Star Tell Me Pastor


Family rams

Dear Pastor,

If I had a daughter, I wouldn't trust her father to be around her because of my bad experiences with my dad, my uncle and cousins. I hate my relatives.

Most of my relatives are family rams or family ewe. My dad, uncle and brother wanted my body. When I was 13 my brother tried to hold me down to have sex with him. He is just like my father. Please pray for me. My body is destroyed by family curse and by abominable behaviour.

I want to have a baby, but I can't get pregnant. My womb is corroded and cursed. I am 21 years old and I want a family of my own. I believe that inside of me is a cemetery. My daddy might have got me pregnant and I didn't realise it because I was young and he was always giving me herbs to flush my system. And it was when I left his house six years ago that I realised what might have happened to me.

Dear ...,

If you have not received therapy, I suggest that you call a family counsellor and make an appointment to see him/her. I understand why you would want to protect your daughter if you had one. However, it is very important for a girl child to have a good relationship with her father. Some of the males in your family abused you but not all men are abusers. So, I beg of you, please try and see a family counsellor as soon as possible.
