Merlin and Karletta Wiebe returned Feb. 5 from a month-long visit to Ghana, Africa. They visited several missions where eight people are serving as missionaries. They said it was quite warm there. The natives do a variety of things for a living — farming, carpentry, and other trades. On Feb. 8, Kendall and Susie Wiebe and family, Aaron and Janessa Herbel, and Lela Wedel joined the Wiebes at the Anthony Wiebe home to hear about their trip.
