Writer’s Corner Artist of the Month (5/16)

DCL Ministries is proud to highlight lyricist Tey Yaniis as our Writer/Artist for the month of May. Tey Yaniis born in Dallas, Texas and now residing in California has worked very hard and  his new album titled “The Soul Jones Collection” which dropped on April 27, 2016 is a result of that hard work. The Soul Jones Collection can be purchased at all locations that sell music so be sure to pick up a copy of this wonderful album. Tey Yaniis is an inspiration to all that have a burning desire to see their dreams come true, for all things are possible through God. In scripture I am reminded of the Lord replying to Habakkuk, “Write it down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time;it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” This is what we all must do when the Lord places a vision on our hearts. I encourage you to carry it out.

Tey’s charming single titled ” My Coffee Brown” a song that started off as a letter to his, now wife, is shear delight with a beat that makes you want to sit back and enjoy the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Be sure to tune into our weekly radio program called Dovetales where Tey Yaniis  will also be a guest speaker on Sunday, July 17, 2016 2:30-3:30 pm. eastern time. Please join me in  welcoming  DCL Ministries writer/lyricist/poet  for the month of May– Tey Yaniis . Enjoy…
