Missouri couple enters 37th year of mission work in the South Pacific
The Joplin Globe in Missouri reports:
When you hear the words “South Pacific,” you may conjure up images of a beautiful tropical island, or perhaps a highly successful Broadway musical.
For Tobey and Kathy Huff, the images are quite different.
These Joplin natives have spent more than half of their lives as missionaries in the South Pacific, doing God’s work through their Oceania Outreach. And in a few weeks they will leave Joplin once again to return to the overseas ministry they embarked upon 37 years ago.
Sponsored by Mount Hope Church of Christ in Webb City, the Huffs must come back every few years on furlough to raise funds in order to continue their ministry.
With fundraising completed, they will leave Joplin on Sept. 20 to return to the island of Vanuatu, where they plan to open the Christian Institute of Biblical Studies next year.
