Marlene accepted the Lord Jesus Christ when she was 10 years old at a Vacation Bible School.  During her college years she went away from the Lord but He kept His hand on her.  After many years of teaching she decided to try nursing, but after a fall injured her back she was unable to continue.  She asked the Lord what He wanted her to do.

The first think she thought of was CEF (Child Evangelism Fellowship).  For several years, she had had a Good News Club in her home, reaching out to neighborhood chidren.  She called CEF headquarters and they put her in touch with Thelma Gray who was CEF Director for Tacoma-Pierce County.  Thelma had worked in CEF for 40 years and was getting ready to retire.  Marlene worked as an intern under Thelma and then took over as Director in June 1998.  BLCC gave our support to her at this time, as well as continuing with retirement support of Thelma Gray.  Thelma passed away in the Fall of 2007.

     *Good News Clubs offered during the school year
     *Party Clubs presented during holidays such as Christmas, Valentine's Day & Easter
     *5-Day Clubs/VBS offered during the summer months
