Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Came back to USA and completed seminary training in Louisville, KY. Married Lynna Miller in 1971. We have two children and four grandchildren. Have been Pastor for 35 years and have been serving College Avenue Presbyterian Church for 30 years.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Best experience in my life. Gave a great sensitivity to cultural diversity and the importance of language of native populations.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Hope you have had a great life upon your return. I returned for a visit and project in 2000 and met some of the homecraft workers who had been an important part of the clinic. The people of Malawi are still the kind people I remember from 40 years ago and their lives should challenge all of us to do more for economic justice, human rights and fare trade.
