THE DAY THE WOMEN ENTERED THE ALTAR IN MY CHURCH
On this fateful day we were having a night vigil of the sidesmen and women, which our shepherd was leading the prayers, and due to the area as at that time, we didn’t have gates to even close the doors.
As we prayed, we heard the sound of a gunshot, and opened our eyes to see robbers, who signalled us to lie flat on the floor, and held our shepherd to bring out money and some gadgets in the church.
Then they ordered us again to stand up and all march into the altar.
We were all scared but more scared of the guns. Our shepherd tried to persuade them that it is against the rules of the church but this robbers were very adamant
Then everyone of us, women and men marched into the altar, lying flat and face down.
In my mind as a woman, I couldn’t believe I entered the altar
Then something spectacular happened, lights suddenly beamed from the altar, and shone towards the robbers.
The light circled us as we lied flat on the ground.
Then the robbers shot our shepherd but the bullet never entered
Then they ran away, scared and fidgeting
After they left, we remain there for a while in the altar, scared they might come back.
We couldn’t believe what has just happened.
But surely there is power and mystery in the altar of celestial church and since that day my fear for the altar doubled and increased.
