     Additional area members:

Mission activities included construction, Bible school, a food ministry, assistance at area clinics, school supplies & Spanish books & Bibles.  Fund raising through Coins for Christ (collected the last Sunday of each month) and special events (such as a Womanless Beauty Pageant and a Hee Haw Night ) provided money for the mission activities plus transportation interpreters, security and dorm housing.
