(Scroll down for video) A pastor in Kenya, is out of a job after he was caught red-handed with a married woman in a hotel room.
The pastor of a church in the city of Embu, who was caught with the married woman on Sunday, addressed his congregation and asked for forgiveness.
Pastor Anthony Maina of the Kenya Assemblies of God Eastern Gate Church, arrived with his wife Beth, and two children, and said that he did not commit adultery with the woman when they were caught in the hotel room in the city of Karatina, Nyeri County.
“I’m here to tell everyone that I made a mistake, and I have sought God’s forgiveness. The incident saved me because I would have committed more sins,” he said.
The church announced that it had suspended the pastor indefinitely.
“The pastor has committed a crime that goes against the teachings of God, and therefore, he can no longer serve in the church,” a spokesperson for the church said.
Beth said that she had forgiven her husband, saying that they have to come together and move forward as a family.
