A South African pastor has remarried his wife after two years of separation. Pastor Abi Ranyane shared beautiful pictures of the simple remarriage ceremony online and a brief explanation of what led to their divorce two years ago.
According to the pastor, he initially blamed his wife for the divorce and it was only after seeking God’s guidance that he realized it was actually his fault. Pastor Abi went on to say that he was too focussed on ministry that he neglected his wife all the while putting pressure on her to be the perfect pastor’s wife.
“All that mattered was me me me and my calling. I created a very angry wife and actually misrepresented God and ministry to my wife (just like Moses misrepresented God to the Israelites) she started resenting both God and the church,” the man of God wrote in a Facebook post.
With this realization, he started pursuing his ex-wife who turned him down for a period of two months before she caved in. The pastor credits prayer, fasting and help of his spiritual father finally winning his ex-wife over.
The couple has two children who were present during the renewal of vows and remarriage ceremony.
