"ALL day and ALL night, ANGELS are watching over the Outland and Wiggins Families"
"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever." (Psalm 23)
During the early evening hours of February 7, 2023, Mother Laura Lee Outland Wiggins, the family prayer warrior, answered the call and received her new address in Heaven.
"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her.." (Proverbs 31:25-28)
She was the daughter of the late Joe Outland, Sr. and Louvenia Walton Outland. She was the fifth child of seventeen siblings. She was preceded in death by her husband Thomas Wiggins Sr., son- Thomas Wiggins Jr.; grandson- Adrian Thomas Owens; four great-grand children Serenity Wiggins, Chasity Wiggins and Baby Brothers; three sisters; Ethel Outland, Minnie Mozell, and Winfield Outland; and eight brothers; Nathaniel Sr., Leslie, David, John Henry, Robert, Willie, Raymond and Charlie Outland.
"Hallelujah, Salvation and glory, Honor and power
To the Lord, our God, For the Lord, our God is mighty, The Lord, our God is omnipotent
The Lord, our God, He is wonderful..." (Revelation 19:1)
