Rev. Anna’s most joyful roles are proud mother of two daughters and one son-in-love; and grandmother to four “jewels” (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Delon II, and Deilyn), who hold her heart. In life and ministry, she relies on one of her favorite passages of scripture, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
