I met Enid when she returned from Gabon while she was living in Pasadena California. Enid knew a friend of ours, Norman Meeten, whom she met in France at a Bible conference. Norman came to California to speak in our church and invited Enid to join us. That was our first meeting and the beginning of many years of friendship and fellowship in the Lord.
Enid was 40 years older than I, yet she was a true friend and sister in the Lord. Her lively spirit full of praise and thankfulness to the Lord was an inspiration to myself and to many. She loved to tell stories of Africa and what the Lord did while she lived and worked there.
Enid was a living example of a soul who loved God all the days of her life, she exuded joy and praise, and testified to God's faithfulness on a daily basis.
