A lady has narrated what a pastor told her family in church four days after they buried their father.
The lady identified as @femmehuman on Twitter, said her father, Samuel Nwabunwanne Ogbogu, died in August and that the family had gone for his outing in church four days after his burial.
According to her, the pastor told the family that the man promised to fix two windows in the church while he was alive, and asked the children to endeavor to carry out the “proposed project”.
She blasted the pastor for being insensitive, saying the family is still trying to recover from the huge burial expenses.
The Twitter user disclosed that she bursted into laughter at the church altar when the pastor made the comment.
She further said the pastor has not visited the family since they buried their father, despite that her mother is a deaconess in the church.
The lady added that those who accompanied the family to the outing were also shocked by the pastor’s statement.
“We buried my dad on Thursday and went for his outing service yesterday, after the pastor finished praying for us at the altar he told us that our late dad promised to fix 2 windows for the church and since he’s dead now we should endeavor to finish his ‘proposed project,’” she said.
“Coming barely 4days after laying him to rest and the family still trying to recover from burial expenses.
“This is a church or less than 40 congregation where everybody knows everybody by face and name and my mom is a Deaconess. Dad died 29th of August and I came back on the 2nd of September, since that 2nd till the 30th the pastor came for burial mass, I’ve not seen him drop by to check up on a top church member/close family friend in the person of my mom buh he remembered to tell us the children of the deceased still in mourning to complete a Church window(s) promised by the deceased.
“Make of this anything you want buh don’t bring your dumb self here to tell me how if it’s a native doctor or the embassy that asks that of me how I would do that without as much as an argument.
“Churches in Nigeria makes me sick. Don’t guess much on my reaction immediately he said that- I burst laugh in front of the altar and being that the church was quiet, everyone heard lol.
“The disgust on the faces of the people that accompanied my family to the outing service by what the pastor said is another story.”
