Linda Mawhorter
Albuquerque Mennonite Church
Linda Mawhorter has been a member of Albuquerque Mennonite Church since 2017. The hospitality and open attitude attracted her immediately.

She then graduated from Bangor Theological Seminary in 2013, volunteered and now works part time as a Chaplain at UNM Hospital.
