Dear Praying Amigos,

Prayer Requests from S. David & Geri Smith in Londrina Brazil for the Week of June 28 thru July 4, 2010.

1. Pray for Geri and David´s health. We have both had the flu and fever for the last week. We have both been to the doctor and both are still recovering.

2. Pray for David as he travels to São Paulo for Brazilian Mission meeting.

3. Pray for our Brazilian pastor Jorge. He will be traveling to a church three hours away and preaching there both services this weekend. We are going there once a month for 5 or 6 months until our BMM missionary returns from furlough.

4. Thank you for your prayers for our Friend Day. We had a good turn out with some first time visitors. Pray for us as we follow up on these new contacts.

5. Pray also for Alana. She is 16 and will be starting our baptismal class in a few weeks.

Thanks for your prayers for this church planting ministry

From Our Missionaries – June 28th

Art Sommerville, Europe covets our prayers that God will help them in face of all the adversaries and obstacles that satan has at his disposal to curb or stop any movement of the Spirit as they baptized several people this past Sunday and received new people into their church.

Dennis Anderson, Africa asks us to pray about the following matters:

1. Funds for their expenses when they arrive in Africa (airline tickets are purchased!)

2. Prayer for the Ireland family at the loss of their 20 year old daughter

3. Bobby Bonner, co-founder of I AM Ministries, recovering from surgery

4. Funds to feed the nationals who will be attending the annual VBS/Bible Conference from August 8th – 15th

Chris Rue, Ukraine asks prayer as they prepare to launch a new on-going tract distributing project based on an idea he did after he re-dedicated his life to Christ and before becoming a missionary that he called at that time “Tract of the Week.” Through Chick Publications they will be receiving 10,000 copies of a different “Tract of the Month” each month and would like prayer as they verify Russian translations, secure financing, and shipping issues. He also asks prayer for Casey and Sarah Kline and their baby daughter who will arrive this summer to help them in their work. Please pray for the Lord’s wisdom to be revealed to him as they seek a place to rent for meetings in the town of Yakovlevka. Apparently, the Orthodox Church has made the buildings once used inaccessible to current evangelistic efforts. Also pray for their upcoming children’s Bible Club in July and Youth Camp in August. They are praying for those of their youth who have not “sold out” to do so as well as for others who struggle to live separated lives for Christ amidst the many temptations of their port city. His final request is regarding an important decision between remaining where they are and using the church as a base and the need to build an addition on to the church OR turning the work over to a national pastor. He does not have peace about any decision and he says, “it is putting a strain on my relationship with one of my best men that I’ve invested years into.”

Prayer / Cards for Mom

Janis Wilson called to ask that we continue to pray for her mother, Mona Major. She has been moved to a rehab center. Mrs. Major had a blockage in her leg and has had two surgeries to try to correct it. The doctors are still waiting to see if the second surgery has corrected the problem. Mrs. Major is 83 years old and has been in excellent health. She has been in the hospital for awhile and now the rehab center, it is beginning to take its toll on her spirits. She professes salvation but lacks the walk. Please take a moment to send her a card of encouragement.

Janice Wilson requested prayer for her mother last night and has not

been able to access her computer to put the request for her mom in.

Her mom is in the hospital and from my understanding has some blockages

in her legs and some other problem, please join me in prayin for her.

Ms. Wilson is always so faithful in praying for us and I pray that we will

do the same for her.

Love Felicia Threlkeld
