I AM praying sis...Just the first time I've ever prayed for a computer issue for someone.
That was funny.

I do have regular calls from foreign people saying there is an issue with my computer, and If I would go online they will straighten it up on their end. Do I do that? No.

On the other hand, the church that I have belonged to since the 90's has had one issue after the other and members are leaving to attend other churches. I will give my ( Pastor ) the credit for causing numerous problems because he has become overly controlling and that is all the details I will go into. We need everyone to pray that God will work in this situation.
I work at a computer store as a tech, and because we sell parts (a rarity around here) many of the other repair stores around town come to us when they need something immediately. One of them runs nothing but Linux on their computers. They got one of those scam calls, telling them their Windows PC was infected. They told him that they don't run Windows, so he asked them if they had a PC. Of course, they said yes, so he told them that they DID have Windows.

It's good at least that you know not to allow someone onto your computer. I can't tell you the number of times we've had people come into our store, who had not only allowed someone on to their computer, but had actually paid them money.

Thank you for the information Jito, I am almost computer illiterate and being that there are so many scammers, no more than I know, they could cause me to give them access to use my info to do whatever they so choose to do. Better to steer clear of phone calls. I even got a call from " IRS " instructing me to send 3800. ASAP or I would be picked up and taken to Washing to face charges. I got off and called my local Sheriffs office and reported the call.

Something else to look out for is sometimes you will get scam emails from email addresses that you recognize.

I had a boss that got one from a friend's email and she claimed to be in London and her purse and laptop was stolen and she needed them to wire her 💰. She said she was in a wifi cafe using another person's computer.

Well he called the friend and of course she wasn't in London and DIDNT send the email.

Upon closer examination of emails like that you can see grammar and spelling is usually off and some things are spelled the way Europeans spell them which tells you that the writer isn't American.

One scam artist actually TEXTED me at 11pm one night and called me by name.

I reverse traced the number and found out it originated in Jamaica so I responded in German using Google Translate and pretended that I lived in Germany just to mess with them hehe. Highly entertaining.

A couple of months ago after Sunday night service Bro. __________ announced out of nowhere that we were not going to vote on the young man and no one knew this was coming, most were shocked to say the least, and the young man and his wife left and the church has split. The story is long and things such as this has been happening over the years, and continues to grow worse. The pastors wife handles the finances, and some of the books are closed to the church, we have a business meeting once a year and I will say no more. Thank you for praying.
I will be praying for your church situation. It is not unique sadly. The important thing is to remember that although people will fail us because they are human God never will.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."
