This summer we taught children in 5-Day Clubs the mission story from CEF Press about Ti-Fam. A story about a little girl who lived in Haiti, her father was a Voo-Doo witch doctor. I think Ti-Fam was a fictitious character but the missionaries who helped her actually lived.
Granny Holdeman retired as a nurse in Florida and joined her missionary daughter and son-in-law, the Turnbulls, to serve in Haiti as a missionary nurse. Her motto was, “Don’t retire, refire, because Jesus said, ‘occupy until I come.'” Evidently she liked to make peanut brittle because I found a postcard with her photo and recipe. I am sure she used the delicious vanilla that Haiti offers. Granny Holdeman served the mountain people of Haiti until her death in 1979.
