Retired missionary and author Rosalie Hall Hunt received a surprise during the Jan. 8 general session of the National Woman’s Missionary Union January Board Meeting in Birmingham.
David George, president of WMU Foundation, announced the new Rosalie Hunt Devoted Patron Award and presented the inaugural award to Hunt. Along with the award, a brick in WMU Foundation’s Walk of Faith will be placed in her honor.
The new award recognizes those WMU Foundation patrons who are faithful to their missions passion, consistently giving and demonstrating steadfast loyalty to making an impact through gifts.
Life dedicated to missions
Hunt, a former WMU Foundation board member, donates consistently to various missions funds and allows the proceeds of her many books to go toward supporting missions endeavors, including the Touch Tomorrow Today endowment managed by WMU Foundation.
The daughter of missionaries to China, she and her husband, Bob, served for 30 years as missionaries in eight Asian countries before retiring to Guntersville, Alabama. Hunt is a past president of Alabama WMU, served five years as national WMU recording secretary and currently serves on the board of directors for The Alabama Baptist and TAB Media Group.
