On Sunday, October 23, 2016, the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni brothers visited Bethel A.M.E. Church in Ann Arbor to support Brother Rev. Gerald Caldwell. Bro. Caldwell was the guest preacher and his sermon entitled “One More River to Cross” was uplifting and inspirational. Brother Caldwell recognized the members of the AAYI during his preaching calling most of us by name. It was a good Sunday at Bethel A.M.E.
