- Faith & Family
Everything was free. The snow crab, fried fish, shrimp, barbecue ribs and chicken, fried turkey, collard greens, pigeon peas and rice, macaroni and cheese and much more. The annual free fish fry held by Razor Sharp Ministries on Feb. 23 had a never ending line that moved quickly.
This same community feeding brought in over 1,000 attendees, last year. After God led Apostle Sylvester Sampson, Jr to start the event five years ago, the church has been having it ever since on the 4th Saturday of February, under the leadership of Sampson, who fries the fish, and Pastor Gordy Sampson Lee. This year, young kids, teens and adults came from all over the community. They talked and danced to live Gospel music as they waited for their food. “We do this for the public; we don’t charge them anything,” Lee said. “All we ask is that the people in the community come out and enjoy themselves. Even though some people ask to give donations. We decline it. We just tell them to come and enjoy.” —Miami Times photos/Malika Wright
