Jamaica News: Following reports that a pastor who preaches at a certain church in the parish of St James, has run away with the wife of one of his deacon, church members attending that particular church, were left stranded for the third consecutive week, with no one to administer to them during worship hours.
Our news team learnt that during the last week of November, the entire congregation at that particular church, were left astonished when they turned up for worship on Sunday and saw one of their deacon (elder) in a state of madness.
After making checks, the deranged deacon told the members that, during the wee hours of the night his wife moved out of the matrimonial home and he has now learnt that, she and their pastor were seen driving away from the community before daybreak that morning.
Dozens of telephone calls to the cellphones of both the pastor and the missing woman went unanswered.
“mi never did trust that pastor man“, one church member told our news team, “him always a run some kinda joke wid the church sister them and every night him want turn up a somebody else yard, fi dinner “.
Other church members joined in and told our reporter that their pastor was a single man and he is not really from their community, but he recently came there to live after taking over as head of their church.
We also learnt that since of late, the Deacon’s wife have been spending most of her afternoon at the small church, which is located in the quiet farm community.
During the second week of November, an argument developed between the deacon and the pastor, over his wife spending too much time at the church and members of the church were sent into shock after the church brother was immediately promoted to deacon.
During the following weeks, things went smoothly until the woman (deacon’s wife), started to threaten her husband (the deacon), that she was going to leave him.
He never took her words seriously, until the drama unfolded between Saturday night, November 17, and Sunday, November 18.
Our news team also learnt from a number of church members, that several items owned to the church and an amount of cash, have gone missing, and they are now making an all-out search to locate their missing pastor, and the missing deacon’s wife.
