SHE AND BRO THOMPSON WERE MARRIED IN 1949, AND OH WHAT A LIFE THEY HAD. NO, THEY DIDN’T HAVE A LOT OF THESE EARTHLY RICHES BUT THEY HAD EACH OTHER AND THEY LOVED EACH OTHER VERY MUCH AND THEY LOVED GOD. SHE TAUGHT HER CHILDREN TO LOVE GOD. SHE WAS A VERY LOVING WIFE; SHE WAS A PASTORS WIFE TO REV WD THOMPSON. SHE FOLLOWED HIM ALL OVER TEXAS AND LA, MAYBE SOME IN MISSISSIPPI. BRO THOMPSON WORKED IN CONSTRUCTION FOR T L JAMES COMPANY, BUT HIS MOST IMPORTANT VOCATION WAS THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING CALLED TO PREACH. SISTER THOMPSON LOVED CHURCH AND ALWAYS CARRIED HER CHILDREN TO THE HOUSE OF GOD. SIS THOMPSON WAS A SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER FOR MANY YEARS. SHE WAS A LEADER OF WORSHIP. SHE WAS ALWAYS THE FIRST TO STAND UP AND START PRAISING GOD DURING THE SERVICE. IF THEY EVER HAD A BUS MINISTRY SHE WOULD BE NUMBER ONE FOR BRINGING THE MOST PEOPLE TO CHURCH. IF SHE PICKED YOU UP YOU WERE AT CHURCH IN TIME FOR THE PRAYER ROOM SERVICE. SHE WAS A PRAYER WARRIOR, A FAITHFUL PRAYING WOMAN, HER DAY STARTED AT 4:00 AM IN PRAYER AND READING HER BIBLE NUMEROUS TIMES. SIS THOMPSON WAS FAMOUS FOR HER HOMEMADE YEAST ROLLS. IF SHE FOUND OUT YOU WERE SICK OR HAD BEEN IN THE HOSPITAL OR JUST OUT OF THE KINDNESS OF HER HEART YOU RECEIVED A SKILLET FULL OF THE DELICIOUS ROLLS AND SOMETIMES IT WAS JUST A WAY OF INVITING YOU TO CHURCH, BUT OF COURSE THE FAMILY GOT THEM EVERY SUNDAY AND EVERY GET TOGETHER THERE WERE ALWAYS ROLLS. THE LATE REV ERNEST HOOTER AND REV MANSON PITRE WERE A TREMENDOUS HELP IN GETTING THEM STARTED IN THE MINISTRY. IN 1972, THEY ESTABLISHED GOOD ROAD PENTECOSTAL CHURCH.
