Strong And Trusting

Tuesday night show was a great show. We had Ethel back, but this time she brought her very good friend pinkcameliaEsther Banks. Esther is the wife of one of the IRP6 inmates, and she is a remarkable lady. We had the chance to ask her many questions, as she was very concise on her answers. She didn’t splurge with words, but she transmitted such self-assurance, such personal peace. She talked about her husband and her situation, what she is doing with her life and her family while they are waiting for her husband’s name to be cleared. Although you could hear the pain in her voice, the firmness in her voice spoke of fortitude faith and assurance. She talked with faith and hope for the future, there was not a doubt in her mind that he will get released before term, that soon they will be reunited and they will be able to get on with their lives. She talked about being alone, and having to deal with her family life, plus supporting the distressful situation they are facing. She didn’t talk about being alone though. All her decisions, all her everyday life situations are talked over with her husband, as they are keeping the family together, not matter what.  He has been wrongfully condemned, and he is in prison, waiting for his name to be cleared out, but in the mean time she is not just waiting, she is working on their future, being a role model to her daughter and a good loving wife and friend.

She has time to work in the IRP6 case, meet with the rest of the wives, visit and support her husband, support and run her household, while going full time to school. She trusts in herself and her husband, but most of all in God. I think that the key to her positive attitude resides in the knowledge that everything will be ok, that while she is busy working on her future, her friends, and God Himself are doing the work so everything clears out. She is a trusting, hardworking woman; she is somebody to look up to. We asked her how she dealt with her everyday life and with her husband’s absence, and her answer was concise. She keeps busy, positive and trusting her believes. She is strong and steady, loyal and very proud of her family. She is the wife that every man in trouble owe to have.

Next week we will have one more testimony from this case. Tasha Harper, Demetrius Harper’s wife will join us to tell us about her tribulations regarding her children, as they grow up without a father at home, being the only parent to give them direct support.
