Return to Maranatha Missionaries and Back In Canada


This is Paul and Ruth Wallestad from Minnesota. They travel in their motor home to the ranch and are there for about six months each year. Paul (Pablo W) puts his skills as a contractor / builder to good use at the ranch, and is the planner, overseer, co-ordinator of workers and materials, and chief cement man on most projects on the ranch during his stay there. He oversees the general upkeep and physical needs of the ranch. He also trucks / buses the village people to a some of the bible studies and videos in the evenings. He's the one to call whenever anything breaks or is not working, from a broken water line to the ranch buses. Ruth is the chief birthday cake and sweets baker, as well as feeding the girls lunch weekly and hostess to the ladies' bible study on the ranch on Mondays. One of her main jobs is to keep Pablo W as healthy as possible and to help him co-ordinate the many things that he does on the ranch. The Wallestad's are also the "official grandparents" to the many children on the ranch.
