Meet Ray and Anna's
Family and Friends

Ray and Anna have four sons:

He and Cheryl then taught high school for one year in Chittagong, Bangladesh. Just days before returning to Canada, he suffered a serious accident and is now recovering at home in London, Ontario. He is now studying for a Master of Theological Studies degree at Huron University College . Click on the button for his personal site.

Married to Cheryl Wiseman (nee Cheryl Springle), a piano teacher and accompanist. She returned to her work in London after coming home from Bangladesh.


Brian Wiseman who works for St. Joseph's Healthcare, Hamilton Ontario, in Vocational Rehabilitation. If you push the button, you will get his place of work.

Married to Joan Wiseman (nee Joan Konieczny) who works as a Customer Service Representative with the Ministry of Community and Social Services (ODSP). Children: James, Jared, Bethany.

SAPIT  QUI  DEO  SAPIT.
The historic Wiseman family motto: He is wise who is wise through God.

Meet Some of Ray's Fellow Writers



Click on the button to go to the "Links" page where you can access the web pages of the following writers.


N.J. Lindquist (Nancy) has been a good friend in the writing community since we met at a God Uses Ink conference a few years ago. We have frequently critiqued each other's material prior to publication. She has published a number of youth novels, a mystery, . . . well why not visit her site?

Eric E. Wright I have known for some time, but I really got to know him by reading his book Through a Country Window. Eric has worked in Asia and Ontario as a teacher, pastor, freelance writer, and seminary professor. Click on the button to begin your journey to his site.

Mark Clayton, Anna's nephew, is a copywriter with over 30 years experience working with charities and non-profits. He has worked for Partners International. That made him my editor for A Bridge to the Mountain. Have a look at his web site.

Linda Hall's book Sadie's Song is a must read for people in pastoral or counselling ministry--even if they claim not to read novels! It gives a reader insight into abuse within the church, and becomes a tool to use with someone in abusive circumstances. Check Linda's site for it and other great books by this award-winning author.

Marcia Lee Laycock writes a weekly column, "The Spur." You can read it at her website or order her book, The Spur of the Moment. I first met Marcia at an Inscribe conference in Edmonton. She lives in Alberta about 100 km from where I grew up--and she attended the same college. Small world!

Donna Mann lives in Elora, near Fergus. We first met at a God Uses Ink Christian writers conference in Guelph. God has gifted Donna in many ways--as a pastor, a writer, and a grief councillor. Go to her web site to check out her newest book, WinterGrief.

Elma Schemenauer I first met in college. When we met again years later we didn't recognize each other. Why not? Women often change their last names and men go bald and grow beards. Elma has written more books than many people have read. Go to her web site and count them!

Angelina Fast-Vlaar won the First-Time Canadian Christian Author Award for her non-fiction manuscript Seven Angels for Seven Days: A Widow's Journey (June 2004). Have a look at her web site to learn about her other writing activities.

Kimberly Payne and I worked with a third writer to deliver a newspaper column-writing seminar at the November 2004 Write! Toronto conference. Check out her web site to stay fit.

Lorry Lutz and I met in South Africa as fellow missionaries in the 1970s. She and her husband, Alan, and family returned to the USA at about the same time we relocated to Canada. Our contact with them continued when they also associated with Partners International. Have a look at her blog.




Scroll down for information on Ray and Anna's church: St. Andrews Presbyterian Church.



Early in 2006 we began attending St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. When we heard of the exciting things happening at St. Andrew's, we went for a visit, began attending, and soon decided to become members. We had attended Lakeside Church in Guelph for years, but got tired of the drive into Guelph. One little click on the button will take you to the St. Andrew's site.
