Michael Tipton HeadshotDear Prayer Supporters,

Thank you for your fervent Great Commission prayers! The prayers of the Church are the primary fuel for all missionary endeavors. Please join us in prayer for the needs of our missionaries below. Passionate prayer changes the world.

Trusting Him,

Michael Tipton
General Missionary Superintendent


~Tim & Aleyda Spetnagel - We thank God for opening doors of ministry in San Pedro Sula. God has prepared us for several exciting ministry opportunities.
-Praise the Lord that Max completed his first week of school last week. He loves the school so much he does not want to leave when we pick him up.
-Please continue praying for us as we transition into a new ministry with many needs. We ask that God will give us wisdom during these early months of ministry in San Pedro Sula.
-Pray for our children as they transition into a new environment.
-Pray for our ministry account balance. We had some increased expenses during our transition, and our monthly support has been lower than normal for the last four months. We are seeking God’s wisdom in developing additional champions (supporters) for our new ministry.

Papua New Guinea

~Benji & Erica Jenkins - We are so thankful the Lord has provided full financial support for Shawn and Bethany Waugh to return to PNG this month!
-The August youth ministry ran by the Christian Union Bible College students was amazing. Over 150 youth attended various events and worship services.
-Pray that those youth will continue to be involved in church activities and be drawn to Christ.
-The field just hosted WGM president, Dr. Dan Schafer, his wife Pam, and Vice President of International Ministries, Tim Rickel. We praise the Lord for a safe and blessed visit.


~Weadette Burge - Praise the Lord for safe travels back to the U.S. to begin Homeland Ministry Assignment.
-Praise the Lord that despite several delays I was eventually able to renew my driver’s license and other legal documents.
-I begin my speaking engagements this month. Pray for safety in travels, that I may clearly share what God is doing in Paraguay and for a responsive audience.
