship with you.
