I started singing for the Lord finally in obedience.
My name is Marlene K. Roe-Hall. I was born in Massillion, OH and lived in Ohio until I was 18. When I was young my mother took me to our grandparents’ church when they had their revivals. The music was spirit filled and many songs stayed in my head. I was 12 years old in 1957 when I accepted Jesus as my Savior.
When I was 17, I met my husband, Chet. We were married 6 months later. I thought he was a Christian but found later that he wasn’t. We started out as unequally yoked. When I was 20 years old God asked me to sing for Him. I did not! A very wrong choice, I know! I did not go to church because my husband did not believe in God and wouldn’t go with me. When our children were older I took them to church & Sunday school. About 10 years after that I backslid even more. My husband was in the U.S. Navy and stayed there for a total of 27 years. We have lived in many different locations.
After he retired we moved to Oregon in August 1991. In 2006 we attended Oak Creek Christian Center in Albany, OR. It was there we met Matilda & Joseph Novak. Joseph was instrumental in tearing down the wall that Chet had built up around himself. Chet was saved in July 2006 at the age of 64. In August both Chet & I were baptized and began to live for the Lord. Life is so much better when God is the head of the household. We have been blessed many times over since then.
I have been attending Lebanon First Assembly since April 2012. I joined the worship team and that Christmas I sang my first solo. It was that year I started singing for the Lord finally in obedience.
Gordon Kuryluk gave me the opportunity to sing with the PGMA in 2017 & GGM in 2018. I thank him for that opportunity. In 2018 I recorded “Oh, Say But I’m Glad” CD at his studio. We are currently working on another project. It will be out sometime this year (2019). Gordon and my husband have encouraged me greatly through these projects. Thank you both very much.
