Photos of Mary Hoover of Sibu

Recently Velvet Douglas (Grand daughter Missionary Pykett) got in touch with me and we have been corresponded  a few times.

Praise God for the Internet.

Yesterday she sent  two lovely photos of our dearly beloved Mary Hoover and Rev James Hoover to Meng Lei and I .

Now the Methodist Archives of Sibu would have two more photos..Just to share these with you...
thanks Velvet for "discovering" me.....

Pray that one day Velvet (UK) will be visiting Sarawak.

Have a great day!!
