Good Morning:  Glad you are here this morning!  We are blessed this morning to have Clay Harper with us from Brazil Church Planting Ministries.  Clay will be teaching a combined class in the auditorium and leading our communion thoughts.  Clay worked for 33 years in the corporate world.  After retirement he and his wife Perri returned to their hometown area of Amarillo.  While living in Michigan their congregation supported the Brazil Church Planting Ministry, which was founded by Charley Huffman.  Clay had the opportunity to make a number of trips to Brazil with Charley.
