I am so happy that the will of God has prevailed, we prayed for the leading of the Holy Spirit and surely he led Gods people to the truth. The difference was so big so no one would remain with a doubt as to what He willed.
Now we need to pray for unity because divided we fall. Let’s come together and be of one accord so that we may receive the latter rain.
Praise be to God.
