IOL: Dead pastor lies at funeral home for 3 months as his family wait for his resurrection
"For three months, Pastor Siva Moodley's body has been lying in a funeral home in Fourways, Gauteng, because his family is praying for his resurrection. 

Moodley, 53, founder of The Miracle Centre in the north of Johannesburg, died on August 15 after falling ill. Since his death, his body has been kept at Martin's Funeral Home in Fourways.

Martin du Toit, the manager at the funeral home, told the City Press that shortly after his death, Moodley's family and members of the church used to visit the funeral home to pray for his resurrection. But the visits have since stopped.
