Help Prepare a Home for the Aufrances in the United States
There is a practical way that you and/or your church can come alongside Dave and Cindy Aufrance as they prepare to retire from the mission field. We invite you to help with the renovation of the home they have purchased beside their daughter and son-in-law’s house near Columbus, Ohio. You may bring workers to help with the hands-on work or contribute financial gifts to help cover costs. Lots of different skill levels are needed. The goal is to complete our portion of this project by August 6th when they return to the U.S. Please contact Rick or Joyce Sams for more information at 330-206-1968 or at  rsams53@gmail.com . Thank you!
Our love and prayers for former pastor Rodney and Julie Powell (Cornerstone Saxapahaw) with the passing of Julie's mother, Lola Lavera Pike, on June 23, 2020.
