He was an ideal student

By Adam

I knew Pete off and on when he was growing up. One year we even built a house together in the Philippines, Pete, his dad, and I. We basically transformed a large two or three room hut into a seven-bedroom house. It took us eleven months to do it, but... (read more)

The things we most appreciated …

By Lorie (29)

Shortly before Pete and Nicole (Elixcia) left our Home to move to the mission field, we had an appreciation party for them. For the occasion, people in our Home wrote up some short paragraphs expressing how we felt about them, which we then either... (read more)
