At the beginning of Vesper’s tonight, Cliff announced the promotion of Emil Castro to House Manager of the Recovery Home. Emil has knowledge and many talents, but most of all, a love for DAP and his brothers. We are so blessed to have him as part of the staff.
The speaker tonight was Phyllis Frazier, the wife of graduate Anthony Frazier. They are both staff members of DAP.
The subject was, “Jesus Stands at the Door( of our heart) and Knocks” (Revelation 3:20). Our reply to Him should be, “Come on in, Lord,” for we desire to put a smile on His face.
As we ‘open the door,’ Jesus will direct our lives, give us favor, and teach us how to trust and obey Him.
Phyllis also shared Matthew 19:21: “Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.” The man was asked to give up his wealth to follow Jesus. He was unwilling to make God the real priority of his life. Using this as an example, Phyllis advised us to let go of pride. Jesus warns us that wealth can make it difficult for us to accept salvation.
In closing, Phyllis sang a medley of songs – “Nothing Between,” “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus,” and “I Surrender All.” Her message and melodious voice 🎶 made us shout 👏🏼💃🏽🕺for joy. What a blessing 🙏🏼.
