Senator Barack Obama Visits First Emanuel

March 26, 2008

Our city has many special needs unique to our area.  At First Emanuel Baptist Church, we are “a church with vision, and have faith that acts.” We are taking the challenge to do our best to meet those needs.  On Sunday, August, 26, 2007, we were joined by Presidential hopeful, Sen. Barack Obama. 

Democrat Barack Obama said Sunday the country cannot fail New Orleans again and that as president, he would keep the city in mind every day.  



 It was truly refreshing to hear that someone else has the interest of God’s people.  Sen. Obama seems to be sincere in having compassion for the people of New Orleans. His speech was about having empathy for one another, something this country only shows towards other countries.
