The Noorlanders were called to Guatemala to provide the native Indians with hope. They found the people living on one meal a day consisting of corn tortillas. The Noorlanders went to work. Miracles happened.
This is their story, including a report by Elder Noorlander presented to the Presiding Bishopric of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Noorlanders returned to Guatemala in 1986, twelve years after they completed their mission. Sis. Noorlander described what they found on the last page of her photo journal:
“What a difference twelve years make. The co-op was exporting vegetables, the members had shoes on their feet, and they didn’t go to bed hungry anymore.”
“And now to you mature brothers and sisters: we need many, many more senior couples. To the faithful couples now serving or who have served in the past, we thank you for your faith and devotion to the gospel of Jesus Christ. You serve willingly and well and accomplish great good.”
