BRANTLEY, Ala(BNc) — Ruth Robinson, mother of Garland M. Robinson, is visiting in south Alabama this week. Garland is preaching in a gospel meeting at the Sasser Church of Christ near Brantley, Ala.
“Oh, I go with him everywhere he goes. If he flies, he gets me a ticket, and I go with him wherever he preaches. I enjoy it,” the small 87-year-old mother said about traveling with her son.
When asked if it wasn’t too late for her to be out at 9:00 p.m., she said, “Oh, I don’t have any set time to go to bed. I just enjoy going and being with him.”
Not only is Ruth Robinson making beautiful memories for her son, but she is setting a powerful example for the rest of us. May God bless her with many more years of good health and service in the kingdom.
As a teenage girl, I prayed to marry a preacher. God answered my prayer. Douglas and I will be married 56 years on December 18. He has been preaching the gospel since before we were married. We have two children and two grandchildren all of whom are faithful members of the church. God is so good. I love Him so.
