I'm in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, with my son, visiting my dad's widow. Last night was a big awards banquet at my parents' alma mater, John Brown University. One of the other guests came by our table to give us a CD of photos. He said he visited us in 1961 in Pasto, Colombia, and made a trip into the jungle with my dad. He gave us some amazing images from 50 years ago.
This was my family in 1961. Can you tell which is me?
We lived in the city of Pasto in the southern Andes of Colombia.
This is the Casa Evangélica, the church my dad helped pastor. We might have lived on the second floor. I'll have to ask my sisters.
My folks did some of their shopping in this market.
Ten years later at the Urbana 1970 missions conference, Bill ran into my dad and my oldest sister Christine.
