President Edgar Lungu says those who believe in God can overcome any challenge that comes their way.

President Lungu was speaking during mass at St John’s Cathedral in Kasama today.

“Today is a great day n the Christian calendar. We have been observing the death and rising of our Lord Jesus Christ. I think every Christian appreciates this day. I should say that as a believer in Jesus Christ, and particularly those of us in leadership we realise that the resurrection of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ marks an assurance that those of us who believe in him will surely find peace. After conquering death, what can our Lord Jesus Christ fail to conquer? If our Lord overcame death, what is it that we cannot overcome?” President Lungu asked.

“So those of us who believe in him and hold on to him in our nation and in our hearts, we will overcome all problems, nothing is impossible with him.”

He also said he would continue collaborating with the church in matters of development.

“So I call upon the church to continue collaborating with us in our quest to bring peace and prosperity to the people of Zambia and know that you assistance is needed not only for the ministry of the gospel but also in dealing with health, in dealing with the need for education…so I will keep collaborating with the church no matter what others will say. I will continue calling on the church whether it is Monday, Tuesday or any other day,” said President Lungu.
