THANK YOU 05.19.12

THANK YOU Muskogee … The Southeast Regional Youth and Supervisors Conference held April 26-28 in Muskogee was a huge success. Young people and their supervisors from Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas were in attendance. On Thursday evening there were approximately 650 people in attendance at the Muskogee Civic Center for the Youth Concert and Rally. The services provided by the Muskogee Civic Center staff were exceptional. On Friday we were co-hosted by Bacone College on their campus and all of the young people had an opportunity to hear information about their scholarship programs. The closing exercises were held Saturday and there were approximately 450 people in attendance Friday and Saturday. This was an opportunity to show young people in Muskogee something different and positive while providing them with Christian training and information about how to prepare for life through post-secondary education. We were able to do all we did because the citizens of Muskogee were kind and thoughtful enough to step forward and show their ability to work together as a team. So to everyone in Muskogee who helped us the conference I want to say THANK YOU! God bless.

The Rev. M. J.

Coleman, Th.D., MBA

WORDS CANNOT express the heartfelt gratitude that all have shown during the home going of our daughter, Kaylynn Ruth Baker. The love, prayers, visits, calls, food, and all acts of kindness shown truly reflects the fruits of the Holy Spirit. We thank God for all of you in helping us get through this most difficult time in our lives.

There are so many we would like to say thanks to, however you know who you are. Pastor Coleman of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, we thank you sir personally for opening up the doors of your church for our beloved daughter Kay Kay’s home going celebration and the officiating you did speaks volumes of who you are and the relationship you have with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Pastor Charles Moore, my brother in Christ Jesus, thanks doesn’t give you justice for all the hard work you did in getting everything organized with the Muskogee Community Choir and others. Sister Marsha Newton and the Muskogee Community Choir simply stated, my daughter has always looked up to you even when you didn’t realize it, you definitely made a difference in her life and was a role model that she often spoke highly of.

As for me, the Muskogee Community Choir you blessed us with your voices like always and the Baker-Robbins family thank you for all the hard work and time spent, may God keep on blessing you. My nephew, Pastor Michael Webber, your words of encouragement and our private talks we shared were inspired by God and were truly priceless. We as a family must keep carrying the blood stained banner. Muskogee Ministers Alliance thank you for your support and presence, it made a difference in knowing that you are along.
