Prayer Answered! Reconciliation!!!

I have been praying for a very, very, very long time for this day to come to past and GOD answered it!!!

 On December 23, 2018 my Son called his father to reconcile their relationship, which was estranged for a very long time. I don’t know when his heart changed from being enamored with his father to being disenchanted with him but I do know the day when he openly reconciled with him for all to see.

My brother, Pastor Mark of Word Of Christ Ministries, told the church on Sunday, 12/23/18, of how our relationship was estranged for many years because of his ignorance and how we reconciled without bringing up any past hurts between us.  The Pastor also spoke on the broken relationship that was healed with our mother, that God put back together. He said it’s as if we picked up where we left off before our relationship was frayed.

How glorious is GOD to lead Pastor Mark to speak on our past estranged relationship and my brother’s obedience to the prompting of the LORD that Sunday to bring that out for the purpose of finally healing my Son’s wound of his father.

 GOD’s balm for our wounds is strong!

 Love and Blessings

Tell the Devil, God is in the Midst. Thanksgiving 2018

GOD is in the midst of and cares about everything we do, say, feel, think, believe, etc. even down to the very small, minuteness details of our lives.  GOD showed up in the midst of my anxieties and doubts about whether I’ll be in good health during my travels and visit to Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia for the Thanksgiving holiday. HE showed out and let me know that HE is GOD and that HE fails not!!!

I’m usually a very good planner and packer but not this time. My brain and thought processes just haven’t been there at work nor this trip, so this is very unusual for me and that’s when I recognized that the Devil was in the mix.

At work I struggled to get the most mundane task done and completing assignments by the deadline dates were challenging. For weeks prior at work I had the intention to straighten and organize my office before the Thanksgiving break but I didn’t accomplish that either.  So here I was Tuesday night left with packing yet to do for a Wednesday morning departure and had felt the symptoms of a cold brewing all Tuesday at work. My colds usually develop into a nasty upper respiratory infection which lasts at least 10 days and here I was due to travel on an eight-hour drive down South the next day and I wasn’t going to accept what the Devil was trying to stop, GOD’s work. Satan and his demonic spirits were trying to prevent me from going on this trip through a mishap of various things that night but I prayed and prayed and prayed to GOD to help me and give me the strength to do what I needed to do.  As the cold symptoms increased throughout the night now with continual sneezing, running nose and congestion, I continued to move and pack while praising and thanking the LORD for being my FATHER who cares for me in everything that I do and I mean everything I do! I did manage to pray one more time before getting into bed with just 3 hours to sleep.

I fell asleep with all of the classic cold symptoms such as a running nose, congested sinuses and clogged ears that said that my five-day trip would be plagued with nothing but discomfort. BUT GOD’s Word says that HE will never leave you nor forsake you, just trust HIM. GOD delivered me because when I woke up the next morning, all of the cold symptoms were gone. I felt like I never had any symptoms of a cold at all. My Son came in from work at mid-night the night before and asked what’s going on and if I was getting sick before I left. He said to me right before I went to bed that it was just an attack from Satan to discourage me and that’s all it was, an attack because 24-hours later on Black Friday I’m sitting here at my sister’s house in North Carolina cold free.

To get through some tough times and thoughts I’ve combined choruses from two Christian songs that I like and have made it my mantra when things are getting trying and challenging in my life: “Tell the Devil no not today because I’m fully known by the LORD and HE loves me anyway.”  Trust and believe that because GOD cares and is in the midst of everything we do! Nothing is too small or too great for GOD, trust and love HIM. 

With love and blessings,

Celebrating the Life of Vivian C. Irvin

Her Life Story

January 31, 1920, Benjamin Irvin and Azalea Walker welcomed their first baby girl into the world and named her Vivian C. Irvin. Vivian was the oldest of eight children, three sisters and four brothers. She was educated through the Berlin New Jersey public school system. She was an avid reader. She loved to read all genres but her favorite subject to read about was the preparation of health food.

Vivian loved to cook and travel. In her earlier days she loved to go to the spa. Cooking health food and playing cards were two of her favorite past times. Vivian had a very generous heart and had a genuine love for all people especially her friends and family. Vivian opened her home and cared for two friends that were ailed with mental disabilities. She loved them dearly and they lived with her for 15 years.

Even though she loved everyone, she loved the Lord Jesus Christ the most! She faithfully attended church throughout her entire life and would testify to anyone she came in contact with. She was beloved by all of her church family and friends and became known as Mother. Although Mother loved everyone there were a few people that held a very special place in her heart. Mother had a very dear friend that was her neighbor for many years. In fact Mother referred to her as her “Angel” because she was so good to her throughout the years.

Mother attended Word of Christ Ministries for worship in her later years and developed a very loving relationship with Elder Mark Thompson. She referred to Elder Thompson as her Son. Mother lived out her last months in Elder Thompson’s home where she was very happy. She loved Sunday when all the kids would come over and you could always spot her passing out dollars or candy to the little ones.

Vivian loved to laugh and was very fun, loving, and smart. She was known as the family historian and would provide information about her family lineage as far back as the 1880’s.

Vivian  was preceded in death by her mother, Azalea Walker, father, Benjamin Irvin, sisters, Lillian Felton, Azalea Aikens, and Ruth Keys, and brothers, Benjamin Irvin, George Irvin, Paul Thomas, and Charles Thomas.

The family would like to give a special thanks to Diane Zilka and Yvonne DeBrow, Mother’s Angel, for all of their help and support.

Lovingly submitted,

The Family of the Word of Christ Ministries

The Chief Surgeon of Heaven!!!! JESUS!!!

Hello WOC ministries, my name is Ms. Sales. My testamony is about my 5 year old cousin. He was having continuous seizures that became a threat to his health, so the doctor decided that brain surgery would be the best treatment. My family and I immediately began to pray, and called on Elder Thompson to join us in prayer becsuse he is a known prayer warrior. Feb. 11th 2017 Elder Thompson came to pray for my cousin and annointed him with oil. Elder Thompson, hearing from the Lord, prophecied that my cousin would not only be ok but would no longer have seizure and would have a speedy recovery. My cousin had surgery and is doing great. He came home on Feb 22nd, 2017 and you can hardly tell he had surgery at all. I thank God and Elder Thompson for his prayers and the word of comfort he delivered from the Lord. My cousin is a prime example that God is still performing Miracles!!!!!!!

Blessings to the WOC Ministries ,

Ms. Sales
