For Huna and his family, attending church was little more than a ritual. They attended inconsistently for seven years, but they did not allow the words they heard to penetrate beyond their ears and influence their actions. Huna as much more devoted to gambling; he hungered for quick riches. This addiction caused him to neglect his family and sometimes even forget to eat. His four children followed his example by living a life contrary to the principles taught at church. Huna’s only son refused to obey to him and chose friends who were a bad influence. The family spent much of their time looking at phone and television screens. Relationships were strained, and there was no peace in their home. The disharmony saddened Huna’s wife, but she was reluctant to approach her pastor for help. She feared her family would be disgraced by the admission. She hoped for unity and relief from the discord, but she didn’t know whom she could trust for help. But one day, GFA pastor Sambo unexpectedly offered the family the help they needed.
