A letter from Donald Candys, Jr.

Dear Church family,

Thank you for your countless prayers while on this journey I have embarked on to get my degree. Thank you for your prayers of protection & prayers to keep me steadfast. I guess the older you get in this life you understand what really matters, such as God, family, the simple things in life. It feels strange being back in college at 33 years old but the knowledge to help the young adults to not make the same mistakes I did is what drives me. Every day I wake I am thankful for the opportunity to accomplish my goal. With one semester down, I have achieved a 3.69 GPA.

I am extremely proud of myself because of the hard work, dedication, & fight I have shown against everything thrown at me, to make me fold, but with Faith, my trust in The Most high, there is no storm I cannot overcome. Please continue to pray for me as I continue to pray for everyone as well. I will continue to press on to get to my goal of graduating from college. As in the words of the legendary Kobe Bean Bryant, “Job not finished yet”. So, more work is to be done. I love you all. I hope everyone had wonderful Holiday, &I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. Hope to see you soon. God bless.

Peace & blessings to you all,
Donald R. Candys Jr.
Celebrate Black History!
Regeneration: Black Cinema 1898–1971 is open now at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures and offers the public a chance to learn more about how Black performers and filmmakers have helped define cinema in the United States. The exhibition explores the achievements and challenges of both independent production and the studio system, from cinema’s infancy in the 1890s through the height of the civil rights movement. Regeneration features rarely seen excerpts of films restored by the Academy Film Archive, as well as other narrative films and documentaries; newsreels and home movies; photographs; scripts; drawings; costumes; equipment; posters; and historical materials, such as entrance tickets, note cards, and telegrams; along with augmented reality experiences (AR) designed specifically for the exhibition.

"The Biden-Harris Administration launched a new nationwide Test to Treat initiative in March to give individuals an important way to quickly access free lifesaving treatment for COVID-19. Through this program, people are able to get tested and – if they are positive and treatments are appropriate for them – receive a prescription from a health care provider (either on-site or through telehealth), and have their prescription filled all at one location. These “One-Stop Test to Treat” sites are available at thousands of locations nationwide, including pharmacy-based clinics, federally-funded health centers, long-term care facilities, and community-based sites. In May, the program was expanded to include federally-supported Test to Treat sites. People can continue to be tested and treated by their own health care providers, health​ care clinics in their community, and telehealth providers who can appropriately prescribe the oral antivirals to locations where the medicines are distributed."
COVID-19 At-Home Test Kits are back!

You can now order another round of free rapid COVID-19 test kits through the government, www.covidtests.gov. A total of 4 test kits can be ordered per household.
