Upcoming MIssion Trip

We have the dates set for our next trip. Lord willing we will be going to Kirovograd Ukraine March 14 - 19 to do a Pastors/Wives marriage seminar with the Church of God Pastors and then we will be traveling back to Uzghorod for a Pastors/Wives marriage seminar with the Methodist Pastors for the week of March 22-26. We will also be doing an evening seminar once again at the Methodist church.
We will be having to bring our own translators with us to Kirovograd so that will be an added expense since we will have to pay for their travel and also their fees.

If you would like to support this trip financially with any size gift, please send it to :

Chardon Christian Fellowship
401 South Hambden Street
Chardon, Ohio 44024

Checks may be made out to Chardon Christian Fellowship and put Pastors travel fund in the subject line. 100 % of the money given is used to pay for travel, housing and translator fees.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support as we follow the Lords leading for our lives.
You are very much a part of each trip. We could not do what we do without our CCF church family standing behind us and all the faithful supporters who believe that God is sending us.

Blessings, Wayne and Sherry

Dear Friends,
Someone wrote and said we had not said we got home so I figured it would be a good idea to update.
We had a great flight home with no delays and even got terrific seats on the plane. God has been so gracious to us this trip and we have felt quite pampered.
Things at home were good. Pastor Bill took great care of our congregation while we were gone so we came home to things being in order. PTL for that.
It looks like our next trip will be to Ukraine in March. We will be mailing out a full report on what we will be doing and where exactly we will be going. Since coming home we have been contacted by a Bishop with the Church of God in the Central part of the Ukraine and we are working with him trying to set a date to visit his region. We hope to coordinate this upcoming trip with several locations to make the best use of the money that you all give. Please pray for us to hear clearly on what invitations to accept. In these last days we want to make the most of the gifting God has given us and be in the places He wants us to be.
We also wanted to be sure that you all know that our trip to Prague was not paid for out of the mission donations that we received. Our friends Roger and Robin were able to arrange for us to stay at the convent for $50 per night for the two of us and the apt. has a full kitchen, so we don't have to do anything but purchase some groceries and then we walk around and gawk like tourists and rest alot. We love Prague so we save up our allowance money for months to be able to go feast our eyes on this beautiful city.
The reason we bring this up is that there are so many who misuse the monies that are donated for ministry and we want to be fully accountable. We know that many people sacrifice alot so we can go minister in Eastern Europe and so we keep very careful records of how much each aspect of our trip costs and will be happy to share them with you if you ask.
Well have a blessed fall and winter season. We will be in touch soon and let you know the details of our next trip. Keep your eyes on the King of Kings and Lord of Lords who will soon return for His bride.
Grace and Peace
Pastor Wayne and Sherry
