Mark and Kay Thornberry with Mr. Humble were on Feedback one day last week. Do you have a heart for missions? If you do, here is a perfect opportunity. Mark and Kay Thornberry have made numerous trips to South Dakota, involved in helping the Indians. This place is known as the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, or as the Rez. One area they have served is Porcupine with a population of 1,100 people. In previous trips, one especially, his brother James and wife Cynthia, who went with them, built a worship center. Cynthia is a licensed electrician, so that was her job doing the wiring. There is a motel, but one trip Mark and Kay just camped out.
Now this is where you come in. They need helpers. Want to go? If so get in touch, they are in the book. They also need money. They will be winterizing mobile homes for the winter, so money is needed for supplies. They can take clothes and food that can be kept without any trouble. Anything non-perishable. The worship center is being utilized for church, funerals and other church related activities.
Does all this make you want to go with them? As I said, get in touch with them. As of now they do not have an official date as to when they will leave.

Friday night was the night the GA’s and their leaders fixed the “Come To My table” supper. Bringing mine was Erin Borders. She did a great job, because mine was really good. They have been doing this for some time.
I found out who brought me those delicious watermelons. It was George Whitson. They were both really good. So many thanks George.
