On November 18, 1982, five sisters-in-Christ from two congregations in Montgomery, Alabama met to organize a city-wide sisters’ benevolence group. In their initial meeting they pledged to put forth efforts to gain membership and support throughout the sisterhood and brotherhood.
These beautiful women were instrumental in organizing programs and activities. For example, they assisted with the annual Youth Rally held in Troy, Alabama, the Benevolent Sisters Annual Holiday Banquet and visiting residents at the Crowne Nursing Home.
When my mother was a resident at the nursing home before her death, these Titus 2 women visited her, took her to activities in the recreation room among other beautiful gestures of love. I am forever grateful and thankful to them for how they cared for her and other residents.
They were instrumental in purchasing supplies for students who were going back to school. They purchased special occasions baskets for senior citizens and provided financial contributions to Southwestern Christian College, Brentwood Children’s Home and others who were in need.
They mailed cards for various occasion offering encouragement, graduating, giving birth, getting married and to those who were sick, as well as acknowledgement and to those who were bereaving. May God continue blessing them and their work for many years.
I was afforded the opportunity to be among these godly women as a member of the Benevolent Sisters. As the youngest one in the group at that time it was my honor to be surrounded with wisdom, genuine love and support. I pray God’s continue blessings in their lives.
