PRAYER REQUESTS

Please pray for those that are out of work and struggling. 

Maddox, the oldest son of Tyler and Ashley Rehn, was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Please lift them in prayer during this tremendously difficult time. 

Jim and Mary Ann Carpenter, former members of Southside Baptist, are requesting prayer for Jim who recently had a kidney transplant (July 10). Please continue to pray for Jim and the donor, Cherie, as they continue to heal.

Please pray for Chris and Stephanie Tollison. Stephanie's father, Steve Robinson, passed away suddenly on Saturday, July 20th. Stephanie and Chris are still grieving the loss of their son. 

GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: Niger & Christian Refugees
"In June, Boko Haram kidnapped a Christian refugee woman in the middle of the night. They dragged her into the bush and stole all her valuables before sending her back to the refugee camp with a warning for other Christians: Get out of the area within three days or be killed. Many of the Christians left in a panic, and area churches are currently hosting forty-nine Christian refugees. Several thousand people have taken refuge at the camps in Niger after fleeing Boko Haram violence in nearby northeastern Nigeria. Although few of the refugees are Christians, believers in the camps face continual discrimination from Muslim refugees. This is just one example of the injustices that believers are facing around the world (via icommittopray.com)." Source: Voice of the Martyrs

Way to Pray: Pray for the refugees that have had to flee the camps. Please also pray that these believers will stand strong in their faith and be a picture of God's love to those around them. 
MISSIONARY HIGHLIGHT: Ingrassia

The Ingrassias have been serving more than twenty years with e3 Partners Ministry, an international evangelism and church planting ministry headquartered in Plano, Texas. Sam has led evangelism/church planting teams and leadership development conferences to Russia, Sicily, Moldova, Venezuela, Paraguay, Brazil, Haiti, and Guatemala. He serves on the senior executive team with e3 Partners, and his target countries are Romania and Colombia where he serves as Strategy Coordinator.  

He attended Dallas Seminary and was a Bible College professor and also a pastor at Jacksonville Chapel in New Jersey. Sam and his wife, Vicki, have been married for close to forty years and have three adult daughters.

Way to Pray: E3 is making some leadership shifts and re-engineering (expanding) their model of missions ministry. This is a very exciting, opportune, and unique season! The Ingrassias ask for your prayers that God's path and purpose would be crystal clear and the mission would be expanded in depth and breadth.

MISSIONARY AND PARTNER UPDATES
  • The first stage of construction at Back2Back's new Haiti site is underway! This is a site that will serve their missionaries, their trip guests, and the community well.
  • Ellie McCracken will be starting a new school in September. Her parents, Scott and Vicki, were very pleased with the teacher and the team that will be working with Ellie. Please pray that this is a positive change!
  • Pray for Bernardo and Mildred Gonzalez as Mildred looks to leave her salaried job to join Bernardo full-time in ministry with E3 partners.
OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE: Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is an organization that helps people in our community to build or improve a place they can call home. Right now, the Greenville Chapter of Habitat for Humanity has a significant shortage of volunteers. If you are interested in giving your time and skill set to help out with a Habitat project, you can check out their volunteer page. These projects are a great opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community!
