The Ministry of S.A.R.A.H. (serenity*atonement*restoration & healing)
+ The Ministry of S.A.R.A.H. (SERENITY*ATONEMENT*RESTORATION & HEALING ) is a prophetic evangelistic ministry for all of Godís people, the saved and those yet to be born again! Non-denominational because in Heaven there will be no distinctions made among the saints of God. Therefore, this is a ministry without walls and barriers. It is a guide to living with confidence in Jesus Christ and will lead you to become a victorious Christian with God. It has been designed for women who are hurting- tired of hurting others, tired of hurting themselves and most of all tired of hurting God. Yet, this ministry is for anyone who wants the Gospel truth! I am a member of The Mount Moriah Baptist Church located in McGregor, Georgia where Bishop A. Tim Chatman is our Senior Pastor . This church is a part of Kingdom Manifestation Ministries and Global Impact Ministries.
My experience in religious studies began at an early age in the Roman Catholic faith over 43 years ago. Since then I have become an avid student of Godís Word and have studied many religions to acquire an understanding to the best of my ability. I accepted my call into the ministry in 1999. I have not always been saved and can witness to the perils of living in the world against Godís will. I am a survivor of many trials and tribulations. Therefore God has used me in many areas of ministry.
I was educated primarily in Chicago, Illinois where I majored in college in Journalism and Business Administration at Malcolm X College and The University of Illinois. I also have extensive training in the areas of sales management and customer relations. I have an Honorary Degree of Associate of Divinity from The Universal Ministries School of Theology. I am a charter & certified student of the Michael Guido School of Evangelism and was taught by Dr. Guido himself.
My childern are: Mr. Harold Juantonio Foster, Sr. and Ms. Serenity Angelique Foster-Day. I have 4 biological grandchildren who are Harold Demond Foster, Christopher DeSean Day,Harold Juantonio Foster, Jr.and Harolonzia Juantoria Foster. My great-granddaughter is Caniya Leighlianna Day. and great-grandson Amir DeSean Williams-Day Other grandsons are Dustin & Denarious .

Nothing that I would like share at this time! LOL
What my parents think of my sermons
My mother, who is my only surviving parent, is pleased with my delivery. She has become more involved with my church relations over the past years which makes me very happy to have her support, plus her encouragement.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...
If you live an honorable and decent life, God will reward you with everything you need, but if you are deceitful and disrespectful, then you will be punished. No doubt about it! The appointed time is now for us all to repent, seek forgiveness and to seek salvation. God is waiting on both you and me to take His Word into the highways and the byways and share the Good News that JESUS IS COMING BACK AGAIN, SO GET READY, NOW!
What I want on my tombstone
IT DIDNíT MATTER WHAT KIND OF HOUSE SHE LIVED IN, CAR SHE DROVE OR MONEY IN THE BANK- WHAT MATTERED IS THAT SHE COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF ONE CHILD BY HOW SHE LIVED FOR GOD!
