|Adams, Ralph Quincy||fs 1964|
D.O.D 11/16/2007 - Ralph was born in Olustee, Oklahoma, but grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico. He attended Johnson Bible College in Kimberlin Heights, Tennessee, and received a B.A. degree, and a B.D. degree from Butler University, Indianapolis, Indiana, with continuing education at Cornell University, the Kennedy School of Missions, Phillips University in 1964, and Claremont Seminary.
Ralph’s first missionary assignment, with his wife Annamae, was to Paraguay, arriving in September of 1945 after intensive study of the Spanish language. They started the first rural evangelism work to be done in Paraguay by the Disciples. Upon their return in 1956 from furlough, Ralph started the actual work on a new church building. As pastor of the church, his evangelistic program and efforts in Coronel Oviedo were to challenge and train lives.
From 1973 to 1975, Ralph and Annamae went to Barquisimeto,Venezuela, where they served with the Evangelical Pentecostal Union of Venezuela (UEPV) in an experimental cooperative ministry of church and community development.
Ralph died November 16, 2007. He had four children, Virginia Katherine (Mrs. Clinton Biggs),
Walter Henry, Benjamin Harold and John Franklin.
