all rolled into one describes the person that was
Vada Lesteen Ander.
Mrs. Andler shared the love of Jesus with the people of Bay Harbor/Millville from the early 1960s until she joined her Savior in 2009 Many lives were touched and changed through her ministry and a community was transformed.
Like the apostle Paul, Mrs. Ander "fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith." And "Now there is in store for her the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to her on that day -- and not only to her but also to all who have longed for His appearing." (2 Timothy 4:7-8) On that day we we will hear Him say to her "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
