Evangelist Tamar Ennis-White, born on July 11, 1930, went to be with the Lord December 5, 2019. Let’s define her with verses of Proverbs 31. Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. Strength and honor are her clothing, and she stretches out her hands to the poor and needy. She opens her mouth with wisdom and in her tongue is the laws of kindness. Her children arise up and call her blessed; she was a woman that feared the Lord.
