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!

September 2022 Report:
September has been an exciting month at Landmark. We started the month preparing for Back to Church Sunday. We had a good turn for for the weekends we designated for door-to-door visitation.
On the 18th we planned B.T.C.S. and a meal to follow. We had one family that had been out of attendance for a little while, attend!
We are also excited that my nephew, Bruce Mayfield, has officially united with our church and jumped right in and serves. He is helping with our youth on Wednesday night and the young people are loving it.
We also officially voted to purchase a modular building for a very reasonable price, from another local church. We are actively working to have the building moved to our location and will do the work necessary to make it operational.
The last weekend of the month we had Bro. Rex Cobb, from the Baptist Bible Translators Institute, preach our morning service and present the work they are doing. We have two other mission projects that we will be hearing from in the next 2 weeks, and then will decide on which one we will take on to support. In addition to the projects we already support, we are ever grateful to the Lord for allowing the work to continue at Landmark MBC
Thank you and we are praying for you all!
Pastor Larry Watson.

September 2022 Report:
Three Saved in September: Two young people and a practicing heart doctor were saved! Back to Church Sunday: We had 37 souls to attend our Back to Church Sunday. It was a great day for us and a lot more work to do following up on these folks.
Lifeline Ladies Auxiliary: The Lifeline Ladies met and 8 were in attendance. Their project this month is to take nonperishables to TBI for the pantry. Sunday October 2nd we had 43: Some folks did not come on our Back to Church Sunday and made a huge effort to attend! They really blessed our church.
Lifeline Faith Promise Sends $3500 to Missionary Robert Baidya: Faith Promise giving made it possible for us to send Robert enough to purchase an A/ C unit for some of his church meeting space. Also, we were able to help him get a new computer, and some fans, and a Solar System that would generate his own electricity. Praise God!
Forming Lifeline Groups: We are forming 4 Lifeline Groups in order to organize our students and adults for Sunday morning bible study. Getting Closer to Securing Title to Land We are getting much closer to getting our land title squared away. It has taken a lot of time to do this. Our lawyer has submitted all the paperwork and petition to the court for the judge to rule on. In another month we should have our clear title on the 5 acres dontated to us. Then we can sell it to the promised buyer for $550,000. We will then be well on our way to finding our own property in Mansfield.
Missionary Robert Baidya Continues to do a great work in Bangladesh. Robert had 6 awaiting baptism. Unfortunately, 2 backed out and then 2 more said they would wait, and so there are 2 left which we pray will be baptized. Baptism is a huge step for these people. They realize that their baptism could disinherit them and separate them from their families.
We need your prayers! David P. Smith

We thank the Lord for the mighty blessings in the month of September. We have been blessed with new additions. We average 4 first time visitors per week and have Sister Martin that has moved from St Louis to San Antonio, she has been a member of a work for many years and is praying to move her membership. On our Third Sunday service, we had a first-time visitor, Mary, who responded in our New converts/Visitors class respond to an opening question “What was the first thing you wanted this morning “and her response was she wanted to be saved. After prayer and sharing the plan of Salvation with her before the morning message and she prayed in repentance and asked for Salvation. There was another visitor who is homeless and is a veteran from the 82nd Airborne who asked the Lord to take the urge of drug use, how he wronged his mother and that the Lord would spare his life in peace. Both came forward to be baptized. Also, we had another gentleman, Artudo, come forward requesting baptism after making a public profession. The following Sunday we were going to baptize these three, but when we started only one of the three had come back. But God followed through when a first time visitor came forward after praying at the altar during invitation. Then another man, Matthew, who has visited off and on for the past year came forward also making a profession. Faith MBC lets us use their baptistry and we baptized 3 individuals and now pray for them as they walk to please the Lord in obedience. We also: attended the following local Association Westside MBC in New Boston TX, I was the Moderator for the Mission Valley association at Landmark MBC in Floresville, We attended Modic MBC as we receive $5000. To go toward our Building project, and lastly at Northside BC in Snyder as we shared the work. I have been busy with hospice as our member Brother Jose was sent to his physical home suffering in the last stages of dementia. The church has stepped up to help them out being their family is not helping. I’m helping his wife Sister Maryjane as she is frail at night until he goes to sleep so that she can get sleep also. The building fund is at $60,000.00 pray as we are seeking a building. In closing I am thankful for the Lord giving my lovely wife another year of life as her Birthday is on the 28th of September.

Total visitors- 2, Missions- $150
As I reported last month, my oldest son re-dedicated his life to God. When our new invitations were finished, he was the first to ask if he could go pass some out. He was able to pass out 60 in about an hour before he was going to work. In addition to those, we had another 240 invitations handed out for a total of 300. Pray that God will use these to see families begin to attend our services here in El Paso.
Every year on Christmas morning, our congregation goes out into our city and provides something to eat and drink for those who are in need in El Paso. During this time, we also present the Gospel to them and ask if there are any particular prayer requests. We are told of many different needs, from their health to protection on the streets. We ask for you to pray for this yearly ministry and that God will lead us to those that are not only in need of food, but also the spiritual food of salvation.
As our ministry grows, so does the needs for the ministry. Because our two cities (El Paso, TX and Juarez, Mexico) are so greatly connected, we experience some needs that can be utilized on both sides of the border. With a projector and screen, we would be able to have multiple outreaches on both sides. We also have a need for a vehicle that is higher off the ground than our minivan. This vehicle would be used to not only navigate the streets in Juarez but also be able to be used to offer transportation in our work here in El Paso. Any help towards these needs would be greatly appreciated.

September 2022 Report: September was a bittersweet month for us as a group. Adeola, one of our first members back in 2019, passed away this summer and Texas Tech had his Memorial Vigil on September 19th during our Bible study time, so we spent that evening at the vigil instead. We are thankful for all Adeola did four this ministry and he will be greatly missed but we have peace knowing from his testimony that he is in heaven. We have had 3 new members join with us this past month which has been a huge encouragement. We have averaged 6 to 8 at our Bible studies. We have had to start meeting in the library in different study rooms due to the SUB instituting a $75 fee per reservation if non-students attended the Bible Study. We were blessed that the library has reservable study rooms for us to use but they are smaller than the SUB rooms and some can only handle 6 people. Several of the study rooms are really just partitions, not at all soundproof, so we have to keep the volume way down which can be frustrating at times trying to be heard at a whisper. We have still had 6-8 students coming to attend so I am grateful for their willingness to keep coming despite the areas we are currently having to meet. The house we looked at last month had too much structural damage to be feasible in our price range as did the second house for $130,000 that we inspected. This past week we did find a house to the north of campus that is good sized with good parking that is in usable shape, and they are asking $140,000. This is a great opportunity that we are praying on, but we still need more monthly support in order to afford this purchase and we don’t want to jump into something before God opens the door. Please be in pray with us that if this house is the one that God will provide the funds for purchase as well as lead more churches to step out in monthly support. We are seeking 20 churches to step out with us at $50-$75/month which would enable us to be fully funded and afford the MBSF house. We are currently still averaging $3,400/ month and need to be at the $4,200-$4,500/month range. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and support. If you have any questions, or concerns, or would like to know more about the work let me know at (806) 470-2850 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and God bless!

Greg Devine Missionary in Rosharon, TX
Rosharon Church Plant, Greg Devine 903-491-1852
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.
September 2022 Report:
It is hard to believe that it has only been 9 months since we moved on the field. God has done so much in my family and this mission work that it seems like we have been here for a few years. We moved to this area with a “bullseye” on Rosharon, but knew right away that the State Highway 288
corridor from Pearland all the way down to Lake Jackson was beginning to see significant growth, with so much more growth anticipated in the coming years. The Lord has prevented some of our plans with closed doors, and has blessed abundantly through open doors than we did not anticipate. When we moved into our house in Lake Jackson, we were certain that it was a temporary landing place until we could move up into the Rosharon area. However, God has blessed us with an abundant net-
work of homeschool families, ministry opportunities at the Pregnancy Help Center, and Sunday evening Bible studies in our home that have often seen attendance of more than 20. This group is now ready to
start Sunday morning services in a facility that we will be able to use free of charge. Better yet, we have at least two other families that have not attended our home Bible studies but said that they will be there for our first Sunday morning service. Please pray for our first service on October 9.
Even with this abundance of blessings in Lake Jackson, God is working to keep the vision for Rosharon alive. I met two new families in Rosharon who are very interested in what we are doing and may be the link to starting Bible studies in this area. Please pray for God to connect us with the people that He would use to start ministry in Rosharon or would make his will known for my family to move there or not.
As we pray and consider the long-term hope of seeing more workers along the 288 corridors, we thank God for giving us contacts in Pearland. The 288 section of Pearland is much more developed than Rosharon at this point, but churches are few and far between.
Amy and I started filling our new roles this month in teaching evening classes at the pregnancy center. This is giving us regular, personal contact with young men and women who need the Gospel, and need a church home.
Please pray for these that we are teaching to be saved and to attend services with us on Sunday mornings.
In Christ, Greg Devine
