The Koinonia community grieves the loss of Mrs. Rosalynn Carter. We treasure every moment we were able to spend with her. She, President Carter, and the whole Carter family have been such good neighbors and friends to Koinonia. Mrs. Carter was a peacemaker who, through her work both close to home and further afield, always embodied “love through service to others.” We pray for her, her family, her friends, the City of Plains, and Sumter County. We grieve with them and yet rejoice in the example she has given to all of us and the world.
