Sister Lily Kimble worked in 2002 at the New Orleans East Franklin Avenue location where I pastored under Dr. Fred Luter. She was director of Sunday school at that location and taught the word of God along with Pastor Kelly O’Connor for three years until Hurricane Katrina.
She adored Pastor and First Lady Luter and served faithfully.
God bless her,
