Dr. Sarita Lyons

Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.  Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.  Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine.  Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you. 1Timothy 4:14-16 Dr. Lyons is the wife of Mark Lyons, a commercial airline pilot for Jet Blue Airways and a retired Lt.
