The Lord abundantly blessed us in our 2019 Fall Revival at the DuPont Park Church in Washington, DC with 53 baptisms this past Saturday, October 19! The good news is there are additional baptisms forthcoming! Praise the Lord! Please remember the recently baptized persons, along with the prospective baptismal candidates in your continued prayers.
This coming Saturday, October 26, at 11:00 a.m. in Huntsville, AL at the Oakwood University Church, 5500 Adventist Blvd., NW, Huntsville, AL, we will have a special Breath of Life “Green Plate Day!” On this special day, we will promote health and the benefits of plant based living! Yours truly, Dr. Carlton P. Byrd, will share his preaching ministry, the Oakwood University Aeolians will share their music ministry, and our special guest will be Kimberly Elise, award winning actress (Tyler Perry’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman) and vegan advocate, who will share her journey on the blessings of a plant based diet. Also, vegan food samples will be provided to all in attendance by Celebrity Chef, Mrs. Cynthia Chea Pean, immediately following the Divine Worship Experience.
