A young South-African pastor is raising eyebrows and making headlines amid reports that he coerces members of his congregation eat grass in order to become closer to God.

“Sleep,” he screams. Six people in the marquee immediately go into deep slumber.
The “miracle man” orders other congregants to slap and trample on them. But the sleepers remain rigid and unresponsive.
Several minutes later, he yells: “Wake up,”and they break out of their deep sleep.
“You can leave them like this for six months. I love this, I don’t want to be bored. You can even make police go to sleep when they come to arrest you,” the “miracle man” preaches as he paces around the marquee.
These are some of the “miracles” that draw hundreds of people from as far away as Limpopo to pastor Lesego Daniel’s Rabboni Centre Ministries in Garankuwa, north of Pretoria, where they are, among other things, made to eat grass.
“Yes, we eat grass and we’re proud of it because it demonstrates that, with God’s power, we can do anything,” says Rosemary Phetha.
The 21-year-old Unisa law student says she had been battling a sore throat for more than a year. She claims it was healed after Daniel “turned me into a sheep and instructed me to eat grass”.
The pastor’s “miracles” attract people from all walks of life, including teachers, nurses and accountants, whose luxury German sedans adorn the church’s parking lot.
