|Elder Sowards with Anan|
We were privileged to spend time with Elder Sowards' trainer from 40+ years ago, Anan Eldridge. Anan was the first Thai male baptized in Thailand. Then he was adopted by an American family (where the name Eldridge comes from) and after coming to America with them, he was sent on a mission to Thailand. He and his lovely wife Rozella live in Las Vegas, Nevada where he is a jeweler and Rozella is a banker.
|Rozella and Anan|
served with him/and as missionaries under Anan's leadership.
He has been a good friend of ours through the years and appreciate that he has kept in contact with us, even while we are serving in Thailand.
