Q: How did you come to know the Lord?
A: I was brought up in a Christian home. When I was 13, a neighbor of mine talked to me about being a Christian — actually committing my life to God — and that very night, I made a decision to follow Him.

Q: What does ministry demand?
A: Of course, it took very much of our time, but we were glad to do it. We tried to make God the center of our lives, so it never felt like a sacrifice. We tried to support all phases of God’s work and tried to encourage our
membership to stay committed to God.

Q: How has ministry been a blessing over the years?
A: We’ve seen many people come to know the Lord over these years; I feel we’ve been overly blessed with meeting some people who were encouraging to us.

Q: How do you plan to stay involved in ministry in the future?
A: I plan to be involved in all the things I’m able to do. I substitute teach for Sunday School; I’m involved in the ladies’ prayer group; I sing in the choir still.

Q: What difference has Christ made in your life?
A: He’s just made all the difference in the world; even as a teenager, I had a desire to live for Him and to serve Him.
