Family conference finished

I never posted this article on our family conference.  Here it is a few days late:

On Monday night, we finished up our family conference.  God blessed in tremendous ways.  Pastor Austin Gardner preached and did a wonderful job.   He  talked about men mistreating their wives.  At the end of the service, we had three African couples come down and pray together.  This doesn’t sound like a whole lot to most but when you have never had it happen once before this week, three in one service is a lot.

At the very end of the service, a man stood up and asked for prayer and forgiveness.  He told us that he has recently hit his wife (unfortunately this happens all the time here).  He said that he did wrong and that they were heading for divorce.  This man told me this morning that they ate breakfast yesterday and today together.  He told me they haven’t done that is a very long time.  He said that they are talking again.
