it is heartbreaking to realize that belonging to a larger family doesnot pay. Immediately after the traged accident in the North West Zambia Annual Conference on the 17th September 2012, the Prelate off the 17th Episcopal District the Rt Rev Wilfred J Messiah made a passionate appeal for assistance in his latter dated September 20th 2012 towards the bereaved families. Unfortunately none of you including Bishops of the Church have responded and contributed anything to these families who are now wallowing in abject poverty and their children have stopped going to school. todate these families have only received an equivalent of U$85 Per family possibly raised through local resources. WHAT A FAMMILY

Hello & Good Evening Sister Ora! Just wanted to inform you, your husband, and All others that my wife, Bessie M. Hines, has been completely discharged from REHABILATATION, and is now back home with the family. Her "WALKING" has improved and progressed tremendously with the assistance of THEARPISTS'. Even though at home she will continue to receive "IN-HOME THEARPY" until she is able to walk on her own without assistance. Sister Ora, please allow me the privilege to express deep personal Special Thanks and Appreciation to you for your prayers and concerns during our season of health challenges. We are a family that can attest and witness to the fact of God can and will do, only IF we will TRUST Him for His WORD! Behind a frowning providence, HE hides a smiling face! I am indeed grateful and thankful to ALL the Prayer Warriors across the Connectional Church of African Methodism who stood in the gap sending UP PETITIONS for healing and restoration of my spouse, Bessie M. Hines. May He continue to BLESS ALL, real real good! I shall keep you informed on her future progress. Please convey my best regards to your husband, Rev.Dr. W. W.! Humbly Thankful, Rev. Dr. L.

Mrs. Easley, gratitude is extended on behalf of my entire family for the out-pouring of love and support that I received from my brothers and sisters of the AME Church. My brother’s passing was a real “punch in the gut” for me and my entire family. He was a big, strong, lover of life and just seemed invincible to all of us. We know that no one is invincible yet coming to terms with this fact by the loss of a loved one does not make it any easier. I am the priest of my family, but I would not have been able to minister to my family without the love I received from the brethren. I stand forever indebted to each and everyone. God forbid if I should forget to give God thanks for your ministry. Blessings, Rev. Edward Bailey

The African Methodist Episcopal Church once again proved itself to be a church with a ministry built around social concerns as originally founded. We have been inundated with messages of support form near and far, thanks to your publication and especially that of The AME Church Clergy Family Information Center. It is a comforting thought that there are those who are concerned about the welfare and well being of their fellow sojouners; ranging from Bishops to the lay members serving in local charges. Our spirits were lifted and we were encouraged, being able to face the challenge of saying farewell to a loved one. We are one - we are family Beverley Jacobs and family
