A popular US Pastor who disobeyed President Donald Trump’s order on religious gatherings and held a Mother’s Day Church service has tested positive for coronavirus.
Redwood Valley Assembly of God Church pastor Jack McMillin in California tested positive for coronavirus and was taken to the hospital after developing pneumonia resulting from coronavirus.
The pastor’s wife, Sharon disclosed McMillin’s diagnosis on Facebook.
Her post read: “I was going to post something in place of pastor sermon today but I’ve been on phone with so many people and health departments that I didn’t get it done.
“Just remember God is a big and mighty God, and he’s got us covered, remember Pastor Jack in the hospital with pneumonia from the COVID-19 virus. Thank you for all the prayers!”
On May 10, McMilin held a Mother’s Day service at Redwood Valley Assembly of God church.
He also shared a Facebook post of a woman holding a placard that reads: “Why can we go to Walmart but not Church!?”
McMilin had captioned the photo: “We need to start asking this more often and with greater volume.”
