55 Years Later

On Friday April 4, David and Elizabeth Tolman celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. Elizabeth was in Durango teaching at a women's retreat, while David was at home in Tepic, but I'm told they are planning to go out for dinner when she returns...

Shortly after their marriage in 1953, they left to serve as missionaries in South Africa. They returned several years later with "three and a half children" as Elizabeth describes it, and settled in Ontario, Canada. In 1976 they moved permanently to Mexico with their three youngest children. They founded Seedtime and Harvest Ministries, and now, over 30 years later, they are still together and active in service, along with 2 of their sons and their families.
Who knows what the next 55 years will hold?
