MATTOON -- Pastor Elgin Combs has been on staff at The Fields Church in Mattoon since November of 2010 and he is now taking on a new journey with his wife, Christina, and their family as missionaries to the country of Moldova.
The Combs family will be planting churches and working with young adults in this small Eastern European country, nestled between Romania and Ukraine, just a half-day's drive from Moscow.
Moldova is the number one most human trafficked country in all of Europe, with this crime targeting primarily college students there. As part of the Combs family's ministry, they will educate college students about the dangers and warning signs of trafficking to help them avoid being swept into this terrible industry.
Elgin and Christina Combs are raising their budget and plan to move to Moldova late this summer with their three children -- Isaiah, Judah, Lilian. For more information, please visit their website at www.thecombsfamily.com.
