Margaret-ThiessenMargaret began her relationship with God at Bible camp. She met Abe while working at a canning factory in Port Dalhousie, Ont. The year before their wedding, Margaret and Abe studied together at Winkler (Man.) Bible Institute. They farmed, first near St. Catharines, then Jordan Station, Ont. Margaret’s pies were suburb. She lived frugally, so she could support missionaries; her fridge was full of prayer cards. Abe and Margaret served New Tribes Mission in Senegal, Australia, Papua New Guinea and Durham, Ont., 1989–1994. She opened her home to others, even during harvest season. Developing Parkinsons in her 80s meant she could no longer serve others in the same way. Margaret prayed for and encouraged her children to love God. Jesus sustained her.
