THANK YOU:  What a great turnout for the International Mission Study last Sunday evening.  You braved the cold weather and joined us for a great time of food, fun, and fellowship.  Thanks to Helen Cox for presenting the study on Russia, and to those who pitched in and helped with set-up, and last minute details for dinner.  A great time was had by all.  This may become an annual “Soup Dinner” for WMU International Mission Study.
