Interview with Widow of Fred Winters

Earlier this month, Pastor Fred Winters was murdered while preaching in a Sunday morning worship service at the First Baptist Church in Maryville, Illinois. CBS News interviewed his wife, and she offered her forgiveness and prayers to the man who killed her husband. It’s a remarkable interview and worth your time to watch.

    I loved hearing her say the name of our Lord and Savior, over and over and over again!

    What an honor it will be to meet she and her husband in heaven one day!

    What an awesome testimony! I am so thankful that CBS did not edit her numerous references to Jesus, nor her explanation of the plan of salvation!

    I trust this precious lady will have the opportunity in this life to learn of the people came to the Lord through her testimony, and this tragedy.

    It is so much like the testimony of the wives of Nate Saint and Jim Elliot. In the end, the killers of the 5 martyred missionaries became Christians. The effects of their ministry continues to this day, even though that happened over 50 years ago!
