The situation that still weighs heavy is the reconcilliation of the 2 church elders, who are also brothers. It was a year ago we recieved news of the teaching elder’s affair with a lady in the church, who happened to be his wife’s sister. It really shook the Awa church, discrediting God’s reputation in the Awa community.
Now, a year later the church is stabilizing, and we’re thankful for the growth among the believers and especially the repentance demonstrated. But the lack of forgiveness stands in the way of reconcilliation. We’re praying the church’s reception of the repentant elder would demonstrate before the watching community the forgiveness and acceptance we have in Christ. Would you continue to pray for real reconcilliation in the Awa church with us?
