A SHINING LIGHT FOR JESUSOur ministry family is grieving the loss and celebrating the life of Carol Weaver—a beloved friend, sister in the Lord, and co-laborer in the gospel. Carol began volunteering at our ministry in 1997. She became director of one of our centers in 1999 and has directed our post-abortion ministry since 2004. She and her husband Tim have three married daughters and eight grandchildren.
Carol was known for her vibrant love for Jesus, her deep compassion for people, and her passionate faith and prayer. Her life impacted each staff member and volunteer at our ministry, and the countless individuals she counseled or trained in post-abortion recovery.
When Carol first began post-abortion ministry, she’d say, “People come to me in such bondage because of the guilt they’re carrying. I have to try to keep a lid on my enthusiasm because I have so much faith that God will forgive them and set them free!”
Carol’s contagious joy was rooted in her love for Jesus and His Word. She saw people with Jesus’ eyes, and went out of her way to talk to and pray with strangers. Recently, she prayed with a woman in a grocery store who said to her afterwards, “You’re the first person in weeks who paid attention to me and spoke kindly to me.”
Carol was an exemplary shepherd-leader. She walked so closely with the Good Shepherd that His qualities emanated through her. When you were in her presence, you experienced the presence and love of God.
If Carol were here to read these words or hear the many, many accolades she’s receiving, she would say, “Well, glory to God! It’s all Him anyway!”
While our hearts break with the pain of earthly separation, our spirits soar with the joy of heaven’s reality. We know Carol is with Jesus forever.
We love you SO MUCH, Carol! We’ll see you on the other side.
“Be God’s children,
blameless, sincere and wholesome,
living in a warped and diseased world,
and shining there like lights in a dark place.
For you hold in your hands the very word of life.”
