It was a prayer of Adoration and Reverence to God. Sierra Leoneans from all walks of lives were called upon by the Association of Sierra Leonean Organizations in Texas (ASLOT) to take a step back and pray for everything that they possess including wealth, health, status, intellectual abilities and for the lives of the people of Sierra Leone.
They prayed for God’s goodness and mercy even in the midst of trials.
The interfaith/thanksgiving service program featured, Pastors in the community, Imams, and Sheiks. The Lead Pastor and Chief Imam stepped on to the elevated platform at Nirvana event center in Dallas, admonishing Sierra Leoneans in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and Muslim spiritual songs, with thankfulness to God.
The interfaith Prayers/Thanksgiving service is a shared voice calling on Almighty God for forgiveness which the Association of Sierra Leone Organizations in Texas (ASLOT) has adapted to be an annual event for the entire community. It is widely supported by the community in the metropolitan area of Dallas Fort Worth Texas. As part of its objectives, ASLOT believes that it is one way in which Sierra Leonean members of different religions, ethnic groups, organizations, and clubs can easily come together to enhance mutual understanding and promote unity for the common good.
The program continued with an award ceremony to recognize organizations for excellent community service. The community awards initiative is an effort by ASLOT to acknowledge and thank individuals as well as organizations for their contributions to the community and for their humanitarian assistance back home.
