A pastor in Mozambique lost his life after attempting to fast for 40 Days like Jesus Christ did in the Bible.

Pastor Francisco Barajah, the founder of Santa Trindade Evangelical church died at a hospital after a diagnosis with cute anaemia and failure of digestive organs.

After 25 days without food or water, the 39 year old had lost weight and he couldn't even stand up. 

His relatives and followers took him to the hospital where he was hydrated with serums and liquid foods but it was too late.

Members of the church said it was common for them to fast but not for that long.

His brother however Rubbished claims that the pastor died from anaemia and claimed he died from low blood pressure.
