The Midwest Annual Conference
Home of the hardest working Pastors in African Methodism!
can not adequately express the overwhelming outpouring of love shown toward
me and my family at my 11th Anniversary Celebration! Greater New Bethel was
packed from front to back!
I want to express my thanks to the Anniversary Committee, the host pastor
(Rev. Edward Walzer, Jr.), district churches, musicians, choirs, praise
dancers, steppers, members, visitors and friends of the Midwest South
District. To coin a saying from our Episcopate, Bishop T. Larry Kirkland,
"The greatest sin of the human heart is the sin of ingratitude!"
Again, thank you very much for making my 11th Anniversary Celebration a
day that will long be remembered!

God Bless Always & In All Ways,
Rev. Rachel Williams-Glenn, Pastor
My son, Mitch, has a thriving business, Blue Beetle (termites, other
pests, etc.,) and Red Beetle (fire extinguishers). The business has
grown to the point of not having enough techs to handle the demand. He
has asked me to recruit reliable young men looking for a job, which includes
$15 an hour plus a company car to drive back and forth to work. No
prior experience necessary.
The company is located at the corner of 63rd and Main--big blue house.

From One Of Our Readers In Cyberspace!
Thank you for being so diligent in keeping the Fifth Episcopal
District so informed. It means so much to be able to obtain inspiring,
informational and accurate data about our Zion at just the click of the
mouse. May God continue bless you and your entire staff for your efforts.
Thank you Celia for your words of encouragement! When I started building
Websites over twelve years ago, there were many people who could not see the
importance of having an Online presence. I learned how to build and maintain
Websites in order to reach beyone the walls of the local church into the
global community. It hasn't been easy and many times I have considered
giving up. I want you to know that people like you give me a reason to
continue. Once again, thank you Celia!

Rebuilding The Wall Brick By Brick
To Our Christian Friends:
We, the members of Mariah Walker AME Church are pleading for your prayers
and support as we are preparing to rebuild the wall of our church. As you
may know, we have not been able to worship at Mariah Walker due to this
damage. Mariah Walker has been our home for over 50 years and we want it to
be open another 50 years. Our goal is to raise $10,000.00 by the end of June
2014 with God’s help. We are workers together with him.
We would be grateful for any donations as we prepare to return home with
your help. Our situation should not change our praise and our praise can
certainly change our situation.
