   I want to express my thanks to you for allowing my wife and me to
participate in the Medical Mission in Nismes, Guyana. As an Elder it is my
responsibility to know about mission work and to participate, if possible.
This is my first medical mission. I am impressed with the intensity and the
amount of work involved in the planning and coordination and follow through
required to make this medical mission a success.

   It has been an honor for me to get to know those who worked so hard last
week to comply with God's instructions to "go into all the world and preach
the Gospel." So many people think that only preachers can preach the
Gospel.  On behalf of the church and me, we thank you again for letting the
church here [in Mayfield, KY] be a part of the Guyana mission work.

   A brother in Christ,
                       Nolan Russell
