AMONG FRIENDS
With Robert Prater

     I am excited once again to have another opportunity to participate in a mission trip to Ukraine.   The dates for the trip are October 31-November 9. The campaign will be centered around providing for congregational development through a seminar for preachers and other church leaders in the Ukraine just like my previous trip in 2009.  This seminar will once again take place in the city of Kramatorsk, a province of Donetsk. 

    The teaching seminar will be, “Fix Your Eyes on Jesus.”  I will have the opportunity to teach five classes/lectures during the seminar.  Additionally we will have the opportunity to preach in our visits to other congregations in Artemovsk and Konstantinovka. These congregations were planted 12 years ago on a mission trip by the South College congregation in Tahlequah, OK.  We hope to be able to visit once again an orphanage and boarding school in Konstantinovka which is supported by the church there.

    The trip will be led by David Deffenbaugh (former preacher in Tahlequah, and recently new preacher at Center Hill church in Paragould, AR), Tim Watts (deacon at South College/Tahlequah), Richard Chambers (preacher at 26th & Connecticut in Joplin), and Tyrel Hatfield (youth and family minister at South College in Tahlequah). 

    THANK YOU - I want to say how deeply thankful I am first of all to the Central elders for once again allowing me to be away during this time and for the support they have given me.  Secondly I am so incredibly thankful by all those members who helped contribute toward this campaign trip. I still have some additional support funds to raise, but because of your tremendous generosity I will once again be able to make this mission trip.  This is just another reason why I greatly love my Central family. 

     Friends, always remember, your life makes a difference—either for good or for bad.  Live with passion for the spiritual, and your life will make a great difference for good!
