Samantha Lewis"][/caption] "The Stegall Scholarship has been an absolute blessing for me during my three years at Candler School of Theology (Emory University). Not only did the money always arrive exactly when I needed it, but I knew that it was coming from people who truly cared about me. Whether or not each donor knew me personally, they were willing to invest in my future ministry. As I enter the parish this July, I am reminded of all those who surrounded me throughout my years in seminary with their prayers and gifts. It is an absolute joy to return to the Alabama-West Florida Conference to serve those who have supported me for the last three years." -Samantha Lewis 2012 graduate of Candler School of Theology Appointed to St. Luke UMC, Montgomery, Ala.
