August 1

Dear Friends & Ministry Partners,

We pray that you are doing well.  God is good and He has blessed us in many ways.  During the month of July I have been preaching at SweetWater Baptist Church and also had the privilege of preaching a revival meeting at Shiloh Baptist Church here in Marengo County.  God blessed the time at Shiloh as many hearts were stirred for Him.  In the months ahead, I will be preaching at SweetWater on the Sundays that were not already scheduled for the AMEN Ministry.  The week of September 8 I will be leading a Prophecy Conference at Carrolls Creek Baptist Church in Northport, Alabama.  I would love our friends in the Tuscaloosa/Northport area to join us that week.

God has provided graciously through the gifts of His people for several ministry projects.  We were able to send funds to Pastor Manuel in Nicaragua for an outreach to children in a new village.  Just yesterday, Pastor Manuel sent us an e-mail that let us know how well this went.  Only last week, a couple in our area surprised me with the funds needed to help with the pastors’ expenses for the conference in Poland which is coming up in October.  Also, through the efforts of Lisa, Faith, Judy Barnes, and Bonnie Faile, many ladies gave for the needs that the children at the House of Hope have for the upcoming school year.  This was mainly for school uniforms, supplies, and shoes.  Over $3600 was given!

Two of the main ministry needs we have between now and the rest of the year are the funds for Mission Pastor support in Romania and for my travel expenses for the Poland Outreach.  We need $1200 for Mission Pastor support and about $2000 for expenses for the Poland Pastors Conference and Outreach.  All gifts of any amount are greatly appreciated and needed, especially in the weeks ahead.  Your gifts enable us to continue this ministry full-time.  God continues to meet our salary needs, but again, it is only through friends and partners like you who so graciously and lovingly give.  Again, your gifts are especially vital in the next few weeks.  Pray and ask the Lord how He would have you give.  Above all, your prayers and encouragement are what we are most thankful for.

Our desire is to be used of God for His glory for revival, missions, evangelism, and encouragement for those who serve the Lord.  As you pray for us, please pray that our love may abound more and more in knowledge and all discernment, and that we may approve the things that are excellent, that we may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, and be filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God. (Phil. 1:9-11)  We love you and we thank God for each one of you.

In Christ’s service,

Allen & Lisa
