Kenneth and I (Doris) have enjoyed numerous trips to the Danvers and Erickson Districts and other places in Manitoba, to visit families and friends. I feel especially fortnnate to have been able to spend time where I grew up and at the 'home farm' which is still in family hands.

Our travels have been mainly visits to the Muuros (see below) as they were transferred by their mission. In October 1983, we went to Adana, Turkey. Together we toured a number of ancient sites that included five of the seven churches mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible. We went to Port Colborne in July 1989, where we had our first sight of the Weiland Canal and Niagara Falls. In September 1993, we went to London, England. During that trip, on September 29, we had the pleasure and priv­ ilege of walking through the 14 rooms in Buckingham Palace, which were open to the public. The charge was $11.00 Canadian. We also visited two of Kenneth's COUSInS in West Haddon, Northampton.

In July 1995, we attended my Winnipeg Normal School Rennion for the Jnne 1945 graduates. It was held at Portage la Prairie to be more accessible for those not familiar with Winnipeg.

In May 1997, we moved within the city of Red Deer, to Adult Commnnity Living. We enjoy being here and the work load has decreased.

We attended the Homecoming for the Rural

Mnnicipality of Lawrence in Manitoba in July 1997. It was held in the town of Rorketon. I had taught for the Rorketon School District in 1944.

In 1983, Ric and Darlene Muuro were living In Adana, southern Turkey, and working as Christian mISSIOn­ aries to the Muslim people living aronnd them. Their third and final child, David, was born there on a very hot summer day. David was a child who loved noise and enjoyed being lulled to sleep by the sonnd of the washing machine. The sonnds and smells of a middle eastern conntry were 'home' to him as his parents worked with converts from Islam to Christianity.
