The “Golden Spotlight” for the Month of June 2017 brightly shines on an individual that assisted us in performing our “serving” duties. Many challenges were conquered with her help and I would like to thank Sister Angela Lake for her outstanding service to Fellowship Bible Baptist Church.
I used my traditional questions and answers interview approach to highlight some of the aspects of Sister Angela’s life.

What is your husband’s name?
My husband’s name is Leslie C. Lake.
How long have you been married?
I have been married for 34 years.

Yes we have three children. Their names are Harold 43; Anthony 39; and Kimberly 33.
What are your hobbies / interests?
My hobbies are: interior decorating, antique store shopping, praying for others and spoil-ing our grandchildren.
Tell us briefly about your career including activities at Fellowship.
In June 2016, after 15 years, I retired as Membership Secretary of FBBC. I am currently serving with the Mercy Showing Ministry and Prayer Team. I viewed my job as a ministry. My aim was always to please (my boss first; God) and then serve others. God used this desire to mold and shape me in His image.
How has your career molded you as a person?
My career helped and caused me to be more disciplined and focused.
What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
God has His own time table and I am learning to get on board with Him.
How would you like to be remembered?
I would like to be remembered as some-one who desires to decrease so Christ can increase in my life.
What is “your message” (words of wisdom) to Generation X, Y and Z?
Trust God, He is your personal Savior and He has plans just for you!
What is your favorite Scripture?
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Ephesians 3:20 (KJV)
