We are very thankful to the Lord for our wonderful heritage. Don’s parents were missionaries for many years. Don’s Dad, Hugh P. Jeter first arrived in Peru in 1932. His first wife died of tuberculosis contracted in Peru without having children. Later, Hugh married the wonderful woman who would be Don’s Mom. They moved to Cuba in 1941 where Hugh served as General Superintendent of the A/G until 1952. Don and his three brothers were all born in Havana, Cuba.
Don’s paternal grandfather was a Moody Bible Institute graduate and a Presbyterian home missionary. Together with his wife (a college graduate) they started a high school in northwestern Arkansas. Later, J.E. Jeter served as the first Principal of Southwestern Bible Institute when it was started by P.C. Nelson in Enid, Oklahoma, in 1927. His wife served on the first faculty.
In 1952, after serving in Cuba, Don’s Mom & Dad served in Spain and Morocco as missionaries before coming back to the U.S. and serving as the Chairman of the Missions Department and bookkeeper at Southwestern A/G University for 17 years. They later served for many years at the Southern Arizona Bible College. Dad Jeter was a much loved and respected Bible teacher at University Assembly of God in Waxahachie, Texas. He passed away in his home at the age of 93. Mom Jeter turned 100 in November 2011 and presently lives with Don’s oldest brother Stan and his wife Rhoda in Virginia Beach, Virgina.
