Gospel Singer Yolanda Adams belted out her hits at Antioch Baptist Church last week. She was here as part of Antioch's Family conference which features guest preachers and singers from all over the country. Yolanda did a great job as usual and she looked great! In addition to singing, she also preached a little between her three songs. She told the audience that after two bad marriages she's learned to "really" love God.

I had a great time at Antioch's Baptist Church's Family and Friends Day Sunday. I enjoyed the wonderful performance of the Clark sisters. Of course I always enjoy hearing Dr. John Adolph's powerful word. Congrats on a great day and an awesome family conference which is taking place every Wednesday. If you haven't attended yet, you're missing some powerful speakers (Rev. Al Sharpton was there last week) and powerful singers. Gospel Sensation Yolanda Adams will be in Beaumont on Wednesday.
