FeedbackGlenda: It was Bob Waldron, former director of Missions Resource Network. The top part of the article was cut off accidentally as we transitioned to a new website format a few years ago. I’ve found the original copy and fixed the errors. Thanks.Erik TryggestadChristian ChronicleOklahoma City, OK
