Guest Speakers: Missionaries Don & Maryjane Westra
Don & Maryjane always wanted to experience another culture, so when their youngest daughter turned 18 they started making plans to move abroad. In 2009 they were offered an assignment to Zimbabwe from Global Ministries, through the United Church of Christ. Don did projects such as clean water, techology and agriculture. Maryjane did hospital administration and child welfare. All of their work is designed with an eye toward long-term development.
Being long time Rotarians, Don and Maryjane helped to Charter a club in Chipinge, Zimbabwe, where Maryjane served as President for a year. In 2013 they had to leave Zimbabwe and were assigned to Honduras where they work with vocational education for at-risk youth. They are members of Villa Real Club in Tegucigulpa, Honduras. They are not sure where there next assignment will take them or when they will retire. Don is a mechanical engineer and Maryjane is a social worker. They have 8 children and 5 grandchildren all (except 1) live in Minnesota and help run the family business and family cabin.
