I met the Nieman's while attending Word of Faith Bible School. Both Charles and Rochelle always demonstrated the love, grace, and class of the Kingdom of God. Rochelle, we will always remember and miss you! Enjoy those gold paved streets of glory!

We prayed for Nieman family that they continued the legacy of Rochelle. For such a time as this God is raising up her kids and grandkids to spread the good news. God bless the Nieman's family as they continued in her legacy.

Although I have been living in Austin for 20 years now, I have awesome memories of attending ALFC when it was a small building and when it was a grand building. My sons attended Agape. I will always remember Pastor Charles prophesying great things for my son, David when we had him dedicated to the Lord. Your strength was amazing.

I had the privilege of attending Alfc in 2011-2012 before moving away from El Paso .I remember when I first saw Rochelle . I remember saying to myself , " I want to be a daughter of Rochelle instead of Sarah in the bible"! She was breathtakingly beautiful, inside and out ! As i write these words i cry in remberence of her. I always loved El Paso because of Alfc . I thank God for the time i was there and count myself so fortunate to have been part of Alfc's church family . My prayers go out to Pastor Charles and the rest of their family. I will never forget Rochelle as long as i live .
