“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Sister Barbara “Bobbie” Louise Robinson Henderson was born in Alexandria, LA, on February 9, 1955, to the late Emma Lee Robinson and Leonard Dupar, Sr. She began her life in Simmesport, LA, where she received her formal education. She later moved to East Carroll Parish, where she attended school and became a member of Central Baptist No. 2 Church under the leadership of the late Reverend Gus Lee. She also served as a member of the New Hope Baptist Church Choir.
