After pastoring for a number of years in Kansas, myself, my wife Shirley, and our three small children found ourselves in South Africa in 1966 as missionaries in Port Shepstone, South Africa.

One of the very first persons we met was a young, very gifted, black lady by the name of Maggie. She was sent to us to be a household helper. From the very beginning there was a bond of love that began and has lasted for fifty-one years and only grows stronger with the years.

It was quite a culture shock living among the Black, Indian, and White since we had never lived outside of America. The Apartheid was in effect which meant there were racial segregation and four different language dialects. Maggie was born and raised in South Africa and was fluent in all four dialects which helped us in many ways.
