Gwen Pierce and her late husband George have served as missionaries in Southeast Asia for many years, Gwen is now coming into retirement status, just waiting for a flight out to Ireland to take her sister-in-law Betty Pierce and herself back to the West. They are just waiting on the airline they wish to travel with to start flying again…on Gwen’s part there is no rush to leave, she is ready to go as the Lord leads. Currently, Gwen is visiting her family in their village for a few weeks. Richard and Wendy Rees, Megan, Caleb, Rachel and Karis, live among the Pwo Karen people group.

Normally, Gwen lives with her sister-in-law in a different province in the northeast. Betty and her co-worker (now retired) worked with the Nya Kurr people group. She plans to go back there in early September.
