My Grandmother

Posted on July 30, 2008

I’d like to share a recorded sermon from my grandmother Elizabeth (Betty) Botz. She was an amazing children’s pastor. God flowed through her in a mighty way. She brought the love of Jesus to thousands of children and inspired hundreds of men and women along the way. She went home to heaven 3 years ago and I am a carrying the mantle of my grandmother.

    I’m so glad you posted this. Sometime, save on CD for me as an MP3…I’d like to have on my itunes. It’s good to hear her voice and remember how blessed we wer to have her as our Geemaw and spiritual mentor. You are carrying her mantel.
    Love you, Tiffy

    I found this message through the Facebook IBC site. Your grandmother was such an important person in my life, a mentor, later a friend. I came to IBC at age 16 and she was asecond mother to me. I graduated in 1976 and did not have much contact after that. I taked to her years ago and was able to thank her for her input in my life. I am a teacher today and have been involved in many children’s ministries over the years, and I can attribute most of what I know about reaching children from Betty Botz. I’m so glad I found this recording; I needed it today. Thank you for sharing it. Can I somehow get a recording of it? God bless you in your ministry.

    Awesome, just to hear that voice again… Sister Botz introduced me to children, to ministry, to vision, to the unestimable value of the human soul. Mostly that it’s value never dropped because of age( or more so the lack of it). I am who I am because of her, 17 yrs. on the Mexico mission field, 10 yrs. as youth pastor, 27 yrs. married, 2 wonderful children who love God- all because of her. Heaven will be populated with hundred’s of thousands, probably millions because of this lady’s influence. She definetly will be one of the 1st I look for when I get there. How appropriate, this message on heaven…..

    Thank you so much for sharing this. It was forwarded to me by one of my IBC classmates. I had the privilege of traveling with your grandmother on the puppet team for several years. Your sister Shelly went along with us one summer as well. No one has to tell you what a phenomenal woman your grandmother was. Her impact was tremendous in my life. Her unconditional love and contagious laughter and incredible wisdom left an indelible impression on my heart. Hearing her voice brings tremendous comfort.

    Bless you as you continue to minister the love of God to children. You have chosen a great thing; or perhaps a great thing has chosen you.

    Many blessings,

    Denise Phenix Campbell
