|Let the memory of Dr. Joseph be with us forever|
"Today, I remember my brother, Dr. Joseph Jennings. This week I was reviewing newspaper articles and TV clips reporting his effort in helping Action Wyoming's community effort to curb community and gang violence in suburban Wyoming of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He invested 3 weeks over a period of 1 year speaking to 1000's of students, working in community events, the police department and speaking to churches to help change many lives for the better. May your memory live forever, brother. My life is forever changed and blessed because of you."
"Dr.Jennings, I am sure you have invited Mayor Carol Sheets to your party. Also invite my mother Mildred Turner, whom you never met, but prayed for you everyday when you were serving in Wyoming Michigan with her youngest son - me. Know that your influence and methods are employed by many here on earth as we continue to reach out to rescue youth in today's society."
"Dr. J is alive and well in Omaha, NE through his R.A.W. D.A.W.G.S. Youth Corps Gang Prevention Program at Compassion In Action. You would be proud of us Dr. "J" and our boys are learning how to stand as powerful individuals created by God to do great things in this world. My grandson, Commander Lucas Mickles is leading them as the Lord leads him. I know you see and I know your blessing is upon us. See you when I see you and thanks so much for choosing Compassion In Action to embrace your dream. peace"
"You always lit up lives! You are a real brother to the Bishop, so much alike! We love you and look forward to seeing you again someday! We miss you!"
"Dr. Joseph Jennings was the greatest assembly speaker I have ever meet and used. He could reach youth like no other. He became like a brother to me. As I go today, like many days, on appointments in communities working on ways to reach youth, I always remember Joseph. To beautiful Lindsay and the children - my love, prayers and peace to you on this day and everyday as you walk with Our Saviour as your strength."
"Words cannot express my love and appreciation for JJ. he marked my life with his REAL APPROACH to ministry. He even took me to get my first pedicure!!! Told me "real men do their feet"!!! I'll never forget ALL the REAL & personal time you took out for me JOSEPH. Your the real deal and no longer a prisoner of the American Dream! You living the dream now BIG DADDY!!! I love you sir, always have & always will,"
"I met Dr. J in 1992 when I went on a inner-city ministry trip with him and a team of incredible Christians. I was one of the only white members of the team and was treated like family. I was around 21 at the time. I got to spend many hours with Joseph and learn about the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. It changed MY LIFE. More than anything else, I learned how to BE TOUGH when life throws you blows, and that a REAL MAN stands for Christ and stands for his family! Most importantly, I learned to NEVER quit. I read his book "Prisoner of the American Dream" and passed it on to a few other young men in the struggle. That was many years ago (21) and MANY of life's blows later and I am still keeping the faith. I went from an under-educated fatherless young man with little respect for authority to a thriving man of faith with a great family and living a greatly blessed life! I went to look up Joseph to send him a "Thank You" and was sad to see he has gone ahead. Looks like I will have to thank you on the other side! Brother Jennings - you impacted my life and your work still lives through me!"
"Compassion In Action in Omaha NE, is continuing Dr. "j"'s legacy through His RAW DAWGS Youth Corps Gang Prevention Program, just as he directed me before he went to be with the Lord. I so miss you and thank God for your vision for CIA Inc. in Omaha, NE"
"I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE BEEN GONE A YEAR----MAY GOD BLESS THE FAMILY AND CONTINUE TO KEEP YOU ALL STRONG----FOREVER YOU WILL BE MISSED !!!!"
"I ONLY MET YOU ONCE---BUT I NEVER FORGOT YOU---YOU WERE A LOINSHEART FOR REAL---YET SO GENTLE---YOU HAD A HEART FOR THE PEOPLE---YOU TOUCHED MY LIFE FOREVER---YOU ARE DEARLY MISSED !!!!"
"He touched my life and blessed me with his. His testimony gave me strength to carry on. He will be missed."
"Dr. J will live long and strong in the hearts of the people in Omaha, NE where he allowed us to establish his R.A.W. D.A.W.G.S. Youth Corp Gang Prevention Program. He said we will be an icon for the nation to learn from and as the Lord leads, we will. Thank you Lord for Dr. J! We miss you and will always love you."
"Happy Birthday "SOLDIER" guess you partying with real "Field N----'-" today!!!"
"You will truly be missed Pastor Jennings! You made such an impact on my life and the young adults of Breath of Life Christian Center. We will miss you and thank GOD for your ministry!"
"See you later soldier!
