Mission North America Offering- November 24

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) Two different times this past week, I saw a young woman, that I have known since her child-hood, picking things out of garbage bags, on the streets of the Marincek area of Ribeirão.. It was because of her family that we started the Marincek Church!  For some time now, she has been walking and living in the ways of the world! She has had 3 children, out of wed-lock. Please pray for Angela! No doubt, there are hundreds and maybe thousands of people around the world, who have heard the Gospel through our FWB missionaries and Churches, that today are walking in the ways of the Devil! Let us pray for these precious souls , that they will repent of their sins and return to the Lord.

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

Jonathan/Amy Postlewaite (Bulgaria) During the summer we decided to start looking for somewhere in the city that we could use for local church gatherings, for special events, and for our English teaching. A couple of weeks ago we decided on something that fit our intentions. We have not moved in yet, but we expect it to be ready soon. Please be praying for us as we transition some of our regular meetings to the new space. Pray that those people who have come consistently to some of our English activities will be willing to keep coming despite the fact that the room will also be used for religious activities. Pray that we will have wisdom as we make important decisions regarding this new aspect to our ministry. In the past I have mentioned P, a young man from the village of Odarne. P came with us to the church retreat and has told me more than once that he really enjoyed himself. We were able to learn a little bit more about his life and background while talking to him at the retreat. P is very intelligent and is even somewhat knowledgeable of the Bible. He told someone recently that he knows something is missing from his life and that he knows he can find it at our weekly Bible studies in the village. Please be praying that P will be able to keep coming and that we will be able to get together with him one one one to learn more about him so that I can know how to best help him. It has been great to have our international student friends back with over the last several weeks. We have a group that meets consistently on Friday night for a Bible study, a home-cooked meal and games, and who also come on Sunday for our English worship service. Please pray for them to stay strong in their beliefs even when the community of which they are apart doesn’t support them, pray that they will know how to best share their faith with their unsaved classmates, pray that they will be able to find balance between studies and intentionally growing in their relationship with Christ, pray that we will know how to best support them in all of these areas.  

 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) We had a little bit of disappointing news last week when we went to our target area for our English Conversation class.  The owner of the restaurant where we meet told us that he has decided to close the restaurant.  We have really enjoyed getting to spend time each week with him and his family, so we are sad to see him close.  But God has already provided a new place to meet, and we are looking forward to our first session this week at the new place.  Please pray with us that God will continue to bless these conversation times as we develop relationships with the people who attend.

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.
