Women’s Ministry Coordinator
About 17 years ago, as a single mom, working full time and going to school full time, Anna, feeling despaired, told the Lord she was nothing but an ant that was “squishable”; however, she heard The Lord say, “But through Christ you are everything.” She realized she needed to give her life to Jesus but didn’t know how so she asked the Lord and she heard the song, What a Friend we have in Jesus, take it all to Him in Pray, in her heart causing her to cry out to the Lord, “You can have my life I don’t want it, it’s yours….I can’t smile on my own but through you I can.” A week later she realized that she wanted to know this Jesus that saved her and begin reading and studying her Bible on a regular basis.
Anna has served in different areas of ministry with children and youth but also serving where there was a need. Serving is Anna’s passion. She believes in the saying, “Practice makes perfect” when it comes to serving.
Anna married Ray Jensen in 2010 and he accepted her son Steven as his own. They are pleased that their son will be getting married in March 2014 to a young woman, Rebekah Hair, who they love and adore. She is proud that her family is ministry minded where all of them have gone on mission trips and make it a life style to share the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. Ray, Anna and Stevie have been members of First Baptist Church Pearland since 2009.
Anna’s life verse is Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
My love to all in Christ Jesus,
