MADISON REDEEMERS CELEBRATE ANNIVERSARY
BY SAINT JOSEPHINO POND

     On February 15, 2003, the Madison Redeemers celebrated another anniversary and it was a great success. They are continuing to grow spiritually. They have been encouraged with the return of Brother Tony White in February, 2003. We were happy to see the Redeemers performing in Augusta again. They are an integral part of Atlanta and they make us proud.


     The Redeemers were the 2nd top auxiliary reporting Convocation during Daddy Madison's visit to Augusta, Georgia, on March 27, 2003. We wish The Redeemers much success in all their endeavors as they continue to grow in Christ and in the ministry of their music.


HOLY GHOST REVIVAL IN ATLANTA: "PLEASE DON'T LET THIS HARVEST PASS"
BY SAINT JOSEPHINO POND


     During the week of February 23 through March 1, 2003, Atlanta was blessed to experience an "Ole Time" Holy Ghost revival was conducted by National Evangelist, Apostle S. Sunkins of Newport News, Virginia. The unsaved were seeking to get saved and the saved were renewed in their strength. Three members testified to having received the gift of the Holy Ghost. Additionally, three visitors were inspired by the word of God dispensed by Apostle Sunkins to join the House of Prayer. We thank God for our bands; the Madison Redeemers and the Madison Shout band, who labored with us nightly. Their spiritual elevation was significantly apparent in their smooth melodious sounds emanating from their instruments into the wee hours of the morning. We are proud to claim a new title "Not The Love Corner, but Love On The Rooftop,"given to Atlanta by Apostle Sunkins, as appreciation for the love that he and his wife experienced during their stay.

BY SAINT JOSEPHINO POND

     On February 22, 2003, A Tri-State Youth Convention was held in Atlanta, Georgia. Brothers and sisters from across the states of Georgia, Florida, and Alabama united in fellowship. It was a pleasure to be able to lift up the name of the Lord in song and praise with friends and families who traveled far to attend. That evening, the eight o'clock prayer service was powerful. There was barely standing room from one end of the sanctuary to the other.
