Diamonds and Praise

'From Pressure to Diamonds and Praise' was the theme for the Pilgrim Baptist Church Women's Day service. Sis. Wanda August of Emmanuel Baptist Church was the guest speaker for the occasion. Giving emphases on the pressures women have to endure and yet they are as diamonds, solid and able to withstand all that come upon them. Chairpersons, Sis. Latricia Rodrigue and Sis. Stefanie Rodrigue said they were blessed to have Sis. August as the speaker because it was her mentoring that helped them to become today's diamonds. Rev. Lionel Griffin is the pastor of Pilgrim Baptist Church in Paincourtville, Louisiana.
