Sandra D. Johnson-Peters

First Lady

First Lady Peters is a helper of mankind. She takes immense pride in her role as the First Lady, attributing all honor to God for blessing her with this position. Having been saved since the age of 13, her deep commitment to God became more pronounced around the age of 16. First Lady Peters' paramount objective is to please God in all her endeavors, with Jesus being the focal point of her joy.

Living a saved life, for First Lady Peters, is not a burden but a testament. With over 30 years as a part of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC), a Pentecostal movement that embraces expressions like dancing, singing, and shouting for God, she is a lively participant when the spirit is high.

Her daily devotion centers around the prayer, "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my God, and my redeemer." Should anyone inquire about First Lady, it's important to convey that she is not only saved and sanctified but resiliently navigating life in every situation.

Welcoming everyone to Wonderful Works Deliverance Center COGIC, First Lady Peters extends an open-door policy. She is here to lend a listening ear, engage in conversation, share laughter, or provide comfort during moments of sorrow. Approach her without hesitation, as beneath her exterior, she is genuinely approachable. Remember, First Lady Peters is just a phone call away, always ready and available. Above all, her love extends to the people of God.
