65 Years Ago
1 COLONY Miss Helen Neuenswander, daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. I.L. Neuenswander, left Monday for Guatemala, where she will be stationed for five years as a member of the Wycliffe Bible Translators, Inc. Her work will be twofold. She will have a medical clinic for the natives since there are no doctors or nurses in the village. As a translator she and co-workers will go among the various Indian tribes, learn their languages, devise their alphabets, make dictionaries, grammars and primers, teach reading and writing and, finally, translate the Bible into native languages.
