Sharon Wellington Sister With A Purpose Award!

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

In November 2012, God called one of our spiritual heroes, Sharon Wellington, home. She posted daily to our Facebook wall, left blog comments during our 30/31 Day journeys, and often swapped each message we posted on her own personal wall. She was a faithful servant who loved God and others! 

Sharon was a contributor and encourager to many. After her passing, her Facebook page was full of thoughtful comments from people she had never met but had encouraged through phone calls, emails, text messages, social networks, or mailing cards. 

Do you know someone like that? Are you someone like that? Someone who loves unconditionally, serves without expecting anything in return, and is faithful to the Lord? 

Sharon will forever be missed! She taught us not to take life for granted and to never be ashamed of the gospel! We love her and to honor her memory, S.W.A.P. Ministries has decided to grant an annual 
Sharon Wellington Sister With A Purpose Award!
