Chambers Memorial Baptist Church
"Before we renovate the community we must renovate the people"



SIster Takyra's Testimony:  July 2017

When I truly think about the goodness of the Lord and where He has bought me from, I can't help but be grateful and thankful! I came through these doors at my end, depressed and suicidal ready to throw the towel in. No longer having hope but feeling hopeless. Crying every day and every night because I was on earth feeling like I was living in hell. My life was spinning out of control and I didn't have anyone to turn to. All I wanted to do was be locked up in my room depressed. Isolated from everyone.

Chambers is where I got my breakthrough! What gave me comfort to know that it wasn't the end but the beginning of something greater. It was here in Chambers that depression no longer had me bound. No longer had me hating my life, wishing that every day would be my last. What's so amazing about it all is that it happened before I even knew it. I never even realized that the Lord had taken it from me until I noticed I was being happy all the time. Not being used to the feeling of joy, the feeling of peace, I wanted to go back to isolation. I wanted to go back to my comfort zone. I will never forget when I was going through something and I went home in my room like I normally would to be depressed and I just couldn't do it. No matter how hard I tried to be sad, I tried to be upset, it just couldn't happen. It was at that moment I knew that God had blessed me.

That depression was truly gone. That he had taken me from a place which I learned was called lonely bar and brought me into a place of fruition. I'm forever grateful for my God, my Bishop and my First Lady. They have truly been my strength through hard times. Helping me to gain power over all the things the devil tried to use to destroy me. For years I was trying everything I could to bring me and my son back together. No longer him living in Brooklyn and me in Manhattan but us living together. My Bishop was right there praying with me and praying for me. Telling me not to worry, God would make a way. That we would be together again and this time for good. He never stopped praying and I never stopped believing and before I knew it, my prayers were answered and he was home with me. It's so amazing how God has truly blessed me in every area of my life, taking me from a place of confusion and darkness and bringing me into the light. Bringing me into my purpose. I would've never been able to overcome any of the battles I've overcame if it wasn't for this anointed place, my Bishop and my First Lady.

I thank you Bishop for opening your arms to me, taking a broken girl like me and giving her life again. I thank you for all the encouraging words that mold me to be the woman of God I am today. I will forever remember what Chambers has done for me and will forever be a witness to the Lord's goodness. As my Evangelist would say, all glory be to God and my Bishop teachings.
