Saturday Memorial Service for Anne Lindquist

Jim Fretheim of Burnsville, MN, writes: It was my privilege to serve on the Executive Board with Anne. She was a delight to work with! Very bright, a great sense of humor, and most of all a shining example of what it meant to follow Christ. Peace be to her memory!

Karen Hearl of Lincoln, CA, writes: I was sitting next to Anne when she was elected to the Executive Board and she was so happy to accept the challenge. Then I served with her for one year on the Executive Board and appreciated her warmth, wisdom, and commitment to Christ. She truly was a change agent and humble servant of the Lord. We as Covenanters owe her a debt of gratitude and praise to God for her leadership and servanthood. We were blessed by her life and witness.

Phil Ladd of Peoria, IL, writes: I was very glad to discover this news. I have thought highly of Howard and his faith journey since he was on staff at Batavia. I believe that his experience there and other places will help him in this new endeavor. I believe that Howard has the right gifts for this ministry. Newport’s loss will be the East Coast’s gain. I believe God will bless Newport for their willingness to sacrifice their pastor to this new ministry. God bless you Howard. I know that he will.
