Imagine slaves working in the fieldsand singing “Have you got good religion?Cert’nly Lord - Cert'nly, Cert'nly Cert'nlyLord” and instantaneously being uplifted.Everywhere in our world there is mystery. Everywherethere are questions. Religion offers answers, consistencyand hope.A childhood friend had rheumatic fever. As a result she nowhas a heart condition, is anorexic, has high blood pressure,is a chain smoker and recently had a brain aneurysm. Byany normal medical calculation, the doctors say she shouldbe dead. Instead, she takes care of her 8 month old greatgrandchild. She believes that God has a plan for her. Sheenjoys every moment of her life, never complaining butalways thankful and serving others despite her health.Researchers at leading medical schools say that active religious practices and beliefs are associated with longer,healthier and yes, happier lives. While doctors don't necessarily understand why this is, many religious leaders proclaim that religion is important not because they know allthe answers but because they have the best answer there is:FAITH. So brothers and sisters let's keep the FAITH.Sister Yvonne John, EditorAnd be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving oneanother, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthyEphesians 4:32to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.There is one thing that we should keep when we give itRomans 8:18 our word.

MINISTER’S CORNERBeing Prayerful in Your Christian Walk What is "Your Christian Walk"? Simplyput, it is our daily lifestyle - the way welive, our conduct and/or behavior - It isthat which the people around you see.Our lifestyle can draw others to Christ orit can push them away from Him; thus, itis very important to develop an on-goingrelationship with our Lord and SaviorJesus Christ.Your Christian Walk is living according to the principlesof God; that is, " Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" (Matthew 22:39). Ephesians 5:2 says "And walk inlove, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himselffor us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour."During this Christian walk, faith in God and daily communication with Him are required. The Bible gives usexamples in men and women such as Daniel, Nehemiah,Paul, Elisabeth, Mary and Hanna. Throughout the NewTestament we are given the value of prayer as well as thebest example, Jesus. In:Luke 6:12 - "And it came to pass in those days, that he went outinto a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God."PULPIT COMMITTEEThe Mount Horeb Pulpit Committeeheld its first organizational meeting onWednesday, April 1, 2009. The following members are Anna Hartsfield,Chair; Leola Jenkins, Vice Chair; CraigM. Hawkins, Secretary; JamesBoseman, Crystal Jackson, Elicia John,William E. Morris, David Powell,Joseph Saunders, Eliza J. Stevens, andJoyce Williams; with Gerald Mooreand Ronald Hawkins, serving as Alternates. Internal working groups from this committee will be established for specific search tasks, as the need arises. The Pulpit Committeemembers are committed to being impartial, will not compromise the integrity of the process, request your feedback, andwill be transparent to the Mount Horeb Church Family.Ongoing updates in the search process will be provided toMount Horeb’s membership. The committee requests yourcontinued prayers for God's spiritual guidance and unity ofour Church as we move through this critical undertaking.Submitted by Sister Anna HartsfieldHE HEARD HIMWhy Not Me?Luke 21:36 - "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye maybe accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come topass, and to stand before the Son of man."Luke 22:32 - "But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not:and when thou aret converted, strengthen thy brethren."Luke 22:44 - "And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly:and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down tothe ground."John 16:26 - "At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say notunto you, that I will pray the Father for you."Let us remember we can find many other examples within the 66 Books of the Holy Bible. I would like to leaveyou with one other and it is Acts 1:13-14:"And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room,where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew,Phillip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the sonof Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication,with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with hisbrethren."Just like Jesus and those gathered in the Upper Room, wetoo need to pray. The power of prayer can help us withall issues of life. It is a good thing to believe that prayerchanges things.May God bless you.Reverend Dr. Melvin WallaceGod provides all the spiritual armor we need.Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his Godout of the fish's belly, And said, I cried by reasonof mine affliction unto the Lord, andhe heard me;out of the belly of hell cried I,and thou heardest my voice.For thou hadst cast me into the deep,in the midst of the seas;and the floods compassed me about:all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight;yet I will look again toward thyholy temple. When my soul fainted within meI remembered the Lord:and my prayer came in unto thee,into thine holy temple But I will sacrifice unto thee withthe voice of thanksgiving;I will pay that I have vowed.Salvation is of the LORD.(Jonah 2:1-4, 7, 9)SALVATION IS OF THE LORD.Submitted by Sister Elizabeth Dortch

YOUNG PEOPLES’ CORNERSPELMAN COLLEGE GLEE CLUBSISTER TENAYA PRINCEWINS TWO PRESTIGIOUS RESEARCHAWARDSCame To Mount Hor ebMechanical engineering student,Tenaya Prince, has recently beennamed the Region 2 First PlaceWinner of the UndergraduateStudents in Technical ResearchRegional Showcase (URRS)award and the Second PlaceWinner of the Focus Research on EntrepreneurialEmpowerment (FREE) award. Prince has done extensiveresearch on embedded resistors and has won these honorsbased on her paper, "Trimming of Embedded Resistors: 3 DElectrical Modeling."On Sunday, March 15, theMount Horeb Baptist Church(MHBC) opened the 2009 concert series with a much anticipated performance by the SpelmanCollege Glee Club. The Churchspent months planning, promoting and pitching the legacy andstar appeal of the Glee Club. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, theSpelman Glee Club consists of roughly 60 female voicesprimarily trained to sing classical, traditional spiritual,gospel, jazz and choral music. However, to limit the GleeClub to a handful of genres would be a great injustice to thediscipline, poise and talent that these young women possess.While visiting MHBC on their Annual Spring Tour (otherstops included New York City, Columbus, OH and a jointperformance with the Harvard University Glee Club), theladies amazed and inspired the crowd by performing selections in Korean ("Arirang"), Czech ("Ach! Synku Synku")and Spanish ("Las Amarillas"). At other times in the concert,the young women played instruments and conducted as thedirector looked on, proving that these phenomenal musicians will not be confined to only singing! At one point, twounderclasswomen were recognized for having arranged twoAfrican-American spirituals ("Go Down, Moses" and"Rock-a My Soul"); an impressive accomplishment for evena seasoned musician.As first place winner of the URRS award, Prince presentedher research at the National Society of Black Engineers(NSBE) national convention in March. Of the six nationalregions, Prince is the winner for Region 2, which is comprised of over 2,400 collegiate student members. Thesemembers represent chapters throughout Pennsylvania,Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.C., West Virginia,Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.Sponsored by NSBE, this first place tribute consists of a trophy and a 200 monetary award. As a result of expandingher research to include its entrepreneurial potential, Prince isalso honored with the FREE award, sponsored by theUniversity of Maryland Black Graduate Student Association(NBGSA) and the Black Engineers Society (BES). As a second place winner, Prince has received a certificate of participation and a 200 monetary award.Currently, Prince is the PCI Co-Chair for the NationalSociety of Black Engineers and is involved with many volunteer activities including Operation Caring Spirits--an AirForce volunteer program, Christmas in April and Walk forEducation. She has won other awards including several academic awards and the Michael L. Cherry Scholarship award,"for community service and being an inspiration to others."As a mechanical engineering senior, she is looking forwardto her upcoming graduation in Fall 2009. Post graduation,she plans to pursue a career with General ElectricTransportation in their Edison Engineering DevelopmentProgram, after which she plans to enroll in graduate school.2009 CHURCH PICNIC: It's picnic time again!Make sure the date of Saturday July 18th is highlighted onyour calendar.There will be great fun, delicious food, the best fried fishand wonderful fellowship for all. Your participation willmake this occasion a great success!Trustees Janice Caldwelland Gerald AndersonThe young women only added to their allure and charm asthey warmly embraced the MHBC family and friends afterthe concert at a reception. They welcomed questions aboutboth the Glee Club and the College, as well as about theirindividual experiences as student-musicians. The choir'sdirector, Dr. Kevin P. Johnson, was on hand to meet andgreet the crowd and offer wisdom and advice to aspiringSpelmanites. After the formalities, the women enjoyed ahearty meal prepared by the Church and several alumnaejoined them to "roast" the director and reflect fondly on theirdays at Spelman and/or in the Glee Club. But Spring Tour isa job like any other, so immediately after dinner, the womenwere rehearsing for the next day's performance before calling it a night. Members of the Church provided homestaysfor the Glee Club, a tradition that has lasted many generations in the organization's 80 year history. The next morning the Glee Club reunited at the Church and after anotherlocal performance, headed to Queens, NY for a day of shopping and relaxation before returning to Georgia. The choirmade it back home safely later that week and was mostgrateful with the love and service they received at MountHoreb. We welcome you anytime, Spelman Glee Club!Submitted by Sister Suneye Holmes

ABOUT OUR CHRISTIAN EVANGELISM NEWS SUMMER DAY CAMPOur Christian Summer DayCamp (CSDC) is an ongoingprogram that takes place everyJuly; our camp is based onGodly principles and rooted andgrounded in Christ. Childrenbetween the ages of five and thirteen are able to attend theCSDC. Activities are planned that are meant to enrich andstimulate them while they are having fun. Each Summer fortwo weeks in July, their day starts with daily devotions. Onmost days field trips are scheduled and we do our best tomake them exciting and memorable. Some of the trips takenare: the Smithsonian Museum of African Art to participatein playful performances for Children, the Natural Historyand American History Museums, National Gallery of Art,Air and Space Museum, Botanical Gardens, Waterfront tourand boat ride (Harbor Police display), Pontoon Boat Tour atthe Bladensburg Waterfront Park to observe wildlife,National Aquarium, Smithsonian's Discovery Theater, theSculpture Garden, the Publick Playhouse to see the RussianCircus and a trip to the Public Library.In addition, the CSDC provides arts and crafts, liturgicaldance classes, movies and other recreation activities including gospel skating, bowling and swimming. The childrenhave lunch and snacks each day. As you can see, the twoweeks of CSDC are filled with activities.We are constantly looking for ways to enrich our childrenand in the process we hope to leave them with some happymemories of their CSDC experience. We always need sponsors to enable more children to participate in the CSDC andto provide trips for the children that otherwise may be toocostly. Moreover, we need adults to go on the field trips andto share their resources and talents with our children. Anyhelp you are willing to give the camp will be greatly appreciated. Donations may be left in the church office.Sister S. Tijuana WilliamsObeying God's rules pleases Him.EHIGIE IRABOREhigie Irabor, a student of Hardy Middle School,has been selected as a Student AmbassadorRepresentative for the People to PeopleOrganization in Australia. This honor can be alife-altering experience for him. However, to participate in this most rewarding opportunity,approximately 7,000 will be needed. Personsinterested in helping Brother Irabor raise these funds are encouragedto send tax deductible contributions to Mount Horeb Baptist Churchin care of Ehigie Irabor Ambassadorship. Contributions must be inby May 31, 2009.The second training session of theseries on Evangelism for 2009 was heldin the Christian Education Building.Reverend Wallace led the sessiondescribing Relational Evangelism andPeer Evangelism and giving examples.The overall objective of the training session was to learnstrategies to mentor, train, nurture and evangelize disadvantaged, at risk youth from the foster care system, using relational and peer evangelism, called "Nurturing andEvangelizing Children of Promise."Foster children are God's children, and He loves them. Theyhave been gifted with God-given purposes, but many timesthe gifts have been smothered and therefore hidden.Evangelizing these children is important in the context of arelationship. Nurturing first, because you must meet thechildren where they are. Evangelism second because manyof these youth have issues around trust.Historical data shows that approximately 78% of all conversions come out of the context of a family or a personal relationship.Because friends can influence friends, discussions werearound ways to develop friendships with this lost population. Develop a personal relationship, build trust, then evangelize was the poignant strategy shared. This is relational orlifestyle evangelism. Peer evangelism, as discussed, is asubset of relational evangelism, primarily as a way for theyouth of Mount Horeb to be engaged in evangelism. This iswhere peers, those either by age, school or social friends, orby persons who have been in at risk situations and havecome through and are now serving God. Therefore, it isimportant to first develop a relationship, build trust, thenpresent the Gospel.The session closed with a real life talk from a former fosterchild who is now an adult and is serving God. She came tothe Lord in the context of a relationship through the fosterfamily who raised her. This is an excellent example of Godusing the foster care system to reach a soul and showing Hislove.Submitted by Sister Anna HartsfieldPRAYER REQUEST : We pray that the Churchwill continue to come together in unity and prayer eachFriday morning at 8:30 a.m. (or throughout each day)while we search for a Pastor.Deacon James Boseman, Chairman

THE DIXON FAMILYThe Dixons met while serving in the United States Navy and were married in 1991. Sister BeverlyDixon is the fifth of nine children and was born and raised in East St. Louis. She retired from theNavy in 1994 with the rank of E6. She joined Mount Horeb in 1996. Brother Elijah Dixon has ayounger and older sister. He was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. He has been amember of Mount Horeb since 2006. They attend the 7:30 a.m. Sunday Worship Service.Sister Dixon is one of nine Mount Horeb “Quilting Queens.” As a member of the TuesdayQuilting Club, Sister Dixon has made over 30 quilts, one of which was given as a door prize at ourlast Fall Festival. She serves as the Arts and Crafts instructor for the Thursday Senior Fellowship Program and teaches these skillsto the youth at our Summer Camp Program.Sister Dixon has a very interesting story detailing what drew her to Mount Horeb. One Sunday while walking down BladensburgRoad, she met and started a conversation with a lady who asked where she was going. She replied that she was searching for aneighborhood church home. The stranger said she was going to Mount Horeb and invited Sister Dixon to join her. Once insidethe Church, the stranger introduced her to lots of people, all of whom were extremely friendly. Sister Dixon felt at home andresponded positively to the call to “come back as often as you like.” What makes this so amazing is that Sister Dixon has not seenthe stranger since that first encounter.Sister Yvonne J. John, EditorDAY OF SERVICEOn Saturday evening, January 17th, I settled down to read my daily Washington Post. I saw anarticle announcing that for the first time a new incoming President was opening the WhiteHouse to visitors the day after his Inauguration. The article provided a web site where you couldapply for admission. Even though I knew thousands of people had probably already applied bythat time of the day and that my chance of getting admitted was slim to none, I submitted anapplication anyway. Once I hit the submit button, I was led into another web site set up byMayor Adrian Fenty. This one asked you to volunteer for a day of service in honor of the Dr.Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday. Not trying to put a White House visit (and possibly meetingPresident Barack Obama) above honoring Dr. King by serving others, I applied to work at RFKStadium. I chose the first shift, 10:30 a.m.-12:00 noon, because I'm a morning person.Monday morning I got up and out early, caught the Metro train to the Stadium and proceeded to wait in line - wait to fill out another form; wait to circle around outside; wait to pass through scanners; wait inside the stadium. Patiently waiting, I met people fromall over the country who were in Washington for the Inauguration of the first African-American President, and who decided to volunteer their time and service also. Finally, when the group that I was part of finished our orientation explaining how we were needed to stuff care packages for soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, we were led to a huge heated tent in the middle of the field.There we picked up a plastic bag, moved from table to table, allowing other workers to drop items in the bag, and at the end of theline zip-locked it and started the process over again. The aim was to fill a total of 3,000 bags per hour, 100,000 for the day.On my second round, folks started shouting and music started playing (Chuck Brown's "I Feel Like Busting Loose"), getting louder and louder. People were saying, "they're here, they're here." I asked, "who's here?" Someone said "Michelle Obama". It seemedlike everyone in the tent rushed to our section (B) to where Mrs. Obama was led in by black suited Secret Service persons, followed by media crews and cameras. Everyone instantly pulled out cell phones and cameras to take pictures, and so did I. I wasable to get three pictures before we were "encouraged" to move on down the line. After I zip- locked my bag, I picked up another to reenter the line. By this time Secret Service had taken charge and gotten things back in order. We were allowed to pass throughthe line five or six at a time, and were told not to pull out anything (cameras). At this time Michelle Obama was at the table passing out supplies. She dropped her item in my bag and when I offered my hand for a handshake, she took my hand in both of her'sand kindly shook it. In a most warm and gracious manner, she said, "How are you? It's nice to meet you." I replied, "Fine, it is apleasure to meet you." She did not rush to let go, but someone (Secret Service) said "MOVE ON!" Volunteers had been encouraged to write letters to soldiers when we left the tent. On stationary provided, I wrote thanking a soldier for serving our countryand wishing God's blessings while on foreign ground and for a safe return home to a new Administration - an Administration thathas brought hope back to this country.Oh, another dignitary was there with Mrs. Obama, Mrs. Biden. Honestly, I can't remember whether or not she put items in my bagas I passed through.Sister Deborah T. Anderson, Reporter
