Deaths-Henry-Peter-TeigrobHenry accepted Jesus as Saviour at 15. In 1961, he, Anne and 6 children travelled to Costa Rica to begin a life of service. The family also served the Maya, Mennonite and Spanish people of Belize and Mexico. Henry’s trust and obedience to God shined through the way he treated people with respect and his enjoyment of life. Beside raising a family of 10 and travelling extensively as pastor and missionary, Henry learned to fly, play the omniharp and trumpet, and speak French. He wrote poetry celebrating life, his family and God, and published a book about God’s faithfulness in his life. Henry was God-fearing, visionary, humble, grateful and joyful. In 2012 Henry and Anne moved to Chilliwack, B.C.
