Well there are a couple still left that are disgruntled/bitter but they are in the minority. It is our prayer that they will get turned around and focused on the vision my husband has for the Church.
It took about 10 months to get it turned around. I think it was the hardest year of our lives in the ministry. It's nice to look back on it now and just sigh and give the Lord the glory.
When a Pastor and his family leaves a church they needs to do just that LEAVE. Don't keep coming back, don't stir up strife, cut your ties for at least a year and let the people fall in love with the new Pastor. (Hey, I need to write a book!)
It is wonderful tho when you place it in the Lord's hands and let Him deal with it. Never under estimate the power of the Lord.
