This little lady Flossie was a General in God’s army. She walk many hospital and nursing home halls praying over people and leading them to knowing and accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior. When Flossie decided on her own that she shouldn’t be driving anymore, God provided a driver. I had the privilege of of filling that void for her. She and her friend Emilene ministered in Senior Village nursing home. These two elderly ladies walked those halls with their walkers every Tuesday praying over residents and leading them into accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior until they decided they couldn’t walk those halls anymore. Then began praying for any and everyone at home. Again I had the privilege of praying with her at her home. Flossie accepted Jesus as her Savior many years ago. She knew that going to church or belonging to any demonination would not get you into heaven. So she made it her mission to to follow Romans 10:9 &10 and get people to confess with their mouth and believe with their hearts that Jesus was the one and only way to eternal salvation and entrance into heaven. This little General is now with her Lord and was able to hear her Lord say “Well done good and faithful servant.” That is music to her ears! I will miss her dearly but so happy for her reaching her goal. We had lots of adventures and lots of laughs together. Thank You Lord for letting me be a small part of her mission.
