A Knock at the Door

June 01, 2010 / Carol Bovee

A smiling woman opened the door in response to our knock and swept us into her little home in Trujillo, Peru. When she learned we were visiting from North America, her eyebrows went up. With astonishment she turned to me and asked, "Then why are you here in my humble home?"

Georgiana, a local church member who accompanied us, told us Gabriella had been baptized a year before but had not been back to church since.

June 01, 2010 / Nessy Pittau

On page 9 in the Alaska section of the May GLEANER, the article titled "Truth 4 Youth in Gambell" was incorrectly edited to state "Mike Evans and Fran Hansen will soon occupy the Gambell parsonage ..." The original from the author correctly stated "Mike and Fran Hansen" would be the occupants. We hope both Mike Evans and Mike Hansen, as well as author Melvin Matthews, can now breathe a sigh of relief. We apologize for the confusion.
