I hope that you have lived, loved, and embraced the joy of life this week I know I truly have. It has been a joy and pleasure to have been able to walk these streets this past week, oh how special to open your eyes one more time.

Hello Moreno Valley,

I pray that your week has been awesome as I come to you this week. I want you to really understand why I chose to take on this task of unfamiliar territory. It all started February 8, 2003, when my whole life changed and God sent me to the scripture in the Song of Solomon that spoke about the true meaning of love, agape love. I have always been a person to have great love for people but reading this book totally changed my life and helped me to better my purpose and what truly, my assignment is on earth.

I began to see things in a different light. I began to see this city in a different way. We are blessed to have such an awesome diverse culture. So what we need to do is cultivate it by getting to know each other, embracing our differences and begin to build our great city into something spectacular.

It would be wonderful for us not to have to get on the freeway to go see a play, a concert or attend a convention. Currently, we do not have our own auditorium, however, we could build it right here in this great city, together. The word says, by faith speak these things that are not as though they were. Let us be a part of the great change in our beautiful city. “oo wee, oo wee” let us build up not tear down, bring businesses and jobs to the city.

Let’s use our knowledge to set these things into motion. Remember to encourage someone today even when that someone is you. Get out of the box...look around and see what you can do to make a change. We are all here for a reason. Let us look forward to building an auditorium with a seating capacity of at least 1200 and expand from there as new events come to our beautiful city.

Speaking of special events, I am very happy to announce that it is that time again to dress up and put on your finest so that you may attend the 46th Annual Ebony Fashion Fair, coming to the Sherman Indian High School Auditorium, on April 1, 2004 at 8:00 p.m. What an elegant affair and special time for us to come together. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to see one of the most elegant affairs this year. Get your tickets in advance, so tell your family and friends and plan to attend. For information or tickets call (909) 722-2997.

Also, I would like to introduce you to the Southern California Witness Project. The Southern California Witness Project is a breast and cervical cancer education program located in Moreno Valley. They offer free mammograms to women over 40 years old that don't have insurance. Their annual fundrasiser will be held on March 27, 2004. If you have any questions you can call them at (909) 485-9334.

Next week as well as the weeks to follow, I pray that I will always bring something to pique your interest. If you have something you would like to share, please feel free to contact me through the Black Voice News. As I have said, I am the eyes and ears of Moreno Valley and I want to hear from you.

Be Blessed
