Linda comes from a loving, Christian family and is active in her local church in their Seniors Group. She has been a member of that church for the last 48 years and has served in various rolls starting in their College-Career group, graduating to their Singles Ministry and eventually joining the Pacesetters (Seniors) group. The Homeless Ministry at her church keeps her busy helping to sort and hand out clothes to those in need. She is single and still has strong ties to her family which is spread from Texas to Oregon and Washington State. Linda enjoys working for a Christian organization. It has been a blessing having people uplifting each other with prayer support and getting to know workers from all over the world.
