22 Gtajtsburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, Friday, May 25, 1973 Fanner Abingdon Residents Lead African Mission Life By GERALDINE BAUER (Staff Correspondent) ABIflKJDON — Rev. Marvin Wolford has seen the flag change four times in the 18 years he has been a missionary in Africa. He and his wife, Jean, former Abingdon residents, are stationed at Kapanga in the nation of Zaire. The country used to be known as the Republic of Congo and the Belgian Congo. The Rev. Mr. Wolford is a Methodist missionary who oversees two districts by counseling African pastors. He also does evangelism work in the villages. There are a total of 50 missionaries who are directed by afl African bishop; they work closely on all projects with African pastors. One of the present projects of the Wolfords is translating the Bible into the Uruund language. Mrs. Wolford proofreads all copy and types everything four times. She uses an electric typewriter which is run off a generator. The Rev. Mr. Wolford sneaks Swahili. Uruund and French. Mrs. Wolford speaks Uruund. THE WOLFORDS are the parents of three sons, Tom, 13, Steve, 11, and Andy 6. Tom was born in this country, but the other two boys were born in Zambia. The boys attend a boarding school for children of mission- aires 400 miles from home. Children are taught Latin and French on the grade school level during terms of 18 weeks each. Children go home twice a vear.. The weather in the area in which the Wolfords reside consists of two seasons—wet and dry. Temperatures always hover near the 80-degree mark. The wet season lasts for seven months of the year, and the remaining five months are the dry season. BECAUSE of the roads which turn into a quagmire during the rainy season, English Land Rovers with 4- wheel drive are used to get rbout. The Wolford family lives in a 2-bedroom brick home with mud plaster on the inside walls and a grass roof. Water comes from a nearby spring and is pumped by a gas or diesel engine. Use of electricity is limted to four hours a day — 6:30-10:30 p.m. Mrs. Wolford has a washer which runs on a gas engine, a gas stove and a refrigerator which operates on kerosene. Since there are no shops to buy clothing, much use is made of mail order catalogs. When the Wolfords returned to Africa three years ago, Mrs. Wolford bought clothing in sizes she thought would work for the period and packed them into barrels to be opened as needed. PORK AND beef are flown in from the U.S., and prices are comparable to what they are here. Vegetables and garden products can be bought from the local villagers. Supplies must be transported 650 miles, and that is reflected in the price of canned goods, which can run as high as $1.50 for a can of vegetables. The village of Kapanga has a population of 15,000. There is no industry, and gardening is the main source of income for villagers. A family's income from crops runs about 1150 a year. Villagers do not have electricity, and water must be carried from the nearest river which is several miles away. The task of carrying water is left to the women, and they often take clothing and do laundry during their daily trek for water. KAPANGA has a 240-bed hospital which is staffed by two missionary doctors. The Wolford family will spend the next year at Wilmore, Ky., where the Rev. Mr. Wolford will travel and speak. Mrs. Wolford plans to accompany him on some of his trips. The family decided to spend this year in the U.S. to give their boys a chance to become familiar with American life and schools. The Rev. Mr. Wolford is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Wolford. The Knoxville Community Action League has kicked-off a drive to raise funds for recreation facilities in Knoxville.
