COME Conference

Friday, May 31st, 2019

For our first trip after my heart surgery on February 28th, 2019, we left Des Moines, Iowa and headed to Dayton, Tennessee.  We arrived in Dayton, Tennessee on Saturday, May 18, 2019 just in time for food and fellowship with our COME family.  It was good to see our friends again and talk about our ministries and all the details of the last year.  I had the privilege of leading the singing and listening to our new and seasoned evangelists preach.  The week was full: we installed our new president Dr. Mark Fishburn after the home-going of our previous president Mark Staley. 

We are going to miss Mark Staley and his friendship over the past 28 years.  Sunday night we spent some time remembering Mark Staley with a presentation to Nancy his wife. We presented Nancy with a gift and a three-ring binder full of memories that the evangelists sent in for the occasion.   Nancy is going to keep working as our office manager and travel as a single COME missionary speaking for children’s meetings and promoting adopt a child through our COME ministry.

This week Jane is in Indiana helping her parents, John and Jean Baughman as they recover from a kitchen fire and tree damage from a storm.
