Rally Reunites Estranged Family
One of the primary goals of “Peace Starts With Me” was to encourage everyone to come together and create a unified world in spite of our differences. In accordance with this spirit of “Peace Starts With Me,” one family was inspired to unite in the testimony below.
Shermaine, with the Christian Times, attended the July 8, 2017 American Clergy Leadership Conference (ACLC) Clergy Breakfast at the Manhattan Center with her husband, George. George had been estranged from his brother for some years. During the breakfast, George was very moved by the theme of creating harmonious families. After the breakfast he spoke with Mrs. Beryl Green, and felt moved by the Holy Spirit to reach out to his brother, whom he had not seen for a couple of years.
When he telephoned his brother, the brother went to see George right away. George also met his brother’s ten-year-old son, whom he had not seen since he was 4 years old. The brothers didn’t part until 10:00 p.m. that evening. George’s brother plans to go visit George and Shermaine in their new home in Chesapeake, Virginia in the near future.
George also told his nephew, Dashuan, that he could call him anytime if he needed help. Several days later the nephew called at 2:00 a.m. He didn’t need anything, but wanted to see if his uncle would really answer the phone at an awkward hour. George did answer the phone, and is rebuilding trust and healthy relationships within his family.
