MORE Church Planters Needed in TEXAS!
I am so thankful for the wonderful support given by Texas churches for the support of our Texas works! However, I am praying that MORE churches get burdened, along with me, that MORE Church Plants are desperately needed for this great state! I am praying that the people that God has set aside to meet this need, answer His call!
As your MBA Sec/Treas of Missions in this state, one of my goals is to help identify and support churches and individuals who are led to start new works in Texas. I am thankful at the half-way point in my first year of service, that one church has already reached out to me to express their interest in planting a new work! God is so good to hear us.
Won't you please join me in prayer that God will burden more hearts of this great need for the souls of our state? I pray that YOU will answer His call and your church will embrace the personal charge of the Great Commission!
Please share this burden with those on your Facebook friends list.
I am busy traveling across Texas and getting to as many churches as possible. Please message me and set up a time I can come and encourage your church for personal involvement in missions!

May 2022 Report:Trip Saved! May has been such a great month here in Rockdale, Texas! Our son, Tripp, accepted Christ as his Savior on May 17th on the way home from a revival we attended. He had previously made a profession of faith when he was much younger but realized that he was not saved. So, 45 minutes from home he got saved! He couldnt wait a moment longer! Praise the Lord. Our daughter, Alyssa has been saved for a few years but was never baptized and we are planning to baptize them both in a couple of weeks!
Summer News: In other news, attendance has been kind of low this month, with people traveling, but we finished the month out with 25 in our 5th Sunday Service. We held our 5th Sunday Singing and enjoyed the fellowship following. As summertime is upon us, we have members grandkids visiting and we are excited for the opportunity to minister to these children. Please continue to pray for us here in Rockdale.

He has attended Arlington Baptist College, Done online courses from Liberty University and has a masters in theology from Texas Baptist Institute in Henderson, Texas. He has pastored a total of six churches in Texas, Florida and Canada.
May 2022 Report:Praise God for 5 saved in 6 weeks! We are thankfully beginning to see more souls saved! We had a bit of a drought and now we are receiving showers of blessings. Pray that each will pursue baptism. We will be having discipleship classes for each new convert! The Young couple that was saved in April have now been married. They have a sweet two-year old daughter. This couple has been faithful to the church since they were saved. We are very happy for these two fine people coming to church.
Faith Promise Giving is Good! Our people have taken the faith challenge to ask God for His supply for world missions. Our missions giving is up substantially and it is an amazing blessing!
ICP and Bill Johnson working with Robert Baidya: Our missionary, Robert Baidya, and International Christian Publishing are working together to possibly establish a printing ministry in Bangladesh. We are so happy for this opportunity to help expand the Gospel where Robert is working, and souls are being saved! Also, Robert got his motorbike!
Alice starting ladies' Auxiliary, Lifeline Ladies: Enough ladies ae now present in our church that makes it possible to start this ladies’ group. The Ladies are looking forward to this with great anticipation.
It took a Whole Year: I led a young atheist man to the Lord about a year ago. We have been praying for him all that time. He finally came to church for the first-time last Sunday. We were all very excited and happy to have him be with us. He was happy, too! We praise God for answered prayers. Jase Fuller, our young adult minister, was very instrumental in encouraging him to come.
One-on-One discipleship continues: Discipleship is a continual practice with me. I am now discipling a man in Ontario, as well as a businessman in our church. There are several others that have expressed interests and so we will be starting with them soon.

May 2022 Report:
Month of Blessings May started with the birth of my first grandchild, Aria, and ended with me celebrating my 50th birthday! Needless to say, this month I was extremely blessed.
On May 2nd, our granddaughter entered this world and made Amy and me grandparents. We were thrilled to know that after several hiccups during the pregnancy, both mom and baby were healthy (Dad was even able to survive as well). At the end of the month, Amy hosted a party for my birthday. What I did not know was that she had invited friends from out of town. It was a great surprise to come in the living room and there was John and Teresa Kight from Roswell, NM! What a great blessing to have true friends that would drive over 3 hours one way to be here for my birthday.
Servants Heart I am not only blessed this month with my granddaughter and my birthday, but as I look around, I am blessed by an 81- year-old man in our congregation. This man, no matter where he is, constantly is inviting someone to our services. Whether he is at a laundromat, Sam's Club, or even a gas station, he asks them about their salvation and invites them to visit us. He often comes with a prayer request that they have mentioned to him for themselves or a loved one. He truly has a servant's heart! Not only am I thankful that he is a member here, but I am also blessed to call Bobby McCarver my dad!
Prayer Request Next month, while we are gone to our National Meeting in Florida, my son-inlaw, Raul will be preaching to our congregation. Over the past several months, he has had some of his lost family members attend services, and we ask you to pray specifically that he can be used to reach them with God's Word so that they will come to know Jesus as their Savior! Also, since January, we have lost between $425-$750 per month in support of this mission. We ask you to pray about this with us, for others to come along and support the work here in the Borderland!

May 2022 Report:Fellowship Baptist Mission hosted the Trinity River Missionary Baptist Association Mission Rally in May. Most of our churches in the association were represented and attendance was good. Brother Danny Mendoza brought an excellent message.
All classes have been assigned for the Vacation Bible School. We have members serving in food, crafts, and music for the event. Praise Jesus, we have enough members to cover all needed spots for Vacation Bible School!!! Anyone who wants to assist is welcome to come join us in July.
The youth held our Fifth Sunday services last week. We had 27 in attendance for the service and not all of our regulars were there. Brother Carrillo brought the message and warmed our hearts with his testimony. His family came to our service and our youth enjoyed his boys. We are looking forward to our very busy June.
Our averages for May 2022: Sunday School=22, Morning worship=24 Evening Worship=10 Wednesday Bible Study=8 The total offerings of members $6795.35 Gave to Missions $807.32
Steven Haney MBSF Director Texas Tech University
MBSF Lubbock, TX 903-722-1545 Sponsored by: Quaker Ave. MBC 4405 - 51st Street Lubbock, TX 79414
My family and I have been working at Texas Tech University since 2015. I was able to become full time at the end of Apr of 2019. Our goal is to see a fully established MBSF at Texas Tech to guide and encourage Christian students while proclaiming Christ to to the lost on campus.
May 2022 Report:Another School Year Down May was good for what it was. We always struggle to do much in May due to there only being 2 weeks of school and that second week being Finals week which means we dont do much that week at all. However, at our last Bible study we had 5 students which was good for that Monday, so I was happy about that. We also did a “Breakfast for Dinner and Movie” night to celebrate the end of Finals and had 7 students show for that! One big thing we did was take our annual vote for officers and had our previous VP ask to step down due to class schedules for his last year. Our Student Org rep stepped up and was voted in as VP and one of our previous freshmen was put in as our student org rep. Our student president remained in office for another year. I am excited for these officers and look forward to getting started again in the Fall!
We have plans to hold a couple of booths this summer during the campus tours for prospective students. As students considering TTU come in with their parents they walk a tour path around campus and TTU allows Student Orgs to set up booths to hand out material in certain places along the tour path, so please pray that we can make some good contacts with those booths! Also please begin to pray for us as we get things ready with handouts and flyers/material for our welcome week booth in the fall that we will be able to get a lot more students involved this next year.
Our monthly support was about $3,600 for the month which is always a blessing. We are still trying to reach our $4,500/month goal to find an MBSF house. I am still keeping up with Zillow and looking for a house but as of yet nothing within in our price range has come on the market close to campus. It may take the housing market going back to at least close to what it was pre-covid before we find one, but God can open doors that we haven't considered so please continue to pray with us! If anyone has any questions, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org or 806-470- 2850. Thank you all and may God bless!

Bro. Greg and his wife Amy have six children. They are sent out by Unity MBC of Richwood, TX. Their goal is to plant churches along the Hwy 288 corridor in Rosharon, TX.
May 2022 Report:Since we started in this work at the end of last year, one of the highlights has been all of the new and renewed connections that we have made with churches here in south Texas. May included deputation visits with 3 of these churches, as well as continued fellowship through meals, events, etc. We are so thankful for all of you!
Pregnancy Help Center: During her weekly volunteer time at the Pregnancy Help Center, Amy had the opportunity to lead a young lady to accept Christ as her Savior! Rejoice with us for this new believer and pray for her as she begins life anew with Christ.
Weekly Meetings: We continue to meet weekly in our home with as many as four families per meeting. The meeting with the highest attendance included 21 people! God is faithful to continue to bring people together to study His Word together.
Dale Completes Studies: Our oldest son Dale has completed his homeschool High School studies, and we will hold a graduation celebration for him soon. Please pray for him as he seeks Gods will for his life, and for us in this transition.
Memorial Day: We invited our neighbors to a cookout on Memorial Day. We had 6 neighbors from 3 households respond to our invitation. It was a great time of fellowship, and we are thankful to be more connected in our community.
If you would like for me to come to your church this summer, please reach out to me through the contact info at the bottom of the page. There is more to share than what fits in a report every month, and I would love to connect with your church and have more partners in our Ministry!
