Jennie and Andrew Mitchell, Missionaries

I knew that many in my mother's family were preachers, but I really didn't know about the great numbers of missionaries who have served all over the world. This video features Jennie and Andrew Mitchell, their family, and the Go Ye Fellowship, a missionary sending organization founded in California in 1932.

Below the video is Andrew Mitchell's obituary, which tells us that all six of his children were ministers, and five of them were foreign missionaries.

If you would like to see some of the inspirational plaques he designed, go to
