My family first met the Konnerups when they were in Denver, Colorado, just after Brother Konnerup was released from Ethopia. My father was in the Air Force, and he was just about to be Honorably Discharged. My father had been saved in the military, and he did not know of any Independent Baptist Churches in East Texas where we would be moving. He asked Missionary Konnerup if he knew of any churches in that area that he would recommend. Missionary Konnerup said that he had a supporting church in Center, Texas - Central Baptist Church pastored by Brother Roy Wallace. My parents are still very active members of that church. Brother Wallace has gone to heaven. I am so thankful for a missionary pointing my family to a good church! In 1978, the Konnerups moved to Kenya. For the last 34 years, they have faithfully served the Lord on that mission field!
