SISTERSVILLE, WV 26175 Nina and I moved to our new house in Tyler County and began work with the church at Pursley on January 1, 2006, after 26 marvelous years with the 36th Street church in Vienna, WV. At that time I also accepted the position of Director of Church Relations with Ohio Valley University. My two new areas of interest are most compatible and I am enjoying working in both positions. The Pursley congregation is realizing some beautiful increases in the first three months of our efforts together and we look forward to even better days ahead. Pursley will celebrate 100 years in its present building on May 20 and 21. We have scheduled a dinner at the Sistersville firehouse on Saturday, May 20th at 6:00 P.M. Quinet's Court Restaurant will cater the meal. We would like all former members, as well as present and past friends of the Pursley church to come and share in the evening. Reservations for the meal are required no later than May 15th and can be made @ $15.00 per person. This includes dessert, drinks and gratuity. For reservations, call either 1-304-652-1194 or 1-304-652-2922. On Sunday afternoon at 2:00 P.M. there will be a SING at Pursley as a part of this nice weekend celebration. Please pray for continued success in our efforts at Pursley and at OVU. -Tom Butterfield, 901 Tyler Hwy. Email:

GALLIPOLIS, OH 45631 Have just returned home from Dunnellon, FL, where I did some preaching this winter. This is a fast-growing congregation of nearly 100 members.

LEYTE, PHILIPPINES Leyte Disaster Report (March 9) I just got back from Leyte. This was my second trip. Will go back there again and do more medical missions with my brother, Dr. Sam Cariaga. We also gave materials for 20 beds. People were just sleeping on the floor or on the ground. We were cramped like Sardines in school classrooms (literally). We will donate 100 or more beds ASAP. We visited and met more orphans who lost everything. We offered them full scholarships to study at Sunrise Christian College in Butuan City in June. Salvador Cariaga.
