Family Hour on Sept 21

In an emotional Family Hour Worship Service in which Minister Lawrance Evans' wife and oldest student, Minister Akilah Evans, celebrated her 62nd birthday, Minister Evans praised his wife's sacrifices and contributions to First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. and stressed that although he has to hold frequent fundraisers to offset the expenses of running a church/tutorial program while competing with drug dealers and the negative other elements of street life that often keep black people from participating in a positive activity, he would rather do what he does best: teaching and organizing. It is what his grandmother prepared him for.
