PENNY HARDEN  |  DEAF MINISTRY VALLEJO

Biblical Ministries Worldwide

Ministry

I am involved in deaf church planting—evangelism, discipleship and leadership training. I go to deaf events as a way of making contacts. After they are saved, establish Bible studies with them and also work with others who are further along on leadership development. Our goal is to plant an indigenous deaf church here.

Prayer

• The deaf couple mentioned two years ago still need prayer. They are still separated with him here and her in another state. They both grew up in abusive homes and don’t have healthy ways of dealing with problems so still need a lot of prayer.

• Continue to pray for my new co-workers to move to Vallejo in the Lord’s timing. Their daughter still has one year of schooling left so it won’t be before she graduates.

• There are a few people that come occasionally that are not saved. Pray for clear understanding of the gospel and for them to be saved.

Ministry

Steve now serves as the “Assistant to the Director”—assisting the General Director in expanding and improving the ministry of BMW, especially in communications. Steve still does about 80% as Communications Director (e.g. managing BMW’s websites, media, branding, etc.), but he now helps the GD with his projects and proposals.

Prayer

• Praise that the 17 candidates that came through July’s orientation have joined our mission family. Pray for them as they raise their support and head to their respective fields.

• Praise for the launch of BMW’s new website. Pray that it will be effective in helping more churches and missionaries go into all the world with the gospel.

• Praise for the launch of BMW’s new book: The Prayer War, which helps people to pray for missionaries. Pray that God will use the book to increase prayer for His work and for His workers.

• Praise that Charissa has adjusted well to going to pre-school and wearing glasses. Pray for her salvation and for us as parents for wisdom and grace in our parenting.

ALBERTA & PALOMA PEREZ  |  NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

Ministry

There are many Hispanic cultures around our area but many have been taught either a different religion or a different type of doctrine and our goal is to preach the word and allow our Heavenly Father to open these peoples eyes and hearts. Our moto is simply Sharing the free gift of God.

Prayer

• Our daughter Arely and her process as she begins her schooling again for her masters degree.

• Also pray that the Lord may provide Arely a job in the LA area close to the university.

•Our church and the ministry that the Lord may continue to grow our congregation.

JERRY & AMY SMITH 

Biblical Ministries Worldwide

Ministry

Jerry’s title for the mission is now Relationship Director. We want to encourage missionaries and pastors by personal visits, attending pastor’s conferences and the IFCA Convention, representing the Southeast Church Extension of the IFCA in our area, and doing personal discipleship as God gives us contacts and opportunity.

 

Prayer

• Pray for Jerry’s eyes. The partial cornea transplant seems to be healing and doing well. We will be scheduling the surgery for his other eye for this fall. Pray that God will keep us both healthy and strong to continue to do the ministry we love.

• Until recently the mission paid for our supplemental health insurance and for the email service that we use to send out Thinkspots/Inkspots, but we are now paying for that. That involves about $230 a month in extra expenses for us as well as some medical bills from Jerry’s surgeries. God is faithful and we are all paid up to date.

Ministry

The goal of our mission (Brazil Gospel Fellowship Mission) is to plant churches in the cities and towns of Brazil that have the greatest need to hear the gospel. My part of that vision is working with discipleships, children’s ministries, evangelistic Bible studies, and youth ministries.

Prayer

• I am currently undersupported at this time, but am praising the Lord for his provision and loving care. I am looking for a one time gift to help with our children’s day activities at the church in Estancia Velha. (Children’s day is October 12).

• I would very much like to thank the church for your continuing support and prayers for the ministries here in Southern Brazil! My specific requests would be for the evangelistic Bible studies as we make contacts and for wisdom in sharing the gospel and teaching the Word.

• I would also appreciate prayers for the children’s ministries in Estancia Velha, we arevery short on teachers and we are praying for God to raise up more workers with a heart for this ministry.

• Pray also for my continuing growth in my relationship and dependence on Jesus Christ and that my example and words would truly honor the Lord. Please also pray for me to continue growing in my ability to speak and use the Portuguese language.

• Pray also for effectiveness in the discipleships, especially for the teen girls to grow and place Christ as the first priority in their lives.

I connect the needs of missionaries with individuals and churches who can help meet those needs! One very effective way has been to take volunteer healthcare professionals to 3rd world countries. The purpose of these trips is for both meeting humanitarian needs and for evangelism of those without Christ.
