She went to church every day. She prayed her prayers over and over and over again. She worked in the soup kitchen every Tuesday night. She volunteered for many committee positions at her church.

I am getting older, and I don’t know where I will be after I die!” How special it was indeed when her friend pulled the New Testament from her purse and explained the plan of salvation.
