White Wing Messenger

White Wing Messenger In continuous publication since September 1923, the White Wing Messenger is a monthly magazine that brings readers news and inspiration from Church of God of Prophecy leadership and churches around the world. The official magazine of the Church of God of Prophecy

Operating as usual


"Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee" (Isaiah 60:1). O, Church of God of Prophecy, today is a day to celebrate! It's Arise Shine Day! It's Flag Day! We are a joyful people. How could we not be? The glory of the Lord has risen upon us!

We display the scepter, star, and crown to help us declare boldly to the world that Jesus rules our lives with total power and authority; that He is our bright and morning Star; that He is our king of Kings!

We wave our flag because it is an ensign to “be displayed because of the truth” (Psalm 60:4). Its colors, symbols, and components “all point to our Christ.” People everywhere, come under the banner of love! "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee" (Isaiah 60:1).


"But since we were torn away from you, brothers, for a short time, in person not in heart, we endeavored the more eagerly and with great desire to see you face to face, because we wanted to come to you—again and again—but Satan hindered us. For what is our hope or joy or crown of boasting before our Lord Jesus at his coming? Is it not you? For you are our glory and joy" (1 Thessalonians 2:17–20).

Oh, how we feel this Scripture! It's as if we were torn away from each other by circumstances and sickness and governments. But you were always in our hearts. We have prayed for you and long to see you face to face. And now, there is eager anticipation. Will you come? You are our glory and our joy!


God’s Word encourages us to build our lives wisely.

In Matthew 7:24, 25 (ESV), Jesus says “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.”

On Children’s Day 2022, we invite you to celebrate the children in your congregation and invite them, as well as your entire congregation, to a confident belief in God that produces an UNSHAKEABLE faith that grows, an UNSHAKEABLE hope that endures, and an UNSHAKEABLE love that acts!

Jesus, we thank you for the salvation and healing you accomplished for us on that day. Oh, glorious sacrifice! You make everything good.

Would you like to see something beautiful? This is our very own family in India walking through their community spreading the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. From the crown of their heads to the soles of their feet, they show the beauty of the Lord. Romans 10:15 and Isaiah 52:7 both say of these our brothers and sisters, "How beautiful are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things!


The Office of the General Overseer is pleased to announce that Rev. Dr. Felicia Payano of Houston, Texas will preach the Saturday morning message of the 101st International Assembly in July 2022.

Dr. Payano is a native of San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic (DR). She accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior at the age of 13 and has never turned back. She married her husband, Bishop José A. Payano, at the age of 17 and they were blessed with two children and two grandchildren.

In 1971, they were called to their first pastoral assignment in Consuelo, DR. In 1976, God called them to become the overseers of the Church of God of Prophecy in Honduras, Central America (CA), where they served for 10 years. During that period of time, Dr. Payano served as the national secretary for the women’s ministry and director of the Bible Training Institute in Honduras. In 1981, the General Assembly added the country of Belize, CA, to their responsibilities.

Dr. Payano has also served as interpreter for the International Women’s Ministry under both Sister Elva Howard and later, Sister Cathy Payne. As both a coordinator of women’s ministry and an evangelist, Dr. Payano has travelled broadly throughout Latin America and the United States, sharing the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ. Between 2001 to 2003, they traveled extensively in Italy, establishing the churches in Rome, Alexandria, Brescia, and assisting in the establishment of a mission in Naples.

Professionally, Dr. Payano has served as a certified nurse assistant in New York, as well as a health promotor for the City of Houston. She holds a Doctorate in Ministry in Theological Studies, a Doctorate in Philosophy in Christian Counseling, and a Master of Theology, all from Texas University of Theology in Mount Pleasant, Texas.

She has lived in Houston, Texas since 2008, and is currently co-pastoring the COGOP at Crown Street in Houston along with her husband of 52 years. She also served as the state director of women’s ministry to the Latin churches in Texas from 2008 through 2020.

Dr. Payano’s greatest passion is to serve God and His people, and she continues to work in any capacity the Lord offers her.


Today, the heroic pastors of Ukraine and a few others from around the world met by Zoom with our general presbyter of Europe, CIS, and the Middle East Bishop Clayton Endecott. Each pastor shared testimonies of God's presence being evident during this difficult time in their country.

Bishop Endecott poured out encouragement, heartfelt love, and the Word to these men and women of whom the world is not worthy.

They were told of the hundreds of thousands of you who are praying for them.

No pastor has left the country. They have seen and are believing for miracles. They prayed powerfully for each other.

Please continue to pray. And would you think about giving? These shepherds are feeding and caring for people living in the churches' basements and people who have no electricity and people who are trying to get to safety. Give at Mark it for Ukraine and all of your gift will go to help Ukraine.

Please continue to pray.

Please continue to pray.

Thank you, Church of God of Prophecy family, for your prayers on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and Russia. Below is a communication received today from one of our COGOP sisters in Ukraine. Her identity and location are not revealed for safety reasons.

"It is 6th day of war. No words to express all horrible things we are going through, but there are also so many testimonies and miracles of God's glory. God is faithful!

"Please if you can, stay again this night in prayer for us, our cities, towns, and whole Ukraine. May the enemy be confused, and all his plans will not work in our land.

"Thanks for your prayers. We need you so much. Without God's grace and your prayers we would not go through. We believe God. Victory belongs to Ukraine. THANKS that YOU STILL PRAY for UKRAINE."

Keep praying, Church. God is hearing us. There are additional testimonies of bombs disappearing mid-air, soldiers marching toward a city and turning back, and God's people being bold and courageous. Praise the Lord! We have churches in both countries. Please continue to pray.


From the Office of the General Overseer

Bishop Sam N. Clements has called for the members and friends of the Church of God of Prophecy to find a place to pray or gather in groups to intercede for the people and Church in Ukraine.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We are a people who understand the words Jesus spoke long ago: “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars” (Matthew 24:6). We hear troublesome times have come upon the people of Ukraine. We lift them up to you today.

In John 16:33 you said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” As we watch news reports and hear from our COGOP leaders in the CIS and Ukraine, we ask for your grace and peace to rule hearts and minds. Ukraine is a nation of resilient people who live in a volatile area of the world. Jesus lived in a country similarly plagued by oppression and a ruthless empire. We ask that the people of Ukraine be safe, secure, and that they would know we are lifting them up in prayer day and night.

Proverbs 21:1 says, “The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will.” Please work in the hearts of world leaders and diplomats. Arrest any plans that would endanger lives. Move hearts to peace. For your glory.

We lift up our many brothers and sisters in Ukraine. There are numerous members, pastors, and church leaders who are serving you and their communities. We ask for protection, and that they be able to freely continue serving you and the people around them. We pray that in the face of fear, the COGOP in Ukraine will find opportunities to hold out the Good News of Christ, who offers us perfect peace in a world that offers none. Acts 8:4 tells us, “Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.”

We lift up the members of the military of various nations who have been called to serve. God, they have committed their lives to defend others. Please protect them as your word promises: “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust’” (Psalm 91:1, 2). May their hearts be calm and may you carry them safely back to their homes.

And help the Church of God of Prophecy around the world, Lord, to speak the words in 1Thessalonians 3:10 by faith on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Ukraine: “Night and day we pray earnestly for you, asking God to let us see you again.”

For multiple decades, the staff at the International Offices has prayed over the White Wing Messenger magazines before they are mailed: in the onsite White Wing Publishing House press, in the editor's office, at the printing company across town, powerful prayers for the Church and the readers of the magazine were offered. We have prayed anointed prayers every month, without fail. Many amazing testimonies are the result of God answering our prayers.

Yesterday, after almost two years, IO staff members were allowed to go into the facility where the White Wing Messenger is printed. We anointed the box containing them (notice the oil spots on the cardboard) and laid our hands on the actual magazines as we prayed for healing, restoration, provision, answers, and anointing for those who would receive those magazines. God answers prayer.

A whole day to celebrate LOVE! What a great idea. God is love and he wants us to love one another. If you thought Valentine's Day was only a North American phenomenon, keep reading. While many people think about flowers, chocolate, and heart emojis today, there are other ways, and even other days, that love is celebrated around the world.

In India, gift shops throughout the country brim with red balloons and cards in the days leading up to February 14.

One of the most beautiful Valentine's Day celebrations takes place in France. The first Valentine's Day card is thought to have originated from France in 1415, when Charles, Duke of Orleans, sent love notes to his wife from prison. Between February 12 and 14, the French village of Valentine becomes the epicentre of romance. Beautiful yards, trees, and residences are covered with cards and roses.

The day of love is celebrated on the 14th of each month in South Korea. On May 14, it's “the day of roses”, June 14 is “the day of kisses”. On December 14, it's “the day of hugs”.

To show their love in South Africa, women pin their significant other's names on their sleeves. Men, albeit in small numbers, also follow this custom.

In the Philippines on Valentine's Day, many couples get married in a government-sponsored event. This is a gala event in the country, and one of the most magnificent Valentine's Day celebrations around the world.

February 14 is observed as ‘National Chocolate Day' in Ghana. It's one of the world's top cocoa-producing countries. So, the government decided to dedicate the day to chocolate to boost tourism.

Women in Miao, South West China, prepare a variety of colorful rice dishes to serve to male suitors. The women hide various trinkets inside the rice to communicate a message.

Denmark celebrates Valentine's Day on February 14 in a unique way. Handmade cards with pressed white flowers, called snowdrops, are exchanged between friends and loved ones on this day.

Estonia celebrates love for all on February 14. It's a day known as ‘Sobrapaev'. The day entails celebrating love not just for one's significant other, but also for family and friends.

So it is true: Love makes the world go 'round—all around the world! Your Church of God of Prophecy family loves you! Love one another!

I am doing a research project and I am looking for past issues of the WWM for 2019, 2020, and 2021. I will pay postage.
It's the little Bible reading plan that could....I just noticed that my three-day devotional, "Resting in His Power" based on my White Wing Messenger article, just passed 500,000 subscriptions since I posted it on YouVersion. Wow. Thank you to all of you who have read it and sent kind words. It's a little incredible to think it has reached half a million people. So far.
Feels kinda nice & sweet to have my first article back in the White Wing Messenger since early 2019. “A Blueprint for Being Blessed.” Love my WWM peeps. They’re doing a great job.
I love getting my White Wing Messenger in the mail!

Celebrating Good News with special guest Marsha Robinson, managing editor of the White Wing Messenger.
I know with covid, it takes a while to get things processed and out. I've paid for two subscriptions in the last two years. I have never received a white wing as subscribed. My husband gets his in the prison. But, I don't get mine. I applied to boost the WWM and after taking a very, very long time to get my packet, I got it and the id card had the wrong name on it. I mentioned it months ago and still haven't received anything with my name on it. After I got my packet, they stopped us from going to church due to covid. We're just getting back to it. I think I'll wait on boosting it until things are more dependable. I don't want to add to the work if things are behind. I'm thankful for the WWM. It just doesn't seem a good time to boost until things are a little more ironed out.
Thank you! I got my packet in the mail today. But,the name on my badge reads Renee Lewis. Do I send that back?
We have not received our Jan. white wing- Is there a problem?-- South Fulton Liberty Worship Center.
I just received my first issue and I LOVE IT! Thank you so much for sending me one. I remember my grandmother use to get these in the mail.
How do I watch the video is it already on
