A missionary award

!George and Joyce Fitchett, founders of Rock Nest Ranch, were honoured this year for a lifetime of service as UIM missionaries.

UIM started construction on the lodge in 2004 and has stayed debt-free, building the lodge on donations with no effort to fund raise. “It was built by faith,” Joyce said. - Jackie Lieuwen
