You may contact Sandra Naugle at the email below for  more information.

UPDATE ON WORDS OF LIFE

      We are thankful to announce that Words of Life has received enough one time donations and monthly donations to cover the current expenses.  God moved supporters  to contribute in various ways and we are very thankful. Please pray with us about an opportunity that has been presented to the Board that is being considered and the decision will be made at their next meeting.

        The Lilly Dale Church of Christ continues to search for a full-time minister for our congregation. There are no upper or lower age or experience requirements. The church leaders are looking for the one who is called to minister to the congregation at Lilly Dale.    For further information please contact one of the Elders:

Goin' Fishing Ministries

     Plans are still in place for Mike Abbott to take the leadership of GFM as our new Director, but the schedule has been temporarily delayed.  A minimal amount of legal paperwork is necessary for us to move our office from Indiana to Louisiana.  All of our records are in order but filing and completing the paperwork process is taking much longer than we anticipated.  We are hopeful that this will all be wrapped up by the end of this year.
    Meanwhile, you may continue to send your gifts to the same mailing address with confidence. 

P O BOX 2474  CLARKSVILLE IN 47131.   We promise to notify our givers when we make the change to a new address.
     Also, please note that Mike Abbott and Paul Kitzmiller will soon be arriving home from their trip to Zimbabwe, August 1-30,  We hope to have a report from them to put in the September or October Word&Work.

     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. We will update this information as we get word.

       Larry Miles and Dale Garrett are planning a trip to Zimbabwe on November 1st. The plan is to be in Zimbabwe for four Sundays.  This from Larry Miles:  I want to thank everyone who has donated to the mission trip to Zimbabwe. As you know, Bro. Dale Garrett and I were planning to go to Zimbabwe in the Spring of 2020 to visit churches and individuals  in the work there. We were going to be involved in teaching and preaching to uplift our African brethren.  But, because of the Covid 19 outbreak, we had to put the trip on hold. Bro. Dale and I will be making this trip, leaving on November 1st. We plan to stay for 4 Sundays.  If you would like to support this trip you may send donations to: Hamburg Church of Christ, Attn: Dana Stone, 8921 Newberry Road, Sellersburg, IN. 47172. Make check out to the church and indicate on the check that it is for ‘African Mission Trip’. (For Larry Miles) Please be in prayer for these two as they teach and preach in Zimbabwe.

       Southeastern Christian Education Corporation met on Saturday following the Fellowship.  More information regarding this group will come at a later date.  It 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
