Can You Come to Macedonia?

By John C. Hughes

Greetings brethren, my name is John C. Hughes. I was born in Lubbock, Texas in 1957. I was baptized at the Riverside church of Christ in Pasco, Washington in 1983. I have remained a faithful Christian since my baptism. I came to an understanding of the truth on the marriage/ divorce/remarriage doctrine last year. My wife, Susan, myself, and our two wonderful children: Warren and Georgeanna, live in Bozeman, Montana.

Situation Here

We have lived in Bozeman since the fall of 1992. We are the only Christians holding to sound doctrine in the community. In the Bozeman area there are the towns of Belgrade, Livingston, Manhattan, and Three Forks. All together there may be as many as 65,000 people in this rapidly growing area.

We are surrounded by churches of Christ that do not hold to sound doctrine and a very large cult in Livingston.

Can You Help?

If you know anyone in this area that has known the truth or anyone who may be willing to listen to the truth, please identify that person or persons to me.

We need brethren to come and help canvas the area to find people interested in the truth. Dates open for this are August 18-23, 1994 and March 11-18, 1995.

Time is of the essence. I will probably move myself and my family to a totally different location unknown to ourselves by May 31, 1995.I plan to work next summer or begin a graduate program in chemical engineering.

In order to sustain our efforts here we deeply need a brother grounded in sound doctrine to move here and make Bozeman his permanent home.
