Hello COCHUSA Family,
On Friday evening 6-Apr-2018, the Northern District of the Western Diocese met at Emmanuel COCHUSA in Oakland, CA for a choir rehearsal to prepare ourselves for a KJA Scholarship Benefit Concert the following night. The well-planned weekend was awesome! There was a very beautiful VIP Per-Concert Reception held on Saturday evening for the larger donors with all the trimmings. The Saturday concert was headlined by recording artist Sister’s Robin Hodge-Williams, Yvette Carter and myself. The fund raiser was supported by the Western Diocese and God really blessed their giving!! The target amount to raise was $10,000! All indications show that they are almost there. We’ll all learn together what was raised at the National Convention during the scholarship presentations when they’ll announce the amount raised and present it to the KJA Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is for COCHUSA young people only. Last year, thirteen $1,000 scholarships were presented to our deserving youth! —- “God Is Good!!!”
Northern District President Sis Jill Gilbert and Planning Committee and Western Diocese Congress President Deacon Ken Winn are to be commended for a job Well-Done for heading up this great weekend of contributions and concert. We ALL THANK YOU WESTERN DIOCESE….VERY MUCH!!
