When I have visited the Bartow Church in recent months, I have noted that Wanda is truly loved by all of the people there. They didn't want to see her leave even after working there for that many years. They weren't tired of her, but greatly loved her and admired her.
Wanda has approached her work as a ministry to the Lord. She has done so many different types of ministry and she has done it all with a zeal and passion to honor Christ.
She has worked for four different pastors. I asked her who she thought the best pastor was, and I could tell by her big smile who that person was---ME! Sorry.... Larry, Mike, and Tommy. And she thinks I am the best looking too!
I sent her a text message on Monday congratulating her on 27 years of service and wrote, "I made a great decision 27 years ago when I hired you and an even better decision to marry you...."
Congratulations, Wanda, I am very proud of you.
