Bishop Michael J Rogers delivered an incredible, inspiring word and Earnest Pugh’s impressive five octave vocal range mesmerized all those in attendance at the 11th annual prayer breakfast at Martin’s Crosswinds. Bishop Rogers of Tidewater Bibleway Temple Kingdom Church in Portsmouth, Virginia used the analogy that those who believe in the word are not like an egg that breaks or an apple that brusies but more like a tennis ball that bounces back when faced with adversity. Earnest Pugh, who now resides in Houston was equally impressive; singing a medley of his hits “The Great I Am”, “Perfect Peace” and “I Need Your Glory”. The annual prayer breakfast honors twenty pastors for their outstanding work in the community. This year, Washington metro area listeners selected the winners via online voting.The prayer breakfast was sponsored in part by Netwar Defense Corporation; Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center; Washington Regional Transplant Community and Industrial Bank.
