SCARY--a far-away move, two small children, a new church. Thanks to Gerry, I would find a loving place. She was an inviter and an encourager. Through her, the LWML became my future. She was one of three now deceased LWML women whom God sent to let me see Him through them. Marie was a behind-the-scenes person. The only way you knew what she was doing for the Lord was to “catch” her doing the tasks like cleaning bathrooms or painting walls at church. She had the gifts of helps and service. The third, Florence, was an out-front person. The Lord gifted her with leadership and wisdom. These inspirational women lived their faith and shared Jesus and LWML with me. Is there someone you can touch in this way? Notice, that God used all different types of women to reach me. Step out there and be a mentor to those women in the pew around you. We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ (I Thessalonians 1:2-3).
May the LWML continue to be a conduit for women to follow Jesus and serve Him and His people.
LWML President 1991-1995
