“What’s Faith Got to Do with It” author pays courtesy call on Min. Ferguson.

MOPI NEWS: On the eve of Emancipation Day, Tuesday, July 31, 2018, the Honourable Annette Ferguson, Minister within the Ministry of Public Infrastructure was presented with a copy of “What’s Faith Got to Do with It?” by young Guyanese author, Feigel Niles.

The book features the first twenty-seven years of Niles’ life chronicling her personal experience and practical lessons learnt that make a truly inspirational and motivating narrative.

Feigel Olive Niles hails from the mining town of Linden, Region 10 and has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Family and Consumer Science and a Minor in Health from Andrews University, Berrien Springs Michigan, USA via the University of the Southern Caribbean, Trinidad.

Niles served in various positions, most recently as the Principal of the Agape Educational Institute in Port Kaituma. Today the author is also a motivational speaker and CEO and Founder of the Feigel Niles Foundation which will soon be launched.

Minister Ferguson congratulated Niles on her achievement and thanked her for the copy of the novel which the first-time author signed.

What’s Faith Got to Do with It was published in the United States of America. Since Niles returned to Guyana almost two months ago, she has met and presented a number of the copies of her book to mayors, politicians, members of the private sectors.

She also presented President David Granger with a signed copy when he met with the Linden Youth Leaders (LYL) and its regional chapters over a week ago at State House.

What’s Faith Got to Do with It can be found on Amazon or you can contact Feigel Niles via her Facebook page for your copy.

The question is what the next book will be based on? We will just have to wait and see…
