She said the whole family went snorkeling and enjoyed that a lot. Neill had been in Hawaii when he was in the Marines. It was the first trip there for the rest of the family.

Pastor and Mrs. Howard Gering Return from Missionary Travels Pastor and Mrs. Howard Gering of Bethel Church, 1405 West Main St. Monroe, have just returned from an extended missionary tour in Haiti in the West Indies and the East Coast of the United States. He said, it was during this journey that the Bible Institute was established. Traveling with Pastor Gering was Mr. Mike Zwadlo of Bethel Church and Mr. Henry Wiebe of Kelowna, B.C., Canada, who will remain in Haiti as missionaries to work in the field of Haiti. Arriving in Haiti in the first part of March, to meet with leaders of the indigenous church in a General Conference, they were able to meet with many ministers at that time. Pastor Gering was also invited by the Minister of Religion of Haiti, to share his vision and plans with him. It was at this time that the Board of Trustees were established for the Insitute and certain guidelines were established concerning the work of the Mission. Bethel Church's participation in this field is relatively new (since 1975), when several indig- enous church groups had invited them to share in the effort there. Now, with two missionaries added, the work continues to grow. A similar mission effort has been established in Jamaica as well, according to Pastor Gering. Returning to Miami on the March 23, Pastor and Mrs. Gering were in special services with Dr. J. Lawton Smith, then proceeded to BainbVidge, Georgia to be with old friends, the J. Clay Murphey's. Their new home was ded- icated, and two very lovely services were conducted while in Georgia. Then they returned to Miami to be with Dr. and Mrs. Smith before flying to Cleveland, Ohio, meeting with the Frasier family, part of their congregation in Indonesia, as well as Mr. and Mrs. N.H. Lundberg. Leaving Cleveland on April 2, they traveled to Minneapo- lis-St. Paul, Minn., where they were met by Mr. David Foster, the brother of Mrs. Gering. A very pleasant five days were spent with his family; and where they attended the services in the assembly on Palm Sunday. They return- ed to Seattle on April 6. Pastor and Mrs. Gering will be showing special slides of Haiti and their travels later this month. The date and time will be announced later, and everyone is cordially invited to attend this showing of the field of Haiti.
