It probably shouldn’t have been a surprise when she did, considering she’s rarely missed such assignments. But the previous day, Jensen was among 10 people left homeless by a fire at a Lake Los Angeles mobile-home park that destroyed seven homes. On Friday, Jensen and 30 or so other Lake Los Angeles Foursquare Gospel Church volunteers were honored at a luncheon. Jensen, the food ministry coordinator, was introduced as a special guest at the event. Other special guests included Grace Resource Center Executive Director Steve Baker, Lake Los Angeles Rural Town Council President Marlene Olivarez and Wilsona School District Superintendent Ned McNabb. last_img
