This morning our day got a strange start.
Before my wife and I were out of bed, I received a call from a man and his mother who, for about 5 years, we struggled to help.
Both of them are not 'normal'. He is an adult of 49 years old, and lives with his mom. He is not of normal intelligence, though functional, but dillusional, as is she. He has a tendency of creating things in his mind and telling her, and she believes each and every word he says, even when her own eyes say otherwise. We have helped her through two bouts of cancer, helped them find places to live, even allowing them to stay in the church parsonage, (which their dogs destroyed). At the end, when we lost our building, they had to leave, as well, and have blamed us for it ever since.
So, some time back, they came to the church meeting early to tell me how my wife had gone to a pastor in another town, and to the next town's auto parts store, and had told them all kinds of crazy things about them. Oh, she went and lied and told horrible things about them. And they are accusing her of this right in front of her. Well, there wasn't much I could do with the auto place, but they had the number of the pastor, so we called him right then and spoke to him in front of them on speaker, and he repudiated the whole thing, said he not only didn't know my wife or I, but that he had no idea who they were, either. So, things kind of died down, and they began to say, that, well it wasn't my wife, but someone that MIGHT have been her, etc etc. So they stayed for service and things seemed okay.
Now, after about two months of not seeing them, they called to tell me that my wife went to a LAWYER in Susanville and told him horribe things about them, and that she has been sending the local AOG pastor's wife to say horrible things about them, too. When I tried to get more details, they told me to shut up and listen so I hung up on them, and tried to get the info by text but got no response.
So, this morning we are going to go see the lawyer, and talk to him about it-apparently its a public defender, who they called the free lawyer, and that he had suggested they take her to court. So now we must go to it.
So, a little prayer would be good right now, ust for our wisdom and thier calm. I will update. Thanks, y'all.
