Veteran career missionaries Gordon and Glenda Bloodworth are grateful to have been serving in Africa for 42 years! They love their beautiful home, and enjoyed a good Christmas.
Of special enjoyment is one of their daughters, Laura, who decorated the Christmas tree. Laura is disabled and the decorating gets a bit heavy on the bottom of the tree, as she can only reach so far, but Gordon fixes what she cannot reach. Laura does well, but her muscles continue to weaken and she has much difficulty walking with her walking frame. Thankfully, Laura can still care for herself somewhat, and is healthy and strong.
The Bloodworths’ service in Africa has spanned various positions: Ghana as education director; missionary teachers in South Africa; administrative assistant and representative in Zaire; field representative in Africa/French-speaking; education director, regional Bible school director, and missionary in Kenya.
Last year provided some exciting events, such as the graduation at Discipleship College in Eldoret, Kenya. Humanitarian efforts prepared cushions for wheelchair patients. The Bloodworths are looking forward to 2017 in anticipation of what God is going to do … their hearts’ desire is to be found faithful to the cause of Jesus Christ.
