New Hope Lutheran Church in Laurie has been host to two China missionaries.
Peter Snyder and his wife, Lauren, visited New Hope in September and Peter shared many of his 30-year experiences in China and Haiti.
He is a professor, minister, founder of 41 schools abroad, author of many books and devotionals, musician and speaks 4 languages.
Peter and Lauren returned to China in late September to teach at an underground college in the city and will be traveling Central China and ultimately serving other SE Asian countries training pastors and missionaries.
Rick Bell, his wife, Jennifer, and three children were guests at New Hope on Oct. 6. Rick is a writer, speaker, teacher and minister and served in China for 18 years.
He partnered with Snyder during several periods during those years. He and his family will remain in the states with short trips back to China periodically.
