Speakers and Worship Leaders
Zamariah Jackson, Chairman
Monique Welsh has been a believer in the Lord Yeshua for about 14 years. She grew up in a charismatic Christian church believing in God and Jesus for as long as she can remember. However, she was not grounded in her faith, and like many do, she began to fall away hard in the ways of the world in her teenage years. Her lifestyle choices kept her in darkness and depression. Her original plan was to party hard until she was ready to settle down then she would eventually get married, start going to church, have children, buy a house with a white picket fence and live happily ever after, but the Lord had other plans. She got pregnant at age 17 and from there the Lord changed her life drastically and forever. She no longer desired to live a crazy life with a baby. She knew that if she was going to be a mother she had to be a great mother and therefore she would have to give up her lifestyle. She struggled with that idea and pondered abortion. However, she had such a strong conviction from the Holy Spirit that she just couldn't do it. G-d used the baby in her womb to bring her to repentance and into the Kingdom of G-d. She remembers the day she literally cried out to Him and said, “If you help me I will have this baby.” From that moment on He has provided for all of her needs, set her free from sins, strongholds, bondage, and healed her spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. "He brought me out of darkness and into His glorious light. I am a living testimony that God's arm is not too short to save, and that He can and will restore the years the locusts have eaten. He has spoken to me many things concerning what it means to be a Godly wife and mother and has called me to be a light to other women in this area. To God be the Glory!" Monique resides in Northern, MD with her husband Lawrence Welsh and their 4 young children.
There is only one bio that is worth telling, and that is the one of Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world. Two thousand years ago, He left the throne room of heaven, came to earth, and gave His life as an atonement for our sins. Today, He lives in the hearts of Sue Samuel and her husband Brian, and loves to worship His Father through them. Sue is blessed to travel around the world, visiting congregations and sharing G-d's message of hope and healing for all of His children. She and her husband visit all congregations, both large and small, knowing that they sing to an audience of One. Their latest album, "Promises", and their previous two albums, "Songs ...From The Secret Place" and "Home Away From Home", are available for purchase on her website at www.suesamuel.com. Sue is Rebbetizin of Congregation Mishkahn David in Rhode Island.
Daniah Greenberg is a spark plug for community activism. She energizes catalytic change wherever she goes. Today she is the president of the Messianic Jewish Family Bible Society (MJFB). She effectively gathered leaders throughout the national Messianic Jewish community to birth a brand new translation of the Holy Scriptures called the Tree of Life Version (TLV). She leads a diverse team of 24 professionals representing Messianic ministries nationwide and affiliates in Israel. “I have a megaphone in my spirit!” “This project is a modern day miracle,” she proclaims. Daniah, a wayward catholic, came to faith after a single visit to the Midtown Bible Baptist Church. Graduating with a degree in communication, she married a “nice Jewish boy,” and electrical engineering graduate named, Mark Greenberg, in 1989. They married and immediately joined Congregation Shema Yisrael under the leadership of Rabbi Jonathan Bernis of Jewish Voice Ministries International. They served in various ministries, teaching and helping and caring for small discipleship groups.
Dalia Cohen Emerson
Dalia Cohen was born and grew up in Haifa Israel. When she was 9 years old she lost her great earthly father(Cohen Joseph). Dalia also served in the military in Israel, performing and teaching Israeli Folk Dance since she was of Kindergarten age. At age 21, Dalia decided to leave Israel and move to the USA searching for the American dream. She was also performing and teaching Israeli Folk Dance in the local Israeli community. Everyone knew Dalia. She got married to an Israeli athiest and after having three children with him, she found out that he was having an affair. That is when the God of Israel started to work on her. God showed her "the real American dream". So 14 years ago, Dalia excepted her Jewish Messiah, Yeshua. The entire Jewish community was in shock and persecuted her. As a result she lost everything she had including her three children.
Her personal relationship with her Jewish Messiah and and the body of believers, helped her to get though those years and now she has remarried a wonderful husband, Paul Emerson and together they live victorious lives in Northern, MD.
