Hello World! It's always a blessing to communicate with you! So much has gone on in the world. ThresholdWorld partnered with From Crisis to Christ, a ministry led by Evangelist Joycelin Allgood, LSW at Rapha Evangelistic Worship Center in Brooklyn, New York last Saturday, September 10th for World Suicide Prevention Day.
L-R-Joycelin Allgood, Melanie Lewis, Wanda McKiver, Adalia Raye Gwaltney Over 500 copies of information was distributed in the community of Ocean Hill/ Brownsville/ Bedstuy! We need your assistance to make it 1000 or more next year. Attendees shared personal stories of triumph over suicide attempts, thoughts, and feelings associated with this mental health issue. We prayed, read scriptures of instruction and sang songs of encouragement. We were blessed to have Wanda Mckiver, author and playwright of Black Rose Diaries, -(currently in production for Times Square) as well Ms, Adalia Raye Gwaltney, author of Wisdom Flows from the Heart: Inspiration for the Heart & Soul. During the candle light ceremony -showing support for prevention, remembering loved ones and for the survivors, we were blessed to have musical artist MikaiEL, known as Pastor Mike of Rapha Evangelistic Worship Center, You can view a snipit of this by liking us on fb and finding it on our page. The World Health Organization, (WHO) reported that one million people in the world commit suicide every year. We pray that our prayers, advocating for life, dismeneing information and speaking aloud about this silent killer will lessen those statistics in the world. Save the date for next year. Monday, September 12, 2012. We will celebrate life with friends, family and loved ones. This comes at a time of remembering 9/11. While we honor those that serve and remember loved ones, we celebrate their memory and those that continue to live. Peace and Blessings!
