Arkansas Hispanic Missions: Michael Hight writes:
“This week was such a blessing on a variety of levels. For one, interestingly enough, the government shut down actually gave me three witnessing opportunities that I would not have had otherwise. Two, the mission in Bryant has dedicated October as a special month of prayer and we have been meeting in homes on a weekly basis. To hear people who, less than a year ago, never prayed now calling out to God is an amazing thing! Friday we altered our plans and met at Park Place to pray. We spread out over the church and prayed that God would continue to anoint the new work, but these young believers were even praying for our ”mother” church. They were praying for the musicians, the pastor, and everyone that attends the services there. I was truly humbled by their fervency. And then, yesterday, we took 23 with us to Hot Springs to Charity Heights to enjoy a joint service. One of the families that went with us is a family that is lost and we are praying for their conversion. I have so much more to write, but for lack of space, please keep Jonesboro in your prayers and Rogers. I believe God is putting some pieces together for some really neat things to take place in the future.”
Connection Point, Brookland: Chad White reports 43 for worship service and 29 for small group.
“It was another exciting week at Connection Point. Thursday I was able to help with the Football Homecoming Tailgate at Brookland High School. This past week I was also able to attend the annual meeting of the Jonesboro Association of Missionary Baptist Churches. Saturday our Teen Group hosted a bonfire/cookout with lots of guests in attendance. Pray for us as we continue to reach out into the community.”
Life Journey, Barling: Darrin Smith reports:
“We are very thankful for what the Lord is doing here at Life Journey. After one of our Bible studies a man and his son talked with me about what it means to know Jesus as Savior. I will be meeting with them this week and following up with their decision. Please pray for us.”
The Mustard Seed, Alma: Jim Tollison writes:
“We have had a busy week once again with Mustard Seed Ministry. We did some follow up work with visitors as well as making some more new contacts. We are trying to get more involved with the communities we are ministering to and believe this will be a key to future growth.
“Becky and I attended the Mountainburg High School Homecoming last Friday night. One of our young ladies was one of the Sophomore Maids. We met some new people at festivities.
“The interior work at the Cain Mission is getting closer to completion. One of our mission members will be painting a mural on the wall behind the pulpit as soon as we finish preparing it.
“There were 22 at our Sunday Worship with several still out. Pray for our folks to see the importance of faithfulness.
“Becky and I attended the United Association District WMA Meeting last Saturday. It was a very good meeting. We thank them for letting us be their quarterly project. While there I got to visit with Bro Cecil Burgess. He now pastors at Caney Valley in Plumerville. He was the one preaching many years ago when I was saved. That was a very special time for me. He will always hold a special place in my heart.
“Please keep praying for your Missionaries across the State and for us as we search for a piano player. The music program is such an important part of the growth process of a Mission. God Bless You All!!!”
The Bridge, Mountain Home: Hershel Conley reports 57 present for morning worship, 38 for evening worship and three first time visitors.
“This week we went to the Jonesboro yearly Association meeting and gave our report. They have been wonderful to help us here at the mission. Every time I go to these meetings I get inspired and encouraged. I love these men and women and their desires to see souls saved.
“We had a good Sunday morning service with all listening and praying at the altar. Please pray for us as we study and teach our people how to be soul winners. Thank you for your love and support, we love you all.”Read more..
