Blakely.At Wayside, she labored and worked through the years teaching, preaching and winning souls to the Lord.Mother Brooks was an anointed and appointed woman of God who stood with her husband in the ministry that God had given them.She stood for holiness, for without which no man shall see the Lord.She taught God's people to stand the test of life's storms and after having done all to stand, stand therefore.
Evangelist Brooks had blessed others with her love and compassion, in particular, her love for God and the knowledge of God's word.She spent countless hours in teaching ministry for the "Perfecting of the Saints."
