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 have had over the years, a Scripture verse to “fly off the page”. The other day I was reading in II Corinthians, chapter 5, and verse 18 flew off the page, and  I thought, “This is beautiful!”  “that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself”.  I have read this passage many times, but that day the thought, “This is beautiful” came to my mind.  The verse continues on to say that the Lord has given to us “the ministry of reconciliation” Verse 20 says, “we are ambassadors for Christ”. This is the reason Geneva and I have spent the greater part of our lives as ambassadors for the Lord, in Brazil. Pray for our fiscal son and spiritual sons and daughters who, today, are ambassadors for the Lord Jesus.  Pray for a mighty moving of the Holy Spirit across all of the Mission Fields of the world, including the USA.

Carlisle Hanna (India) Is Currently Stateside. Please pray for the work in India as well as for the pastors and evangelists currently serving there; many amid daily persecution.

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 Lovely name of Jesus. God is moving in Monks Corner at Lamb Of God FWB Church. Through prayers and seeking Jesus and one on one visits the Spirit is moving. Please continue to Pray for us as we continue to serve Christ in this work. We ask you to Pray bout investing spiritually and financially into this work of Christ. We would love to come and be with you in service and share his work. Please pray as were soon to go into Tent Revival as a outreach to the souls in the area we will inform you later upon this. Always praying for your ministries that God anoint and bless all YOUR endeavors in Christ.

Love n prayers The Dillons

The Dillons would love an opportunity to come to your church and share about the work there in Moncks Corner. To schedule a service give them a call at @ 304-731-9192 or email them at fkellydillon@aol.com We pray for you all and your work. May Christ lay his hand on all your endeavors and prosper you.

Jonathan/Amy Postlewaite (Bulgaria) Thank you for praying for our yearly church retreat in Vidima which we attended over the weekend. We are praising God for a wonderful time of fellowship, worship, and learning together from God’s Word. Five people, including both of our daughters, were baptized. Please pray that God that those who attended will apply the teaching that they heard to their daily lives and that their time around other believers will continually remind them that they are not alone in their faith. Another amazing thing about Vidima was the fact that F, a lady from the village of Odarne accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior. What started out as a conversation about the peace which God provides turned into a conversation about what it means to truly trust in Christ for salvation and when asked if she wanted to trust Christ for salvation F said “I want to do it now.” Please pray for this new sister in Christ, pray that she will be able to share her new-found faith with her family and friends, pray for us as we endeavor to help her grow in her understanding of God’s word. Pray for us as we are still adjusting to a new season of ministry that includes a change in our family dynamic. Pray for us as we launch into some new ministry opportunities and make a few changes in some of the things we were already doing. Pray that God will give us wisdom in our planning and decisions, and in our relationships.

 Neil/ Mandi Morgan (Spain) Please pray as we’re preparing for an exciting opportunity in a neighboring pueblo. nmorgan@iminc.org 

Randy/Kris Valandingham (Aiken) We thank everyone for their continual prayers and support for the work here at Rejoice Fellowship. Please remember Bro Randy as he recovers from a recent stint.

Tim/ Kristi Johnson (Spain) This past week we met via Skype with our Field Team for our annual meeting.  It was a joy to spend time with them (virtually) and make plans for the coming year.  We have five IM families here in Spain:  three families that are church planters with IM and two families that are Hanna Project workers.  We also have a couple that serves with THP (The Hanna Project) as national workers from here in Spain. 

Mirial Gainer (Japan) Just a little update. I broke the radius bone in my left arm 

Monday. Doctor said it was a clean break and should heal in about 6 weeks. Being in a cast makes taking care of Mom more difficult. Appreciate your prayers. Please remember her and her mother in your prayers.

Three Things you don’t want to be for God

I had a preacher stop in today and said he had this thought on the way over. With his permission I am sharing it with you.

Three Things you don’t want to be for God:

  1. Unfit
  2. Misfit
  3. Dim Whit
