God is good all the time! For a few months, I’ve been praying asking God to #guide me, asking God to #direct my steps. I asked God to place me where he #needed me and to show me my #truecalling. God then told me to #fast on #Mondays. So, every Monday for the last two months, I have been fasting from Midnight to Sundown. One day while fasting, God said Oakland. Oakland?! What?! God, you must have lost your mind! I have never been to Oakland, let alone California, but then my gut started churning and warming up and I knew in that moment that it was the Holy Spirit and with that word, I started to cry, because I knew God was telling me to move. From my cozy town in VA to the other side of the country. But once he told me my location, he gave me my calling. To create a community for LGBTQ+ people of color that believe in God and give them a space to fellowship with other believers. Black, Queer & Saved, is for any person of color, not just African Americans. Within this platform, we are also establishing a BQS Foundation, which will allow us to sow seeds into the community and each other.
