"Glory Be To God!
My God! Shout Fest 2014 was the ultimate! I want to firstly thank God for giving us comfort and favor. As we always do, we pray regularly and diligently for Divine guidance! God never disappoint! This year's Shout Fest was the ultimate! As it has done each year in the past, the crowd increased!
There was something extra special about this year's Shout Fest! The Spirit of the Lord was in full bloom and the Glory of God was evident!
I want to thank the entire Staff @ WAAW for job well done! I thank God for each and all of the truly Anointed Artists and musicians, locally and Nationally, for blessing Aiken with their ministries! Most people "sing" and some people "SING!" Some people "minister" and some people "MINISTER!" Every Artist and Group, SANG and MINISTERED to the glory of God!
I am thankful to the many volunteers (Angels) for their availability and service. Thankful for the City of Aiken for their partnership and support and It's Better Live Entertainment for exemplary sound works! Thanks to all vendors, advertisers and sponsors! On a special note, Thanks to Bell Grove youth and adults for coming out in full force to help your Pastor!
Thanks to Gwen, my wife for the decorations of the Pastors Fellowship and Artists Tents and favors. Thanks to Memorable Affairs and UC Cafe for the awesome food! Thanks to Rev. GL Brightharp for the Media Tent. Thanks to Dumpster Depot, Portable Services, William Murrill and All Start Rents. Thanks to all the community service and non-profit organizations for being resources of knowledge, awareness and understanding! Thanks to all! If it be God's will, we will seek to do it again next year! Now it's time to get busy in our communities! Time to get out the vote!
Rev. Lester A. Smalls"
