Andy Moore (Brazil) Remember Nathan Kimbrell (missionary assisting Andy & Andrea Moore) in your prayers. Several weeks ago he woke up & has lost almost total hearing in one ear. The Dr.’s are treating him with antibiotics to hopefully clear this up. Things are continue to go great for Brazil & Beyond Ministries. We are continuing to see visitors & had the opportunity to lead a lady to the Lord this past week in our services. Please pray for Fabiana that the Lord will continue to do a work in her life as we continue to minister to her. Also, we are planning our first VBS this year in the month of July. We are excited about this new outreach to our community. God is continuing to bless & souls are continuing to be reached. Thank you for your support & most of all your prayers.
Bobby Poole (Brazil) The Marincek Church Board asked Pr. Lucas Vieira to come and preach and teach the Adult class in SS, during the time that I will be in the States (July, through part of September). Pr. Lucas is a young pastor in the First Church and graduated from our Seminary and Bible Institute. He is a good preacher and John says he does a good job teaching (he was teaching an adult class in the First Church.). He is married and they are expecting their first child, about the end of the year. I told him that when I returned to Brasil, the Church Board would discuss with him the possibility of being elected, the pastor of the Church. Please pray with us.
Carlisle Hanna (India) Please continue to remember the work in India, pray especially for the pastors, and evangelists as they preach the gospel.
David Aycock (Brazil) We enjoyed having our four children and our two sons-in-law here in Brazil to celebrate our 30 yrs of marriage and 30 yrs of ministry. Annette and I are grateful for your prayers and support through the years. David
Jonathan/Amy Postlewaite Please pray for us as we travel to Tennessee and then on to West Virginia, where we will stay until the end of June. Pray also about a bill that was recently put forward in the Bulgarian parliament. The bill is meant to target radical Islam, but because of its language it would affect the efforts of Christian missionaries as well.
Neil/ Mandi Morgan (Spain) We had our first two English classes at the university. We have been really encouraged at the turn out. There were so many students that we have even had to divide the class and offer it two days a week. One of the students invited us to join her family this weekend for a picnic. We are praying the Lord will use this opportunity for His glory! Please join us in praying for this. Please also pray for God’s provision for Pastor José Manuel and his family. He was recently laid off from his job as an electrician.
Randy/Kris Valandingham (Aiken) Please continue to pray for Rejoice FWB Fellowship as they minister in Aiken SC.
Tim/ Kristi Johnson (Spain) This past Sunday, four people were baptized in the Alpedrete Church. We are especially happy that our daughter, Ana, was one of this group. It was a beautiful day, which filled both our hearts and our eyes (with tears)! We are thankful that God is working in the hearts of people here in our town and bringing them into a relationship with Him.

Have you ever had one of those moments? You know the ones; when something is said or done and you just have to shake your head at it, because in order for that to happen someone had to have completely sent their brain on vacation. We are getting more and more of those moments in our society. The decisions of people in higher leadership in our nation have been providing us with a slew of (Wait…What?) moments lately.
But did you know this was happening at another time in history as well? In the days of the Judges of Israel, every man did that which was right in his own eyes. I don’t have to tell you the mess that can be created when man is left to make his own mind up. I sure am glad we have an instruction book to go by that tells us right from wrong.
Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
