It was last year when THE GIFT was birthed in the heart of Sheilah Belle “The Belle” after going through one of the toughest fights in her life. She was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and later endured chemotherapy and radiation treatments along with surgery with an end result stating, “No More Cancer.”
Through that journey, “The Belle” experienced many of the ups and downs and side effects that usually accompany the treatment. Trusting God to get her through, He did, with an amazing testimony that follows and was shared last December at the first “The GIFT” program. Because of the success of The Gift, and seeing the need to allow more people to share their testimony and the gift of life that God has given them, The Belle has decided to make this an annual event which will now be accompanied with Gift give-aways and award recognition.
“There use to be a time, when churches allowed their members to share their testimonies any given Sunday and during the week. From financial blessings to healing, the microphone use to be always hot and ready. Unfortunately we don’t see too much of that anymore, however during “THE GIFT” we hope to change that, and welcome everyone who has a testimony to share,” says The Belle.
SO…Save the date for a special evening as RVA comes together to celebrate “THE GIFT” with Gospel Recording artists Ruth La’Ontra, Jacinta, The Legendary Ingramettes, Peggy Britt, James Johnson and Pastor Larry Miles. Dr. Cora Harvey Armstrong and Minister Sheilah Belle will be co-hosting the evening.
This epic and historic evening will take place on Saturday, December 9, 2017 @ 6pm at St. Paul’s Baptist Church, 4247 Creighton Road, Richmond, and is absolutely FREE to the Public.
Also hear testimonies from those who have overcome their struggles with Cancer and how God gave them the strength to push through. Sharing their testimonies this year will include, Martina Smith, Barbara Bell, Regina Hall and some of the ladies from the Sisters Network Central Virginia and others who sign up during the night of “THE GIFT.”
This will be a powerful evening to celebrate life, Caregivers, Cancer Survivors, Breast Cancer Survivors, and anyone who has been in an extremely challenging situation, but beat the odds with God’s help during your journey.
“We often hear people say, ‘Early detection is key’, when it comes to getting a mammogram, However I would like to change that to, ‘Early detection can save your life,” says The Belle. Words are powerful and understanding the importance of getting your mammogram and how that is communicated to the public CAN save lives. I sincerely pray we are able to communicate that point during “The Gift!”
Come expecting to be empowered, uplifted and inspired!
The colors for the evening are Winter White, Pink, or Black, or anything festive!
We are coming together to celebrate life and to thank Jesus for it!
Please JOIN us for this special evening as we celebrate life and YOU! You don’t want to miss this!
This event is FREE and open to the public!
