From my earliest childhood the Baynes, the Goforth, and Homewood have been part of my life -- an inspiration and a shining example of Christian service. I recall Alf discussing with my parents his intention to marry Margaret. What a wonderful choice! She has been a support and partner in the wonderful work that God has accomplished through their long ministry. We will miss her gentle presence but we are thankful that her example lives on for the thousands of people she has touched.
Was surprised to read of Margaret's passing in the Victoria paper this morning. I grew up with Alf Bayne in Penticton and supported his early work with the Goforth and Homewood. I remember the reception at the church when he brought his 'new bride' there.
I enjoyed spending time with them in Campbell River and at Homewood when I was a staff representative with World Vision. My prayers with Alf all family
