At 93, Mountain View Conference Member Still Serves the Lord

Mildred Lee, 93, has been a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church since 1972. She is pictured with Pastor Justin Howard.

Being 93 years old does not slow down Mildred Isabel (Green) Lee, a member of Mountain View Conference’s Point Pleasant (W.Va.) church. Lee is presently serving her church as the Personal Ministries director and loves her church and church family. “Every morning and every night I thank God for giving His Son to die for me. If I didn’t have Jesus, there would be no eternal life,” she says.

Born and raised in the Gallipolis, Ohio-area, Lee faithfully witnessed for the Lord to her family and friends. She grew up attending the local Baptist church, and as an adult she was busily involved in teaching both children and adult Bible study classes. It was during that time that she began to question the truth about Sunday and Saturday worship. Soon the Lord brought the answer right to her door.

In the early 1970s, a Seventh-day Adventist colporteur stopped at her house and Lee happily purchased a green-bound book titled Bible Readings for the Home Circle. The next year, Marty Weber, also a colporteur, knocked on her door. Once Lee saw his books, she could tell that these were Adventist books so she began asking Marty questions about his beliefs. She accepted an offer for Bible studies and studied a Daniel and Revelation Bible course. Weber faithfully visited to see if she had any questions as she continued to study. In 1972 Lee joined the East Pea Ridge church in Huntington, W.Va.

Some 10 years later, Mildred transferred her membership to the newly-built Point Pleasant church, which was much closer to her Gallipolis home. Several years later, in 1987, she joyfully witnessed the baptism of her husband, Howard (who is now deceased).

Lee has faithfully filled a variety of positions at her church from deaconess to Sabbath School teacher in both the children and adult classes. Although the world has changed and there have also been changes within the Adventist church, Lee has no regrets in joining the Adventist Church.
