SJC Brother Announces Abandonment of Faith

BZeal — Zeal for God’s House

Last Sunday after the regular announcements, a brother in Christ arose and announced that because of unsuccessful struggles in his life and lack of repentance he was abandoning the faith.

He gave no signs of his announcement. Even his wife was unaware this was coming.

As a pillar in the church in SJCampos, this brother caused shock among the saints.

We have spent a good part of our first week back in Brazil dealing with this sad development, especially helping the Christians to handle this spiritual setback.

We ask your prayers for this brother and his family, as well as for the church here.

Later, I hope to include some points we’ve worked up for the church to remember in this extremely trying time.
