MISSION FROM RUSSIA—At OKC-St. Andrew’s, two Oklahoma youngsters join a Praise Team from Resurrection UMC, Voronezh, Russia, for a humorous musical skit during a concert in late June. As directed, Kevin Glover is pinching the nose of the team’s music director while the man sings. During its U.S. tour, the Russian ensemble visited five Oklahoma UM churches: Tulsa-Christ, Ardmore-First, Edmond-New Covenant, Enid-First, and St. Andrew’s. Resurrection receives mission support from churches in this state.
