Guestbook

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints" (Psalms 116:15 KJV). I praise God for allowing me to meet Evangelist(Mother) Jessie L. Matthews, in 1972, through her daughter, Julia, while attending Natchez Jr. College, Natchez, MS. She labored with me until I was truly filled with the Holy Ghost according to Acts 2:4. She was a great soldier in the army of the Lord. A great example of a true soldier for Jesus! Thank you, Mother Jessie for keeping up with me! My deepest sympathy to the family. This is the time to draw near to Jesus for comfort and strength now and in the days ahead. She left you (us) in the care of JESUS! Lifting you up to God in sincere prayer!
