Twila Wanamaker's Story



“As president of American Baptist Women’s Ministries of Massachusetts (ABWM of MA), from 2004 to 2007, I had the opportunity to meet and serve women all across the state. I was challenged to have gatherings that were meaningful, worshipful, and fun. None of this was accomplished alone; I had a wonderful, encouraging team of coordinators whose input, support, and prayer lifted me up and, of course, there was always the steadfast God.”

“Also I had the opportunity to represent ABWM of MA nationally, having a voice in ABWM of USA, learning from other women around the country, and sharing what we do here in Massachusetts. I learned about the American Baptist Assembly’s Green Lake meeting place and all the resources available to us. What an honor and privilege to serve!”

“Twila is a genuine person who has such good qualities as a Christian woman. It was my pleasure to serve on the National Board with her and am happy to call her my friend. Blessings for her; she deserves the best."

“The name Twila means light and that is who Twila is. She brings light into the darkness through her faith and actions in serving others. She is a blessing and a special friend to all. She is a true leader who radiates God’s love and faithfulness.”

- Barbara Anderson

“Twila Ann Bombard Wanamaker and I have been friends since birth. We were on the Cradle Roll at the First Baptist Church in Cambridge and grew up attending Sunday School, singing in the choir and attending youth group. Twila and I were campers at Camp Ataloa for many years and brought our children to Oceanwood for several years as well. There are so many treasured memories of those precious times! Together we have also built more memories at Green Lake and as members of All Hands In. Twila has always been a strong woman of faith to all those around her, especially during life threatening illnesses and the tragic loss of our beloved Scott. She is one of the valuable gifts in my life; a lifelong friend and AB sister. May God richly bless you Twila!”
