Dorothy Roberts

and Dawn Owens

   Helen Dawn Owens resides in Warner Robins, Georgia, with her husband, Bobby. While living on Taiwan as an Air Force wife, she wrote With Loving Hands and Tender Hearts, the biography of the life of a Norwegian missionary doctor, Olav Bjorgaas. Dawn has two daughters, Leslie, who is an emergency room nurse, and Monica, who is an agent of the American Red Cross serving on the Mississippi gulf coast.

   Dawn has a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and considers her greatest learning experience to be the 23 years she spent as a classroom and Sunday school teacher. Her students taught her to view the world with the resilience, wonder, and trust of children. World travel, music, reading, writing, and acting are Dawn’s passions. Well, those things and a pair of pretty red shoes!

   Dawn became an adopted part of Rev. Roberts’ family when her sister, Edith, married Rev. Robert’s son, David, in 1957.

   Rev. Dorothy Hutsler Wilkins Roberts was born May 25, 1918. She became a Christian at the age of ten and immediately began preaching the next day, weeping with sincerity as she told anyone who would listen to her that Jesus had saved her when she didn’t even know she was lost. Her evangelistic style is reminiscent of the early forties and fifties when evangelists were on fire for God and preached with passion for lost sinners.

   Sister Roberts is an elegant, sincere, lady of prayer, who has touched the lives of hundreds for eternity. At the age of 93, Grandmáma can still bring a congregation to their feet with her singing and can draw them to an altar for repentance or for prayer for healing. She has served as an evangelist or pastor for over seventy years. She has preached salvation through the shed blood of Jesus and divine healing with a fervency that has never wavered.
