(Byron Buffalo passed away on July 17.  Pastor Byron served Upper Cheyenne in Bridger, South Dakota since 1998 and started the Horse Ministry in 2010 that helps young people experience connection to that which is bigger spiritually and culturally.  Many of us learned more about his dedication to this ministry at workshops held at the 2018 Conference Annual Meetings.  He also served Frazier Memorial UCC since 2002 in South Dakota. 

 
Our prayers are with his wife Toni and family, friends, and the many lives he has touched through the Horse Ministries. Cards may be mailed to P O Box 863, Eagle Butte, SD 57625.)
