On Saturday, December 2, 2017, Teachable Moments Magazine was delighted to conduct this special interview with a very special mother of our local church. Sister Ruth E. Thornton, aka “Mother Ruthie,” is 91 years old and continues to press her way to church twice a week. She continues her ministries of Vacation Bible School and the Sunday School Christmas Program. The ending of her testimony is: “Pray that my faith will not fail me.” God has been truly faithful to Mother Ruthie.
I was excited to capture her deep wisdom to share with our readers. I am so proud to be a part of her legacy that will last for generations to come. I pray that God will continue to bless and keep her vibrant, as she has so much more to give!
Listen carefully as she shares a message to the children and adults about Spreading the Good News by keeping God’s Word in your heart.
