Bill and Betty Work
Betty was raised in Erskine, Alberta, Canada. After receiving her Certified Nursing Aid Certificate she attended Briercrest Bible Institute. Bill was raised in Pennsylvania and graduated from Prairie Bible Institute.
We met and married in Bolivia, South America where we served for forty-two years. Our purpose has been to honor Christ by helping people to know Him, grow in Him and share His message.
We served in La Paz, Cochabamba and the high plateau. Our ministries included: working with government officials, church planting, guest house hostess, director of Bible Correspondence Courses, secretary for the Area Director, Bible studies for couples, Area Secretary, Bible Seminary and Bible Institute teaching and Theological Education by Extension. Bill served as Area Secretary and director of the Quillacollo Bible Institute.
We are now retired and live in the SIM Retirement Village in Sebring, Florida. We teach a Good News Club and serve in a church. Bill is chairman of the Missions Committee and we help with outreach, AWANA and a Hispanic group. At the village we serve on the Social Committee.
Our children were born and raised in Bolivia. David attended LeTourneau College and lives in Alexandria, Virginia. Melody attended Prairie Bible College. She served eleven years with SIM in Bolivia and now lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
