John and Ethel Pherson are surrounded with lots of activity these days. On Nov. 23, they welcomed home from South Africa their son, Kit, his wife, Joy, and their grandchildren, Diane, Esther, David and Carla.
Kit and his family have been serving in South Africa as missionaries for 20 years, where they have established churches that are now under the leadership of men whom they were privileged to lead to the Lord and train for leadership. The quote from Scripture, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant," appropriately applies to them.

Former resident Mike Petersen and his family are missionaries in Poland. Each year at Christmas they visit local orphanages and give gifts to as many as possible. Their goal this year is to prepare gifts for 350 children.
One thing they like to put in the gift bags for the teen-age girls are samples of perfume. If any of you neighbors have some and would like to share, I would be happy to mail them. Let me know.
