Time to Honour

GWAs our friend’s last days of work were completed, no one celebrated all the years of service given,” writes missionary Ruth Anna Dana.

“Sadly, honouring the older members happens less, and people are not taking time for listening to them speak wisdom.”

In another of our news stories, missionary Arlyn VanEnns honours the memory of his friend George Wanderingspirit (pictured here) and writes: “George and Mary were the first believers baptized in the entire history of their district.”
