“I have not had one ounce of fear or doubt during this whole experience,” he said. “The last thing we need is for people to be filled with fear.”
As soon as he started to feel bad, Pastor Mullins isolated himself and his family. He urges others in his church community to do the same.
“The moment you have a high temperature, isolate yourself and stay isolated.”
During the video, Pastor Mullins asked the Life Church Parish to pray for health care workers, the elderly and his family.
“I have been preaching faith and I encourage each and every one of you to walk in faith,” he said.
