Andy Moore (Brazil)  The Lord continues to give us opportunities to reach people.

We have had 15 visitors come to our church services in the last two weeks.  Continue to pray that the Lord will work in people’s hearts and that His Word will not return void.  Please pray specifically for Fabiana and Jéssica, two ladies that were saved in our church last year, but who are now struggling spiritually.


Bobby Poole (Brazil) We baptized 3 new converts on Oct. 22. Please pray for them and their families. A lady, that was baptized, invited her husband and he came! He is a Spiritist. I pray that the Holy Spirit is working in his heart. Continue to pray for our business meeting of the Church, the first part of December. Pray that the Lord will show us the right person to come in as pastor.


Carlisle Hanna (India) Please be in prayerful consideration of Bro. Carlisle’s deficit account as well as the ongoing ministry in India



David Aycock  (Brazil) We are hoping to complete the construction of the Christian School by July of 2018. We need $65,000 to restart the construction after a pause after we depleted our funds. Please continue to pray with us and give as the Lord directs. Annette and I are grateful for you partnering with us. Pray for the following prayer requests: 1) funding for the construction of the Christian School, 2) six students who are studying Old Testament Survey, 3) three young people who are doing our discipleship class and 4) Rodney (our son-in-law) is providing an evangelistic English class for adults and has reached several unsaved adults.

Jonathan/Amy Postlewaite – Over the weekend we were able to give two different people Bibles we know that both people have read some of it since then. Please pray that God will use His Word to touch their hearts and that they will be changed by the truth which they find. Please continue to pray for Amy’s English club outreach. This Saturday Nov 4th she will start an English club for adults (and possibly one teenager). Please pray that each person involved in the English clubs will also be interested in learning more about the Bible and about salvation which can only be found in Jesus Christ. Please pray for Mr. I and Mrs. V. They are connected to a Christian lady who we work with, but they are not believers. They are currently living together even though Mrs. V is married to another man. Right now they don’t seem interested in making any changing, but they have at least been open to talking about the Bible. Please pray that they will understand that true happiness and fulfillment can only be found in Jesus Christ.



Matt/Hailie Deckard (Ecuador) Are in Ecuador and are getting settled in. Pray for them as they transition into ministry there.  mattdeckard.10@gmail.com


Neil/ Mandi Morgan (Spain) Please continue to pray for the sale of our church location and the search for a larger location.

Please pray for the seeds that were planted and the development of those relationships.nmorgan@fwbgo.com


Randy/Kris Valandingham (Aiken).  Pray for them as they continue to minister in Aiken.



Tim/ Kristi Johnson (Spain) Thanks for your prayers for the country of Spain as there is quite a bit of political upheaval because the region of Catalonia has officially seceded now.  The Prime Minister of Spain has enacted a law that will be taking over the regional government there, removing all of the current officials from office, with elections planned for December 21st.  Continue to pray that there will be a peaceful changeover of elected officials and (more importantly) that the Prince of Peace will be found during these days of uncertainty.

“When I got saved I gave all that I knew of me to all that I knew of Jesus. Since then I have learned a whole lot more about me and a whole lot more about Jesus. And I’ve done more repenting and trusting AFTER I got saved than I did WHEN I got saved.”                                           Dr. Adrian Rogers
