Dr. Edward and Lehia Paauwe retired in 2013 after faithful service for 42 years in various countries and positions. Between 1970 and 2013, the Paauwes served at five churches, five seminaries or colleges, two mission boards, and in four countries. Their unwavering service has undoubtedly spread the gospel truly around the world. Their home is now in South Australia, as they settled near one of their children. They continue to serve as opportunities and ability allows, speaking at conferences and churches, as well as teaching at seminaries. Please remember the Paauwes in prayer as faithful saints of God.
