Good News - March 2023

One “fun fact” that is always fun forme to share, is that I have10brothers and sisters. I come from a family of 11 children, (all biological) seven boys and four girls. I was #10. I know for sure it is Jesus andmy Family that have instilled inme somany values of who I am today. I always knew the love of my parents and my older brothers and sisters, and I pray I am giving back to children today what has been given to me… UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Coach Rick Andreassen, Founder and President, SAINTS Homeschool P.E. and SAINTS International Sports Ministry My fun fact is that I played collegiate football and tennis in the same year at Rutgers. Romney C. Rogers, Managing Partner, Rogers Morris & Ziegler LLP I played college Basketball at FAMU, and I have a unique collection of African American porcelain dolls. Rosalind Osgood, State Senator, District 32 I am the only New Testament scholar to have ever appeared as an act on Nickelodeon. I have escaped from a straight-jacket while hanging upside down over an alligator pit. I have performed on the same stage as Houdini (not the same night). Samuel Lamerson, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Biblical Studies, Knox Theological Seminary Afun fact that somemay be surprised to learn about me is that I have an identical twin brother. We are about 35 minutes apart but look almost exactly alike. He is the one who brought me to the church that I serve in many years ago, and we have the opportunity to serve together now at church. We have always had a great relationship, yet there are times it gets me in trouble when people confuse us for one another, and he doesn’t say hi to them. God has carried on the legacy by allowing me to have twins that are a double blessing. Steve Daigle, Campus Pastor, Calvary Chapel Parkland Even though I sound and have the traits of a New Yorker, I was blessed that my Momwas from the Upper Peninsula Michigan, and I spent every summer there as a kid… so under it all I’m a Midwesterner at heart! Steve Solomon, Area Director, CBMC South Florida I have had countless people ask me where my name came from. Interestingly, I am not quite sure. My dad says he named me after a woman he met while working as a store manager. My mom says she put two names together and came up with Tewannah. My middle name is Leticia. My mom named me after Letitia Baldridge, Jacqueline Kennedy’s social secretary and chief of staff. So, I give them both the credit. They were pretty creative if you ask me!! Tewannah Aman, Executive Director, Broward County Right to Life I was born on September 10th, 1957, in Havana, Cuba. My mother, Elena Guardiola, was pregnant with me when her water broke and her older sister, Bertha Godoy, was with her. They called my mom's OBGYN and could not get a hold of him. He was at a baseball game. They raced off to the hospital, but lo and behold, it was myAunt Bertha who delivered me... The doctor arrived after I arrived. Extra innings... For the next 45 years in Puerto Rico, myAunt Bertha worked as a mid-wife, delivering countless babies while teaching dozens of ladies how to deliver babies, including abortion-minded ladies who were fighting with themselves to deliver or to abort. Thank you mom and Tia Bertha for the "Gift of Life," which I protect at all costs and at all times with every fiber in my body. Protect the Unborn!!
