Bishop Laurie Haller of the UM Iowa Conference recently interviewed our missionaries, Jane and Larry Kies. Below is an excerpt of the article, “Everywhere to Everywhere.”
“Jane, who is British but grew up mostly in southern Africa, and Larry, who is originally from Iowa, have always looked forward to providing hospitality for United Methodists from Larry’s home state. In 2018, we enjoyed a wonderful tour of the Africa University Farm, where Larry served as the Technical Advisor for many years. Larry also led DS Paul Wilcox, Pastor Ben Wedeking, and me on a second climb up Mt. Chiremba.”
