Letter To God: Lord, Da Pastor J Church or Pastor W

Dear Father:

Hmm, this coming Sunday I wonder if I should go for first service to Pastor J church den I do second service at Pastor W church. At least for the past 12 years only my church I have been going to. I wonder if I should stop by Pastor W church first since it na far from my area. But I like Pastor J owner preaching too. So, right now I am confused.

My son, what is it da you want to hear da na in your church?

No, Father, I heard da Pastor J and Pastor W can fini de sermon and turned de pulpits outside down and I really want to see it and hear it with my ownsef ears.

I heard Pastor J church was parked last week Sunday after Pastor W went on him pulpit to call Pastor J all kinds of names including “killer and black mailer”. Bor in 2017 they were buddy, buddy ooh.

But da Pastor W one you heard? What about Pastor J who called Pastor W rogue?

Tell me something Father! Then I really need to go visit Pastor J Church this coming Sunday because they say since Pastor W preached da him powerful message Pastor J been putting him sermon together. They say him sermon will spill the beans.

Hmmm, don’t be like de orlor pepo dem who wen to Pastor J Church and they got disappointed ooh. They say de man church was parked-Ay na for fun ayaka.

But Father, me I know Pastor J, he will respond, de man wan plenty pepo to come to him church so he will respond.

And de way I see Pastor W, him will not draw back. Him waiting for Pastor J to jus say phew and you will see. How Uncle Sam will catch Pastor J and all will be in da sermon.
