If there is anyone I know who deserves recognition it is Jane Berg. Born in England, I met her when she and her husband came to Arizona over 20 years ago. She is constantly doing things for others in our church and elsewhere. She is called upon so often to give of herself and her time, whether it be in the middle of the night, or any time of day, yet I have never heard her complain or criticize others. She is like a mother to all the members of our church and actually saved my life two years ago when I was delirious with fever (she took me to the ER and stayed with me for hours). She is raising her own children, including a son with autism, and caring, remotely, for her mother, who is in a nursing home in England. She is married to the pastor of our church, who is from Sweden. They offer a shining example of a partnership in marriage–working together, supporting each other, depending on each other, uplifting each other, and expressing loving for each other. She does not buy a lot of things for herself. I would like to see her receive something to help recognize her for all that she does.
