The Christian Assembly Full Gospel Church successfully garnered its congregation and community in its “Jericho March” for the purpose of raising awareness for Breast Cancer and praying for God to intervene in the race for its cure.

Cancer, Prayer and Research will destroy you! Victory is mine! Victory is mine! Victory today is mine! The Women of Purpose Ministry of The Christian Assembly Full Gospel Church in Gonzales hosted their first “Breast Cancer Awareness 7 Lap Victory Walk” on Saturday, October 27, 2018. Over 100 people took part in the event. The day started with a 6 a.m. Prayer Vigil led by Pastor Richard Rayborn II. Prayer warriors offered intercession and prayer requests were made for healing and deliverance. Registration began at 7 a.m. and the “Breast Cancer Awareness 7 Lap Victory Walk” started at 8 a.m.

The story of the walls of Jericho falling down, recorded in Joshua 6:1-27, is one that vividly demonstrates the miraculous power of God. The first obstacle the people of Israel faced on their way to the Promised Land was the city of Jericho, an unconquerable, walled city--a stone wall 11 feet high and 14 feet wide, whose top was a smooth stone slope, angling upward at 35 degrees for 35 feet, where it joined massive stone walls that towered even higher. It was virtually impregnable. But, “With God, all things are possible!” God simply told Joshua to have the people to march silently around Jericho for six days, and then, after seven circuits on the seventh day, the priest would sound the trumpets and the people would shout with a great shout.

When we are faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, we must learn that our Jericho victories are won only when our faithful obedience to God is complete. The walls of Jericho fell because God said they would. God’s promises to us today are just as unswerving. They are exceedingly great and wonderfully precious.

The Christian Assembly Full Gospel Church successfully garnered its congregation and community in its “Jericho March” for the purpose of raising awareness for Breast Cancer and praying for God to intervene in the race for its cure. Re-enacting the Israelites’ seventh day of victory, all participants compassed the perimeter of the church campus seven times, silently entreating the Lord to extend His grace and mercy, and to infuse His wisdom and knowledge into the hearts and minds of medical professionals, that the seemingly unconquerable “Wall of Cancer” will come tumbling down. In obedience, on the completion of the seventh circuit, the horns were sounded and God’s people gave a mighty shout, believing God for a miracle.

After the “Breast Cancer Awareness 7 Lap Victory Walk” was completed, we convened in the Christopher Williams Educational Building for an Awards and Recognition Ceremony. Leola Jackson, a seven year Cancer Survivor was the keynote speaker for the event. Cancer survivors were recognized and presented with a gift basket and given the opportunity to share their testimony. Other Cancer Survivors are Ella Mae Davis, Brendolyn Scott and Ronald Jones.

Several walkers participating in the “Breast Cancer Awareness 7 Lap Victory Walk” received medallions. They were Pastor Richard Rayborn II, Jordan Riley, Jace Riley, Dorothy Earl, Theila Hayes, Stacy Smith, Verna Lemon, Elvira Thompson, Crystal Christmas, LaTeikka Pope, Cheryl White, Denikka Hull, Yvonne Hull and Falcolm Hull.

TCA Ushers and Greeters “Blessed Servants of God” received medallions for the most spirited attire. A financial donation of $2,862.00 was raised for Cancer Research.

The Women of Purpose Ministry presented the check to Woman’s Hospital Breast Cancer Research on Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 10 a.m. Melissa Curry and Emily Kline were there to accept the financial donation.

TCA Women of Purpose Planning Committee for the event were Sandra Rayborn, Gloria Gray, Theila Hayes, Dorothy Earl, Joyce Smith, Yvonne Hull and Denikka Hull.

Yes! Victory is mine! Victory is mine!

Cancer, you don’t stand a chance!

Prayer and research will defeat you!
