    I remember Mrs. Caeser coming to Grambling state years ago and that sermon moved me so! Youcouldn't help but know the HOLY SPIRIT was in that place and we need you once again for future generations. To hear the word in such truth and a profound way. Thank you for all the messages; whether it be song or sermon. You touch ; even your presence is a gift of annointance.
