From my friend, Leonard Allen, who lost his mother.
Carolyn O. Allen passed away just before Thanksgiving in the home of her daughter near Portland, Oregon. She was a member of University Church of Christ from 1983 to 1997, and was a long-time volunteer at the Christian Service Center in Abilene. The funeral service will be in Sandy, Oregon on Friday, December 2.
Memorial gifts may be made to the “Books for Missions” fund at Abilene Christian University Press, 1648 Campus Court, Abilene, TX 79601.
Leonard Allen has established a fund from which to provide books for missionaries. Funds buy books that missionaries have requested, and Leafwood Publishers ships the books to those missionaries. Having been in that position of needing books while overseas and being far from them, I welcome this new service to missionaries.
