Thank you that would be great! I will let Dr. Campbell know that you are interested in helping. I am sure he will be extremely pleased...

Here is a portion of what we do pertaining to the Youth Explosion. It maybe lengthy but it's a wealth of information. I sent a brief post over to the Courier Index Newspaper on late Friday Evening. I haven't gotten a response back from them, yet...Once you read it, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to let me know...
If you need the guidebook on it please let me know..

The Youth Explosion is a 3 or 4 day "Event." If possible, it can also be a 5 day event. It can be as large as we would like for it to be based on getting the churches, communities, schools, counties, cities, and most of all the families involved. Whatever it takes to keep/get our young people off the streets and give them hope for the future. If God did it for us He can do it for them. I have enough faith to believe that He will...

Here are the categories:

1. Day 1: Starts with a "Youth Explosion Concert" on that Friday Night....The Choir consists of 100 voices in their Youth Explosion T-shirts with the Logo on them, as well as the sponsors on the back of the shirts. We will bring in top singers to support...

2. Day 2: Saturday from 12 Noon - 4PM the Community Fare/Fair in the park. We will petition those that have expertise's such as: vendors that will have give-aways for our children, the police dept. as well as, the fire dept. are there to do presentations, jumpers, clowns, our Mayors and Government Officials should be able to help and present. We will give away school supplies, shoes, back packs, clothing, etc. We will also, petitions groups to come in and sing songs, praise dancers and steppers will go forth. The food items are: Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, cookies, punch, etc.,,,There will be plenty of prizes for our children. Sometimes we give away bikes. It depends on what the companies/stores are willing to donate. This day is the key of bringing love to the whole city!!! The preparation brings in great excitement because everyone is now involved! No one is exempt from getting involved in the Youth Explosion. Every church from the north, east, south and west should be involved....Every child belongs to God and it is our responsibility to be great "Role Models" for our youth.

3. Day 3: Is when the Youth Explosion Services actually, begins. There is a Youth Explosion Praise Team that opens up the Service. We utilize as many children as possible each night allowing them to use their gift and talent. It is definitely a spiritual event...Every night we give away money by asking the children questions from age of 5 to 25. We usually stop at the college age because we know children do not have funds. This brings excitement, as well! Hopefully, we will be able to give away Youth Explosion scholarships funds....

4. Day 4: The Civil Day is when all our politicians will do a short presentation and present Pastor Terrell Fletcher with the Key to the City, as well as a Proclamation identifying that day is "The Eastern Arkansas Youth Explosion Day." Afterward, we resume with the Service...

5. Day 5: We give recognitions to the young people that help bring the event together, as well all the committees. The more young people we get involved the greater hope it will bring to them for the future. They must know that they can succeed in every aspect of their lives...

It depends on the City to conclude it on Day 4 or 5....

Hopefully, we will be able have Workshops/Seminars for the young people in the daytime. Pastor Fletcher likes to visits the Teen - Homeless Shelters, the Juvenile Facilities and Foster Homes to encourage them. We like to provide clothing for the Teen - Homeless Shelters...Hopefully; we will be able to visit the Jude Hospital for Children. I believe it's in Memphis, TN. We pray that someone would be able to set that up for us....

In Conclusion: I failed to tell you that Pastor Terrell Fletcher is married to my First Lady, Sheree Flecther whom is the ex-wife to the Actor Will Smith that is married to Jade Pinkett-Smith at the present....First Lady has a heart for the children and we all work together to make these events a success. We cannot do it along. "It takes a village to raise a child" and that village is us, these days.

Let me know if you would like one of my books. I will send it to you. Hopefully, one day I will be able to have a Book-Signing in my hometown. Please pray with me about it...

God bless and you are in my prayers....

JoAnne Smith-Hooks
