Minister Maria Augustine, Director - Prayer Ministry / Chief Intercessor

The start of a journey is an important thing, but not the most important - how you finish is. Over 35 years ago, at an old fashion meeting,  I surrendered my life to the Lord.  What a journey it has been.  It has been one of trials overcome by triumph, pain and then solace, lack but in return God gave me abundant provision, sickness but now enjoying perfect health.

His grace has always been and is sufficient and that which was needful but not received was because I did not ask.  That was out of ignorance.  Now I am older and wiser and my future is brighter. In fact, it is as bright as the promises of God.  

At Garden of Grace Ministries, I count it a privilege to serve as Chief Intercessor - a role I esteem highly. The burdens of the Garden have become mine and I will not rest until Father's will is manifested. It is a daunting task, but like Jehoshaphat I will declare "Father my eyes are on you". It is not by might or power but by the Spirit of the Lord. 

Three of my greatest blessings are my children - Diana (very congenial and my angel on earth), Kathleen (my soldier - very opinionated) and Kenisha (my artist - creative and bubbly).

At the Garden, I consider it both a privilege and pleasure to serve. Ministry is fulfilling.
