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!

January 2024 Report:
ROCKDALE NEWS: Happy New Year from Rockdale!
Our little church is excited to see what the Lord has in store for us this year. We had a good month, attendance was still down, again due to continued illness, as well as folks finally being able to travel because they couldn’t while sick last month. Even so, my spirits are high. We have been doing a lot of praying for our church and our community, as well as making plans for ways to continue to be a light in our community. We started a new ministry last month, where we will be picking a community organization to serve each month. Last month we were able to bless the Homeless Ministry in town, and this month we chose the Volunteer Fire Department. We were able to take them a care package full of snacks, and drinks for hydration, and share a little about our church, and how we pray for them and the people that they have the opportunity to help. We made some stickers to put on each item, with a QR code to our prayer request page on our website, for them to share their prayer needs if they so choose. We are also excited about our new Ladies Sunday School series we just started. They are doing Hymns studies and started the last Sunday of this month. The first lesson was already such a blessing to those in attendance. We are excited to report that last month’s prayers were answers and Mrs. Charyl is home and doing well! We are grateful for all our blessings.
In Christ, Pastor Larry Watson.

January 2024 Report:
Sickness Hits Hard but Joy eventually comes: Over half our people were sick for nearly the whole month of January. It was sad to see so many struggling with covid and the flu. One entire family was out for the whole month just battling sickness. We thank God that we are beginning to see these folks beginning to recover and making it to church services one again.
Joy in the Lord: Lord willing, we will be having two wedding ceremonies and 5 baptisms in the near future. There are two couples in Church Membership Classes, and we are excited to see them progressing so well in the Lord.
Entry to Parking Lot: Entry way construction will be underway this week. We finally received our permit to construct our own proper entry way to our parking lot from the highway. This will make it so much easier for traffic to enter our parking area. It will cost $12,000.00! Praise God, we have it in our land development fund and will pay cash for it.
Planning Phase has Begun: We are now planning to build a 40X60 addition which will connect to our existing structure. It will seat about 150. Please pray that we can have the entire building finished this summer, Lord willing. We may need more funds to completely finish it. We have already been put on the Texas Builders list and the Macedonian Builders List. See below picture please.

January 2024 Report:
Work: As the beginning of the New Year of the Lord with the month, we have been actively running two vans with drivers that came from the Haven of Hope van ministry that have been rebuilding their lives as servants of the Lord. The month of January brought a cold front that caused temperatures to freeze we were in the high teens which brought flu and viruses that affected the homeless which brought illness to over half of our congregation most were out for over two weeks included my wife and myself. They are coming back asking questions concerning the Word of God. We also are thankful for prayers, and standing firm on the Word, for one of our sisters that left the church when were having the studies of the doctrine beliefs we hold as ABA churches on the gift of tongues where she felt she had the gift to speak and evangelize based on what her grandmother told her. After sharing scriptures and constant prayer she came back and apologized and with open arms we welcomed her back, as Jesus restored the false teaching that were taught to her by man. And last for this month as a long-answered prayer as Brother Mark has been blessed with a great paying job, has move out of our home into his home, tithing, continue driving Van #1 to Haven of Hope ministry as we watched God redeem him. Our God is a mighty God we serve because of his precious son Jesus Christ. Building Fund: The building fund has been a true blessing, we have $80,141.78.
Prayer Requests: 1. Prayers as we disciple the new converts to be strongly grounded as they step up to replace those that have moved away, along with tithing. 2. Prayers for healing of the illness that have taken a toll on the congregation so we can serve together. 3. Prayers as my secular work has been very slow and only received 18 hours for the month. Prayers for the owner that he may receive jobs so that the employees can provide for their families.

January 2024 Report:
Manuel and Silvino
We have known Manuel and Silvino since right after we moved to El Paso. Manuel is the first person to accept Christ as his Savior during our time here. Silvino lives in Juarez and comes over to ask for money. Recently, we were in Walmart and afterwards my dad was waiting for us in McDonald's. He bought Silvino a meal and was sitting eating with him. When we got there, Manuel showed up and we bought him a meal and sat to eat with them both. While Amy was talking with Silvino, (who only speaks Spanish), I was talking with Manuel. Amy shared with Silvino the truth from the Million Peso tract, and with tears in his eyes he took the tract. Silvino shared that he lives in Anapra which is the second most dangerous part of Juarez. Please pray that he will very soon accept Christ as his Savior.
Be careful (someone is watching)
While Amy was talking with Silvino, I noticed a lady at another table was watching with great interest what was going on. She said that it was beautiful that we were helping these two men. She joked that Silvino could buy her something with the "money" tract that he had just received. Amy asked if she would like one, and she instantly said yes. I went to our vehicle to get her one, and when I got back, Amy told me of a couple that was interested in the Million Peso tract. So, back to the vehicle to retrieve more! Praise God that He used a simple act of kindness to spread His Word!
Blankets and Burritos
This year we decided to give out blankets and burritos (and gloves) for our annual homeless Christmas outreach. Thank you to all those who gave to this ministry. This has allowed us to meet and witness to many who have been forgotten and are in need of the love of Christ. Please pray for those who have heard the truth and are, for some reason, hesitant to accept Him as their Savior.

January 2024 Report:
To the Churches of the ABA, Greetings from our corner of the great state of Texas. God has blest our work here in Conroe and put in us the convictions and challenges for the year ahead. They come in the form of both investing in witnessing and the word of God. We have seen open doors to our community widen, while we have said goodbye by doors closing behind us. All in all, God’s hand and heart have led us in this first month of 2024. We rang in the new year with a celebration at our home. It was a great time of food, fun, and fellowship. We had great time eating nachos, making smores, lighting sparklers and playing games. Lots of wonderful memories for all who came. We even had a visiting family join us for this event. So glad we have such sweet unity here at FBC. We observed our first “Lord’s Supper” since I have been here. It was a long time coming. I really appreciated how much the membership made it a special and solemn occasion. It was our way to bring the new year to a place of commitment to Christ who gave his life for us.
We are so happy to welcome Darell and Gerri Clem to Fellowship Baptist Church. They have been a blessing in leading in teaching and have contributed in helping as being a part of our budgetary committee for the coming year. They both have skills and experience that will help lead our church far into the future of her success. We have made it our goal collectively to read through the Bible in 2024. Biblical knowledge is very important to us in instilling both young and old the principles and practices of Gods’ word to carry out the Great Commission through the Great Commandment. At our last business meeting we voted to form several committees that will help us to move closer to organizing as a church. First, a budgetary committee to help track and chart income and expenses for the new year.
Second, a security committee to reinforce directive to safety. With our priority of fulfilling a previous motion of purchasing and installing a wired video surveillance system. Third, we have formed a Missions committee to help keep the church informed to our state to foreign mission works and modify support as needed. Finally, we voted to form a bylaw committee to review our needs to set bylaws in place for forming as a church. This adds protection, policy, and procedures to our church.
Our ladies hit the ground running with several new ways to fellowship with each other this coming year. First, there is a growing interest in the attendance of ladies participating in our local conferences. Secondly, they have started a “Secret Sister” ministry where all have a different person within the church to show love to secretly for the coming year. Lastly, we’re starting a twice a month women’s and men’s Bible study on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. The men now need to catch up and be active in our fellowship together like the ladies! As far as upcoming events, we are excited to host the Trinity River Association’s monthly dinner at our church on February 11th. We have a Valentine’s theme with loaded backed potatoes and guest Speaker, Justin Gatlin. We are planning the Bible Project on April 12-13th to the Montgomery County Fair Rodeo. Bro. David Hardin will be here for this event before going to Paris for the Olympics this summer. We have pledged to pass out 3,000 scriptures for this event. We might be able to do more with your manpower and funds. If you’d like to help, please contact me ASAP. For more information, please call.
In God’s Everlasting Love, Aaron Bryan-Pastor.

January 2024 Report:
New Hope for New Semester! Red Raider MBSF Ministry
We began the new semester on January 15th. I wasn’t sure how things would go after being idle for weeks. The Lord has proven His favor on us by starting off with 21 students attending! Another Record! January meetings have averaged 17 students with 8 newcomers. We now have on roll 54 students. We hope more students is expected.
We still have some of the students attending Morning Worship at Quaker Avenue Missionary Baptist Church. Although we won’t have them for long, the are becoming acquainted with Missionary Baptist teaching. Hopefully, when they move on to pursue their careers, they will look for a Missionary Baptist Church to attend. This is one of our goals and our continual prayer.
The Raider MBSF Welcome Day on campus went well. Our officers manned the booth and met with the students. They gave out information and promotional items. We gained several new contacts.
The officers are in the planning stage for having a Spring Retreat at a nearby campground.
Thank you so much for your faithful and generous help!
For any questions, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 806-441-0618. Thank you! -Monty Hilliard, Interim Director
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.
January 2024 Report:
It’s a new year, and we are looking at the Texas State Highway 288 Corridor with fresh eyes. We’re not just looking at communities that are situated directly on Highway 288, but also to the east and west. It has been over two years since I first took a drive around this area of opportunity with my sending pastor, and we took another drive this month. We are seeing new opportunities and have a better understanding that comes with the time that we have spent here. We are forming new relationships in communities like Chenango, Danbury, Iowa Colony, Manvel, and Pearland. In all of these experiences and contacts, we are asking ourselves, “what is God doing here?” We are praying about locations and people to start new Bible studies. We have seen God do great things and are ready to take steps of faith as we anticipate what He will do next. Thank you for walking with us on this journey, and for your prayers and support. God’s work was abundant in Coastal Way Baptist Church this month as they: · Celebrated the 1-year anniversary of their organizing · Welcomed a new member family · Started new weeknight home Bible studies in Lake Jackson and Pearland. The gathering in Pearland has a long-term vision of becoming a work that is sent out to start a new church plant In Pearland. At the beginning of the month, I traveled out of state to minister to a good friend in ministry who experienced a crisis. While my field of service is in Texas, I am thankful for the bigger association of churches and servants with whom we enjoy fellowship and ministry. I continue to be thankful for the opportunity to serve in the Pregnancy Help Center. I had the privilege of leading a young man to accept Christ, and was able to talk to another whose pregnant girlfriend was considering an abortion. Please pray that this couple will choose life.
In Christ, Pastor Greg Devine.
