Update your Profile with Then and Now photos, and Share Your Best Mission Pics!  To help assist our fading memories, please post 'then' and if possible, 'now' photos to your individual profile-thanks to those who have done so already. Additionally, we know you have (hundreds of) mission slides, and if you've digitized them, we invite you to share your absolute favorites by uploading them to the 'Photos' gallery on your individual RM Profile. We humbly request (require, really) you add captions to identify the young folks & locations in the photos-see FAQs for how-to. Thanks to all who have already shared their pics, and if you didn't add identifying captions, yoroshiku & onegai. (see Clark Shurtz' profile for a nice example-scroll to bottom of his profile to view). If you're not too tech savvy and want hands-on assistance, Contact Us.
