Missions 

Andy Moore (Brazil) After a decade of praying, laboring, building, and organizing, the First FWB Church of Juiz de Fora has transitioned into the hands of a Brazilian pastor. This local church has reached the measures of an autonomous church which are: self-governing, self-propagating, and self-supporting. The new pastor, Ricardo has previously pastored two FWB churches in this region.  He is a talented musician, singer, and an excellent preacher and teacher of the Word of God. He is also gifted in the area of administration and has great organizational skills. Our family will continue ministering in Juiz de Fora in a support role into 2020 to ensure a smooth transition. We are still excited and burdened to take the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to Brazil and Beyond. There is still so much to be done.Thank you for your prayers, partnership, and support that makes what we do here in Brazil possible. Every soul that is reached in this church from now until eternity will be due, in part, to your support and prayers for this ministry.  The Moores

Bobby Poole (Brazil) I would like to ask our people to pray for our pastors (not only in Brazil, but around the world). Some are facing “Burn out” as the work load is heavy. Some don’t have health insurance for them self’s or their families. Most are the fruit of years of work on the part of our missionaries. Hold them up in your prayers.

Carlisle Hanna (India) Pray for Brother Carlisle Hanna as he continues in India.  He is working with the pastors, church planters, and evangelist as they seek to reach several villages.  They hope to establish churches among these people. Pray for those several young men who wish to attend Bible College. Pray for several who were baptized recently. Praise the Lord for the good VBS in South India. Please continue to pray the villages where Pastor Phillip who died recently worked which need pastors.  Pray that Brother Carlisle will be able to renew his visa in August without difficulty. Praise the Lord for souls coming to Christ!

David Aycock  (Brazil) We are experiencing unusually cold weather in what is known as Tropical Brazil. Yet, our hearts are warm with the presence, guidance and faithfulness of our Lord. We had the privilege of baptizing a couple who recently gave their lives to the Lord in salvation. Last month (July) I taught a course on “The Last Things”. We had fifteen students. It was very gratifying to see the spiritual growth in their lives. The construction of the school is going full force. We had to slow down our pace since our funds were very low. Recently though, the Lord has provided additional funds that has enabled us to pick up the pace significantly. Would you consider giving a special offering for this cause? Thank you for your prayers and financial support. David and Annette Aycock

Frank and Tarri Dillon (Monk’s Corner) Greetings in the most precious name Jesus Christ our Lord SAVIOUR and Master. The mission work at MONCKS CORNER is well on the way we were blessed to have 11 in attendance this past Sunday  we want to thank you for your continued support and prayers The price for the work is much praying and seeking the face of Jesus and visitation .

Jonathan/Amy Postlewaite (Bulgaria)

In just a few weeks we will be starting back with our efforts to connect with people through English teaching. We will be restarting some things that have been “on hold” through the summer and trying some new ideas as well. Please pray that God will use these efforts to help us make new relationships with people in our city whom we will one day be able to tell about God’s amazing salvation through His son Jesus Christ. Last Friday we had J at our house for dinner. J is a student from Canada who is studying at the medical university here in town. He comes from a Muslim background, but describes himself as an agnostic. It is obvious every time I talk with J that he is searching for something to give his life purpose and fulfillment. Please pray that God will help me to continue to help J see how my faith has effected every aspect of my life and that he will understand that he can find purpose, fulfillment and eternal life only in Jesus Christ. August is always a time when Amy and I make plans and decisions regarding the new season of ministry which starts in September. This month we are faced with important decisions that we haven’t faced up until now. Please pray that God will give us wisdom and peace as we seek the wisdom to make the right decisions regarding our efforts to make disciples and plant churches in this region.

***DON’T FORGET!!! There is an upcoming opportunity for you or someone you know to be involved in our efforts to reach people here in Bulgaria. A Hanna Project team will be coming this winter to help with the distribution of Operation Christmas Child boxes in the areas around Shumen (Provows) and Pleven (my family). We would really appreciate it if you could pass this information on to anyone who might be interested in being a part of this team.
