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: Azerbaijan
"Azerbaijani pastor Hamid Shabanov was arrested and given a prison sentence in 2008 for having an unregistered house church, even though his many attempts to register his church had been rejected. In 2016 his church was again raided by police, and all 30 members were taken to the police station. National television reported they were arrested for “spreading illegal religious doctrines.” Both Pastor Hamid and another church leader were assessed heavy fines—the equivalent of three months' wages—and they were ordered to stop meeting as a congregation. (via Frontline Missions)" Source: Frontline Missions.

Way to Pray: Please pray for Pastor Hamid and the believers in Azerbaijan as they seek to follow Jesus in this Muslim country. 
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. 

OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE

Don't forget that the first part of our HOPE Challenge is this weekend! There is still an opportunity to register for the Piedmont Women's Center 5K which will be this Saturday at Trailblazer Park. You can also stop by the tables in the commons on Sunday morning to return your change-filled baby bottle or drop off cash or checks in the basket.

The next part of the HOPE Challenge will be to serve Harvest Hope by bringing in non-perishable food items on Sunday, October 13.
