Sister Mary E. Michaux was the Co-founder of the Gospel Spreading Association, which began in their home in Newport News, Va. Disgusted with the hypocrisy of the sectarian churches, she was led to “COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE SEPARATE”. Sister Michaux as a young woman, was led by God, to be a missionary. She went from house to house in the red light districts telling people about the love of God. Many listened and were blessed. She was a great influence in causing the Elder to give his heart to God.
Sister Michaux loved to sing. Her favorite songs were : ”Some Golden Daybreak”, Yield Not To Temptation”, and “Don’t Forget that Jesus Loves You”. Her singing was a great inspiration to Elder Michaux and he had her to sing on his radio broadcasts.
Sister Michaux was greatly interested in the youth. She wanted to plant seeds of purity in their minds. She would write tracts and pass them out on the street. One tract was called “A Call To The Youth.” Sister was a believer in cleanliness of the mind and body. So she was inspired to start the “Purity Club”. She established the Purity Club in each of the churches. The members of the Purity Club were taught the word of God through paintings, sketches, inspiration songs, Bible lessons, motion pictures and the Sword Drills. The Sword Drills taught the young people to find the scriptures quickly. She taught the young ladies to be “A Peach Out of Reach” of the devil.
Sister Michaux willingly suffered to lift and hold a high standard for God and Godliness for the people in the church and I the minds of our youth. God saved her in her youth and kept her saved. She said “He can keep you! I didn’t play the part of the hypocrite, but stood up for God.
Sister Michaux died on October 20, 1967. She was a lady of ladies. (Taken from the “Victory in Jesus” book .1979)
