     Lord willing, Mike Abbott will soon take the leadership of GFM as our new Director.  Much progress has been made in moving our operations from Indiana to Louisiana but there are a few steps remaining.  We are hopeful that we can be up and running with our new office by the first of the year.  Please watch for announcements concerning our new mailing address.  Meanwhile, you may continue to send your gifts to our current mailing address with confidence:  P O BOX 2474  CLARKSVILLE IN 47131.
Editor’s Note: Please continue to pray for the Christians in Ukraine.  Those that we know have so far been safe, though many of them lost their homes and had to relocate. Those remaining continue to hold church services where possible and spread the Word of God and help others with food and supplies as they are able.  Missile attacks in the west continu to cause widespread damage to the electrical grid as well as damaging buildings and killing citizens.  For many, no electricity means no heat.  This is a very serious problem as the cold weather months are fast approaching

PLEASE BE PRAYING FOR THE 2023 LADIES RETREAT.  WE WILL SOON BE SENDING OUT MORE INFORMATION. We have not had a Ladies Retreat since 2019 due to Covid and Kavanaugh having closed permanently. We are so excited about this camp in New Albany, IN.   It is just up the hill from Cherry St. Church of Christ. It is Silver Heights Camp and Retreat Center.  There is a lovely large building with a very nice kitchen for our ‘come together’ times and several sleep cottages.  We are so thankful to have found this place to hold the 2023 Ladies Retreat. We pray God will bless us with many ladies desiring to attend.  This will be our 30th Ladies Retreat even though we skipped the three years.  If you would like to see the facility the website is:  https://www.silverheights.org/facilities/.  Note: If you visit the website, none of us will have to occupy a top bunk!  We have reserved Silver Heights for Sept. 29-30, 2023.  We will be using email to send more information out to the ladies whose email addresses we have and if you have never attended, please consider coming.  Anyone who attended in the past will tell you what a lovely time we have with Spiritual encouragement, prayer time, fellowship, and food. We will start at 6 pm on Friday evening with a pitch in supper and program.  We will end at 2 pm on Saturday so those from out of town can get home before dark.  Please spread the word and be praying about this event and pray for the Committee as we begin to plan.  We know it is now 9 months away but it is not too early to put it on your calendar and be praying.

       Southeastern Christian Education Corporation was established after Southeastern Christian College in Winchester, KY, closed, in order to use the funds from the sale of the property to the city. The funds are used for grants to eligible students to help cover the cost of a Christian college education.  Donations are accepted and should be sent to SCEC, 113 East Poplar St., Harrodsburg, KY 40330

     November 2022 Zimbabwe Mission Trip:. In November 2022, Dale Garrett & I went to Zimbabwe. We had planned to go in 2020, but could not go because of Covid 19.  For a report of the mission trip, please click here. We had a successful mission trip.  I, (Larry Miles) am going to various churches to show a PowerPoint Presentation.  If you would like me  to come, please contact we at larrymiles1952@gmail.com.  Here is a list  of the locations I will be at in the next 2 months.

That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
