Lack of self-control can only be known when exposed to the vice you fight. Some say I can’t womanise when they live in a seminary; people even promise to be humble if they become rich, a phrase of the poor. Pastor fish never knew the temptations of the world could be very distracting and if one is not careful might go astray and never come back. Follow ups are always done in groups starting from two persons. And they follow people up not otherwise. In the case of pastor fish sister Angela as popularly called now was the one that did the follow up. She had come for a visit in pastor’s house. It was a surprise to pastor fish and he felt the word he shared on the day of evangelism was the connection between himself and Sister Angela. As for her also she came unannounced.
It was a Saturday morning and the weather was cloudy. It was evident rain wasn’t farfetched. A knock on pastor’s door called his attention. He stood up from his laziness and wore a short as he opened the door. He was surprised to see Sister Angela at the front door with tears in her eyes. He ushered her in and told her to sit down. She wiped her tears and settled down to narrate her story. She started from the genesis of how she started the profession of prostitution. What led her into it and how life has been so cruel to her. She continued with analysis of how many people she has slept with and how she hasn’t been infected at any time. The story went on and on with intervals of tears. Pastor fish was moved beyond borders and the next statement was the beginning of the voyage. We are going back there right now to go pack your things. You are moving out of that brothel said pastor fish.
In less than ten minutes after they got there she had moved her bags out of the brothel to go get a new life in Christ. Pastor has won a soul. A great soul this time around. That was a feat every believer wants to achieve and solemnly he brought her into his house and the rain started. He took her things inside his room in this one bedroom apartment as if she was moving in with him but to pastor fish he wants to call the sisters in church to house Sister Angela.
The first call went to sister grace; she declined with the fact that her younger brother just came into town and he will be around for a while. Sister Emem was preparing for her wedding thus her fiancée was the excuse. Sister joy said she travelled that morning while sister precious said her uncles daughters friend that came to town is with her. Thus pending the time pastor fish will get somewhere for her to stay; she had to put up at pastor’s apartment.
The downpour was heavy with thunderstorms. The day became night with the cloud covering the city. The room suddenly became cold. She stepped into the kitchen and made a delicacy and for the first time the man of God felt the essence of a woman in the house. Meal after meal the days went and the house started having a feminine touch. He wasn’t interested in those sisters coming to take her away again. They were both sharing the apartment. She slept on the bad and pastor fish slept on the mattress on the floor. Prayers were like the air they breathe until that night they left the window open. Rain had entered through the window that was left open. The mattress on the floor has been soaked, so they had to share the bed.
Sister Angela moved inside as pastor fish covered up from behind. The warmth was immediately felt as he moved closer. She gripped him every time there was thunderstorm like a baby running to her dad for help. The clinging was friendly at first but as the night got colder; something started moving inside pastor fish’s body. He started responding to stimulus. The hardship becoming real and Sister Angela being a professional in the trade knew where to ignite the fire. She slipped her hand inside his trouser and before he could say anything………….. She has got her mouth on it. The man of God was about to explode and the activities that followed seemed heavenly to him. That was the moment pastor fish started backsliding. He missed service and got late to church many times. The church committee of spirituality called a meeting and invited pastor fish. His response was a testimony in church on Sunday and he started with PRAISE THE LORD………..
