Short biography
Adell Harvey served as a counter-cult missionary to the Mormons in southeast Idaho alongside her husband for more than 20 years. Having planted a church in a town that had never had anything of a religious nature but a Mormon ward in its 100-year history, they later pastored the only non-Mormon church in an entire county. God richly blessed their ministry, resulting in many Mormons coming to Christ.

Adell has eight children, 16 grandchildren, and nine “greats.” Since her husband’s retirement as director of an international mission board, Adell continues in ministry to Mormons, as facilitator in the mission’s Punjabi Indian community, and as a humor speaker and writer, as well as full-time caretaker of her disabled husband. She was recently awarded an honorary PhD from a Baptist Seminary in Cote d’Voire, Africa, for her “many years of outstanding ministry and her large body of literary works.” [from the Amazon.com record for The Locket retrieved 8/3/17]
