THANK YOU NOTE
Dear Church Family,
Thank you so very much for your caring, prayers and cards to comfort me in the loss of my beloved Guy. He loved the Lord and all of you so much.
Love, Charlotte and family
All members are encouraged to stay a short while after our Sunday, September 20th worship assembly for the Annual Corporate Meeting. Thank you!
Kay Parker’s grandson, Noel Parker, at age 29, passed away on Saturday, September 12th, after struggling with muscular dystrophy for many years. Kay tells us that God had blessed him with great intelligence and a warm and kind disposition. He will be greatly missed by many, esp. his parents who had been great caretakers. They had also visited our worship assembly.
Our condolences, love and prayers go out to Kay, Noel’s parents, family and to all who knew and loved him.

Adventures in Missions Prayer Requests
One of the privileges we always have is to take our prayers on behalf of others to the Father. 2 Thessalonians 1:11 (ESV): “To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power”. Below are some prayer requests from our AIMer, Kaylee Hankins, on behalf of those she is very concerned about. Kaylee and her team will be headed to Witchita Falls very soon to begin working with the church there. Please include her, her team and her requests in your daily prayers. For the elders, Ken D
This isn’t a typical newsletter, just prayer requests. There’s a family that’s serving as missionaries in their hometown, Seattle, WA. A family member of that team was shot in the back. The bullet hit her spine, her airways, and lodged next to her heart. They’ve had procedures done to keep her stable. She has a breathing tube and a feeding tube. The last update I had a couple days ago was that they couldn’t remove the bullet in fear of putting her at more risk. She’s a cousin to one of my classmates who’s an AIMer in Arlington. He said she’s just 16 years old. They are a strong family, but I know with the help of prayer peace will fall upon them.
Another prayer request…I’m sure you all have heard about the West Coast fires that have been destroying so many homes, businesses, and lands. I’ve had so many friends to be affected by this. My teammate, Logan Peugh, is from Medford, Oregon. It was confirmed yesterday that her and her family lost their home due to the fire. She’s been evacuated from a few more different cities. This is devastating to a family, losing everything just over night. Also, her father has Crohn’s disease. About a month ago, it flared up really bad and he had to undergo two surgeries. He is starting to keep food down now, but not much. She said when she was a toddler, they almost lost him. So it’s pretty serious for her family and very scary. Her dad’s name is Glen. I’m going to have a GoFundMe page setup tomorrow for her and her family. Just something that can help buy them new clothes and food. Logan is still preparing to come to Wichita Falls, but she has nothing to pack with her. They didn’t have time to grab anything, and I know whatever we raise, it’ll benefit them so much.
I ask for prayers for Team Brazil for peace. My best friend is supposed to be going to that field. However due to the virus, we don’t know what’s going to happen. Everything keeps changing for everyone. She has a meeting Friday with the director of AIM and her team to make the final decision whether or not to wait until Brazil is ready or to send them to a stateside field.
And finally for my field. We are all arriving the weekend of the 18th-19th of this month. The apartment we applied for wasn’t ready for us last week. We are eager to move in together and get started. Prayers for safe travels and enough support raised for each of us. And just special prayers for Logan. She’s handling so much at the moment.
Thank you so much for all your prayers!
