“One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek after, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to behold the beauty of the Lord and inquire in his temple.” Psalm 27:4 On Sunday May 9, 2021, our Heavenly Father claimed his own: A devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great grandmother, sister, niece, aunt, confidant and friend. Carrie Collins “momma” as she was affectionately known, quietly left this world of sorrow, sin and pain to be with her father who promised her a mansion. (John 14: 2-4) Mother Collins was born on April 18,1935 to Mr Ernest and Mrs Luetta Barnett I’m Hodgenville Ky. Both parents proceeded her in death. Accepting Christ at an early age, she moved to Indianapolis, Indiana and there she began her work for God by using her voice in the Quartet Arena as a member of the group “Sacred Four” where she traveled the world doing God’s work!
