was to run it.
This took place over a year ago however the events that took place still
effects how many people feel and react to the events that are taking place now.
church has been split for some time and there are those that still don’t truly know the
things that took place.
My family and I however were caught in the middle of all the
things that happened, we were the first offended as well as the leaders of trying to replace
I will tell the things that took place as they had happened and how they had
affected my self and my family.
As a person can expect something this complex will not
