This is indeed a very terrible tragedy. This is not pleasant. I can't call this the will of God.

Prepare oooh!! As you are moving,
traveling,before you sleep, as you are talking ,as you are laughing be alert ooh! Always tell Jesus to forgive all your sins and have mercy on you. We are in dangerous times were your soul needs to be alert and prepared... This is not a time where you see sick people, accident victim etc and then you begin to think of only medication... As you are taking them for medication, tell them to accept Jesus and repent. Before you sleep, tell Jesus to forgive a your sins ooh.. Some people just sleep and face bandit in the midnight. It is not your portion in Jesus name. Amen. Be prepared!!!
