Please pray for a new missionary, Bro. Sergey Skripnik, who has begun a church planting ministry in the Ternopol district, Ukraine's most unreached oblast.
Pray for the All-Ages Sunday School program in Ukraine, that God will continue to give the Baptist pastors here a vision for providing all their members with sound Bible teaching.

Jaime Jorge, the concert violinist and evangelist will be holding evangelism concerts in Ukrainian district capitals from June 15 through 22. Pray also for the Ukrainian churches to reach out to many lost people who will come to the concerts and hear the precious Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Pray also for Bro. Jeff's preparation to train Armenian church planters and hold a Bible conference for Iranians next month (July). Please pray for the preparation for the English camps in July, in which Dan, Cindy and their son John Williams of Antioch Baptist Church in Conway, Arkansas will participate. Please pray for safety for all our travels.

Please pray for our new grandson, Tripp, who was born in May to our daughter Sarah in Conway, Arkansas.

Many blessings,
Bro. Jeff

New Grandson, Jaime Jorge, Violinist and Leah's 21st BD

What a month. New grand baby boy, Tripp Morgan Jones, born May 22, 7.9 pounds and 19 inches, all doing well. I stayed a month to help as I could and returned last Wednesday.

Guest violinist, Jaime Jorge arrived on Thursday after me for a 10 day tour of Ukrainian churches. He really is an evangelist because he speaks testimony between playing his wonderful melodies. If you ever get the chance to hear him (he flies all over the world) it will be worth your time.

Then Saturday we had Leah's (our youngest daughter) 21st birthday. That was a party with special friends. She even had the happy birthday song played for her on violin.

Please pray for Jeff, Leah and Jaime as they pursue their Ukraine tour through many western Ukraine churches. Pray for their safety on the road, of course, but also that they would touch many hearts with the gospel message. As for me, I'm enjoying the peace and quiet of home, garden and my own bed. God bless you.
