No greater woman of God than Sister Biggs!! I will never forget the first time I met the Biggs Family. It was shortly after Rev. Paul Pray went home to be with the Lord and Brother and Sister Biggs became the new Pastors at Bon Secour Assembly of God. A precious family indeed!! This woman could sing!! Even if you couldn't sing, she had a way... a very special way of harmonizing that could make you sound good! If you weren't anointed, that was okay, too!! She walked in such a powerful and unique type anointing that would eventually rub off on you! SHE COULD COOK!! I spent a LOT of time in the parsonage with them on Sunday's after church! It was Sister Biggs who taught me how to fry chicken, make homemade mashed taters and homemade gravy!! This woman was like a Momma to me!! This entire family was always like my own family! Guinette became my best friend and still is to this very day! My heart breaks with each of the family members, because I know what they're going through. My heart also rejoices with them because I know where she is! Guinette, Donald Ray, Ricky, Yvonne, Dorothy... I love each of you with all my heart!! I will continue to hold each of you up in prayer during some of the hardest days ever. Please don't lose faith and follow in the teachings of how your parents raised you! If you have strayed from your calling... please get back to what God has called you to do!! May God carry each of you and comfort you all!! I pray His peace abide in you and that what you're going through will only draw you closer to God and allow Him to draw you closer to one another. You ALL need each other during times such as this!! Prayer, love, blessings and huggles to you all!!
