A new babe in Christ — at 108 years old
New on The Christian Chronicle’s website:
Margaret Cooke felt numb.
She could not believe what she was seeing.
For more than a half-century, Cooke, 78, had prayed that her mother, Lula Wallace, would accept the Gospel.
Now, five months shy of her 109th birthday, Wallace — still in her wheelchair — was being lowered into the chilly water at the Norris Road Church of Christ in Memphis, Tenn.
Cooke would find it difficult to sleep the next few nights, as if it had been a dream and she might wake up to discover Wallace really hadn’t confessed her faith in Jesus and washed away her sins.
