Lance and Arnie were both baptized on the same day, 23rd January
1982, at a Circuit Assembly in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.
They served as continuous Auxiliary Pioneers for 3½
years, then Arnie went Regular. After about 2 years, she got
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and was forced to give up pioneering
in 1989. They were in the Gatton Congregation for 16 years
until it split on May 1st, 1996, and then supported the newly-formed
Laidley Congregation. By 2004 Arnie's health had improved
enough that the couple moved in July 2004 to serve where was
a greater need in Tully, tropical north Queensland, Australia.
