1956

Friday a husband/wife translation team returned to the mission center from
their last visit to the village where they've been working. They came to
Ukarumpa in 1956 when there were only a few people here. The husband joked
that when they arrived in '56 1/2 the missionaries came to greet them and
the other guy was busy.

School and work came to a halt Friday morning as many men, women, and
children from the center gathered for a surprise ceremony to honor them.
This couple have dedicated 53 years of their lives to bring the Bible to
people who don't have it in their language.
