You Make Jesus Smile - Bob and Mary Lou Wallner
In 1997, Anna, Mr. and Mrs. Wallner's lesbian daughter, took her life. Mr. and Mrs. Wallner now work to help eliminate homophobia and to help people understand the depth of God's love for gays and lesbians. TEACH Ministries is a ministry of love operated by the Wallners.
For being allies of God's gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans-identified children and for proclaiming the good news - "Jesus loves queer people" - we present you the You Make Jesus Smile Award.
