Mangham pastor leads prayer in Congress

Pastor Bill Nash of Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church in Mangham was the guest Pastor and opened the US House of Representatives in Prayer Sept. 26.
The Prayer was carried by C-Span. Nash was invited by Congressman Ralph Abraham of Alto. He is also an Honorary Chaplain to the Louisiana Legislature and serves as a Chaplain for Sheriff Gilley and the Richland Sheriff’s Department.
The youth of the Church held fund raisers for the Washington trip as well as generous donations throughout the community.
The five days of adventure included Congressman Abraham’s staff giving a guided tour of the US Capital and a tour of the White House as well. Rev. Nash and the group also visited Ford’s Theater where Abraham Lincoln was shot, the boarding house where he died, and the Smithsonian.
An invited visit with former US Senator J. Bennett Johnston was also a delight. In the visit in Speaker Paul Ryan’s office, Abraham expressed how delighted he was to host his first Prayer Pastor in the Congress.
