Nominate a J-Educator Who Promotes Diversity

Beginning in 1990, the Association of Opinion Journalists, formerly the National Conference of Editorial Writers, annually granted a Barry Bingham Sr. Fellowship — actually an award — “in recognition of an educator’s outstanding efforts to encourage minority students in the field of journalism.”

AOJ merged in 2016 into the American Society of News Editors, which as the News Leaders Association is continuing the Bingham award tradition.

Since 2000, the recipient has been awarded an honorarium of $1,000 to be used to “further work in progress or begin a new project.”

April 11,2020 Contact: Rocky Twyman at 301-768-1076 CITIZENS GIVE ONLINE EASTER SALUTE TO GOV. HOGAN FOR PANDEMIC WORK/CALLS FOR DAILY VIGILS IN CAPITAL AND WHITE HOUSE TO JOIN EASTER CRUSADE (0ur representatives would love to speak with you about this daily vigil project we are kicking off on Easter or Resurrection Sunday. It is our pray that all 50 states and The White House and other states will join this Easter Resurrection of Life Crusade pic.twitter.com/JL6nqxQuaz ) People’s Easter Salute to Governor Larry Hogan Happy Easter Governor Hogan! God has truly anointed you to resurrect our state that has been crushed by this pandemic. On behalf of the many prayer warriors in Maryland, we thank you for the Palm Sunday Statewide Moment of Prayer. However, the number of deaths in our great state is increasing everyday. Governor, we need God now more than ever. Therefore, I and other prayer warriors urge you on Resurrection Easter Sunday to immediately implement a 5 minute noon day vigil from the state house that would feature Maryland faith leaders with pep talks; outstanding musical artists and health tips on strengthening our immune systems. The Pray at the Pump (PAPM) prayer group is willing to organize this lifeline of hope on a daily basis until victory is achieved. We believe that prayer + social distancing and following health principles are the keys to victory over this deadly virus. We also encourage Marylanders to fast. Fasting and prayer are two spiritual weapons that can move the hand of God. During these dark times, PAPM we encourage all Marylanders to Read the The Privilege of Pray chapter in Steps to Christ online free and New York Times best seller Fasting by Dr. Jentezen Franklin to survive this pandemic.! God bless you as you and your staff continue to resurrect life during this season. Prayer + Fasting + Social Distancing + Health Tips on Strengthening Our Immune System = Easter Resurrection Victory Over The Coronavirus Pandemic
April 4, 2020 Contact: Rocky Twyman at 301-768-1076 FIVE SIMPLE WAYS THAT TRUMP COULD END THE US CORONAVIRUS CURSE ON AMERICA . With one expert predicting that a million people in America could perish, these tips have never been more important. 1. Follow example of Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland and hold a WHITE HOUSE Palm Sunday social distance face time prayer vigil for the nation with faith leaders from all religions including Muslims participating! 2. Trump must Publicly Confess to the World that God and not Trump is in Control and has the power to deliver America from this curse. Trump must Boldly and Publicly Thank God for His continual blessings bestowed on the USA. We Encourage Trump to review the life of King Jehoshaphat in the Bible which he believes. 3. Hold daily face time social distance prayer Vigil with Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell, Pence, McCarthy and other Congressional leaders. 4. Open up Daily Press Briefings with Prayer. Prayer is the answer to every problem in life. It will calm the hostile spirits that sometime prevail at this gathering. Journalists need prayer also. Leaders of various religions should offer short prayers of hope before the daily life or death press conferences transpire. 5. Encourage Entire Nation to Not only Pray but Fast at least once a week. These two powerful spiritual weapons can move the heart and hand of God to use His power to end the corona virus curse that Satan has placed on the US and the world. The Pray at the Pump Movement (PAPM) advises the public to read Key to Limitless Chapter in Happiness Digest by 20th century religious liberty author Ellen White online free of charge and Fasting a New York Times best seller by Dr. Jentezen Franklin. Both books document the power of the spiritual weapons of prayer and fasting! HUMAN EFFORTS HAVE FAILED! WE BEED TO CALL ON A HIGHER BEING NOW! Because of the urgency of this crisis, we humbly ask you to call or email the White House about the need to pray and fast. The number of the comment Line is 202-456-1111. You can also go to the website www.whitehouse.gov/contact to comment. Rocky Twyman, Founder Pray at the Pump Movement
As Salt Lake City prepares to go on lockdown tonight, I'd like to report the crime of mass infecting Utah's populace. Except SLCPD Chief Brown, Salt Lake's Mayor Erin Mendenhall and Utah's state leaders are complicit. The City of COVID19 presents... Jesus is coming for a lot of those in Utah because "President" Russell M. Nelson is bringing back 19,800 potential virus-carrying missionaries, from overseas, on #plagueplanes without testing or quarantining them first, in place, overseas. Utah's MormonCorp government has clearly green-lighted this process despite every testing and quarantine measure in place, which every one of your families is under criminal penalty to obey. - source 3 Isn't it nice to know your true value in "his" plan, citizens? Your lives are not worth those of God's chosen disciples recalled from the mission field! No wonder its called a harvest! 1. Russell M. Nelson recalls 19,800 missionaries. https://www.deseret.com/faith/2020/3/24/21192373/coronavirus-covid19-testing-mormon-church-parking-lots-lds-utah? 2. https://ksltv.com/433761/1600-missionaries-return-home-from-philippines-amid-corona 3. https://www.ksl.com/article/46735228/salt-lake-city-mayor-says-stay-at-home-order-will-be-issued-for-city-if-statewide-order-isnt-enacted
March 17,2020 Contact: Rocky Twyman at 301-768-1076 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18, 2020: CITIZENS PICKET WHITE HOUSE: CALLING ON TRUMP TO PUBLICLY REPENT OF HIS SINS TO PERSUADE GOD TO END CORONA PANDEMIC IN USA (Citizens call for this Saturday and Sunday to be declared as National Days of Repentance for Trump and the USA. Please announce on your websites and upcoming news shows. Public is cordially invited from 12:30 to 2:30 on north side of White House. This is the cure for ending this pandemic. President Trump: URGENT CALL FOR TRUMP TO PUBLICLY REPENT OF SINS TO PERSUADE GOD TO END PANDEMIC NOW! - Sign the Petition! chng.it/SVhmnSJZ via @Change) The country is filled with confusion. The state of America during this crisis is eeringly reminiscent of the seven plagues God allowed to come upon Egypt during the reign of Pharoah who hardened his heart against God. God could not be pleased with the constant lies coming out of the mouth of President Trump. His racist and vitriolic rhetoric goes against all principles of love in the Bible. He and his evangelical leaders and supporters have made a MOCKERY OF CHRISTIANITY AND THE DEATH OF CHRIST DURING THIS GLORIOUS EASTER SEASON! Some of our signs will read: President Trump, we Need A National Day of Repentance Now or God Has Allowed This Virus Pandemic to Wake Up President Trump and Cabinet. We will form prayer groups at social distancing with people from all over the world still visiting the north side of The White House in spite of the epidemic scare We believe that in order to regain favor with God that Trump must drop his pride and immediately apologize to the country and world for his ungodly actions that are destroying this great country. This must be done immediately. We also recommend that this Saturday and Sunday of this week be declared a National Days of fasting and praying. We think that Trump’s failure to publicly repent will only put this country in greater jeopardy. Trump’s behavior is making God angrier. Pharoah’s repentance lifted the curses against Egypt. God is using drastic measures like this pandemic to get the attention of Trump and his evangelical leaders like Franklin Graham, Robert Jeffres; Paula White Cain; Kenneth Cooeland and many more who are daily promoting this Trump hypocrisy. JUDGMENT DAY IS COMING. These leaders should use their clout to encourage President Trump to PUBLICLY REPENT AND GIVE GOD A REASON TO END THE CORANOVIRUS PANDEMIC IN AMERICA NOW. We will also sponsor a large homemade card requesting Trump Repent of his blasphemy against God Now. By signing you agree to pray without ceasing that God will touch his heart to acknowledge the grave sins he has committed that have resulted in this corona virus tragedy. This seems to be the only way God could get his attention. The Pray at the Pump Movement asks Trump and the entire nation to read the Repentance Chapter in Steps to Christ by 20th century religious liberty author Ellen White to understand this spiritual concept. We pray that God will not have to take more drastic measures to have Trump and his followers denounce their ungodly actions as we celebrate Easter. We will conclude with the singing of We Shall Overcome. everyone to readof Repentance
Subject: Rocky: SUNDAY-11:30 AM TO 1 PM-91 YEAR OLD VA PASTOR HOLDS URGENT VIGIL FOR GOD’S PROTECTION FROM DEADLY CORONA VIRUS March 14, 2020 Contact: Rocky Twyman at 301-768-1076 SUNDAY, NARCH 15-11:30 AM TO 1 PM-91 YEAR OLD VA PASTOR HOLDS URGENT VIGIL FOR GOD’S PROTECTION FROM DEADLY CORONA VIRUS (Latest count showed that Virginia had the highest amount of confirmed coronavirus cases. 75 to 100 attendees. St. John’s Baptist, 1905 Columbia Pike, Arlington, Virginia. Pastor moves around like he is 40 years old.) At a revival service this past Thursday, 91 years young dynamic Dr. John Nicholas boldly stated that the country needed to pray to God if it wanted to end the corona virus pandemic. President Trump seems to have heard his cry and has declared March 15, Sunday as a national day of prayer. There will be jubilant singing and shouting as some 100 members and friends call on God to protect Virginia and the world from the deadly scourge of this pandemic. Prayers and songs of hope will be rendered throughout the service. Dr. Nicholas will talk about the healing power of prayer in his brief sermon. Service will conclude with members gathered around the altar praying for the pandemic to end. Representatives of the Pray at the Pump Movement (PAPM) will be there promoting A Book of Prayers for God’s Protection from The Coronavirus. By signing, the public agrees to pray without ceasing for God’s protection and healing.However, many who believe in Prayer say that the deep divisions of our country call for not just one, but 30 days of prayer and fasting. These are the two spiritual forces used by Israel in the Bible when they were attacked by enemies. They furthermore encourage all especially Trump’s cabinet to read Fasting, a New York Times best seller by Dr. Jentezen Franklin and Happiness Digest by religious liberty author Ellen White on line free of charge. Both volumes document the power of prayer and fasting during times of crisis. The group wants those who are discouraged to call their co-sponsored 24/7 prayer line of hope at 18053082350 password 1001844#.
