They have had the responsibility for the mental health and psychological wellbeing of maybe 2,000 missionaries in the Northwest South America Area. They traveled throughout Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia , Peru, and Venezuela. This has been a challenging and rewarding assignment for them. It was not an easy one as the language presented some challenges in traveling. Both of them have worked harder than anyone I know to stay in the missionfield battling ailments and health related issues. We admire them so much for their service and desire to fulfill their missions. They have been examples to us all for their faith, dedication, and endurance.
We miss them as our friends. They wanted to meet our kids who were traveling to Peru early in August but they needed to be in Colombia. We look forward to that evening of conversation and dinner when we return home.
Here's to you our friends and fellow missionaries! We miss you and our prayers remain with you.
