We help native pastors of small missions in OK and elsewhere, like John Copeland of All Tribes Community Church in Geary, OK. He has been our friend for 10 years. We have visited his services, taken food at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and supported and encouraged in many ways. When the American Baptist Association Mission Board voted to close his mission he was crushed. We rode out with 10 people on cycles and cars to honor him in his last service, took him and his family out to eat, as well as loaned him this truck to use in his move. Dr Claflin presented him with a check for moving expenses.
