What Are You Doing?
Not feeling good enough? Worthy enough? Smart enough? Are you bored? Too much time on your hands? Or doing to much of nothing?
It's ok. Many of us are doing to much of nothing or not enough of something. If you know what i mean.
Ladies and gents, i strongly advise and encourage you to get out there and volunteer your time in making "a difference" in your community. Wether you live with the richest or the poorest, there is something you can do. I challenge you to make a difference.
What are you doing?
What can you do to make things better around you? What you suggest as your answer will depend upon your level of responsibility. But anything good, is something.
This past Saturday March 6 2010 D.E.V.A Group had their official G.O.D -Girl's & Guys of Destiny launch with our Girl's of Destiny Workshop/Brunch. This event was a great success. We had over 70 girl's. 40 of them were sponsored by friends and business associates (much love)
The majority of these young women reside in low-income housing in the GTA and without these sponsors they would not have been able to make it for one reason or another. Most likely financial reasons. Never the less, these young women have forever left their signatures in our hearts. Gifted, beautiful and talented children of God.
Neola Husbands (Ms.Teen GTA) Shared her deep and amazing testimony
Louise Fox- Manners On The Go (social & table etiquette)
Kelly Gentile - Performed her skit "Inventions By women"
Ibrahim Downey - Keeping it real!
Jaime Carrington & Ruth Lewis - Sexual Warfare( amazing and life changing for us all. 22 out of the 70 young women gave their lives to Christ after her sermon) Jaime you are amazing.
The room was filled with laughter, comfort, warmth, joy as we all felt safe and in no rush to end the evening.

A LOUD shout out to Vee Clarke (D.E.V.A's outreach co-ordinator) for the effort in making this event "special" Thanx BOSS :-)) wink wink lol
Everyday i pray that God will bless me with breathtaking ideas and actions on how to make a difference in this world. I'm not perfect and i have never claimed to be. I only know that i would like for God to use my talents and abilities in ministering to people, women and youth.
I know that i will be faced with many trials and tests in this life time, i mean, afterall the enemy is after those who are "especially chosen" RIGHT? However i would like to know that before i leave this world, i did the very best i could as a mother (first) and then to make this world a better place.
My passion comes from being able to reach out to a soul. Even if it is just one at a time.
My story was made for ME, because it is ME that will make that difference. Without my story, there would be no ME!
Believe in your DESTINY, Believe in the D.E.V.A in YOU!
