Amelia Martin Bishop

As a young GA, I met Amelia Martin (Bishop) who was serving as Texas WMU Youth (GA) Leader. I shared with her my "calling and commitment for doing WMU work!" When I mailed my GA Forward Steps to the state office, she returned a part of it with these words:

"If you feel called to be in WMU leadership for GAs, you can do better work than this! Re-work and send it back to me!"

I did. It passed! That was in the 1950's.

Another blessing of life was serving with "Millie" on WMU's Lottie Moon advance team to China in 1987.

I am grateful to women leaders like Millie who have "expected the best" in my life of missions growth through WMU!
