When Pastor Kearse and her husband moved on to their next assignment in Florida ; that is where GOD used them in ministries all over Orlando and the surrounding areas . There , is where GOD , promoted them to their next earthly level in ministry , where Pastor Kearse received an Honorary Doctorate and her husband became Elder Carroll Kearse . These honors were administered by Apostolic Leader and Pastor , Arleavy Hermany of Johns Island , SC and Pastor Michael and Heather Gardner of Atlanta , GA .
And last , but not least , she is a huge advocate for God ’ s people in Africa , Haiti and Israel . As a former pastor , Rev . Dr . Kearse has seen and experienced first-hand , the perils of living in a Third World Country . In West Africa she witnessed a mother and newborn child living on a stone pavement with a light bulb to keep them warm ; an old mother , with no legs , just a bare ground to sleep on . Also , very sadly , she met a family of five , with all their belongings living in a 5 by 10 ft . space , no bigger than a closet and they were still holding on to hope . She is SOLD OUT to MISSIONS for GOD ’ s Beloved people . After that experience in 2006 , her goal was to make aware , as many people and leaders as possible , the dire need of financial assistance for medical care and education for our brothers and sisters across the waters . Even today , she and her husband still practice this good will towards men in all places , especially here in the states . In conclusion she says , “ May the Holy Spirit of GOD stir our hearts and minds to do what Christ has taught us .” And lastly , letting the Word of God speak for itself , Romans 10:15 b says , “ as it is written , How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of Peace , and bring good tidings of good things ”! That is the Word of GOD … let ’ s welcome the Woman of GOD , Rev . Dr . Sandra A . Kearse .
