Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Disgraced

It is very shameful for the daughter of a pastor to get pregnant especially when the pastor strongly advocates against sexual sin in church and among the youths. in March this year, something crazy perhaps madness or demons took over our pastor's daughter Mitchell and she began to behave so funny. She started to go out to clubs, go out with men and even drink heavilly. His parents tried to advise her but they were not successfull. The whole team of about ten church elders tried to counsell and advise her to wait untill it was marriage but she was very rude and disrespectful to them and at times she would just walk away from them. The daughter went on and two months later it was realised that she was pregnant. Her parents were greatly discouraged and disgraced that for over two months the father never stood on the pulpit to preach.
