It was near P.S. 26, I think on Andrews Ave. not sure anymore. There was a private house and on the
porch was a big lit cross and a lit star of David. I was curious...I was probably about nine or ten.
I knocked on the door... A man came to the door...he was black...he invited me in...it was so
exciting for me...it was a Pentecostal type church with tambourines and lots of jumping and talking
probably in tongues. I was out of place but it didn't bother me. I just loved it and I came back a
few more times...not for the religion but for the movement, the energy and the warm welcome I
received. I never told my family...it wouldn't have been kosher!!
Then one day he asked me to be baptized....that was my last visit!!!
