WINONA, MS 38967 Brethren Jerry and Paula Bates and Louis and Bonnie Rushmore are the newest team members to associate themselves with the 45-year-old evangelistic ministry of J.C. and Betty Choate ... The Choates invited the Bates and Rushmores to labor with them in the day-to-day duties in various aspects of World Evangelism, especially considering brother Choate's lingering illness ... The effectiveness of World Evangelism to reach lost souls worldwide with the gospel depends upon the continued generosity and sense of urgency exhibited by Christians and churches of Christ that financially contribute to it.
