Sister Julia moved the crowd with her melodies praising the lord. Her vocals were designed to invite the holy spirit and awe the congregation. Song and dance showered Mercy of Christ Church. Pastor Victor was indeed blessed to have Julia as his househelp and lead singer in his church. He held Margret’s hand tightly and thanked heavens for such a beautiful wife full of wisdom to choose Julia as their maid. He moved to the pulpit and gave a powerful sermon not forgetting to mention tithing faithfully. How else would he sustain his posh lifestyle without touching on the sensitive point?
Sunday afternoons were meant for married couples where they would get counseling on how to strengthen their bond. Victor had been married for thirty years thus he was well versed on marital issues. He condemned immorality and promiscuity, he prayed for couples and rebuked the devil. He was a role model and a man of great faith. At home, Victor was the best husband and father anybody would wish to have. If perfect was a person then it would be him. Once in a while, he would attend private seminars and come back more strengthened to serve the Lord.
Working for the Victor’s had strengthened Julia’s faith especially when the Pastor would tutor her privately on Bible study. It had earned her a fat bank account and great praises from Margaret, since she loved spiritual people around her children. One time her five-year-old daughter had reported to her that her father had fallen on aunt Julia. She explained to the little one that accidents are common and it should not sadden her because her aunt was crying. Victor had already reported to his wife that he had a small accident in the house that shocked their daughter.
For three years now, Victor had an affair with Julia. He would go to his prayer room in their residence and engage in the sin of flesh as he called it. The devil was always blamed and they would cleanse themselves. His daughter had bumped into them in the kitchen but she was too young to understand. Moans of pleasure had attracted her to go find out why her aunt was crying. During seminars the pastor was allowed to go into people’s hotel rooms and bless them. He had indeed blessed three married women with a seed of the womb. Young brides would attend special prayer programs that the pastor would penetrate them to leave a blessing for the union to work. All this time Margret was clueless of what was happening behind her back.
Pastor Victor was missing for four days now without a trace. Margret was worried and so were the church members. They had assumed that he had gone to the mountains for prayer but he always communicated. There was an official report of a missing person and the search begun. Well, it bore no fruits, and after a month business continued as usual. Drama started unfolding, all the concubines he was funding started attacking his wife demanding for money to raise their children. She was shocked after finding six women camping at her gate with children who looked like her daughter. Maybe it was a mere coincidence and she chased them away for trying to take advantage of her. Prayer and fasting started as she rebuked the evil spirits for trying to destroy her family. As a proverbs 31 woman, she knew she would conquer the battle with the help of her heavily pregnant househelp. Rumours had spread faster than pastor Victor was spreading legs that he was a promiscuous man having sired other kids.
Mercy of Christ church was missing their pastor dearly and on this day the congregation was more powered to pray for their pastor’s safety. Members gave testimonies of the Lord’s goodness and how they prayed hard for him. A young beautiful lady, smartly dressed held the microphone and broke into a praise song to welcome her testimony. She confessed of having an affair with pastor Victor but was interrupted by the congregation rebuking her, terming her as a devil. Just before she was dragged out, she confessed of being Hiv positive. All hell broke loose as women in the church fainted one by one. Right on time, the police came in with both good and bad news. The good news was that they had found the beloved pastor, the bad was that he was dead having committed suicide and left a note. There was total confusion as the police inspector revealed that the note contained church members he had slept with. Reason behind his suicide is he found out that he had AIDS . What shocked everyone was the church elder who fainted and died instantly. It was discovered that they had a homosexual relationship affair for over thirty years. They had gotten married to masquerade their relationship. Mercy of Christ was needed at this time more than ever, but not even Jesus could save them.
