Citing their wisdom and knowledge of a worldwide family of believers, the World Methodist Council welcomed Dr. H. Eddie Fox, outgoing Director of World Methodist Evangelism and his wife Mary Nell Fox into the Honorable Order of Jerusalem.
The Order of Jerusalem was created by the Council to “honor individuals whose service to the global Methodist/Wesleyan family has been marked with honor and distinction.” The couple, who recently retired after 25 years with World Methodist Evangelism were given the award during the Council’s Steering Committee meetings in Atlanta, Georgia USA on September 4, 2014.
During the presentation, members of the Council’s Steering Committee recounted ways in which the ministry of Dr. Fox has impacted not only their church, but also their lives.
“Eddie and Mary Nell are a wonderful example of people who have given their lives to furthering the kingdom of God. Their work on the mission front is an inspiration to us all,” said General Secretary Ivan Abrahams.
