She opens her hand to the poor,and reaches out her hands to the needy.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household,
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Proverbs 31: 20, 26-27
Maggie is a saint in our time – a tireless, faith-filled servant of the Word of God. Those of you who knew her, because of your mission visits or generous fund-raising, know that she was special – that Maggie was responding to a call from God. The Rev. Annie Ryder, her mission companion and dear friend for many years, recognized that Maggie was blessed by God for this work. “I have never known anyone who was as faithful in prayer, as certain of God’s will in her life, and as generous with her time as was Maggie. She gave all the credit for her amazing works to the Glory of God.”
We will never forget Maggie’s work for God’s children, the depth of her faith, nor the way we felt in her presence. Today, we join the people of Kumasi as we say, “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all (Proverbs 31:29).”
