Happy Anniversary & Birthday letters to the Bishop...
My husband and I just wanted to take time out and wish you Happy Anniversary as you celebrate 24 years in the ministry. We have been reading Bishop Speaks for years and we also feel you’re our pastor as well as you’ve given so much spiritually and socially as well as your everyday insight on life and what it truly means to be a Christian through Bishop Speaks.
Enjoy your anniversary day, Bishop, and I hope you have a standing room turn out at the service because you’ve helped us through your In Touch Ministry and Bishop Speaks as well as so many other people. We are still out of town and will return back toClevelandSunday night of your anniversary service but our love offering envelope is on its way to your church for YOU.
I’m in prison and just saw them interviewing you on FOX8 News as you’re celebrating your 59th birthday and 24th pastor’s anniversary. I remember, Bishop, when you spoke to me in East Cleveland Jail years ago. You told me that if I didn’t get my life together, I would end up either dead or in prison. Now, I’m serving time in prison for life for murder.
After I got out of jail inEast Cleveland, your In Touch Ministry program got me a job and made sure my wife and kids had food till I got my first check. I’ll never forget the help your church assisted me with but, as you see with me being in prison now, I went back to the streets after my wife left me and took the kids. No excuse, Bishop, for what I did. I just wanted to say thanks. I continue to be encouraged by you as I read your Bishop Speaks columns every week here in prison and I always see you on the news.
Bishop, whenever you think you’re not making a difference because people just take, need, and want and never say THANKS, I say THANKS, Bishop, for you having faith in me when I didn’t have faith in myself.
Happy Birthday to you and many more, Bishop Moultry. When I saw you on the news I quickly rushed over to my computer to e-mail you this shout-out. A few years ago, I didn’t have food or toys for my three kids for Christmas and it was “your church,” not the church I attended, that brought food and toys to my apartment. I’ll never forget that experience. Also, I want to make note that the food was real food and not just can goods that go with nothing. Plus, it was a large ham and turkey with all the other things that go with it.
Bishop, you’ve been around and on point for years. I just thank you and you’ll be proud to know that now I live in a house that I own, I have a great job, great credit, my own car which I’ll be driving to take food and toys to a single mother just like me this holiday season.
It was you, Bishop, who taught me to bless others as I’ve been blessed. You didn’t give me a “hand-out,” but a “hand up,” when your ministry assisted me and my family.
I’ll always love you, Bishop, for truly being on the Battlefield for the Lord.
I just heard Wayne Dawson on FOX8 NEWS speak highly about you and I’m e-mailing you to say I agree with him 100 percent and more.
Bishop you’re powerful, yet humble and down to earth with any and everybody. You have a joy within you that it seems nobody can touch. As my husband said, and I agree with him, that as you get older in age, you look younger as you did in that live interview on the TV.
Bishop, continue to keep up the fight for the Lord and know so many people love you when you might feel that you’re not loved or appreciated as so many pastors might feel at times.
Again, Happy Birthday!
