From the age of 11, Velma began to teach a Sunday School class for children. During the summer of 1945 she was leading the children’s ministry at a camp-meeting for the then, Oklahoma Conference of the Pentecostal Holiness Church where she met a young preacher named James Zenger. When James first saw her, he told the other young ministers who were standing with him, “That’s the girl I’m going to marry.” James and Velma married on September 1, 1945, that same year, and were faithfully devoted to each other for 70 years until her husband and love of her life passed away on July 8, 2016.
