Across the world, the sleeping giants are trying to keep the community afloat. Ever since we met Sandra Massie Hines, we continue to keep up with her hard work within the city of Houston. As The Honorary Mayor of Sunnyside, Community Outreach Service Specialist, and Activist, she contribute a large amount of her time with the community.
Every first Saturday of each month, Metropolitan C.M.E Men’s Ministry does their part. They conduct the “Doing Our Part” Senior, Homeless, And Community Luncheon. Mr. Henry Durley is the President of the Men’s Ministry. He does a pleasant job accommodating the people and that the are fed.
November 10th, Nyte Lyfe Lexx was requested to become Mistress of Ceremony for the Fellowship Meal. With her efforts of gathering young hip hop artists, she insisted that a few come and volunteer with her at the church. She reached out to several artists. Houston Artist BG Kenny Lou and The Lyrical Angel JR were the only ones to be present. Kenny bought a few friends with him including Artist Ghost Magneto. They came introduced themselves as well as announced they were going to feed the homeless afterwards. We were thrilled to hear these guys are going to use their time to give back in the community.

Kenny Lou and Ghost were collaborating at this time with their music. They were steady in the studio planning the next move.
November 27, was when these young men passed away. They were both killed in Houston in a club parking lot. This became one of the most hurtful deaths to happen in Houston this year.
All over the news and the internet, media portrayed these young men as gang members, and Gang affiliation. This deterred search of the killers, as the media gives us a negative narrative of these young men.
This had Sandra Hines upset. The fact that these men were in her church home wanting to do positive things. The police and media may not be aware of their right doings. Sandra makes sure of that by sharing their story all over social media.
The Honorable Al Green, Member Of Congress presented both Kenny and Ghost flags flown over The United States Capitol. They were the same flags given to Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. The deepest condolences were extended from the Men’s Ministry as well.
In today’s generation, we suffer with having a wide range to outlets to give back in the community. We will continue bringing awareness to resources our people need in Houston.
We give special thanks to Metro Ministry To Men, The Metropolitan CME Church Family, JR Achievers and Sunnyside Silver Hair Seniors Group Inc, MOSS Committee , Connie Ford (Russell & Smith Ford), Angelia Reese, Dori Wolfe,and Efrem Jernigan, FNM $hoota, and Vision4Productions.
