Elder Sowards' Trainer, Anan Eldridge

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
Anan served as mission president in Thailand 15 years ago with his 1st wife Margaret, now deceased. They are loved and remembered by so many. Several Church leaders in Thailand today
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.
