1 Cor. 4:15, For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet ye have not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the Gospel.
TODAY WE WANT TO HONOR OUR SPIRITUAL MOTHER, MY PASTOR, WHO WENT HOME TO BE WITH JESUS!
Friday, April 4, 2014 we are celebrating the life of a GREAT WOMAN OF GOD, Pastor Mary Louise Edlin.
I remember the first time I met her. I was getting ordained into a denomination and it was simply….boring, so I left and went to Faith Temple in Brighton New York to see a few friends who worked on staff. I was introduced to the Pastor, Pastor Edlin, a woman! We went to lunch and spent a little time together. I heard the Spirit of God tell me to ask her to be my pastor. She turned it around on me, and asked if she became our pastor, would we yield to her authority even to the place of stepping down if she asked from ministry? I had to think about submitting to authority that much!!! Rhonda and I prayed and felt the peace of God. We told her, YES!
From that day in 1993 till her homecoming, SHE HAS BEEN AN AWESOME PASTOR!!
She corrected me when I was wrong.
She encouraged us when we were struggling.
She prayed for us constantly.
She laughed when I did or said something foolish.
She honored us and believed in the vision that Jesus birthed in our spirit.
SHE TRULY LOVED US!
Today I place honor where honor is due – Pastor Mary Louise Edlin, we will truly miss your love, impartation, laugh, smile, passion, correction, friendship, and partnership in our lives.
YOU HAVE MADE US VERY WEALTHY (no, not money wise, in life)! WE WERE RICH WITH A TRUE MOTHER IN THE FAITH!
Thank you Pastor, enjoy Jesus!
As the Pastor of His Tabernacle Family Church, we as the body want to thank her, Pastor Steve & Darla Edlin, Kim Edlin, and all of Faith Temple for all you have done to propel the vision in Horseheads, New York!
Pastor Edlin – YOUR INVESTMENT WILL NOT BE IN VAIN!
2 Cor. 5:8, We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
