In Memoriam: Anna Young
Recently, Pastor Debbie Loessy of Berean Baptist Church, Carbondale, officiated the funeral service of Anna Young, a faithful American Baptist saint who served her life in prison ministry at the Lackawanna County Prison. Pastor Debbie spoke eloquently about Anna’s life, faith and ministry, speaking from Psalm 121 and quoting the lyrics of “How Great Thou Art.” During the time of sharing, one person shared about how she came to know Jesus through Anna’s ministry in the prison in 1990. The service was a nice tribute of a faithful servant of God and beautiful testimony of a person who loved and served her Savior. In 2019, American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) presented its national-recognition Jitsuo Morikawa ABHMS Healing and Transforming Communities Award to Anna Young, the organization’s longest-serving volunteer.
