PRAYER REQUESTS

Michael Curtis Batts, brother of Teresa Smith, passed away on Friday, October 25, 2019. Please keep the family in prayers during this difficult time. Obituary.

Praise the Lord! Nathan Foote, son of Kevin and Melissa, is on the road to recovery after being rushed to the hospital with sudden abdominal pain. 

GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: Yemen
"Yemen is the poorest of all the nations in the Middle East with an ongoing civil war and a corrupt government. Islamic Sharia law does not permit any religious freedom, and the penalty for apostatizing from the Muslim religion is death. Furthermore, both the Islamic State and Al Qaeda terrorist groups have targeted Christians for death. Added to that, to go against one’s family by choosing to follow Jesus brings intense hostility. Many keep their faith secret, but it is estimated there are only 1,000 Yemeni Muslims who have converted to Christ. (via Frontline Missions)" Source: Frontline Missions.

Way to Pray: Please pray for these believers who follow Jesus in such an oppressive country.   
MISSIONARY HIGHLIGHT: Rice

Carolyn serves in the country of Georgia and its neighboring countries, working mainly with women and children. She has a passion for leading people to Jesus Christ and showing them how God and His Word can bring healing and restoration. Through intensive Bible studies for post-abortion healing and more, women come to know God as their Healer and Redeemer. They come to have a passion for God's Word as they learn that His Word is relevant for today and is sufficient! Carolyn also trains leaders in biblical counseling and works to develop and train national leaders in each city to carry on these ministries. In the summers, Carolyn works with Christian camps for at-risk youth and helps with camps for refugees, orphans, and disabled children.

Way to Pray: Please pray for many opportunities to share the gospel through our winter holiday events. My church youth have special outreaches during this time, and I have many guests during the holiday season, with increased opportunities to share my faith around the holiday themes. We had an oral-story telling training as a way to reach Muslim women. My Azeri colleagues and I need to develop a plan of how to implement this training in the context of post-abortion healing. This work will take place in the fall and winter. Please pray for wisdom and creativity.
