$50,000: Armina and John Lester Sr

Armina was born in Kentucky, the 4th of 10 children. John Sr was born in Virginia, the eldest of 11 children. However, Armina and John Sr, later, both moved to Michigan, where they met and married and after 50+ years of marriage now still reside today. Armina’s father Earl Fultz was a Pentecostal minister, hunter and master fisherman. Many of the farmers in the rural community often asked her Dad to clear out the coons, foxes and other animals from their land so as to keep the animals from eating their crops.  One of the farmers had a church on his property and asked Earl if he would like to use it for his church services. That is how The Rochester (Michigan) Church of God began.  After a number of years the area slowly turned from rural farmlands into the suburbs they are today. The farmer who had allowed Armina’s dad, Earl, to hold his church services on his land sold his farm. Therefore, the Fultz family had to return to having church services in their home, while saving money to buy their own church. When the Lord blessed them with the money they needed, all of the children in the family, tall to small, helped to build their new church from the ground up.  Armina can remember taking cement blocks and putting them on a conveyer belt to send them down into the basement in order to finish the walls.  The church was built so solidly and with such love that it still stands strong on Auburn Road today, almost 60 years later. Armina quit school when she was 16 in order to help her Mom And Dad raise her two youngest brothers.  When she was 18, she met John Sr through his family.  His family had been attending her father’s church and John Sr’s sisters introduced them after services one day.  Armina and John Sr dated for 4 years before marrying on August 25th, 1962.  They lived in Detroit for six years, near Ford Motor Company (where John Sr worked). Eleven months after their wedding, God blessed them with a bouncing 7 pounds, 3 ounce baby boy, John Jr!  Armina’s life was full and rich taking care of her family and raising her children.  She gardened, canned, loved to cook, helped out at her children’s schools, attended school outings and every school function, she was a Boy Scout and Girl Scout mom, and she traveled out of state many times for school debates and drill team competitions.  At this time she also went back to school to finish her high school diploma, and she began taking college courses.In 1979, knowing that big college bills were just around the corner, Armina began to work outside the home again as a part-time file clerk for a company called Abitibi Price.  She did so well, that it wasn’t long before she was promoted to Customer Credit Representative.  Eventually she was so highly regarded by her company that they were flying Armina all over the United States to solve various problems and to perform PR work for them. In 1987, Armina resigned from Abitibi Price to attend real estate school.  She obtained her real estate license, and had great success in that career until she retired in the early 2000s.  John Sr joined Armina in retirement just a few years later, after having worked at Ford Motor Company for 48 and a ½ years (apart from a Ford layoff period from 1958 to 1960 when John Sr also served 2 years in the United States Army).  They have been a Top 5 All-Time Cumulative Money Earner with another direct selling company in the past, in addition to their superlative performance with Pure Hearts International currently. They are Pentecostals. They have both been thoroughly enjoying their retirement, and they have never loved each other’s company more.

$20,000: Essie Stamper 

Essie Stamper is Armina Lester's older sister, so much of Armina's early biography above applies equally to Essie. Essie is also John Jr's favorite Aunt, partly because she is the person who introduced him to network marketing in 1988. Essie is Pentecostal and has resided in the Clarkston area of Michigan for most of her life. Like Armina, she met her husband, Bill, in her father's Pentecostal church. Bill, who passed on several years ago, and widow Essie, raised 5 beautiful children, and over a dozen grandchildren and counting! In addition to Bill's trucking work, she chose to serve the Lord by serving as foster mother to literally dozens of children over several decades. She and Bill eventually legally adopted 4 of these children, and she is and always will be "their Mom!"

$50,000: Joanne Bailey

Joanne was born in Rochester, New York, where she still resides today. Joanne's interests while she was growing up revolved around music and dancing. She has been a member of Harmony, Inc. and more recently a choral member of the Sweet Adelines International, Inc. They perform regionally throughout the year and are an all women's offshoot of the nearly century old barber shop singing legion, SPEBSQSA - the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America, Inc. Joanne attended Catholic school. She was baptized and received her communion and her confirmation, all at the Holy Redeemer Church. Married at 17, Joanne went on to have 3 children in 5 years. After her children were born, Joanne attended Sawyer Business School. However, due to a medical issue that caused seizures, Joanne was unable to work outside the home until she had brain surgery in 1995 to remove a tumor. In 1997, she accepted a part-time job as a sub-cook in a high school. Due to her excellent hard work she was quickly made a full time manager by 1998. Joanne has been working various home-based businesses since 1995. She had, of course, heard of future Pure Hearts International Founder John Lester, but she had never had an opportunity to speak to him until March 18, 2009. She remembers that day vividly, saying, "I was in awe of John Lester. I did everything possible to learn from him the best ways to work my home-based business." Joanne went on to say that "Being a LIFETIME Crown Philanthropist is the best experience I have ever had. One word: Phenomenal!"

Carol and Glen both have been missionaries to the nearby Indian reservations of the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho in Lander, Wyoming for many years.
