During the annual Maranatha Volunteers International Convention on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011, in Tualatin, Ore., Garwin McNeilus, businessman, paid special tribute to a Northwest project to build church and school structures in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The project was completed near the site where Jere Patzer, former North Pacific Union Conference president, preached a series of evangelistic meetings in 1998. A dedicatory plaque in honor of Patzer will be placed at the site. Sue Patzer, along with other Northwest leaders, was in Zimbabwe through the middle of October to conduct an evangelistic series and oversee completion of the project.
