SCFWB Disaster Response News
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!
Please pray for The SCFWB Disaster Relief Team as the head out Sunday afternoon to assist our FWB brethren in Florida next week.
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 H, a guy who came to our JPense in August and with whom I’ve gotten together once before. I will probably sit down to talk with him again this Friday. He seems to understand quite a bit about the Bible even though he has never been to church and does not have any Christians friends, but he is still seeking. Please pray that he will be willing to meet with me regularly to study the Bible together and that I will be help him to grow in understanding of important matters of faith. Pray for our efforts to make contacts through English clubs. We are weighing the possibility of adding a couple more weekly meetings because of the number of people who have shown interest – please pray that we will have wisdom in this matter. Pray also that we will be able to be salt and light to the people with whom we have already connected as we not only help them with their English, but also endeavor to share the gospel. Pray for the three adults who met with us last Saturday for our first adult Bible study in the village of Odarne. At the end of our time together I encouraged them to share what they had learned and to invite others to join us. They told me that the reaction would probably be negative, but seemed to understand that it was important. Pray that God will give them boldness to share what they have learned from His word and that He will use them to turn this small gathering into something bigger.
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) Neil will be meeting soon with the owner of a gym in a nearby town to discuss the opportunity of doing monthly seminars about a variety of topics. This town has no evangelical church, and we believe the seminars will allow us to begin building relationships with people from the area. Please be in prayer for this meeting and God’s guidance. Also, continue to pray for two members of our church whose families are having many negative things to say about their faith. Pray that these church members will remain encouraged and that God will use them to bring their family members to faith in Christ. 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) Last week we taught a seminar on “Church Planting in Europe” at Welch College. Our travels have taken us from Tennessee to North Carolina and back to South Carolina over the past few weeks. Each church we’ve visited has left us more and more encouraged and ready for getting back to the work in Spain. We’re looking to seeing many more of you in the time we have left here in the States. Thanks for your prayers!
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.

Just Give Up
Job 2:9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.
(Just Give Up) I’ve heard that a time or twenty from the devil and others. Job recognized the statement for what it was…foolishness. One of the most commonly uttered sayings in recent days is the phrase “The struggle is real”. Might I say that when it comes to difficulties experienced in serving God that “The struggle is worth it”!
Jas 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
