    THANKS! Thank you so very much for your support as I begin mission work with the Vienna Church of Christ! Words can’t begin to describe how thankful I am—without you, this work wouldn’t be possible. I depart October 2nd. I can’t wait to get over there and begin ministering to people and seeing what the Lord has planned for me and the church. Thank you also for being such a wonderful church family to me while I went to OU. Sooners for Christ was a huge blessing. Please keep me in your prayers. Hallie Milner
