Well done thy good and faithful servant!

We here at Grace and Truth Leadership want to take this time to honor the life of one of the greatest leaders to influence my life, message, and leadership. My Aunt/Bishop Michel White

Please remember my family, and especially “I call him my little Cousin” her Son the incredible Steven White Supe.

Cousins Anita White, Diamond White, Tarrence Taylor, my Uncles Apostle Robert Girtman, Deacon William Girtman, My Aunt/Bishop Marva A Baldwin!

My Beloved Aunt/ Bishop Michel White has been set free from the sickness, struggles, and sorrows of this life as of August 4, 2020, at 8AM.

She has been promoted to be with the Lord! The Lord’s perfect will has been done in her life.

She’s been an amazing Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, Friend, a General, a Leader, and a Mentor to my family and the Kingdom of God!

It hurts me deeply to know that I’ll never be able to wrap my arms around this amazing Aunt/Servant leader of God again in this life.

When I accepted the call to preach the gospel, she believed in me and put me to work serving God and God’s people.

She trusted me and I trusted her beyond words just by us looking into each other’s eyes we were connected through family and spiritually.

It also hurts me to know she will not be asking me to preach for her again, I always was uplifted during these conversations and special moments.

We had our own relationship which she had the sagacity and emotional Intelligence to do with all in our family even all the children, and her church family she loved with all her heart!

My comfort in this surreal hour is knowing that God’s people don’t die; they merely fall asleep. Rest now Aunt Michel in the Presence of the Lord!

We will all remember her melodious singing voice and transformational preaching. But even more profound was her amazing loving heart for God and God’s people.

“Hey, family we will see her again in the morning”.
