She was called and anointed by God to proclaim His word and to make known His name for the gift of eternal life. She was blessed with His gift of prayer and faith. She believed in divine healing. Reverend Hill is “one who loves the Lord, fears the Lord, believed his word and stood on His promises.” Reverend Hill’s greatest joy was to see souls being saved and fully committed to Christ, letting others know that God uses ordinary people, taking them out of darkness into light, filling them with His spirit and enabling them to do extra ordinary things.
