Have you ever wondered what it's like to live in the same city as your parents, see them at the Food Lion and they walk right past you?
No Easter dinners, Christmas presents or family vacations together.
Helen knows this feeling too well.
For years she has been estranged from her parents. Not by choice. This was their decision. She longs to speak to them,touch them or better yet, hug them. But this is against their beliefs.
Helen was raised a devout Jehovah Witness. In her home they did not believe in holidays or birthdays, were against military service and blood transfusions and limited their interaction with non Witnesses.
When Helen became an adult she decided that being a Jehovah Witness was not for her. She converted to Christ. She accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour. her parents have not talked to her in over 20 years.
Members who leave are considered disassociated and are also shunned.
Listen as Nicole Cleveland interviews Helen about her courageous faith and her determination to keep going with or without her parents.
Listen as I chat with Pastor Vicki Coward of Vicki Coward Ministries ( Agape Intl Ministries ) based in Richmond, Virginia and her daughter Jazmine about Girl Talk, which takes place every 4th Friday of the month.
