As a faithful member of Miller Swamp, she served as a Sunday School teacher, sang on the gospel choir, worked as a Missionary and became a deaconess serving by her husband’s side. Later she moved her membership to Revelations Ministries, where she was the head of the Deaconess Board.

    Accept my sincere condolences. May you find some comfort in the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: "3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials" Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us if this. Find out more online at JW.ORG
