2008 is Great!

April already?

Hello Holy Hill Family,

It may look like its been a while since I posted but actually I sent a few news items that did not post for some reason..go figure. Hopefully, this update will.

2008 has been phenonmenal!

In January, I participated with the Intercessory Team at the Reclaiming 7 Mountains Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, January 24 - 26. God moved in a big way.

In February, I spent two-days at North Greenville University in Greenville, SC for a film screening and speaking engagement. Over 300 students and faculty attended the Screening of "Mattie, Johnny and Smooth White Stones: Part III" on Feb. 12, and I was the Chapel Speaker the following morning, Feb. 13. I delivered a message entitled, "The Role of Christianity in the Underground Railroad Movement" to an audience of 2,000 +. It was a blessing sharing at the campus and I received many warm words of appreciation and accolades. God is good!

In March, I traveled back to the beautiful Barbados for the third time! This time I was invited to share Co-Hosting duties at the 7th Annual Flame Awards with legendary Gospel Icon, Dr. Bobby Jones. The 7th Annual Flame Awards took place on Saturday, March 8. An audience of over 1,000 beautiful people celebrated the great talents of Gospel soloists and groups, and dance ministries during the 3 hour ceremony. Praise Academy of Dance won Artiste of the Year. It was a blessing to Co-Host the event with Dr. Jones and Celebrate the Arts for Jesus with my Bajan friends!

And now 'tis Spring!
As you can see, this year is off to a great start for Holy Hill Productions. We are currently in post-production for our first documentary film, "This Far By Faith: Barbados Centenarians." Stay tunned..

filmmaking with other panelists at the International Black Docufest. For more information contact:
