SCFWB Disaster Response News
Please pray for those in the path of Hurricane Michael as it is currently making landfall in Florida.
Many of our churches are coordinating currently with The SCFWB Disaster Relief board by helping victims of the hurricane and flooding, by donating funds, supplies, and volunteering for services. Thanks to everyone for helping during this time!
Andy Moore (Brazil) The ministry in Juiz de Fora, Brazil continues to progress. In July, we had V.B.S. and two teens from our church got saved at youth camp. Currently, our family is in the U.S. and will be here through Christmas. We are reconnectiong with our churches, while our kids attend Christian school for a semester. In our absence the associate pastor, Luiz Carlos, is leading the church and its ministries.
Bobby Poole (Brazil) I would like to thank the Churches that have been praying for our Marincek Church in Ribeiráo Preto, Brazil. Please pray that our people will follow the leading of Our Lord and the Church will elect the right person as pastor. Also during the days 12, 13 and 14 of October, the Church will have Children`s meetings. Pray that the Holy Spirit will work in hearts and that these 3 days of meetings will bring glory to our Lord.
Carlisle Hanna (India) Brother Carlisle has said that he looks to return to the US sometime in November. Please remember him in his travels and ministry. 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 Please pray for G, the student from Sweden who came to Christ earlier this year. We started doing discipleship together and even kept it going over Skype for a little while. G is back in Sweden again and is trying to study very hard for upcoming tests. He feels like he has to “prioritize” studying over discipleship and therefore we have not met for several weeks. Please pray that he will come to understand that it is entirely possible to be a good student and to make time for Bible study and prayer. Pray that he will understand that making time for Christ every day will actually help him to do better in other areas of his life as well. Pray for J, another student whom I’ve gotten to know over the last several months. J grew up in Canada, but is of Syrian descent. He describes himself as an agnostic, but still has a deep respect for Islam. I believe that if J is going to come to Christ, it will be more because he sees something different in the lives and families of Christians than from convincing arguments. Please pray that we will have plenty of opportunities to live out our faith in front of J and other students from various countries who are studying medicine here in the university. Pray for our continuing efforts to meet people through our English club. We placed an ad on Facebook last week and have received several inquiries since then. We will find out tonight whether any of the people who inquired will actually show up. Please pray that we will be able to add to our numbers and that through this program we will be able to build relationships with people with whom we eventually hope to share the Gospel.
Matt/Hailie Deckard (Ecuador) 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. firstname.lastname@example.org
Neil/ Mandi Morgan (Spain) The nutrition and fitness workshops were a huge success. Please continue to pray for the doors that are opening and the relationships being built as a result of these workshops. Also, please continue to pray for our discipleship classes with a new believer. Finally, please pray for a young believer who has been discouraged lately due to his family’s response to his new faith. email@example.com
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. Pray for us as we have a special Sunday August 12th in the am service with Preacher Jacob Berry. Thank you for all your prayers and support.
Tim/ Kristi Johnson (Spain) We have been in contact with the church in Alpedrete after they had their church retreat this past weekend. Around 50 people joined together for fellowship, fun, and sharing the Word together. We’ve heard comments from people that the retreat was a very positive experience, and they are already looking forward to the next one. We are thankful that they had the opportunity to spend time with fellow believers away from their regular busy lives.
Mirial Gainer (Japan) 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.

This Day in History
On this day in 1877, the U.S. Army holds a West Point funeral with full military honors for Lieutenant-Colonel George Armstrong Custer. Killed the previous year in Montana by Sioux and Cheyenne Indians at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Custer’s body had been returned to the East for burial on the grounds of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York, where Custer had graduated in 1861-at the bottom of his class.
Controversy remains to this day with regard to whether honor should be bestowed upon this fallen soldier. He was reportedly overtly harsh to his men, foolhardy, and was even court martialed in 1867, even though he later redeemed himself with heroic actions.
Today there are a lot of people in positions of power that the public can’t decide if they are worthy of honor or not. I’m glad when it comes to The Lord Jesus Christ there is no doubt about it. He is the sinless Son of God and is worthy of ALL glory honor and praise!
Re 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
