When I think of Brother Wiley a huge smile comes across my face. He was a huge influence in my life. He encouraged me, motivated me and most of all believed in me. I remember years ago when I would sit up front at church with my children or alone, he would be playing the piano during praise & worship and when the Holy Spirit was present and there was a call to come down for prayer, I would hesitate and stay right where I was frozen. Without fail, if I made eye contact with Brother Wiley he would nod his head for me to go down for prayer. I would say no with tears streaming down my face and then he would point that long finger at me just like a dad and give me that "look" that I better get down there for prayer. I would go down reluctantly with fear but the LORD would always able to work on me and bring me through whatever trial I was going through. Brother Wiley KNEW where my healing was coming from and pointed me in the right direction...always. The main point is that the enemy was defeated every single time Brother Wiley was around to encourage people to persevere, press on and not give up. If I missed church, he would call and say "and where have you been?" I had no excuses. Sometimes I did but he didn't listen. He would just say "See you at Fresh Start this week and where has your sister been?" I would gladly give him her number so he could give her "the talk" next. I say all this with a smile and fond memories of a man that loved the LORD and spread GOD's love contagiously. No matter where you were in life he loved you like Jesus. Thank you LORD for placing such a wonderful man, his family and Family Worship Center in my path so that my life along with my children's lives would be changed forever.
