On Sunday, April 14, 2019, 4 p.m., the Love and Peace Ministries – Doors of Hope will sponsor the 81th Birthday Celebration for their Executive Director Rev. Lorene Guyse. Lorene became licensed in the ministry March, 1984; she was ordained in December 1984 at the Greater Saint John Baptist Church and served twenty-eight years under the leadership of Rev. C. L. Guyse in Markham, Illinois. She attended Moody Bible Institute for ten years, receiving many degrees, and certificates. She moved to Louisville, MS and married Rev. C. L. Guyse in 2005.

The Love and Peace Ministries – Doors of Hope is a nonprofit charitable organization that was founded by Rev. Lorene Guyse. After many years of community service, the organization received the acknowledgement of city and state officials of Markham, Illinois. With Love & Peace’s success, she was moved to establish the same organization in Louisiana. Love & Peace was organized in the Bienville Parish, serving eight towns. The ministry consisted of many services including home health care. In May, 2005, Lorene opened the Doors of Hope Center in Louisville, MS under the umbrella of Love & Peace Ministries. Its main focus was Prison Ministry. She stated, “Prison Ministry has always been close to my heart. The change that I see in men and women truly has blessed me”. The Doors of Hope Center has provided food, clothing and shelter to many residents of Louisville, MS.

In 2005, 2008 and 2011, Rev. Lorene Guyse was diagnosed, treated and later healed from breast and lung cancer. Her favorite saying is, “I have known for a long time that prayer works. I have a heart that just will not give up. We are marching on.” However, after her bouts with cancer, she has discontinued some of the services that were provided and presently, only food and clothing is being given to seniors of the community. There are currently three branches of the Love & Peace Ministry which are located in Chicago, Illinois, Bienville Parish in Arcadia, Louisiana, and Louisville, Mississippi. On February 26, 2019, The Love and Peace Ministry acknowledged its 22nd Anniversary.

Please come celebrate with Rev. Lorene Guyse at the Holy Ghost Temple Non Denominational, 175 Hill Street, Louisville, MS on Sunday, April 14, 2019, 4 p.m. Special guests: Green County Mass Choir of Eutaw, AL and the Sunshine Boys of Louisville, MS. Dinner will be served in the fellowship hall. For further information, please call 662.831-0283.
