“I have ministered with and alongside Emma on numerous occasions. My first opportunity to minister with Emma was in 2003 when we ministered together as part of a ministry team in Costa Rica. In 2004, Emma ministered at my women’s mentoring group meeting in Edmond, Oklahoma. In 2006, I participated as a guest speaker at a women’s conference hosted by Emma at Canyon of the Eagles, Austin, Texas.
'Later in 2015, I ministered at her mentoring group meeting held I Austin. On each of these occasions her ministry ethics have enriched and chanted the lives of those that participated.
'In all of these occasions, I have found Emma to be a Godly Woman that honors protocol, a woman of integrity, a woman who is of Good character and a woman who is teachable and has a heart to train others to attain their maximum potential.
'It has been my observation and is my opinion that Emma is a gifted minister and a valuable asset to the body of Christ and I recommend her highly. On each of these occasions it has been a delight and pleasurable experience.”
