meeting was on Monday 3 February 2003.
Through the weeks we have seen the Lord answering prayers and as always, when we
pray, we know that the Lord is mindful of us!
Lord has worked in the life of Sis G's grandson, Brian, by allowing a situation
to be delayed. We are believing that the Lord is working in his favor.
No matter the situation, God knows what we need, when we need it!
From Sis H...
"Just wanted to quickly let you know that our prayer
has been answered and Lisa's apartment in Omaha has
been rented. We are now out of the lease and the
financial obligation. Praise God!"
The G family was
involved in a car accident on their way
to church. The
Lord protected them from a situation
that could have ended
into a tragedy.
After the accident
the Lord sent a Christian lady who held
their hand and prayed
for them. They are still experiencing
physical problems but
are alive to tell their story!
From Sis M.
Last summer, I asked our home
church in Belleville, IL to pray for my children.
I felt in my spirit that they
would be faced with new challenges this year at their public school and would
need the Holy Ghost to guide and direct them.
Our church as a whole had been
praying specifically for youth and
children to receive the Holy
Ghost. Ben (7) and Elaina (5) both repented
of their sins and received the
baptism of the Holy Ghost, August 2, 2002, during the UPCI Black Evangelism
Conference in Atlanta, Georgia!
A special children’s
evangelistic service was held (w/ Bro. Bob Morgan). Many
children felt the presence of
God in a deep and personal way. One young lady, the daughter of Home Missionary
Lorenzo Turner prayed Elaina through to the Holy Ghost and Brother Morgan’s
wife, Sis. Tracy prayed with Benjamin. Sister Charlene Collins, a member of the
church in Florida (pastored by Bro. Davy),
also prayed with the children
and witnessed Ben and Elaina speaking in tongues. Praise God! Both children
desired to be and were baptized in the Name of Jesus later that month.
school year started, right away Benjamin began having
difficulty with his school work and was exhibiting poor
behavior in class. This was very out of character for him and
we found out that he was keeping close company with another
student from a rough background. This child had already been
suspended once in the first grade and was constantly in
trouble. We disciplined
“old fashioned” way – smile!), took away privileges, tried to
explain, and discussed why this behavior was unacceptable.
We told Ben
that he needed to break all ties with this child and make
choices. We prayed for him and asked God to help him, and I
the ladies of
DOZ to pray for him. Changes began to occur. His grades
began to improve, and we stopped receiving notes from his
teacher about his behavior. We were glad, but didn’t think
anymore about it.
we received a letter explaining that Ben was chosen to receive
a Youth Harmony award by his teacher. Elaina also was chosen
by her teacher
to receive a
similar award. I went to his school assembly, like any proud
parent, expecting him to get a simple certificate like the
others. I was shocked to find out that out of sixteen
nominees at his school, he was chosen to represent the entire
elementary school at a district wide ceremony!
Here is what
his teacher wrote about him:
Benjamin is an example of what the Youth Harmony award is all
about. He is kind and compassionate, showing maturity and
friendship to a fellow classmate.
This classmate was having behavior problems and trouble at
school. Ben learned to make good choices, and he would not
hesitate in telling his friend not to participate in something
wrong, yet he was loyal and compassionate toward this friend.
When others turned their backs and shunned this classmate,
Benjamin would explain to him and demonstrate the right way to
He was a wonderful example for his friend and helped create
harmony in our classroom. He demonstrated peace-making skills
and kindness. He is a role model for his classmates.
an engraved medal. He is not a perfect kid,
but he has
become a prayerful one.
ladies of DOZ for being our partners!
We serve a
mighty and awesome God!
We're so thankful for the goodness of the Lord!
Keep on praying and know that the Lord is
mindful of each and every prayer ever prayed!!
Until next time...
Have a good and godly
