Submitted by The Pastoral Team – House of Prayer for All Nations
Since 2016, House of Prayer for All Nations church has been honoring members of the Montreal Community who have made recognizable contributions to the community and the lives of others.
The award presentations have taken place during their annual fundraiser banquet, a catered dinner and concert as a means to give back to the community they serve in ministry.
Since its début, the church has offered awards for community Excellence and for community Impact.
Former honorees include, Lorna Joseph (BAFAWI), Kingsley Kwateng Amaning (Mama Africa), Egbert Gaye (Community Contact), Barlette Scrubb and Osborne Allen.
This year they are going to be celebrating and acknowledging the years of service and commitment of Pastor Jasmine Eastmond.
Pastor Jasmine is known to be a vibrant, joy-filled, woman of faith. Even as she advances in years, she still takes great pleasure running and skipping and praising the Lord, always proclaiming that Jesus is the Rock on which she stands.
This woman of God is courageous and full of love and compassion for everyone. She is truly a proverbs 31 type of woman. For when she opens her mouth, wisdom is heard and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She is passionate and prophetic.
Proverbs 31:10 “who can find a virtuous woman, for her price is far above rubies?”
The Eastmond family and the House of Prayer for all Nations church family have been blessed with such a priceless treasure, and her name is Jasmine Eastmond.
She is always down to earth and able to relate to people of all ages; this mother, grandmother and pastor’s best kept commitment, is in intercession. She is always praying and asking God to help those around her, both in and out of the church.
House of prayer for all Nations will be honouring “their” mother of Zion and prayer warrior at their annual banquet on November 10, 2018.
When her husband, Ralph, was alive, his heart did safely trust in her. Naturally speaking, she is a beloved mother to her children Anne, Ian, Jennifer and her beloved Janice; and grandmother to their children, but she is also a mother to many sons and daughters in the faith.
She is a woman of Impact not only in Canada but in England, in the United States of America and in her lovely country of Barbados, where her mother had taught her to have faith in God. All these years, she has kept the faith and even now in her golden years, she is on fire for her God who has proved to be so faithful to her through it all.
The Lord has put an immense value on the life of this faithful woman of faith. Her price is far above rubies, diamonds, silver, gold, and other precious stones.
A woman like her who fears the Lord and lives for him with reverence and integrity must be praised.
Proverbs 31:28 & 31 tells us that the children of a virtuous and noble woman call her blessed and that she must be honoured for all her hands have done.
This year we are calling her blessed.
This year, we are praising God for her life, her love and her commitment in serving God and never backing out of the race of faith.
We want pastor Jasmine Eastmond to know that we appreciate her with all our hearts.
Please, come and show your support to this wonderful woman of God and join us on November 10th in honoring this sweet, caring and inspirational woman of faith and strength.
