A Peacemaker, not a Peacekeeper

By Dr. Sherry Jones — Jesus said “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.” (Matt. 5:9). We were stationed to pray in four different areas where 4 or more murders have happen. We were there and police presence was noticeable. We met with street captains and a young minister who has been a peacemaker for several years, in a community called Kensington. We sat near a lot that has been turned into a safe haven for the children; filled with vegetables, fruit trees, and three chickens.  We prayed with gatekeepers, neighbors, and a peacemaker. Please note this was a peacemaker not a peacekeeper. He and his family live in the neighborhood and fight for all who live there. His work is evident, as he prayed for healing, laying on hands as he prayed. Just a note; peacemakers are people of great faith and faithfulness. Pray for Kensington, please.
