Cash Family Update

Dear Friends,

The Glenwood Mission Team consists of 15 members who pay close attention to Glenwood’s local and international mission activities. Today we received the email below.  Since 2002, Jeff and Cheryl have been missionaries sponsored by Glenwood in their evangelism and training ministry in Uganda, East Africa. They are currently on furlough in the USA and will be with the Glenwood congregation later this summer. Their email will let you know of some of their joys and struggles, and there is much in their email to help you pray effectively for them.
