Timothy is the husband of April Woodson Scott, niece of Mrs. Flora Bolt. The Scotts are living in Fluvanna in the home of her parents, the Rev. and Mrs. Buddy Woodson, while they are in London, England. They are serving as Baptist missionaries to the Spanish speaking people in London. Timothy will continue his education at South Eastern University at Wake Forest. They are the third generation to attend this university. The Rev. Bruce Woodson, of Bluefield, led the ordination service giving the charge to Timothy and a sermon. Timothy responded with a wonderful sermon. The ministers and deacons did the laying on of the hands and presented Timothy with a Bible. The late Rev. Merrell Woodson always told his sons to preach the Word, and Buddy and Bruce are doing just that. Timothy is also preaching the Word. A reception was held for Timothy and April following the service. Mrs. Merrell Woodson, of Bluefield, WV, was in attendance and had a special reading.
