his Pastor, Rev. W.J. Rolston, and received the Holy Spirit on August

minister in India. He became ill with tuberculosis and spent nine
months in hospital. He was miraculously healed of this disease. He
began his long lifetime Ministry in 1956 and became a fulltime Pastor
in New Denmark and pastored there until 1962. From New Denmark,
Everett and his wife Lois travelled to Corner Brook, Newfoundland to
begin forming an new church. They remained in Newfoundland until 1966.

It was in 1970, Reverend Everett Corcoran and his wife received their
Foreign Mission Appointment. They spent 29 years in total in
Missionary work. They were the first UPC Missionaries to the Islamic
country of Pakistan. Seven months after arriving in Pakistan, war
broke out between Pakistan and India, air raids, curfews, and bombs
falling. Evacuated to Iran for a few weeks, but back to Pakistan for
many years of Missionary endeavor. A bible school was established with
a group of young men graduating every year going into the harvest

In 1988, their work changed to regional and for the next eleven years
they travelled and evangelized in eleven countries; namely Sri Lanka,
India, Burma (Myanmar), Hong Kong, China, Philippines, Thailand,
