Rev Lucy Natasha is thankful to her mother Pastor Esther Wanjiru for her constant prayers and recently shared the same with her followers. Taking to Instagram, Natasha reposted her mum’s post that was a word of encouragement to her.

“Father bless our Children Supernaturally. With my daughter the Oracle of God. May the Heavens cover our Children with the blood of Jesus forever. Stay connected to the Unchangeable Changer,” read the post.

In recent weeks, Rev Natasha has been on the receiving end of a bashing from netizens who had an issue with her tattoo. While receiving her Covid-19 jab, many spotted an Oracle tattoo and wondered whether a preacher of the word should have one.

Some went ahead to quote Leviticus 19:28: 'Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.’

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua jumped to the defense of Rev Natasha and encouraged the preacher to continue spreading God’s word and turn a deaf ear to her critics.

“Rev. Lucy Natasha, preach on and turn your back to the critics, sceptics and naysayers. People will always talk tattoo or no tattoo. Shine on for the Lord and reach out to souls. There's nothing you can do to please everyone!” he tweeted.

Earlier Natasha had responded to those claiming she was ‘mixing light and darkness’ by saying it is not easy to pursue God’s calling. She encouraged those in similar situations to remain steadfast in their course as they may never get complete approval.

“One of the hardest struggles you’ll encounter in life is finding the strength and courage to do what God is calling you to do. Don’t let the critics, naysayers, or negative people discourage you from obedience.

“As much as we would love the complete approval, acceptance, and support of others, we may not always get it. Nevertheless, we must continue to be obedient,” she wrote.
