About this title:

Synopsis: In 1957 Garnette Petersen and her husband, Sidney, left the comforts of their home in Duluth, Minnesota to serve as missionaries in Liberia, West Africa. In this book, based on years of journaling and personal letters to her mother, Garnette documents her experiences living in Liberia, 5,500 miles from friends and family. Garnette’s passion and motivation for her missionary work was to tell Liberian men and women about Jesus Christ. Sometimes she taught Bible lessons about Jesus. More often she lived Jesus by teaching life skills, caring for those in need, cooking, or by sewing a wedding dress. In this book Garnette tells the stories of her life as Ma Petersen while living in Liberia.

About the Author: Garnette Sykes Petersen Doty was born in Missoula, Montana in 1922. With her family she migrated to the Midwest eventually moving to Duluth, Minnesota where her father found employment and the family became active members of Duluth Gospel Tabernacle. In 1949 she married Sidney Petersen. Their children, Patricia and Richard, soon joined the family and in 1957 the family of four went to Liberia. Rebecca was born in 1961 following their first term as missionaries in Liberia. The Petersens served in Liberia, and various churches in the United States, until their retirement in 1984. Following their retirement they continued to serve churches in transition before returning to Duluth. Sidney died in 1995 following a lengthy illness. In 2003 Garnette married long-time Duluth resident Russell Doty. For each it was a second marriage, one that gave two octogenarians renewed life. In 2014 Russell died following a brief illness. Garnette lives in Duluth where she enjoys the fellowship of family and friends.
