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!

Landmark MBC, PO Box 581, Rockdale, TX 76567 512-760-6067
August 2022 Report:We continue to remain faithful to our Lord in service at Rockdale! Last month, my nephew Bruce surrendered to the ministry while at church camp. He is still praying about what the Lord will have him do, but in the meantime, he has moved back home and is currently attending our church. We are excited to encourage him and pray with him. He is excited and faithful in his prayer and study life, too. We were also surprised by an unexpected visit by my dear friend and former pastor, Bro. Olan, and his wife, Regina. They showed up to our morning services and the Lord used them to bless us so much! We are looking forward to participating in Back To Church Sunday in September. We have specific days set aside for outreach prior to that Sunday and we are praying for our community and that people will make decisions to get back to church! We are praying about future plans to either build or acquire a portable classroom type building to move onto our property. We need the space! Please pray with us!
Thank you and we are praying for you all!
Pastor Larry Watson.

He has pastored a total of six churches in Texas, Florida and Canada.
August 2022 Report:Back to Church Sunday: Sept 18th is our annual outreach Sunday. We are getting excited about the potential prospects we hope to reach through this effort. If you attend Lifeline, please invite your ONE to attend.
Please continue to help us with our Car Fund. Any offerings would be appreciated to help us with monthly payments as it was time to get a better vehicle. We thank you for your faithful offerings in advance.
Door-to-door Outreach continues Bro Jase and myself are going out regularly reaching new people in the city. We have met a lot of promising people. We are also following up on these folks in order to develop our relationships with them. Pray that we get some good results and that our church grows strong.
Lifeline Ladies Auxiliary Alice has done a magnificent job rounding up our ladies and getting them organized. She has put everyone to work! Praise God for her service to the Lord and the ladies of Lifeline. 6 were in attendance Saturday 27th.
Weekly Discipleship Every week I am privileged to meet with folks for discipleship or Bible Study. I am presently working with two couples and three individuals. It takes time to make disciples. God has opened up great opportunities. More to come Lord willing.
Missionary Robert Baidya Continues to do a great work in Bangladesh. He is preparing a good number of new disciples to be baptized. This is a HUGE STEP for new believers there. This will separate the committed from the uncommitted. He is very determined to move forward, and time will tell when we see those disciples baptized. Robert is still in need of increased regular personal support. Lifeline is helping Robert with special projects. We are also supporting him monthly along with a half dozen other churches. Please help us if you can. Pray for him as he works in a very challenging place. He is reaching Hindus and Muslims on a daily basis.
We need your prayers! David P. Smith

I thank the Lord that I had the opportunity to share the gospel with 3 men this past week with each one for over a hour long, even with one of our young converts who I am Mentoring, witness these moments. All three said they want to come to church on Sunday. I also was asked by one of our church members to go to the hospital to pray for his friend who will be having brain surgery and kidney removal due to cancer. His name is Gilbert, and both he and his family were receptive to hearing about Shiloh MBC and very thankful that I prayed before his surgery on August 30th and sat with the family. Gilbert was saying when both surgeries are done, and he is healed that they are looking forward to attending Shiloh.

Sponsored by: Northside Baptist Church Snyder, TX 915-301-3712
August 2022 Report:Morning Worship- 10, Evening (in Juarez)-15, Midweek- 8, First time visitors-5, Total visitors- 7, Missions- $75.00, SalvaYons-4, 1 Rededication
Salvations: While on a trip to celebrate Ethans graduaYon and going to our “local” association, we received a call around midnight. I have never known a call at that time of night to be for a good reason, so I was prepared to hear some bad news. On the other end of the line was my son-in-law, Raul. He began to tell me what had happened that night. He said that as he was leading a devotion with his niece and nephews, that they realized that they would not go to heaven if they died. He and Cala were able to lead their niece and both nephews to salvaYon. He told me that they would be talking with another niece the next day. When the next day came, she also accepted Jesus as her Savior! Cala and Raul then said, “Four down and seven to go!” Raul and I had a special Yme of prayer at camp for his family. Praise God for His answering of prayer! Now I have one good phone call afer midnight!
Rededication: After we returned from that trip, Ethan came to me and Amy. He said that he knew that he had not been following Gods will for his life and wanted to make that right. Please pray for him as he seeks to do God’s will!
Prayers for Peace on August 12th, violence erupted between two rival cartels in Juarez. At last count, there were 11 people who lost their lives to this tragedy. We returned to Juarez on the 21st, and after my sermon that night, the former pastor's widow, Sister Piña, asked if we would all commit to praying (everyday) for the peace and safety of Juarez as well as for the people to come to know Christ. It was agreed that 9 p.m. every night we would pray for this. I am asking that you would join us in not only praying for the city of Juarez, but also north of the border here in El Paso. Between these two cities' metro areas, there are over 2.5 million people. We will be praying every night at 9 p.m. Mountain Time. If you will commit to this with us, please let us know.
Thank you in advance for your prayers for God to work in the Borderland!

August 2022 Report:We had a great start to the year this year! Through both our Student Org Fair Booth and the Hub City Fest Booth we handed out over 300 flyers and information packets! We also had over 60 students fill out our google contact form and leave some us their contact information for us to send them dates and times of our meetings! We had our first Bible study this past Monday, August 29th, and had 6 the meeting. That was not as many as I had hoped but 3 of those were new students seemed interested and we also had a pretty bad storm with a lot of rain and lightning that kicked up about 45 minutes before our Bible study started and lasted for 3 hours. Because of the storm I had 3 other students that texted about 5 minutes before 7 PM and said they had planned to come but decided against it since they would have had to walk. We also had 2 of our regular students that were not back in town yet. I am hoping to run 12 to 14 when we get everyone together if the new students decide to keep coming. Our BBQ is this Friday, September 2nd, in which we have a lot of student interest. Free food will always draw college students so I am hoping to have the chance to meet and talk with a lot of other new students at the BBQ. On the housing front we are currently looking at a house. It is about 3 blocks from campus, has 3 bed/3 bath, has a large living area, looks to be in good shape, and has a nice large backyard as well as a large concrete parking area in the front. They are asking $160,000 for it but I am hoping they will come off that price some if this is the house God has for us. We will be touring it later this week so please be in prayer for us and that God will either open the door on this house or close it completely! We certainly need your prayers for more churches to join with us in this ministry to help us afford a house! If we can get 15-20 churches to pledge $50/month we would reach our monthly support goal! Also, if you have any names and contact info of anyone attending TTU this year please let me know!
You can call/text me at (806) 470-2850 or email me at email@example.com!
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.
August 2022 Report:Even though we don't live in Houston or one of its immediate suburbs, we regularly enjoy the fact that this great city is the anchor of the region in which we do live. The population surge of Houston and its suburbs is why we are here, and why we all need to pray for more churches and a greater Gospel presence along the 288 Corridor. This corridor is the next frontier for expansion of the Houston metro area, and the only corridor within a 30-60 minute drive to downtown Houston that still has large tracts of open land that are ready to be developed. Where there is development, there will be more people. Where there are more people, there will be more ministry opportunity. August was a great month for enjoying and benefitting from our close proximity to Houston.
Since moving here, we've had many visits from family in which we were able to share with them the sights of Houston and the gulf coast. In August, my dad visited and we took him to NASA and the Lone Star Flight Museum.
It is also a blessing to live about an hour away from Texas Children's Hospital for Alan's post-transplant care. In August, our family had Covid, and Alan spent 3 nights inpatient at TCH. By the grace of God, and world-class medical care that he received, he is doing very well now. The rest of the family made it through without any significant medical issues. Many thanks to those who prayed for us. Houston also has two airports that are served by major airlines. Amy and I had a short drive to Houston Hobby Airport when we flew to Phoenix Arizona for a conference of Christian pregnancy centers. This was a very useful week for us in our ministry through the Pregnancy Help Center, but also for ministry in general. The worship and Biblical teaching were encouraging and refreshing as well. We are very thankful to PHC for including us in this training with all expenses paid! Our experience with Covid was a reminder of the great people that God has brought together in our Sunday night Bible study. We elected to cancel two Sunday night studies due to our illness, and to protect oth- ers. During those two weeks, the other families checked in on us, brought us food, and kept us in their prayers. Once we were well, we assembled again on the 21st and had an encouraging discussion from the Gospel of Mark. God is so good to bring us the people that He has in the early days of this work! Please continue to pray for us as we dis- cuss the next steps for this new work.
In Christ, Greg Devine.
