obit Anne Peters NightingaleAnne and David served under MB Mission in Quito, Ecuador, starting HCJB’s (now Reach Beyond) German radio program. They worked in Joinville and Blumenau, Brazil, with the German Association of MB Churches. Anne also ministered alongside David in churches in Mountain Lake, Minn.; Virgil, Ont.; Vauxhall, Alta.; and Hepburn, Sask. They retired to Vancouver Island and later to Chilliwack, B.C. Despite the difficulties, Anne called missionary work “a privilege.” She encouraged all her children to pursue their passions. Her caring spirit was evident as she filled her home with photos of her grandchildren, so she could see them at all times. Anne was always singing hymns as she tended her garden or home. She loved reading her Bible and praying for each child, grandchild and great-grandchild.
