The "Grand View" Story


Revised August 10, 2003

Mission Work

Mission work has been a part of Grand View from its inception with the $300.00 monthly support for Jim and Laura Reppart in Cameroon, West Africa. When their work ceased, we began an association with Monte and Beth Cox in Kenya, East Africa, which lasted for 10 years. The Coxes returned in February 1992 and shortly there after we began supporting Steve Meeks, a former teammate of the Coxes, to continue the work in Eldoret, Kenya. During this period (1993 and 1994) we fully funded the summer survey trips to unchurched tribes in Africa by Mark Berryman. G.V. helped support Alan Wright in Suva, Fiji, South Pacific until October 1998. At tunes our commitment has been as much as 20% of our yearly budget. Other mission efforts have, been supported since 1998.
