I was a newly saved woman, April 15, 1980. In May I started receiving Mary's one page newsletter. She was and is such a rich part of my growing in Jesus. Twenty one years ago I married Kevin and we always looked forward to Mary's letter. We requested prayers a number of times and were so grateful to have her on our side. We give to the League with love and prayer and will continue to do so. Heaven's gain and our loss. God Bless You All. Love Always, Kevin and Laura Barber

Dr. Mary Relfe was very well known to me for being the Christian Woman that she was. The vision God had given her about the League of Prayer played a very important part in my life. It was a place I could go to and spend time in God's presence. Her life will always be remembered by many. Shirley Williams
