WAC News


The SC WAC Retreat will be held September 7th and 8th at White Oak Conference Center in Winnsboro. Kristi Johnson will be our guest speaker and we have an exciting time planned for our ladies. We will have a ‘gift card shower’ for their family at the retreat. Gift cards may be purchased at Walmart, Target, and Restaurants. These will be greatly appreciated by the Johnson’s as they are home and will benefit them with their needs as Alejandro will be a freshman at Welch College this coming fall. Mark your calendars to attend the retreat and more information will be available at the state women’s meeting.

Andy Moore (Brazil)  This year is shaping up to be a great year for our church.  We have started several new ministries, our attendence has picked up, and we are having a great spirit in our meetings and services. Thank you for your prayers and support of the ministry here in Juiz de Fora, Brazil.


Bobby Poole (Brazil) I was able to come to the States the first of July and attend the National at Little Rock. I rejoice to have been able to meet up with old class mates from my Bible College days, see pastors and Church folks that we had met up with over the many years of deputation services. I will be in TN. for a service at my home Church, Shady Grove, near Clarksville, TN and in SC for the Lake City Grace Church, for their Home Coming. Being without my own transportation limits my time in each State. Pray for me as I return to Brasil the middle of September. Also pray for the Marincek Church in Ribeirão Preto as it is seeking the will of our Lord, for the one to take my place as pastor. Thanks to all who have supported and prayed for Geneva and myself, over these almost 58 years. (We were married on September 04 and left for Brasil on Dezember 14, 1960, 58 years ago.)


Carlisle Hanna (India) Brother Carlisle has arrived back in India. Please pray for his VISA renewal efforts. Please remember the works in North & South India as well as Nepal.

David Aycock  (Brazil) We are grateful for your prayers and financial support. Recently a married couple gave their lives to the Lord after an evangelistic Bible study. Pray for their spiritual growth. We have been preparing several new converts and transfers for membership. The construction of the Christian School building continues. Our target is to finish this Fall. We are need of funds, but the Lord is faithful and we believe He provides through His people. If you haven’t yet given toward this project, we trust you will pray about it and give as the Lord leads. Thank you, David and Annette Aycock


Jonathan/Amy Postlewaite After several months of praying and planning we are only 3 days away from our outreach event that we have organized with the help of a team from France. Please pray that we will be able to take care of any last minute details without too many problems. Pray that God will use this event to help us expand our network of unsaved contacts and that there will people who will want to continue meeting with us for discussion groups and Bible studies after this event. Right now the team from France is in the city Shumen. They will be helping the Provows (Josh and Lydia) hand out fliers for a Bible study that Josh Provow is hoping to start soon. They will also be helping them clean out their house. Please pray that God will grant the Provows success in their efforts to invite people from the city to learn more about God’s Word. In about a week and a half, we will be helping with a week-long evangelistic outreach that has been organized by Child Evangelism Fellowship. People from all over Bulgaria will be participating. Please pray that God will use this event to help many young people and their parents to understand the truth of salvation through Jesus Christ. Pray also that we might be able to follow up on the effort to see churches planted in those places where none currently exist.


Matt/Hailie Deckard (Ecuador) Are Currently Stateside: Please pray for endurance for our team; as we all will be very busy over the next couple of months, and also safety and prepared hearts of the people that will be coming down to serve with us. mattdeckard.10@gmail.com


Neil/ Mandi Morgan (Spain) We are so thankful for two volunteers from our church to help teach a kids’ Sunday School class. Please pray as we meet to organize and prepare to start this new ministry in September. Also, we are still searching for a new location for the church to rent. Please be in prayer for this need.



Randy/Kris Valandingham (Aiken). God is blessing us here at Rejoice. We are continue to see fruits from our VBS. We are thankful for the families that God has given us here that are faithful in sharing the work and inviting the people they come in contact with.

Mirial Gainer (Japan) Monday I saw my surgeon again. I will continue wearing the bone fusion stimulator 4 hours each day for 6 more months. Thankfully, I can begin to wean off the neck brace which I had been wearing 24/7. The swelling hasn’t completely gone and I’m still having some pain. The decompression seems to have been successful in relieving pain and numbness in my hands. The fusion will take months to heal.

I came back to Florence April 22 and continue to look after Mother although I am limited in what I can do right now.

Ever been there? More on your plate than you can even think about? Life has a funny way of doing that to us. I wonder how much of what we do is really worth it?

Eph 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise. 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

“Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.” 

Francis Chan
