Nuggets Of Wealth for Life and Health: Focus On the City!!

And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace. (Ephesians 6:15)

Hey Neighbor!

Several months ago, a friend of mine, Alonzo Perrin Jr., asked me to participate with his annual, ‘Focus on the City – Back to School Event.’

This year’s event was held at The Jackie Joyner-Kersee (JJK) Center, in E.S.L., on August 6, 2022, and it was once again, a great success!!

Now, Alonzo is a ‘faith-full’ and cheerful giver in the community, where he established this charitable organization as a memoriam to his dad, Alonzo Perrin Sr., of East St. Louis, IL.,

In addition to honoring both his dad, and his mom, Toni Perrin, Alonzo founded ‘Focus on the City’ to ‘give-back’ to ‘The City’ of East St. Louis!!

A little backstory…

Alonzo and I were both born, raised, and educated in East St. Louis; a mostly impoverished black community in southern Illinois, where we faced off with the enemy daily, and no doubt it was both the Holy Spirit and the power of prayer that equipped us to stand firm-footed, and succeed despite the many deficits and challenges we faced!!

We both now work continuously in ‘The City’ to Restore Peace and Pride in Our Community, One Neighborhood at a Time!!

This morning, Alonzo sent me this post from His ‘Focus on The City’ Facebook page and I was of course, humbled and elated…both at the same time!!

(Alonzo and I are pictured above, holding the ‘Can We Pray For You’ sign)

Alonzo shared the story of our ‘Back to School and Prayer’ weekend event quite succinctly, so I won’t attempt to retell it…As I don’t possess that same gift🤣

But I did want to share this Story as Our Nugget of Health and Wealth this Wednesday, because as we begin to crowd the stores to purchase school supplies for our children and grandchildren, and as we begin to equip our children with the readiness for a successful school year, we can’t forget to shod their feet daily with the good news of peace, by praying for their health and safety each and every morning, before they exit our doors to face the enemy!!

I also have to thank my Ever ‘faith-full’ and most supportive hubby, Dewitt for coming out to participate!!

Not only did he volunteer to come out and support me, but he also prayed along with me and for me!!

Many Hugs and Kisses to You, Sweetheart!!😘
