I met this great lady when I was a young teenager of 13. Sister Eiland was always a great example to me of how a Godly woman should live. I recall how the Spirit of God would move on her and how she would be used of the Holy Ghost.
Our hearts are saddened at the thought of her passing. We pray that the Holy Ghost who used her to edify God's people would now comfort the family.

Aunt Betty and Uncle James used to open their home for me to visit in the summers when I was a girl. Aunt Betty was one of the wisest and Godliest women I have ever known. She was full of common sense and had a great sense of humor as well. She and Uncle James were so in love, so I know he was thrilled to see her again. Her daughter, Melinda, did an unbelievable job as her caretaker. I will miss this great prayer warrior.
