I was moved by your story because it mirrowed mine and I thought you were possibly one of the girls that traveled with me. There were quite a few girls that traveled that year who were victims of Grace so (bishop) Delores Beal organized a singing group called the Travelers.<quoted text>
You might know me, I sang in a group but not the Travelers. Traveled all over. Stayed because I didn't know any better. You know how they tried to brain wash us in believing if we left we were doom. When I left, I couldn't believe the blessing I was receiving from God. I paid my tithes to the needy. I feed, clothe and shelter as many people I could help. When I looked down on someone, it was to pick them up. Try going to a UHOP kitchen and see if you can get a free meal........I now read my Bible daily and i thank God, I thank God I truly am Free. oh I live very well retired
I too am retired and now work in the outreach ministries through my church and I feel so fulfilled. I feel my passion to do the work that God intended for me to do in Math. 25:35 was fueled by the lack of any such ministries in the HOP. We are living proof that there is life after the HOP and nothing horrible will happen to you.
I would like to encourage anyone who visit this site and has experienced a feeling that something is not right with the beliefs and practices of the HOP, to find refuge in a bible believing. practicing church and experience a new birth of freedom. As I stated before, I still have family and friends that attend the HOP and I still love them and I pray for them regularly.
I recently attended the funeral of my nephew who was shot. He was a band member so the service was held at the HOP. and the church was filled to capacity with non-members. Its just so amazing how they can preach and sing Jesus, Jesus, Jesus and barely mention Daddy Bailey with no band fanfare. And switch on the very next day and its all Daddy Bailey with full band fanfare. Thats Hypocritical and I know God is not pleased, but I still love them. Agape.
