Sibyl Williams Chambers
April 17, 2018
Extending belated condolences to the Williams Family at this time and praying for your continuing comfort and strength. I am grateful that the Lord allowed our paths to cross by way of Bethel A.M.E. Church, Andalusia, Alabama. I shall forever remember Overseer Sibyl Williams Chambers for two of her favorite expressions: "Lord help" and "Say that". God bless!
