Florence Jeannette Birnie-Visscher Miller
Florence was born on February 27, 1936, in Krugersdorp, South Africa, to Epke and Kees Birnie-Visscher. Her parents were from the Netherlands and were in the diplomatic service. Florence grew up in South Africa and the Belgian Congo.
Florence found the Teachings of the Ascended Masters in 1968, while living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The minute she saw photographs of Mark and Elizabeth Prophet, she recognized them as true Messengers of God.
Florence was a pillar of strength and inspiration to all who knew her, always bringing self-discipline, creativity, dedication and a spirit of joy to her work.
She was just an incredible Light—a magnificent devotee not only of the Teachings but of the Messengers personally. Helping them to fulfill their role was her greatest joy. She thrived on challenges…and always kept such poise through any difficult situation. It was a wonderful thing to behold….She had that flame of accomplishment and victory and moving ahead. She was balanced, beautiful,…a great servant of Light. The fervor of her dedication to the cause of world freedom and enlightenment set a high standard for all to emulate. Her devotion to God was a rare gift. It told me she had touched the hem of Christ's garment….She was the kind of person who in the midst of many responsibilities would always respond spontaneously with her heart to people's personal problems or any situation that would crop up in the course of the day….”—N.T. Miller
The ascended master Saint Germain gave Florence the title Lady Kristine on July 5, 1970 at La Tourelle. Elizabeth Clare Prophet revealed that Florence was embodied as the sixteenth-century Catholic mystic Saint Teresa of Avila. She is the patroness of Holland.
Florence made her ascension on September 20, 1979.
