I am involved in a Bible Series on the end times at my Church. Years ago I read her illuminating book "When Your Money Fails". I was able to quickly find her book in my library for reuse for my series. I began to wonder if she was still with us and discovered she'd gone on to be with Jesus. I can say that her work was before its time and many things she wrote of are coming into focus nearing the LORDs return. Ive never met her in person but have through her lasting work. She has left us-the Church- a treasure and her works will follow her for the Glory of God...Gods Grace be with her family in their loss . Chaplain Don Goodwin (LTC-ret USA)

I have not known the late Dr. Relfe at all, except through her book that was translated in Korean by a scientist Ph.D In-Soon Chang back in 1983.

At this moment, I am working with Ph.D Chang and then had a want to know of the author of the original copy of his translation.

Thank you for keeping this site of memorial, so that I could join to leave a good message to resting the late (and perhaps to caring family).

With respect and love,

The above is the web address to the posting I wrote as my dedication to one of the godliest women I ever had the privilege of meeting, Mary Stewart Relfe.

September 4, 2011

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
