Project Because we Care (B.W.C.)


                                               1  JANUARY 2021

From the desk of the Apostle as we embark upon the year of 2021 many in the world have their trust in the COVID19 vaccines, the new leadership changes in our government, and the big promises from them.  

But as Christians we must put all our trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and Him alone.  In this upcoming year we must be in tune with what He is saying to His Church through His prophets (Revelation) that will lead to our (Transition) into the (Possession) of what God has for us.

Even though we will have struggles & opposition in 2021 we must stay Focused and remember we can’t lose with God on our side.  May we put our trust in nothing less than Jesus Christ blood and His Righteousness.






DEUTERONOMY 11:10-12 KJV… 10 For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:

11 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:

12 A land which the Lord thy God careth for: the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.


May the Lord continue to Bless & keep you in Jesus Name.


Apostle L.R. Gooden Jr.
