The Lord has called Josh and Melanie Vickerman along with their two children, Isabella and Ian, to be missionaries in Slovenia.  In preparation for their calling, they have spent a year and a half working alongside Jim and Laura Pranger, teaching in the Bible Institute, preaching in their church and at other area churches, and helping with church maintenance projects.  Mel has assisted Laura in planning and preparing for youth meetings, fellowships and banquets; taught at the Ladies’ Meetings and in the children’s Sunday school; and joined in the music ministry.  They had the great privilege of overseeing the ministry when Jim and Laura were away.  They also took part in two, week-long campaigns, one in Hungary and one in Romania.
