    Pastor I would like to say…thank you for the word you allowed the Lord to bring forth last night at Bishop Jones church. I am not a member there but you answered a lot of questions I had, as well as confirmed things. I have been through a great deal of things and I was wondering why I had to go through them. But when your Pastor prophesied to me I knew that you all really heard from God. I had just ask God to show me who he really his. I was raised in church and married at a young age and the woman I loved, was in loved with my pastor who was my uncle. I then left church and went into the gay life style and caught the virus(HIV), and decide to leave the life style and remarried my ex-wife, only to find out that while we were married for seven years, she was sleeping with my uncle six of those years. I hated church and I felt that God hated me. But I knew that I still felt a pull from God to come back. I saw God in you and I really thank you for allowing him to use you. Thank you Pastor Manny..thank!
