In 1940 she responded to a missionary call and left for Nigeria, West Africa. For 42 years she taught many hundreds in Bible Schools and women's classes, training pastors and women for effective evangelism and the building of the Church.

Retiring to Seattle in December 1982, she became active in Calvary Temple (Calvary Christian Assembly) teaching, overseeing an ICI Bible Correspondence ministry, leading Bible studies, leading a women's ministry and missionary group, prayer ministry and much more. She continued in active ministry until about 2009 when, due to health issues, she moved to Crista Care Center. Even then, her prayer ministry continued until her death.

Lillian's favorite Bible verse, the Scripture God used to give her a missionary call

"I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron. And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me."
- Isaiah 45:2-4 (KJV) -
