About Me: (Ministry Info, Hobbies, Fav. Music etc.)
Desiree Overton, born in Buffalo, NY is the adopted daughter of the late John H. and Roberta Overton. She is the proud mother of two very special children, James (Alexis) and Danielle along with five beautiful grandchildren and a 6th on the way (Tatiyauna, Izayah, Dariyuana, Iyanah and Jayson).

Desiree's spiritual roots were in the Baptist Church under the pastorate of her paternal grandfather, John G. Overton. She accepted Jesus Christ at an early age and in Feb 1992 she was filled with the Holy Spirit and in July 1992, through a divine visitation, she received the call into ministry. She received her ministerial license in Sept. 2008 from Bishop Troy Anthony Bronner at Elim Christian Fellowship. She has been a member of Elim since 2001 and is grateful to God to be a part of the Elim family and under the prolific teaching of her spiritual father, Bishop Troy A.Bronner.

Throughout the past 17 years, Desiree has been involved in various areas of ministry including, nursery, youth ministry, street evangelism, organization of evangelistic outreaches, intercessory prayer, nursing home, women's bible study facilitation (church and workplace) and US and International missions.

Currently Desiree serves on the Advisory Council and as a facilitator for Mentoring Women, a one year training component for women in leadership. She also serves as Mentor Liaison and Mentor for the Girls to Women (GTW) ministry which helps to equip young ladies to address various life issues.

Desiree acknowledges the prophetic mantle on her life, and the call to preach and teach the Word of God.

Desiree is a worshiper who loves the Lord and is passionate about Him and His creation. Desiree's desire is that people would know the extent of God's love for them, and that they'd be able to fill in the "gap" in their lives; that is understanding what God's good, acceptable and perfect will is for them, and then being equipped to walk it out.

Shalom, My Good Dear Sister! I Love You As My Wonderful HEBREW Sister! In Fact All So Call Black People Are The Hebrew People Of The Holy Bible Read(Genesis 14:13) Here We Fine Abraham Is A Hebrew; And If He Is Your Forefather What Are You?. When You Study The So Call Black People History And Hebrews History It Is The Same; The Names Was Just Change, You Can Make A List Of All The Names We Been Call And Answer To; You Have To Wake Up And Study The Truth About Our Real Name Of The Most High God "YHWH" Which Means YAHWEH; That Was Taking From Us As His People, We Where Cut Off By Yahweh Himself; (Read Gen 15:13, 1kings 9:6-9 Acts 7:6) Really Read And Study What I Am Saying Am Telling The Truth. He Is Wakeing You And I Up To Wake Up Our Love ONES!

Note: Now Yahweh Is Bring You And I Back Onto Himself, Thats Why His Name Is Being Talk About More And More And More! It Will Not Go Away, It Will Only Get Biger And Greater In The Thy Earth. I appreciate you giving me your time to touch on Biblical thoughts and then also to share with you some of my study and research. Moreover, I want to mentioned to you the type of books that would be a must have in considering to formulate your Biblical Library. Moreover, these are some of the books that would cause one to move from a comfort zone, to an intense Biblical High! Praise Yahweh! Now these are some of the books that are recommended:

1. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible
2. King James Hebrew/Greek Key Word Study Bible
3. Inter perter Bible Dictionary(set of 5)
4. Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary of the Bible
5. Webster's Collegiate or Random House Dictionary
6. Synonym Finder by J.I. Rodale
7. Guinness Book of World Records, copyright 1985
8. Jerusalem Bible
As a Note: The Guinness Book of World Records talks about the letters "J' and "V" as being the newest letters added to English Alphabet, which is post Shakespearean 1630. So the letters "J" and "V" are only 379 years old. Also In The Hebrew /Greek There Is No Letter "J" Take These Bible Tools And Look And See; All "J"s Are a "Y" And All "V" Are a "W" In The Hebrew: Praise Yahweh! We Can Do All Things In Yahweh! It Is A Wonderful Time For Us To Be Here This Day! Note: Most Rev, Preachers, Evangelist, Churches, Artists, Ministries, Prophets, Prophetess, Men And Woman Who Say They Have Been Call By The Most High God Yahweh, Don't Even Call Him By His Real Holy Name; And On Top Of That, Those Who Know Want Even Tell Those Who Don't Know, His Real Holy Name Is YHWH Which Is YUD-HAY-WAW-HAY That Saids "YAHWEH". Look It Up: For Yourself "YHWH" And Then Tell The Truth, If You Are From The God Yahweh Of The Hebrews And Bible, Ex 5:3, Ex 9:1, Ex 9:13, When You Know The Truth Tell It And It Will Set You Free! Praise Yahweh! Great Are U! Note: Gather as Many Different Bibles and Dictionaries to HELP Build Your Library. Praise Yahweh!
Blessing! Your Brother Abraham
