Born the seventh of ten children, I, Vivian S. Bekele, am the daughter of both the late Mr. Andrew James Smith, Sr. and Mrs. Lizzie S. Smith.
A curiosity was activated in me regarding the Rhema word due to the fascination I experienced as a child sitting on the church pew watching the mouth of the preacher preaching. Still intrigued by the spoken word…sounds that can be heard and discerned yet words which cannot be seen, I am left to the pursuit of words through the Logos or the written word. This pursuit resulted in receiving ministerial licenses in 2002, several degrees: two bachelors, one masters and an uncompleted second master’s and law degree.
The pursuit of the written word culminated in the publication of “The Seed of Abba…The Seed of the Woman,” in 2008; and is now followed by the publication of “The Divide: Spirit Rule versus Soul Rule.”
