Merritt Warren

(1890-1970). Missionary to the Far East. A native of Iowa, he was one of the first students to attend Pacific Union College. He and his wife, Wilma Lane Landis Warren, were the first foreign missionaries from that school. After their marriage in 1913, they were sent to China, where they labored as pioneers for 36 years in the west, central, and northwest sections. Elder Warren estimated that he walked a total of 25,000 miles (40,000 kilometers), carrying with him portions of the Scriptures, which he read as he walked, thus completing the reading of the Bible each year. Later the Warrens served for six years in the Philippines and for five years in Taiwan, where they had charge of the Voice of Prophecy.
