PRAYER REQUESTS

Nate and Bethany Moore are facing a deep loss. Please lift them in prayer during this difficult time. 

Please pray for those facing cancer. There is a list below. We added Karyl Brandon to the list this week. 

GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: Syria
"A car bomb injured 11 people during a prayer meeting in front of a Syrian Orthodox church in northern Syria. Locals in the city of Qamishli said that if the attack had happened just minutes later, people would have been emerging from the service and the number of casualties would have been much higher. The self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility and Christians fear they will continue to be targeted despite the declared victory over ISIS. (via icommittopray.com)" Source: Voice of the Martyrs.

Way to Pray: Pray that God will rebuild His church in Syria, adding to those who have chosen to stay despite the atrocities of recent years and renewing in them a steadfast spirit. 
MISSIONARY HIGHLIGHT: Mung

Dr. Do Suan and Lia Niiang Mung presently live in Yangon, Myanmar, and partner with Fellowship Greenville through Global Access Partnerships (GAP - a ministry of ABWE). With a heart to train church leaders to serve as evangelists and church planters to reach this South Asian nation, Dr. Mung founded Faith Baptist Bible College (FBBC) in his hometown of Tedim in 1986. In 1993, a seminary program was added. Over the years, students of Faith Baptist Bible College and Seminary have come from 8 states of Myanmar representing some 22 ethnic races. Then, in 2003, Dr. Mung founded a seminary in Yangon offering a Master of Divinity program. Many graduates (now over 1500) of FBBC and the two seminaries have become competent, influential leaders all over Myanmar. The Mungs have longstanding ties with Fellowship Greenville and continue to express their thanks for our partnership in the gospel as they equip effective servants of Christ.

Way to Pray: Dr. Mung is in the beginning stages of starting an orphan care ministry. Please pray for him as he seeks resources and counsel of others doing orphan care to figure out the best way to go about this type of ministry.
