AWOE PROFILES: KINSHIP

Name: Jacqueline Vazquez (Jackie)

Age: 37... I think God has a sense of humor, calling a 37 year old, mother of 2, to front a band... What can I say? Iím being obedient...

Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

Instrument: Vocals & Guitar (me and my 3 chords ROCK!!!) Overused Phrase: ďThatís Insane!Ē

Cereal: Rice Krispies with Bananas Influences: Martha Munizzi, Chris Tomlin, and Jeremy Camp (just to name a few)

Favorite Scripture: Daniel 3:17-18

WDJD: So much.... About 9 years ago my husband and I decided to divorce. My son was about 2 years old at the time. It was amicable. We just felt that we werenít happy together and would be better off apart. At the time neither of us were going to church. Shortly thereafter, we were invited to a small church in Brooklyn. The music was too loud, the preaching offended me, and I didnít understand a lot of what was going on, but God spoke to me. What my marriage was missing was God. I kept coming back. At first with my son and then as the years passed with my husband. We will be celebrating our 16th Wedding Anniversary next year and we now have 2 beautiful children, Daniel age 11 and Gracie age 5. We never speak of divorce... NEVER!!!! So, what did Jesus do? He saved my marriage...

Must see movie: West Side Story

Cereal: Captain Crunch

Favorite scripture: 1 Corinthians 10:13

WDJD: At the age of 18, I was a drug dealer addicted to cocaine, completely out of control. At the very young age of 27, my heart stopped! That didn't stop me from getting high thou gh. One night I got so high I cried out to God for help. I took my crack pipe to a church and put it on the altar and asked God to take it away and He did.



Name: Nancy Essence Agosto

Age: 15


Hometown: Brooklyn, NY

Instrument: Drums

Overused phrase: Wooooooow!

Must see movie: Transformers

Cereal: Fruity Pebbles

Favorite Scripture: 1 Timothy 4:12

WDJD: Growing up as a little kid wasn't easy. But as I got older, my mom and I started finding our way to church somehow. I got saved and the age of 9, didnít commit my life until I was 11. For some reason, God chose to bless me with the ability to play all the instruments in church. Iím 15 now and as I go thru hardships, I try to praise God in any way that I can to become the young woman in God that Iím supposed to be. Eí Nuff said..
Name: Melissa Pavia

Age: 28 (I never reveal my age but Jackie yelled at me!!!)

Hometown: Far Rockaway, New York

Instrument: Vocals & Keyboard

Overused Phrase: "Punk!" Can I say that in a Christian magazine?

Must see movie: Yikes! I Canít Decide! Ummm.... Goonies, Back to the Future, Muppets Take Manhattan...

Cereal: Tough one but Iím gonna have to go with Captain Crunch...

Influences: Yolanda Adams, Martha Munizzi, Jim Cymbala

Favorite Scripture: Romans 8:5

Most memorable concert experience: Revelation Generation 2006. It was an outdoor concert on a farm in New Jersey and it was pouring rain so we were slipping and sliding all over the place we ended up being covered in mud. There was no music because it got rained out but it was really fun!

WDJD: I was raised in the church but walked away over 10 years ago. A little less than two years ago I met Jackie and shortly thereafter found my way back to God. It has not been easy but God has confirmed to me over and over again that if I trust in Him, He is faithful. The life I was living just 2 years ago is so different from the life I lead now, that the person I used to be is almost unrecognizable. He continues to open and sometimes shut doors for me and I continue to seek him.

What did Jesus do? He gave me a new beginning in my life and a new song in my heart.
