Amazon.com description: Product Description: In her latest, most soulful and side-splitting send-up of church life yet, Pat G'Orge-Walker's hilarious cast of parishioners battle their worst vices, the funny and serious sides of aging, and each other... Mother Sasha Pray Onn and Mother Bea Blister live on the edge--of Christianity, that is, and they're about to knock Sister Betty off her sanctified perch. As the senior citizen matrons of the Ain't Nobody Saved but Us-All Others Goin' to Hell church, their devotion to the Lord must compete with their secret passions for gambling and grudges against each other. But their long-held animosity is about to be complicated when the new pastor, the Reverend Leotis Tom, wants to reorganize the Mothers Board in time for the upcoming Las Vegas Conference and asks a reluctant Sister Betty to run for President.

After a scuffle at a secret Bingo game at the No Hope Now-Mercy Nevah church, the bumbling Reverend Bling Moe Bling pacifies Mothers Blister and Pray Onn by giving them two tickets to Las Vegas where the annual Mothers Board Conference will be held. In Vegas, Mother Blister befriends a destitute young woman named Zipporah who does something no one has ever been able to: touch Mother Blister's heart. But in trying to help her, Mother Blister finds out Zipporah's past might be at complete odds with Mother Blister's present.

As the chaos and comedy get out of hand, so do the questions about who is who, who did what to whom, and where and when. Just as surprising are the answers, which show that despite everyone's best--or worst--intentions, from cradle to grave, it's God who is ultimately in charge.
