    DALLAS (BP) -- Dalia Gonzales, wife of Michael Gonzales, director of Hispanic ministries for the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, was honored with the 2018 Willie Turner Dawson Award during the Ministers' Wives Luncheon at the Southern Baptist Convention's annual meeting in Dallas.

    Gonzales, of Hurst, Texas, is the first Hispanic minister's wife to receive the award, which recognizes a minister's wife for making a distinct denominational contribution beyond the local church and for her Christian character and service to others.

    Kathy Litton, director of planter spouse care for the North American Mission Board, in presenting the annual award, called Gonzales "a true multiplier in the Kingdom of God" who has contributed greatly to Hispanic Southern Baptist women across Texas and beyond. Read More

    Harper, who spoke at the gathering in Dallas at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, also is mom to Melissa (Missy) Price Harper, whom she adopted from Haiti in 2014. Read More
