Tribute to Senior Pastor Lornie Williams
It is with a great sense of sadness that I learn of the sad loss of our dear Sister Lornie. Please receive our heartfelt condolences. I am so sorry that Sister Olive and I are unable to join you in this celebration of the life of one of God’s faithful witness.
Minister Lornie Williams was a woman known to many, and had many different roles to fill in her life. She was sister, daughter, caregiver, wife, mother, friend, and faithfully served the Church of God of Prophecy here in the UK over many years. Lornie’s love was boundless and her energy unmatched. She was a source of inspiration to more people than she will ever know.
Lornie worked hard, she led a good life, was a strong team player, with the ability to handle the upsets and problems that life presented her.
One cannot think of the church in Acton without mentioning Lornie. I am sure that there is no position in the Church that Lornie has not filled with vigour, dynamism and passion. Lornie was one of the early pioneers to go on mission travelling to far countries to preach the gospel and share her great love and passion for Jesus Christ and humanity.
I will always remember Lornie with great fondness, her smile and laugh was so infectious and genuine. She lightens the room wherever she was. And spoke positively no matter how hard or difficult the situation. A great warrior and gem has been elevated to greater heights and we rest in confidence that she is at peace.
My dear Brother Robert I could see the deep and profound love that you had for each other. You worked so well as a team. You can walk tall that you made one of God’s virtuous women blessed in knowing you. God has seen and recorded her faithfulness in labouring in the kingdom and deemed it fit to call her home to her eternal reward.
The staff at the National Office, and Ministry body joins me in appreciation of a faithful servant who has gone home to be with the Lord. May she rest in Eternal Peace.
