One could say that Anna Lind was like other Wisconsin Lutheran College friends and donors. Like other loyal supporters, she loved the mission of WLC. One significant exception, however, is that Anna was a faithful supporter when she was 100 years old. The Lord called Anna home on November 28, 2014 at the age of 101. We are grateful for her friendship and support she shared with Wisconsin Lutheran College.
Although generations apart from the students she supports, Anna has become a long-distance fan of WLC and its mission to prepare young men and women for lives of Christian leadership. Over the years, Anna has acted on her love of this mission. She continues to live her motto of "God's money, not mine!" as she supports WLC (through a planned gift)-a ministry that has become near and dear to her heart.
Visit with her and you are impressed with her vitality and her joy in supporting the work of the college. Running out of gas? Not Anna. Talking with her is an energizing experience; she shares her enthusiasm about WLC with her fellow sisters and brothers at her congregation, Open Bible Church in Oxford, Florida.
Like other supporters of WLC, Anna generously gives. But she also encourages others to support WLC in a number of ways-to be an advocate for the college, to pray for the college and to financially support the college as they are able. Knowing Anna makes it easy to praise our wonderful God for providing friends like her and many others who continue to demonstrate their love for WLC.
Anna Lind's story may remind you of another Anna whose life reflected her love for her Savior. The Bible tells the story of Anna of the temple, who although she was of advanced age, was a woman of God who concentrated her remaining energy on serving God daily.
Anna Lind's words and actions continue to support a college, 1,100 miles away, which is preparing the next generation of Christian men and women who will positively impact their families, churches, workplaces and communities. Thank you, Anna, for being part of the WLC family.
