Linda has been through a tough life. She’s had a difficult marriage, had her children surrender to drugs and her grandchildren taken from her. She has been cast aside to live on the street a few times, enduring more than one winter in a tent.
She is called “Ma” on the street, and she acts like it. She tells people how to behave, and sets people right when they step out of line. But she loves Jesus, and the only reason she would ever miss church is to spend time with her 5 year old granddaughter.
She helps set up and clean up at church every week. When Steve can't be there on Saturdays she is in charge, making sure everything goes smoothly. She is essential for Saturday's meetings.
