It was Pastor Caesar’s humble beginnings and her mother’s encouraging words that have influenced her decision to give so selflessly of herself. She says, “Mom often made it very clear to me that the people were depending on me and she said, “I am depending on you and God is depending on you”. Don’t let us down. Don’t you ever go out and sing one thing and live something else”. That stayed with me not because Momma said it but because when you get the greater One who is The Lord Jesus in your life then He makes a difference. Just the very fact that Momma would always say that to me made a great impact upon my life”.
