Evangelist Louise Dowdy Patterson

by Bishop Milton R. Hawkins on November 20, 2022
After a brief battle with an illness, our Founder's wife, Evangelist Louise Dowdy Patterson, has entered the Church triumphant. On behalf of my wife Lady Catherine Crawford Hawkins, we share with millions who loved her dearly. She passed away at home Sunday Evening, November 20, 2022. I have offered prayers in the home of Evangelist Patterson for the family and loved ones. I am asking the saints to pray for her siblings, Mother Frances Kelley and Brother Ronnie Dowdy, along with her Patterson and Dowdy family. Please remember her daughter and caretaker, Sister Kaye Jackson, who served her faithfully for decades. 
 
As the Co-Founder of the Temple of Deliverance/ Bountiful Blessings Ministry, she and her late husband, my uncle, Presiding Bishop G.E. Patterson, served millions and impacted countless lives! Evangelist Patterson was known for her charitable deeds and numerous acts of kindness to others. She was an iconic figure in the body of Christ and will be remembered for her mentorship and grace. Each time she entered a room, she made a mammoth statement. Her final statement echo's the words of the apostle Paul, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith..." (2 Timothy 4:7). 
 
We will never forget the life and contributions of Evangelist Louise Dowdy Patterson.
