    I am so sad to hear of Sister Sybil’s passing, but rejoicing for her. She and Sisters Kathleen and Imogene were so wonderful to our family when we attended Bethel Assembly of God together. She was a constant prayer warrior for my nephew Sam.

    Ms Sybil was a great PRAYER WARRIOR!!! When we were at Bethel AG, we were on the Evangelism Committee. When we went out on visitation, she did the praying and I did the talking. She continued being one of my greatestt Prayer Warriors when I visited the Prisons. Would always stop by her place in Jacksonville and give her the results of her prayers. Will surely miss her here on this earth, but am rejoicing that I will see her again. Asking God to surround all her family and friends with His love, and give them comfort and peace. ❤️❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
