This recording starts out of Fort Valley in Brother Evans house with Dell saying he was called to ministry in 1919, and how young to the ministry he was at that time. Thanks Brother Evans for the Fourth of July dinner. Evans thanks Dell and praises Dell as being a father figure to him and the other preachers. Brother Brown thanks Bishop Dell and says how happy he is to be here. Dell talks about his interest in developing young men into the ministry. Brother Felton talks about brother ship and how important it is. Sister Brown says a prayer for the day. Dell talks about a dream where he was preaching and his son and other sons came home. Audio then cuts to a church service where Dell talks about how adults owe their children everything and instead the adults are ignoring them. He appeals to the congregation to behave and not suffer the wrath of God. He says he does not participate in politics in the church, comparing it to sinning against God. Recording ends in singing.
