Life without Jesus is futile

Rory Alec got engaged to Carola in May 2016 and they were married on September 17th, 2017. Announcing his marriage to family and friends at the time Rory Alec acknowledged that many people had been disappointed by the failure of his first marriage of 27 years and how he had given up everything to start again.
“I am a better man, a better father and moving in a greater peace and joy than I could have ever imagined. The reasons for my former marriage breakdown remain between my ex-wife, our creator and myself. He alone will judge us. I thank God for His unmerited grace and forgiveness and I will only speak well of her or I will not speak at all.
“I remain resolute in my faith and deep conviction, humbled by my humanity and thankful for His mercy and grace. I never for one second ‘fell away’. Together, Carola and I press on before the Lord, our love for Him ever growing.”
Rory Alec concluded his marriage announcement by thanking all GOD TV partners for their support of the ministry he co-founded. “Thank you for staying with the new leadership and team… I pray for their blessing every day.”
