Wendy Alec tells her side of the story

WendyNearly a week after her husband stepped down from his role as one of the co-founders of GodTv, Wendy Alec has finally spoken out. According to an article published on the Plymouth Herald which was published 4 hours ago, Wendy has confirmed that her husband Rory Alec left her for another woman and no longer wants to stay married nor remain in ministry.

In a statement broadcasted on GodTv, Wendy spoke of how her marriage started to fall apart early 2014. She said sometime in March her husband started behaving in a strange manner and she felt in her heart something was up. She said by August 2014 Rory’s affair with a lady based in Austria had come to light. Unfortunately Rory and Wendy are no longer a couple as the statement read out suggests he refused counseling and has now moved out of his marital home.

According to Wendy, Rory is now living in a farm owned by his girlfriend’s father in South Africa (yes the Austrian lady with whom he cheated with). To make matters worse, this woman has been rather persistent and claims God told her that Rory is her husband…huh? come again, sorry lady but he cannot be your husband if he already has a wife as that would make it totally unbiblical. This is one thing that i would never understand, why some woman and some men target married people. Yes i understand nobody is perfect and we are still living on planet earth and hence prone to sin but for someone to target somebody who is already attached is bang out of order.

I feel sorry for this couple and their lovely children Samantha and Christian. I just pray God restores everybody concerned. Lets not forget, underneath it all, they are still people in need of the Grace and forgiveness of Yahweh.

Happy 57th birthday to Michael W Smith

SmithHappy 57th birthday to our modern day Psalmist Micheal W Smith who turned 57 years old yesterday 7th October. Looking at his most recent picture one would not believe he is beyond his forties…more like he is just entering his forties. Michael is well known for his beautiful worship music which is a staple for many churches worldwide. I can testify that his music ushered me into the kingdom of God and helped me work out a lot of issues when i was a brand new believer way way back in 2006.

It is good to see somebody growing older gracefully (with the Grace of God of course). It is even better to see somebody ploughing away with the work of God and that is exactly what Michael is doing. Michael recently released his brand new album called Sovereign. This album is full of beautiful songs which i cannot imagine anybody listening to without lifting their hands up in praise and worship unto the Lord.

As well as being a full time musician Michael W smith is also married and has been married for 31 years (take note Hollywood celebs). Michael is also a father of 5 who lends his time to good causes. Wow how does he find the time….must be the Grace of God so here here to many many more happy birthdays Amen.

Ja Rule shares his testimony on giving his life to Christ…

Wow it only seems like yesterday when Ja Rule released his first album Venni Vetti Vecci. Music is such a powerful tool in how it shapes our lives because every song brings back memories of friendship,relationships and even the weather…yes yes many moons ago before mamab got saved she occasionally went clubbing with friends and danced along to “holla holla”. As interesting as it all were, it is also nice to fast forward and see how God can change people’s lives into something more beautiful beautiful (like the song by Francesca Batistelli). I saw this clip the other day of Ja Rule talking about how he gave his life to Jesus during the promotional tour of the hit movie I’m in Love With a Church Girl where he plays the role of Miles Montego a high flying drug dealer who falls in love with a lovely church girl. The movie concludes with Miles becoming the pastor of a church almost like the opposite of life imitating art.

Ja Rule whose real name is Jeffery Atkins is has been married for over a decade and has 3 children with his wife Aisha Murray

Ja Rule is no stranger to getting in trouble with the law and some of his past legal issues include fire arm possession, assault and being caught with marrijuana. Despite his run in with the law it seems Ja Rule has surrendered all to the only one who matters…Jesus Christ.

 

Fertility issues?….then be inspired by Forever Jones!

 

I often hear Christians saying,’God is good’ but sometimes i think we never take a moment to just ponder on that ‘goodness’. Sometimes when i do take a step back and just reflect on His goodness i am often filled with gratitude because i could never find the right word to describe just how good and wonderful the Living God truly is.

As you all know by know i love Gospel music and for the past few months my little princesses and i have been listing to and belting out Forever Jones Hallelujah song. The band forever Jones consists of mum and dad Dewitt and Kim Jones plus their 5 miracle children . Looking at this beautiful family you would not know of the trials their mother and father went though to have them.

Mr and Mrs Jones have been married for 34 years however the beginning of their marriage was marred with fertility issues. The couple were unable to conceive due to the effects of pelvic inflammatory disease which came about when Mrs Jones had toxic shock syndrome. Doctors told the couple they would never be able to have children but the couple decided to trust in God instead. The couple stood on the word of God and “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him” (Psalm 127:3) became their prescription. After years of having no baby they went on to have 5 babies plus 2 grand babies.

Their story gives me goose pimples and i hope whoever reads this would feel encouraged.
