Newsletter under a new typist!
With bittersweet faces and tears of joy and sadness, we said our "till next time's" to Brad, Courtney, and their children, as they embarked on their journey seeking the Lords will in SC this November. One of the many Vacancies left by Brad's departure was the Missions Newsletter that you've grown to know and love. I, Kyle Zurbriggen have taken up the Newletter and hope to continue in full stride with it's bountiful collection of useful information, and life-giving reminder as to the current state of Missions @ SCC.
