Modern Day March on Washington
“If you believe God is a restorer make some noise,” Terence Lester instructed the crowd during Praise in the Park, a gospel music showcase in Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, GA on August 8. Typically, Lester is still, quiet and modest but on this day, he was fueled by passion.
“Preach,” someone from the crowd screeched as Lester shared the vision he says God has placed on his heart to care for those living in poverty.
In 2013 Terence Lester and his wife Cecilia Lester founded Love Beyond Walls, an Atlanta based non-profit organization focused on exposing the realities of the often invisible, by sharing their stories and experiences to increase awareness.
The Lesters were at Praise in the Park to accept a $2,000 donation from Nissan South, a local car dealership, in support of his biggest endeavor to date – the August 20 #MAP16 (March Against Poverty) from Atlanta, GA to Washington, D.C.
