On Her First Ever Visit to Africa Pastor Rosetta West was Honored for Her Years of Service and Sacrifice

GOD has a way of giving back to you allowing you to realize that you are worth something. I cannot beat God’s giving.”

— Pastor Rosetta West

NAIROBI CITY, KENYA, September 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On a recent trip to Nairobi, Kenya, Rosetta West, Associate Pastor at El Shaddai Ministries in Topeka, Kansas received the shock of her life when she discovered that a new kitchen and dining facility at the Glorious Life Learning Center in the Nunguni, Kilungu Region in Makueni County, Kenya was built and named after her. Dr. Dorcas Kavod, founded Glorious Life Learning Center to provide a better option for the families with young school age children. The donation of the kitchen and dining facility furthers this mission to provide the local children with a nutritious meal.

Many houses in the rural communities can barely shelter families from natural calamities such as floods, heavy rains, mud slides and other related weather conditions. Cooking is often done outside the houses in open spaces. Open kitchens are common in most homes and schools in these villages. The fireplace is normally a set of three stones put in a triangular form to support the cooking pot. These open kitchens lack refrigerators. Hence any surplus food spoils.

Unfortunately, there are families that live from hand to mouth. The families with no farms depend on menial jobs earning less than two dollars a day. Institutions like schools and churches have devised free lunch programs to keep the children in schools. Insufficient food and lack of a balanced diet put the children at risk of lifelong physical and learning disabilities. It is this need that caught the attention of Dr. Ruben and Dr. Robin West son and daughter-in-law of Rosetta West. The couple was touched and decided to do something – help build a decent kitchen and dining facility at Glorious Life Learning Center.

“Donating this kitchen and naming it after my mother is directly in line with who I have known her to be all my life.” ~ Dr. Ruben West

Pastor Rosetta West started in youth ministry at the age of 17. She has had various positions in several churches including Sunday School teacher, Young People Willing Workers (YPWW), choir and Sunshine Band (children’s choir) director. She was appointed International Sunshine Band Ambassador because of her willingness to serve. She has served at El Shaddai Ministries for 25 years starting as the Youth Pastor and now serving as an Associate Pastor. She has been a voice and mentor to countless youth throughout the years. In 2018 Pastor West received the I Change Nations Susan Maxine Gibson Global Messenger of Hope Award for her inspirational work and her commitment to enhancing the lives of others. In 2016, she received the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award from President Barack Obama for her volunteer service of over 4,000 hours to the citizens of the United States of America.

On July 18, 2021 at the building dedication ceremony, Pastor West was overwhelmed with emotion when she saw her name on the building. The kitchen and dining facility has the capacity to serve about 50 children as well as modern kitchen equipment, including a refrigerator.

Pastor Rosetta said she is in the legacy stages of her life and this was a crowning moment. She knew the kitchen was being build but never had any idea it would be named in honor of her years of service.

Dr. West loves this quote from Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States, “No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.” This is the exact reason Dr. West and his wife Robin donated and named this facility after Pastor Rosetta. She is and always has been a cheerful giver.

The Rosetta West Kitchen and Dinning Facility will be used by the school, the local church and the community.

Listen With Your Heart (latest book by Platt-Gregory)

Alvina Y. Platt-Gregory's "Poetic Parables; Listen With your Heart" delves into the divine

NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, September 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — With "Poetic Parables: Listen With your Heart" Alvina Y. Platt-Gregory invites her readers into an exploration of the spirit, delving into the depths of the divine to search for inner truths and rekindle one's sense of faith. Her book is a collection of rhymes and verses that touch on common issues with spirituality and people's questions regarding God.

Platt-Gregory's poems bear the message that God is the answer, that his love is never ending and that he wants all to know this. That is why she proclaims this message with her verses, presenting the many facets of that infinite love and how it applies to people's lives. In doing so, she also portrays the many circumstances people experience during their time on Earth. Their relations with one another, how they face the highs and lows that come and go, how they steel themselves during dark and challenging times, as well as when they rejoice in more fortunate moments. An experienced poet, Platt-Gregory used to write for the International Poetic Society and received six Editor's Choice certificates and a Poet of Merit award. This gives her work a balance of poetic craft and passion that elevates it.

Pastor Ted Wisnley, founder of the Family Church in New Jersey and chaplain of the Philadelphia Eagles, has praise for Platt-Gregory's work: "What an amazing and unique book of poetry! 'Poetic Parables' are an engaging and inspiring addition to anyone's daily devotional, this book will encourage you to go deeper in your prayer life and to be more intentional in your spiritual walk with Christ! I highly recommend it!"

"My remarkable relationship with God the father, the son and Holy Spirit inspired me. I wanted others to know that God wants a relationship with them and if there is anything they want to know, just ask him and He will answer but You must listen with your heart." Platt-Gregory says. She suggests that readers meditate in conjunction with experiencing her poems, using the moment as an opportunity to give thanks. "The answer might be different from what you expect but remember God knows what you need."

About the Author
Alvina Y. Platt-Gregory is a retired teacher of health and physical education with a diploma in Biblical Studies. A Born Again Christian, she is a mother of three successful sons and two grandchildren. She has had a virtual booth at the Festival of Storytellers by Reader's Magnet and was a guest on The Daily Spark, a faith radio program hosted by Dr. Angela Chester.

US News & World Report Ranks SWAU #2 for Social Mobility

US News and World Report

US News and World Report

Ranking Recognizes Performance in Graduating Economically Disadvantaged Students

UNITED STATES, September 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — US News & World Report continues to rank Southwestern Adventist University as a top institution. Ranked once again as #2 for social mobility within the Regional Colleges West ranking, SWAU continues to stand out amongst top performing colleges and universities in the United States.

US News and World Report utilizes 17 factors to compile the rankings. Higher education institutions are organized into 10 distinct rankings based on academic mission. For the past three years, social mobility has been ranked as a distinct category. The indicator measures an institution’s performance in graduating economically disadvantaged students who received federal Pell Grants.

SWAU ranked #3 in the inaugural 2020 rankings, #2 for 2021, and once again ranks #2 for 2022. Financial support, academic development and hands-on learning experiences contribute to this ranking.

“Beyond a ranking, social mobility closes the gap of inequity by providing resources, access and support for students to thrive,” shares Ana Patterson, president. “One example of SWAU’s success is that 32% of our 2021 graduating class identified as being the first in their family to graduate from college. That is a statistic to be proud of!”

To learn more about how SWAU supports students regardless of their background or experience, watch this video, which provides further information about the SWAU experience and about how the Office of Student Success is improving academic and career success for students pursing a successful future.

Acclaimed Author, George H. Hassanzadeh Remembers September 11, 2001

George H. Hassanzadeh

By Acclaimed Author, George H. Hassanzadeh

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The impact of the 9/11 attack it’s not a day one can soon forget. My white-eyed pail-faced daughter walked into my room and with a shaky voice declared “Dad we have been attacked,” my stomach dropped. She sat and covered her face.

Calming my daughter, I said “Don’t worry sweetheart, it is an accident. How could a passenger plane attack? And the second plane hit the other tower.

When in 1979, Islam’s new supreme leader Ayatollah Ruhollah of Iran declared the US “The Great Satan” a nation that along with the ‘State of Israel’ should be wiped out, many Islamic countries took that statement as “Islam is on the march,” and Khomeini is their leader.

At first, I thought its Iran’s doing. Iranian American communities were more watchful of terrorism and its effect on their society than American families.

History shows that Persians did not pay much attention to another Arab demand and its consequent.

Persian history reminds us that neither king Khosrow 11 in the seventh century nor Mohammad Reza Pahlavi (reined 1941-1979) in the twentieth century understood the Arab philosophy. As king Khosrow 11 dismissed the warning that Mohammad gave, which resulted in the Muslim conquest of Persia from 634 to 654 AD.

Similarly, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi paid no heed to another zealous Arab demand; the 1979 Arab Ruhollah Khomeini toppled his reign and forever changed the world.

I proudly walked a short distance with Reza Baluchi, a young Iranian American who symbolically represented Iranians, walked from Los Angeles to New York in time for the September 11, 2003 memorial.

GEORGE H. HASSANZADEH born and raised as a Shi’a Muslim in Iran is the author of ‘Iran: Harsh Arm of Islam’ and the newly released book ‘First Comes the Mosque.’ Hassanzadeh is recognized as an expert in Islam, Shi’a, Shari’a, and the infallible Arab Shiite clerics forcing medieval rule and a system of mind control in the 21st century.

George H. Hassanzadeh is a U.S. Army Veteran and lives in California, U.S.A

Inspirational Author, Joan E. Murray, Guides Readers On How To Go Deeper With God

Teach Me to Pray with Guidance from the Bible by Joan E. Murray

I Must Pray: A Guide to A Powerful Prayer Life

Trust God

You Can TRUST Him

A Life Rooted in Prayer, Can Deliver Powerful Breakthroughs

You will discover that even Jesus , the Son of God needed to pray as He faced His difficult assignments. Prayer kept Him steady as he journeyed toward each assignment….”

— Joan E. Murray

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Have you asked yourself, why should I pray? “There are some people who do not pray often because they don’t know what to say,” says international Bible Teacher, Joan E. Murray. "I have found prayer to be a place of solace in the midst of the storms. When people paused to pray and seek His face, God was there to restore peace and hope to their hearts during times of devastation. In prayer, you get to share your most intimate needs with God. You also get to share the longings of your heart with Him, allowing you to then leave the burdens and cares at His feet. I call it "shedding the weight."

In her inspirational book, "I Must Pray: A Guide To a Powerful Prayer Life, Murray aim is to guide readers who are just starting to connect with God through prayer as well as encouragement for those who have battle scars from persevering in prayer. Woven throughout are examples of the Holy Spirit teaching what to do when the enemy tries to distract you. You will discover that even Jesus, the Son of God, needed to pray as He faced His difficult assignments. Prayer is a privileged access to the God of the universe. In these five thought-provoking chapters there are answers for combating prayerlessness and how to get results when you pray.
