VETERAN MISSIONARY REV. DR. BRENT SMITH, JENNIE, ZACH, KATE AND SOPHIA VISIT MISSION CENTRAL

    July 9th, 2013 was a day so many people have waited for.  A time to have the privilege of hearing the first hand report of Rev. Dr. Brent Smith and his family from Frankfurt, Germany.  Rev. Smith has been in this region of the world for nearly 20 years, and he currently is the Russia/Eurasia Regional Director. 

    It was such a blessing have this family with us for 2 days, and a JOY to have Brent's mom, the Honorable Missionary Dr. Rhonda Smith present also.  A very large crowd of supporters from all over the mid-west came to see "their missionary and his family"....Yes, we had folks here from Milwaukee, Laural, Gresham, Shickley, Bennington, and  Cambridge, Nebraska and Livermore, Storm Lake, Pocahontas, Mapleton, Clarinda, and Sioux City, Iowa......what a happy reunion. 

    Dr. Smith gave an excellent presentation on the work that God has called him to do, and how the Lord Jesus is opening doors to entirely new areas of the world. It was a day that we will never forget.  Here you see the family picture of the Smith Family, along with the wonderful crowd of people, and it was such a JOY for the entire crowd to pray for and send the Smith Family off, but also to have the two new families going to Asia and Papua New Guinea, the St. Onge Family and the Haugen Family present for the prayers.  We had 3 pastors present to offer special prayers.
