Shouts of praises and adoration to OUR GOD have been going up in our house, and in the homes and churches of our family and friends since we learned of Pastor Samuel's detention in Istanbul Turkey last Sunday (June 6th, 2021).
What you need to know first and foremost is GOD DID IT! He rescued Pastor Samuel as He promised He would for those who call on His name. Pastor Samuel is home and recovering from the harrowing ordeal that had him facing 25 years of imprisonment in an Istanbul Turkey jail.
Turkey is known for its harsh penalties and inhumane treatment of the incarcerated. But God has a greater plan for Pastor Samuel's life and ministry. Our heartfelt thanks to our family, friends, community of ministers, political leaders and prayer partners who battled with us in the spirit, offered us wise counsel, and extended their influence and favor by faith to facilitate the release of our dear pastor.
We want to personally thank:
Pastor Rich Wilkerson Sr., of Trinity Church Miami
Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr., of Vous Church
Pastor Jonathan C. Carey of Glad Tidings Key West

Abdullah Cacan, Attorney
The Honorable Shannan Ighodaro, Councilwoman, Miami Gardens, FL
