Faith Lutheran Church interim pastor Charles Jedele and his wife Ann are set to return to their home in Colorado on Monday.
The Rev. Jedele has been a Lutheran school principal for 40 years, and his wife an elementary school teacher. They have served as teachers in China and in Bethlehem, in the West Bank. This fall they will travel to Brazil to work in an orphanage, a school and a home for seniors.
Under the leadership of the Alaska Mission for Christ, the Jedeles have reached into the community and supported the men's prayer breakfast at Resurrection Lutheran Church; the Alaska Legislature with opening prayer; the Council of Churches Lenten Luncheons; Quilters for Lutheran World Relief; the Pioneers Home; and Bible schools in Sitka, Hoonah and Pelican.
Faith Lutheran Church, 2500 Sunset Drive, will host a reception for the Jedeles at noon on Easter Sunday. The community is invited to wish them Godspeed. For more information, call 789-7568.
