Personal Update on Rev. Christy, Executive Director
I hope all is well. I had thyroid surgery last week! I had a left lobe lobectomy the previous week. The test results already came back, and the tumors extracted were benign /non-malignant. I am great this week. I’m not taking that for granted, and I’m still taking it easy. God is so Good, and I am so grateful. Still taking it easy this week before we kick into full swing.
January 31, Black Family Submit, Los Angeles
I wanted to drop in, though, and share my website so that you all can see what ministry looks like for me at the moment and soon. I’m presenting at the #BlackFamilySummit National Association of African-American Parents and Youth (NAAAPY) on February 31; for $49.95, participants have the opportunity to register for a white variety of workshops starting at 8 AM and ending around 5 PM. Our flight is at 2:30 PM, and our presentation is #ATasteOfTheVillage. We want to show parents, teachers, and other lovers of children what our full curriculum is like in the hopes that they will register or refer us to others and their networks. You’re invited! I’ll include the link HERE.
At the website you can learn more about who NAAAPY is. I’ll just say here that they are another local nonprofit in the Los Angeles area, serving the educational, emotional, and physical needs of children and families.
