Dale Godwin started the first Vacation Bible School (VBS) at Hodgesville Baptist Church, Dothan. “We had no tables and no supplies to do a VBS. We just worked with what we had and did the best we could,” she said. This year, VBS was held at the football stadiums at Rehobeth High School and Cottonwood High School to reach more people in the community.

Q: What was your childhood like?
A: I grew up in a Christian home. I was taken to church.

Q: How did you come to know the  Lord?
A: I came to know the Lord during a revival at my church when I was 13 years old. The pastor was preaching a sermon in Revelation, and I had this fear come over me that I was going to be left behind.

Q: How have you been involved in church through the years?
A: I did everything in the church. I started the first VBS at Hodgesville Baptist Church and was the director for many years. I taught Sunday School for 50 years. I worked with the youth for 50 years. I was the director of WMU (Woman’s Missionary Union) for many years. I sing in the choir.

Q: How do you see yourself involved in church in the future?
A: I will continue to serve the Lord with all that I have. It is my joy. It is my peace. It is my happiness.

Q: What difference has being a Christian made in your life?
A: It has made me more compassionate. It has also made me have a greater love for others.
