Dan & Becke Haas, Cherry Valley, NY

South Valley is a hamlet located in a quiet valley divided by a two-lane road. The town has 125 people, one farm, and several maple groves for syrup. The surrounding area has three other small towns. First Christian Church of South Valley was built in 1839. A bell was installed in 1875, and it has rung out every Sunday since, reminding the faithful to come hear the Gospel.


  1. We are the first Village Missionaries at this church, and we’ve been here for one year. Please pray as we rebuild the church.
  2. Pray for our outreach on August 20 at our area’s Tractor Festival.
  3. Pray as we show outdoor movies this summer to connect with and minister to families.

This is ranch country in southeast Montana. It’s definitely rural! Pray for this missionary family and church as they study, teach and share God’s Word.

One couple started a Sunday School. God grew it into a church and brought Village Missionaries. 60 years later, it’s a good time to celebrate.
