Morris, Maurice & Glenda

missionary

Bio:

Though they have been part of World Indigenous Missions since 1987, Maurice and Glenda Morris do not do evan­ge­lism, church plant­i­ng or oth­er work typ­i­cal of mis­sion­ar­ies. Their field is the min­istry of helps. Maurice’s mechan­i­cal abil­i­ty keeps him con­stant­ly in demand, while Glenda’s forte is keep­ing the WIM office run­ning and min­is­ter­ing to the mis­sion­ar­ies’ needs.
