2020 Ministry Highlights


"I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss. Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease."  

Lamentations 3:20-23

2020 was a year of unspeakable suffering from a global pandemic, mixed with gratitude for God's sustaining power. Despite the challenges, many doors were opened for us to minister in powerful ways this year. I sent scriptures daily to Congressional members and prayed with many. We hosted a 2020 National Prayer Breakfast Leadership Seminar with over 300 world leaders seeking to build bridges across every barrier. We co-hosted a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Facebook Live dialogue with top faith leaders on ministering during COVID, and a "Strengthening Your Faith" hour with gospel legend Kirk Franklin. 


We convened four of the six Masters Series for Distinguished Leaders program sessions virtually with powerful results. The Masters Series for Distinguished Clergy program equipped nearly 30 pastors from across the nation to voice their moral convictions before decision makers. 


We collaborated with diverse faith groups like the Circle of Protection on stimulus relief for low-income people. We partnered with Sojourners on a nine-state voter protection campaign, Turnout Sunday/Lawyers & Collars, to protect vulnerable voters. For the 2020 Census, we provided African American faith groups with a "Complete Count" Toolkit and a 3-minute video with trusted faith voices. On a personal note, I am delighted by every moment of virtual connection with my wonderful grandchildren. 


Our ministry success this year was only possible through the prayers and financial contributions of faithful supporters like you. For a year-end gift of $50.00 or more, we will send you, postage paid, a beautifully designed desktop calendar featuring special prayers based on scriptures I send daily to congressional leaders. We pray God's unlimited blessings on your life and family, now, and in the coming New Year!


Be blessed and Stay Safe!
