Vale, Deaconess Betsy Ewing

Lisa Polito, President of the DOTAC Region (DIAKONIA of the Americas and Caribbean) has paid tribute to the life of Deaconess Betsy Ewing, United Methodist Deaconess. Betsy died last week at the age of 90. "She was instrumental in the work of DOTAC and DIAKONIA, being DIAKONIA World Federation President in the late 70's and early 80's. I enjoyed visiting with her at Brooks-Howell home in Asheville, NC, USA where she lived her last years".

Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
