I'm so extremely grateful for #WeAreAbundantLife's PPE Distribution Team and for another successful PPE Distribution Day to support our neighbors in South Dallas at the Joy Empowerment Center!

Presently, total hospital beds and total ICU beds in Dallas County are filled above 70% capacity. If current trends continue, we will reach 100% capacity in a matter of weeks. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that you #stayathome as much as possible, that you wear a mask or face covering in public, that you properly wash your hands, that you keep your hands away from your face, that you remain six feet apart from other persons, and that you limit your travel to essential travel.

A special thank you to the Dallas Black Clergy, the members and staff of Abundant Life A.M.E. Church, and our ministry partners and donors who are supporting these relief efforts at this critical time. If you are able and would also like to support these efforts, and more, please find three ways to give below. However you give, please place "Relief" in the memo or subject. God bless!

It's heartbreaking to see an 8-year-old tell his mom that he wants to be a regular kid. But that's Darian's life as he fights sickle cell disease. The pain he endures prevents him from playing with friends and going to school. In order to beat sickle cell, he will need a bone marrow transplant. Do it for Darian and see if you are the matching donor he desperately needs.

[10/15/17]   What a blessed day at Joy and Agape! The Spirit of the Lord was so high that the altar filled up during praise and worship as people were drawn to the altar! JOYn us next week, October 22nd, for Family and Friends Day on our Agape Campus, 3432 Mingo Street, Dallas, TX 75223. The Rev. Dr. Michael W. Waters is founder and senior pastor of Joy, and senior pastor of Agape.

Come! "Feel the Love, Experience the Joy" that is Joy Tabernacle and Agape Temple!

Can anything bond people together faster or with more strength than the love of Jesus?! Last weekend Pastor Mike and the praise team were blessed and honored to share in worship with our Fairfax Community Church family in Fairfax, VA. They sent out the love of Jesus to meet us before we ever even arrived! We greeted them as strangers and they immediately treated us like family...and family they most surely have become. As Minister Meischelle said today, they were the absolute picture of ministry. We are humbled. We are grateful. We can't wait to see them again!

We cannot overstate our gratitude to God for blessing us with her! Happy Birthday, First Lady Yulise! #Proverbs31
