Who Are the L.A.M.P.S.?
Special People Who Helped Us Get To Where We Are.
The L.A.M.P.S. Library is a very special place. It was established to honor some very special people who assisted Pastor and Dr. Freeman to get where they are today.
In July 2017, Pastor Freeman, while conducting a pastoral meeting, fell dead and was dead for over 24 minutes. Two people who were appointed for just that moment and who were acting on behalf of God Almighty breathed the breath of life into him. They performed life-saving CPR against all odds and refused to stop until paramedics arrived.
Jerry Lovett and Marcia McDonald are two of the L.A.M.P.S. whose lights shone brightly on a hot summer day in Raleigh, North Carolina. That day, July 18, 2017, isn’t a day that Pastor Freeman remembers well, but he knows that it was a pivotal moment in his life. It was the day that God and His power became real to him like never before, and it was a day that he became a living example of God’s resurrection power.

In July 2015, a brave young man, Timothy Adams, II, drowned just before starting his Freshman year at Western Carolina University. Although Dr. Freeman knew Tim somewhat, she never expected to see him in dreams and visions and to hear him encouraging her to keep going. Tim became Dr. Freeman’s “witness in the heavenly places” as she battled a life-threatening illness. He, running alongside Caleb and Joshua of the Old Testament, helped Dr. Freeman to brave her physical adversities.
In addition to Tim, L.A.M.P.S. Library honors two women who taught Dr. Freeman so much about love, life, and womanhood–late her mother and sister. Both of these vibrant women died way too young, but they both left enduring legacies. Dr. Freeman honors these beautiful socialites who are adding to the joy and liveliness of Heaven!
Another very special lamp is none other than Pastor Freeman’s own mother, the late Augusta “Susie” Freeman, who was affectionally called “Mrs. Susie.” She was the true definition of a mother–someone who loved her children and who did the best that she could to fill her home with joy and love. She is also honored as the “S” in L.A.M.P.S.
