Sunday the 13th was a great and impacting day to the Tampa Bay community. First off i’d like to say it is an honor to be under Pastor Rodney and Adonica Howard-Browne and what a blessing they have been over the years. Well my name is Xan-Jevan and I am a R.S.W (River School of Worship) student at the River at Tampa Bay. I run camera’s every Sunday morning, especially last Sunday I ran the “boom” camera. What a blessing it is to be able to capture those images for the people around the world to see and how packed it is in the church. Not only that but the altars as well, Pastor Rodney and Adonica have been blessing this community for almost 13 years now and to see how involved we are to see lives changed for the kingdom of God.
There is absolutely no substitute to see some ones life impacted by God. I was helping after the service directing people to lines for the children to get their Christmas presents, and to me its like they are just toys but I remembered how important getting a present for Christmas or even a birthday can impact your life. On my thirteenth birthday, I remember that my family couldn’t afford to get me anything and how much that even impacted me when I was little. So giving these children a present for Christmas is truly life altering. I just want to say that what Pastors Rodney and Adonica Howard-Browne are doing in Tampa Florida is impacting the nations one person at a time and that its not just them but also the congregation right by their side to help out every step of the way. We are a church that gets out there and wins souls! Actually, I’d like to share a testimony of how much we do impact the community. One day after school I was offered to help move stuff for this lady on one of the bus routes. And she had a lot of stuff to be moved I m just going to tell you now. But I did my best to move as much as possible.
But I didn’t even see how happy she was that we came and helped out. And I saw her that Sunday and she was all in her dress clothes all nice and she gave me the biggest hug and thanked me so much. And it really felt great to put my time and effort into helping my community. So that’s all I have to say and I can’t wait for the television network to get on the road.
