Staff Person: Maury York
Description: Willard and Daisy Rowe of Franklin County, North Carolina, established the Evangelical Baptist Mission in 1960. They carried out missionary work in Franklin County and in Guatemala for more than 45 years. They engaged in personal witnessing, established churches, wrote newspaper columns in English and Spanish, sponsored Bible courses through correspondence, and ministered to migrant workers. In 1963, they began radio broadcasts throughout Central America and Mexico. During some of their time in Guatemala, the Rowes faced resistance from the Catholic Church and dangers associated with political unrest. This poster, published ca. 1977, highlights some of their work.
