    Greetings & Good Morning! How are you all?

    The Eetiyopiyan government needs to take responsibility for what is happening to the Eetiyopiyans in the country that forces them to migrate to other countries & nations for work & survival, financially & otherwise!

    The Eetiyopiyan government now must also stand up for their citizens outside the country that are being oppressed, disrespected, brutalized, raped, demoralized, humiliated, destroyed, & denied their free mind being, independence & liberty!

    And we who all believe in & stand for Truth, Justice, Righteousness, & Mercy must by any & all means necessary come together in Unity, Faith, Love, Peace, Tolerance, & Goodwill!

    For “When Afreekan Righteous People Unite Then The World Will Unite” & “Afreeka Awaits Her Creators”! ( And it most definitely is not the Orientals nor Asians )!

    Our Eetiyopiyan Afreekan Black & Brown Peoples of the Lord God Almighty’s Righteous World without end: Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up; we been sleeping too long & still asleep; while the enemy continually taking & stealing everything from us!

    Know thyself & ourselves, as the True Living Temple of the One Most High God, Creator of the Heavens & Earth!

    Peace, Blessings, & Salutations be to thee all!!! May the Love & Joy of the Hola Trinity be with us all throughout this Hola Resurrection Celebration! And may our Anointed & Divine Head Master Ruler & Saviour send down the Grace of the Hola Spirit upon us all of Goodwill!

    Amien & Amien! Halieluyah, Amien!
