Additional shouts of admiration and grace to the directors of the Angleton Juneteenth who hosted their 33rd annual festivities.

We further invoke you to continue to be a lighthouse of praise, power and perseverance to future generations so that they, too, will carry on the legacy and integrity of our forefathers in the ability to affect those around them positively. God’s abundant blessings rest upon each of you is our prayer.

Shouts of love and encouragement to Pastor Roland K. Hendricks, First Lady Jean Hendricks, Evan and Charlene Moore, Troy Davidson, Lillie Williams, Rita George, and to all the dynamic members of the Greater Mt. Zion Church family who celebrated their 91st church anniversary and homecoming. High notes of love also to Pastor Joseph Mayes of the Mount Pisgah Baptist Church who rocked the house with an electrifying proclamation of God’s word entitled, “Operation Transformation, from Crazy to Called.” St. Mark 5:1-5, 13-19. We thank God for your continued endeavors to be an anchor of support to our homes and communities. Don’t ever get tired of thanking God for His goodness. Remember your victories. Tell the people around you. Keep bragging on the goodness of God. The more you brag on God’s goodness, the more of God’s goodness you will see. Love and blessings to each of you.
