Pastor Clint will be riding the Okoboji 200 again this year to raise money for sex trafficking relief in Iowa and Nepal. This is a bigger problem in our state than anyone would want to admit and is an accepted but horrible reality in many parts of the world. Any donation is appreciated and can be made online at https://www.crowdrise.com/clint-loveall—ok200-2016/fundraiser/clintloveall
Your support and encouragement is appreciated, and please pray for tailwinds on June 24th!
