Gunmen rob Pastor, wife in church
Three brazen bandits last evening robbed a Howes Street Pastor and his wife, minutes after the couple had concluded their Wednesday evening service.
The invaders relieved Pastor Kenrick Corbin and his wife of several pieces of gold jewellery.
Corbin, who is the pastor at Faith Miracle Ministries, told Kaieteur News that three men with guns came into the church. He was still standing on the pulpit with his wife not too far away. “They came into the church pointed the gun to my head…another pointed to my chest” Corbin said.
The pastor said he didn’t think twice to hand over his belongings to the three bandits. “I willingly took off my chain, and rings and they took three of my wife’s rings”.
Corbin described the act as cowardly and asked that God shows mercy on the young men who could enter a church and rob a pastor. He said that this is just a backlash of a systematic problem which is being faced by society.
“There’s too much unemployment, no moral ethics and poverty….so these things will happen if they are not addressed,” said Corbin. He said that he is thankful to be alive and that he had already forgiven the men who robbed them.
“I forgive them….they are cowards. Real men go and look for work…That’s a cowardly act; I trust that they find grace in the eyes of God. They had no fear of God because I was on the pulpit”.
