Sojourners help out at Crowley’s Ridge College in Arkansas


The Paragould Daily Press in Arkansas reports:

The Sojourners, a band of traveling workers for Christ, finished a two-week stay at Crowley’s Ridge College on Friday, where they helped lay more than a mile of optic cable, painted some dormitories, cut down dead pine trees and constructed concrete forms.
Homer Kennon of Doniphan, Mo., headed the work crew. He said the Sojourners is a national organization of the Churches of Christ and composed mostly of retired people.
“A Sojourner has to have an RV and be able to travel at their own expense,” he said. Kennon heads teams that come to Paragould often. “Last year we painted the cafeteria here, re-carpeted the stage and did general maintenance work.”

    My parents have been members since retirement. Excellent organization. Can’t wait until I can join.

    Sojourners from the Prairie Grove, AR Church of Christ came to our congregation to hold an instructional workshop on Listening Skills, called the Listening Lab. It was an excellent class and reminded us all how important listening is when teaching and reaching out to others. Listening is learned and it can be taught. This is an excellent program I hope to join when I retire.
