In Loving Memory

Delores Foster Collins

As we take this time to celebrate Delores' life and her ministry, we also herald the tremendous contributions she made to foreign missions work and within the Foreign Mission Board, National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.


Delores has left a void that will be hard to fill. She was committed to her assignment and was the epitome of excellence. She was thorough, and did not hesitate to go the extra mile. She was diplomatic and at the same time honest and direct. She was a blessing to every Executive Secretary who had the privilege of working with her and earned the respect, love and admiration of board members and everyone on the mission field. Delores was indispensable and did this work because she loved it.


Delores was not only a devoted and beloved colleague... she was family. 


We pray that God will give us the strength to bow humbly in submission 

to the perfect will of Jesus the Christ, who does all things well.

“God Will Take Care of You”

by Civilla D. Martin


Be not dismayed whate’er betide,

God will take care of you;

beneath his wings of love abide,

God will take care of you.

God will take care of you,

through every day, o’er all the way;

he will take care of you,

God will take care of you.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to the Foreign Mission Board, "In Memory of Delores Foster-Collins."
