Memorial to Dale Marshall

DALE MARSHALL 13 October, 1936  to 6 June, 2014 It was with great sadness that we receive recent news of the death of Dale Marshall in Boise, Idaho.  Dale was a missionary from 1966-2009 in Zimbabwe, Africa.  Dale and his wife Linda and 3 children came to Rhodesia by ship in 1966 and first settled at Chidamoyo.  He worked with his classmates from Bible College, Ziden and Helen Nutt and his first job was helping to build Chidamoyo Christian Hospital.  He built the old chapel building, which we remodeled and expanded in 2005.  After 6 months at Chidamoyo they moved to Chinhoyi to begin a work with African evangelists that covered from the northern most area of Zimbabwe into Mozambique and down into Gokwe district south of Chinhoyi and then west all the way to the Zambia boarder in the town of Kariba.
