Winifred Garlow Memorial Fund


Winifred Garlow graduated to heaven on September 14, 2023 at 6:40pm, having lived 102 years, 3 months, 17 days, 22 hours and 28 minutes. She was the mother of Dr. Jim Garlow, Judy Garlow Wade, both of San Diego, and Dr. Bill Garlow of the Kansas City area. Jim and Judy are known to many of you through Well Versed and the World Prayer Network.
Mrs. Garlow was the Matriarch of Well Versed and the World Prayer Network calls. She was on almost every single WPN call from their inception in November of 2020 to the present. She would come on for the one hour of prayer before the calls go live. Then she was on the entire duration – usually two hours – of the call. Then she would be on the zoom group after the call went off the air for another few minutes of visiting that happened after each call. She planned her whole day around being ready for these calls.

She and her husband, who died 25 years ago, were lifelong farmers in Kansas, and were very involved there in many ministries for our Lord, but in later years had lived in the larger cities where their children had lived – Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Dallas-Ft. Worth – and then finally in San Diego the last 28 years of her life.
We would like to honor her by beginning the WINIFRED GARLOW WELL VERSED “NEXT GENERATION” FUND. What is that? Winifred, and her late husband Burtis, worked diligently to get as many children as possible to church services. The would pack in so many children to take to Sunday School. They would help raise funds to get youth to a Christian high school, and to a Christian college. This was a passion of theirs. Burtis Garlow (1915-1998) would often say to his son Jim Garlow, a pastor, “Focus on the next generation. Focus on the next generation.”

Therefore, we are calling it the WINIFRED GARLOW WELL VERSED “NEXT GENERATION” FUND. How will it be used? Her son Dr. Jim Garlow, co-founder of Well Versed, is writing a new book titled “Well Versed in a Woke World,” laying out the Biblical principles regarding almost 60 different political-governmental issues.
In addition to the adult book, we are developing companion volumes: a junior high version, a children’s version, and a children’s coloring book. We are trying to reach “the next generation” with how to think Biblically regarding governmental and political issues. A cartoonist and some specialist in children’s and youth ministry are part of the team making this happen.
Your contribution to the WINIFRED GARLOW WELL VERSED “NEXT GENERATION” FUND will help us reach that goal. Thank you so much for contributing to that great cause.
