For several years, Chuck has been involved with the school as an instructor and has come to greatly appreciate the work being done by the school in Kiev and the great potential that still remians. In the letter which Brother Northrop sent out announcing his plans, he noted that "on any given Lordís day," there are at least a half dozen places where graduates and students of the school are preaching and/or teaching." Brother Northrop has set three basic goals for the work:
· Establish a more rigid curriculum for the school.
Brother and sister Northropís delay in moving to Ukraine is due to a commitment to their family. The Northropís youngest daughter, Lisa, is in her senior year at high school, and the Northropís are committed to seeing her settled at college before they leave the states.
At present, brother Northrop is attending Russian language classes at Oklahoma State University Ė studies that will continue when he moves to Ukraine so that he will be able to communicate beyond the use of a translator.
Brethren, in order to accomplish the things that have been set before
him, brother Northrop needs our help. He, of course, solicits our
prayers for his safety, for his family, and for his labors. In addition,
he will need financial assistance. If you know of congregations that
are willing to be in fellowship with the Northrop family "as concerning
giving and receiving" (Phil. 4:15), please have them contact brother Northrop
by phone at (918) 358-5922, or in writing at RR 4, Box 4412, Cleveland,
OK 74020 or email: NorthropC@aol.com
