    To the family of Sister J. Woods, Our family sends words of comfort and support at this time of remembrance. During our pastorate at Wilson Street we must say that Sister Woods was committed to her love for Christ. Whatever her hands found to do she did it with her might. Oftentimes she was our only pianist and she often invited us to their home at mealtime. Thank God for her faithfulness. Bishop Whitbourne and Ingrid Hutchinson

    Missionary Woods was an essential asset to the Church of God of Prophecy. Serving as Missions Director, she was consistent in her efforts to evangelize lost souls and minister to their personal needs of food, shelter, and clothing. May the works she has done speak for her. Prayers and condolences to the family.
