HOUSTON – In tough times, faith and family are often the most important things that can help get you through. A true testament to that, The Jones Family Singers never gave up hope after five members of their family contracted COVID-19. Bishop Fred Jones Sr., his daughter Sabrina Freeman and the entire Jones Family shared their story and their music to help inspire others that may be struggling during the pandemic.

“To bring peace to troubled hearts, to let people know that every sickness is not a sentence unto death...We shared the same news with families all over the world,” said Jones.

Four of Jones’ daughters contracted COVID-19 before he tested positive. Slowly, each daughter began to recover and was able to leave the hospital, but Jones remained. Still, he remained hopeful.

“I knew I was going to die one day, but not that day,” said Jones. “We trust in God for all that he promised, that he’d never leave us nor forsake us.”

And soon enough, the entire family rejoiced as he made a full recovery and was able to return home with his loved ones. Now, they want others to know that no matter how harrowing the journey, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

“Our daddy has taught us faith since we were real little, and we trust God,” said Freeman. “Through all our pain and through everything we had went through, this is how we make it.”
