“I don’t know which words to use to describe our late mother. And as you can see, all the guys in this church are on fire for Christ. So for us to say maybe our mother did not train him well is another story.

The leadership of the church is going to meet and see how best we can help him since the mother was a founder of the church. We cannot leave him like that,”
