In Loving Memory:  Linda Austin

July 10, 1940 – September 4, 2021

World Missions gives great praise to the Lord for his servant Linda Austin, long-time World Missions Committee member and devoted friend and supporter of the First Pres missionary family. Linda—along with her husband Pete—prayed daily for our missionaries, hosted missionaries in her home, and visited them on their fields of service—offering lifelong friendship and encouragement. Linda’s quiet presence behind the scenes belied her true role as spiritual giant in the effort of world evangelism for the glory of God and the good of mankind. Thank you, dear sister. Well done.
