Ron Carpenter, pastor of Redemption World Outreach Center (RWOC) in Greenville, S.C., told his congregation on Sunday that he would be attempting, with the help of Bishop T.D. Jakes, to reconcile his marriage with his wife, Hope Carpenter, less than four months after revealing that she had committed adultery multiple times over the past 10 years and was voluntarily seeking psychiatric help.

“I ask for your prayers today as Hope and I begin reconciling our marriage. We know this will be a journey. Much love to each of (you),” read a notice on both Pastor Carpenter’s and RWOC’s Twitter accounts Sunday that was attributed to “Ron C.”

A more detailed message on Facebook, also attributed to “Ron C” read: “I know many of you are waiting for updates. Thank you for your patience… Thank you for giving Hope her privacy as she needed intense ministry as well as a place and a time to heal.

“Today we turn our attention to reconciling our marriage. We believe that God has a miracle for us. I ask you to pray as we realize we have not chosen the easy route. Our desire is that somehow God receive glory out of our most difficult times…thank you all and we love you dearly.”
