July 7, 2015 – Washington D.C. – Bishop Joel Peebles, Sr. and Pastor Ylawnda Peebles are humbled and grateful by the recent ruling by the Superior Court of the District of Columbia which reinstates the original Board of Trustees, including Bishop Joel Peebles, Sr., to the Jericho City of Praise in Landover, Maryland. The ruling invalidates all actions of the improperly seated board.
We give thanks to God and move in His love, as we work through this transitional period. In preparation for the final steps of this process, we will carry out the mandate God has for our Ministry, by continuing to operate for the meantime within our current schedule of worship services. At the God ordained time, Bishop Joel Peebles will make the announcement of when and how we will move to the next phase of this restoration.
As it is written in Romans 8:28, “We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.”
“Hello Church Lady,Today July 7, 2015 a District of Columbia Superior Court Judge who heard all of the evidence during our trial held on June 8-10th 2015 made a decision in our favor. We will send you the information so you can provide the truth to your audience. We the People Of Praise MD want to thank you for your belief and support in our cause during the past years of our struggle. You stood by us even though it looked as though the odds were stacked against us. You believed us when we said that this was a hostile takeover attempt which was confirmed by Judge Nash’s ruling. There are other articles out there right now making false and inaccurate assessments of the decision. Resist the urge write something quickly just to remain in the game.”
