ERIKA SCHULTZ / THE SEATTLE TIMES
Mother Geneva Willins, 95, pauses after services at Truevine of Holiness Missionary Baptist Church in Seattle's Central District. Willins, one of the founders of the church, serves as the senior mother and a field missionary. Several times a week, she visits the sick in hospitals and nursing homes. In church, she provides advice to young women, sings in the gospel choir and hosts yard sales to raise funds for Sunday school. "Every Christian should have a task to do," says Willins. "Not everybody can preach, not everybody can sing, but they have something to do for the Lord."
