Peace Begins With Me

January 30th, 2017
How to kick off 2017 as leaders of heart and substance? This was the question of the leadership team of WFWP’s Georgia Chapter: co-chairwomen Myrna Lapres and Ekaette Heyliger, and Treasurer Miambi Koko. The team decided to begin by inspiring ourselves and our church community first. That is how it was decided to hold a Bridge of Peace ceremony on January first during the worship service at the Atlanta Family Church in Ellenwood, Georgia. The theme of the Sunday Service was “Peace Begins With Me.”Myrna Lapres gave a short talk to set the tone for the service and served as the emcee. Ekaette Heyliger introduced the Bridge of Peace, and Miambi Koko organized the entertainment and dancing.The program was composed of three elements. The first was reflection and repentance. Then…
On April 30th, the Georgia Chapter of WFWP held the second Real Talk forum. Real Talk is a discussion forum for teenage girls, young ladies, and women to discuss concepts and ideas from WFWP’s CLUE (Creating Love Uplifting Esteem) curriculum. From my own personal experience, the topic of abstinence tends to be more sensitive for females. Although we have a prominently free-sex culture, young women still consider the appellation ‘slut’ shameful.

We also stress the correlation and emphasize that abstinence is not just a religious issue.…
Pastors, youth pastors, and educators were invited to a seminar to discuss why sexual abstinence is important from a spiritual standpoint. "Sister Margaret Muhammad gave the Islamic view, Rev. Samuel Mosteller presented the Christian view, and Rev. Jack Whedbee presented the Divine Principle view," Nandi Moton said. The presentations were able to give the audience a sense of seriousness about the physical and spiritual consequences of premarital sex. "Sister Jo Ellen Paige said she was so inspired by the program she went home and had a deep and honest discussion with her daughter about how to dress. She said she just had to empty herself out and share with her daughter and husband what she heard," Moton said. The Atlanta chapter plans to distribute more Pure Love curriculums for the…
Excitement and electricity were in the air as members of the Atlanta chapter of WFWP gathered together to revisit the critical importance of sexual abstinence before marriage as a necessary step for character building. They also sought to educate parents on how to build a supportive family environment for their teens and single young adult children who have decided to stay pure before marriage. The stirring event took place on January 26 at the Atlanta Family Church. Among the 55 women, also some men, in attendance were Sen. Donzella James, Rep. Sheila Jones, Rev. Samuel F. Mosteller, Apostle Willie Malcolm, Mrs. Richadean Anderson, and Ms. Rena Moroquin. The audience, who were eager to hear what we were about to share, were greeted by our emcee of the day, Ms. Rena Moroquin.…
