Edith came to know Christ through studying the Gospel with her husband and has now been a part of the family for 5 years and is an active member at La Vega church of Christ. Along with other couples, she and her husband, Marvin, are coordinators for the Family Ministry as well as their Spiritual Growth group which helps members of the church grow in their knowledge of the Bible. Edith is also the Director of Sunday School there. Before starting her job here, Edith studied law and this November will be graduating with her Master’s in finances. Her love for knowledge and helping is evident by her dedication to her studies and her roles at church. Edith has a passion for teaching and loves to prepare classes as she always learns from the preparation. In July of 2018, we were blessed to have her join our staff and are blessed to have been serving with her for a year now!
At Baxter, she is Director of the women’s program, Supervisor for the nursery and women’s cleaning assignments, organizes the women’s Devotional, and is also available to counsel and advise the women if a situation arises. As Director of the women’s program she is responsible for creating curriculum for and teaching the women’s classes. The setup of class can range from lecture to group discussions and topics of past semesters include Biblical Counseling and Effective Christian Administration. The daily morning devotionals are one of Edith’s favorite things about her job here at Baxter because it edifies her to be able to be in the devos learning and receiving the word of God. On top of that, the family of Christians and the love that is shown because of that makes Baxter a great work environment. Edith also says, “Here we are applying the Great Commission. We are making disciples.” We are overjoyed to have her here with us as we all strive to carry out the Great Commission!
