I was only three years old when my oldest sister Betty had her first son, Harold Jr.Known in our family as "young Harold," he was always a delight to be around. He was only eight when Harold Sr. bought him a new Farmall Cub, and like his father he enjoyed walking around the 250 acre family farm.
I left for boarding school at age 15 to begin my training as a missionary, but saw Harold during summer holidays. I remember when my sister Betty told me that Harold had met a beautiful young singer from Bountiful,Utah, and they were planning to get married.
How the years slip by. I have spent the last 45 years as President of Worldwide Faith Missions, building orphanages and churches throughout India and the Far East, where I now reside and have my office.
