Kinnari’s alcoholic and belligerent husband, Mahvandad, had just passed away from liver damage. The couple had no children and no relatives nearby; at 59-years-old, now a widow, Kinnari was alone.
No Love in Their Marriage
GFA pastor Brirar had met with Kinnari and Mahvandad several times the three years before Mahvandad passed away, seeking to bring harmony and peace to their marriage, but the couple ignored Pastor Brirar’s counsel. Little love dwelt in their household, and nothing Pastor Brirar said could change their ways. Nothing he said could change Mahvandad’s alcoholism. Nothing changed, until Mahvandad was gone.
When the pastor heard of Mahvandad’s passing, he and some members of his congregation visited Kinnari. The new widow didn’t expect Pastor Brirar to show up at her home, and she certainly didn’t expect him to offer to lead the funeral service.
