I first met Brother Blair at a Pentecostal meeting in Annapolis, Maryland, 1974. The love of God, the excitement and commitment that poured forth for the mighty work our Lord was doing in New York, ignited a spark in my heart. I remember praying,” The relationship these brothers and sisters have with You is something I so desperately need.”
So at the age of 16, I left for New York with nothing but a few clothes and a quarter in my pocket. Brother Blair, Sister Regina and the small community of believers opened their arms wide, becoming the family I had never known. The teachings and ministry Brother Blair so selflessly with dedication taught has sustained me throughout my life. I think of that scripture, train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart.
Now that I am old, this ministry of God’s incredible love that Brother Blair exemplified will bring me all the way home.
Forever a memory for Brother Blair’s unselfish dedication to Christ LIVES in their family, their children and the community of believers that truly are a reflection of God’s grace, mercy and compassion in this dark and lonely world.
Brother Blair, we love you so much.
