Braun,-MarthaAt a girls’ club session when she was 14, Martha realized she too had gone astray (Isaiah 53:5–6) and accepted Jesus as Saviour. 1 John 1:7 was given to her at her baptism. Martha graduated from Yarrow Bible School and MB Bible College, Winnipeg. Her desire was to serve the Lord. She taught Sunday school many years. Martha served Canada Inland Mission, Grand Forks, B.C., 3 summers, and then was assistant at West Coast Children’s Mission. She worked for a finance company in Vancouver. With the Ambassadors, she sang in rest homes and at Union Gospel Mission. In 1975, Martha served Wycliffe Bible Translators’ finance office in Mexico. When that door closed to foreign missionaries, she worked at Wycliffe’s Calgary office. She and Neil lived in Penticton, Kelowna and Abbotsford, B.C. She volunteered at Ten Thousand Villages. After Neil’s death, Martha continued her involvements at Menno Place, Abbotsford, B.C., with joy.
