Bishop N. L. Woods International Outreach Ministries
Don't Give Up
Women’s conferences focus on health, parenthood and marriage. The concept changes each year. Whereas the men's conference, Voices of a Godly Man(Man to Man), allows young men to see adult men in their natural habitat, teaches them about leadership, guiding families and responsibility. I come from a great background My mother and father were great motivators. My dad was a Navy man; my mother was a nurse. In our family, failure was not an option.
But along the way my life took a turn to the point at which I didn’t care about much of anything I was alive but not living, One day I just got tired of living my life without a purpose and I decided to go back to my roots — church. The only thing I wanted to do was find peace and I knew I could find it in church. I never thought that I would become a pastor but I realized that all my past was for my present. Everything I went through was preparing me for the work I am doing now which is why I am so passionate about never giving up on anyone.
My ministry is built on recovery. I believe God has designed all of us, to help everyone recover from whatever they are going through. I know someone helped me. A gentleman came and prayed with me in the middle of a lumber yard in Mill port, AL at a time when I was close to giving up completely and my whole concept of life changed. I wanted too not only be alive, but to live and to make a difference. Unbeknownst to me the man God sent to pray with me was Bishop: Leonard R Howell, of Aberdeen Ms, and Presiding General Bishop over ALL NATIONS MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL. Wow; God came for me through this Bishop. From that moment on; Every thought, idea and action has been driven by God to make sure that the next person that's going through can see God in all my actions.
BE THE MIRROR; let someone see the good in them, through you.
