Bethany with Pastor Anatoliy Teslenko, wife, daughter with granddaughter and other interpreter. In 1991 Clifton sang in Stadium Crusades with Sammy Tippit in Odessa and helped drive stakes in the ground starting the Church that just happened to be next door to the Baptist Institute where Bethany and her group stayed.  Pastor Anatoliy was the one who was instrumental in bringing Sammy and Clifton to the Ukraine and was now meeting Clifton's daughter Bethany. Bethany gave the baseball equipment to the Church's youth group to use as an outreach to the youth in Odessa and a bunch of her daddy's tapes and CDs to the Church. What an awesome God we serve to put Bethany right next to a Church that her daddy helped start 13 years ago.
