Pastor Farrish gives Honor to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She would like to thank God for all that He has done for her; most importantly she thank Him just for who He is. She count it an Honor that He allowed her to be the Shepherd at Olive Hill Missionary Baptist Church; she prays that the people will not see her, but see God. She believes that you have to totally trust even when you can’t trace God. One of her favorite sayings is “I love Jesus and He loves me, Why? Because we have a relationship”. She is so thankful for the presence of the Holy Spirit that lives within.
“It is the anointing that makes a difference”
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
