7 QUALITIES OF MY MOTHER MRS. RUTH VASU
BY PASTOR STANLEY VASU
My mother has always lived a simple life both in her clothing and her living standard. She got a job in the Reserve Bank of India before she was married. She sacrificed her job to marry my father and serve the Lord in the ministry. She could have retired as an important Bank officer. But she considered serving the Lord as more valuable and honourable.
My mother has lived a sanctified and holy life. She was spoken of as a pure dove in her youth. She has urged her children to live a holy life always.
My mother has lived a life of prayer and supplication. Her prayers have protected our lives so far. Her intercessions have upheld the ministry and the members of the church.
My mother has served the Lord for nearly 40 years in the ministry. She was always hard working and laboured with her husband to build up the ministry which had churches , orphan homes, schools and bible college and correspondence courses , music tapes , conventions , seminars etc. She continues to be a great help in the ministry.
My mother has faced much suffering her life especially for the past 14 years after the demise of her husband. She has faced dangers, uncertainities , slanders, threats, abuse etc. But she has always bore them patiently without bitterness or malice.
My mother has demonstrated the great strength of her faith during the past 60 years. Inspite of all that she has faced in her life and ministry she has kept her faith in God strong.
My mother always has a smile for everyone. She even welcomes those who have mistreated her with a sweet smile. She has set an example for everyone to follow. We are blessed to have her as our mother. Although the Lord has taken our father, we are grateful that He has given us our mother who is such a blessing to us.
