Our Church Family Missionary Prayer Requests

November 16, 2017


Our AWANA program.  Pray for our Awana outreach during December.

[Prayer support: Awana missionary appointees for our area (replacing the Brittons):  Scott and Leah Conner and four children.  They have 25% of their needed support. They are hoping to become missionaries on the field in January.]



Marie Chase (Retired widow with CBM)


Mission Website:


Pray for Marie as her husband, Jim, missionary builder with CBM, went to be with the Lord in February.  Pray for Marie as she adjusts to life without Jim and goes through paperwork.  The Lord was gracious in providing help when her basement flooded.

November 13

God has providentially put together a church planting team. Last Sunday, Andrés officially accepted the Antofagasta church’s invitation to serve as a pastoral intern for the next two years. THIS IS AN ANSWER TO PRAYER!!

Mark and Bekah Perry will be moving to Chile at the end of Dec. and will also join the Antofagasta church planting team in early 2018. THIS IS ANOTHER ANSWER TO PRAYER!!

We give praise to Jehovah Jireh for His provision OF these two couples and FOR these two couples to live and serve in Antofagasta.

We can’t wait to see what God will do in and through our teammates.

Your missionaries, 

David and Kristi Flinck, Jordan, Ben, Kaylee, and Lukas

October 23

            I thank the Lord for the wonderful privilege to speak to the young leaders of Public High School in our city, all of them are Class Presidents from Grade 7-10.

            Their School Principal had invited me to encourage, inspire and motivate these young leaders to lead from God’s perspective and that was my opportunity to use the Word of God as the guideline and basis of a good and effective leader.  —Aries Gonzales


November 12

            Pray for the family development session for the social welfare beneficiaries in a village so that they will learn on how to be responsible, God fearing and living with moral values.

Moore October Update: Praise that their container arrived. Students arrived and school began 10/2. Funds came in to make needed dorm repairs! A Gift of clothing to their students came in. God’s continued grace in giving Rory Moore and Kristy Moore what they need for each day! We are thankful that our church family supports the Moores in finances and prayer.

Pray for their fish farm and green house. Pray for their country. Pray for their students to come to work hard in school and come to Christ. The complete update is posted at church on the missions board. —Rory and Kristy Moore

Southwell Siftings– Friday, November 17
Dear Friends,
We trust you all have a blessed and enjoyable Thanksgiving celebration to God, our provider of all things.
Neighborhood Bible study: Some of our participants fled to the south for the winter, but we have 5 very faithful attenders plus Ev and me. One other neighbor couple is going to join us when we start up again November 30. We finished the first 20 event of The Story Of Hope – the Old Testament events. We will start the New Testament events November 30. Please continue pray with us for all participants to understand, embrace and retain the gospel message.
We completed the Roots of Faith New Testament study at our church. It was a great two years and many folks benefited by going through the overview of the message of both the Old and New Testaments.
November 6-7 I (Dave) enjoyed team teaching with Randy and Gil Thomas (International Director of Good Soil) a two day Foots of Faith introductory seminar in Hudsonville, OH for pastors and other church leaders.
David’s house in PA had to go into foreclosure as they were no longer able to make the payments and also rent in San Antonio. They tried for4-5 months for a short sale, but there were no takers. Randy also has not had anyone interested in buying his house in Brazil. He and Sarah continue to pay the motorcyclist $900/month and need prayer on decisions to make regarding seeking more legal advice. That has already cost them a significant amount. A sale of the house and a subsequent acceptance of an offer of payout would be the best solution, at least from our limited perspective.
Please pray for Christy as she has renewed and severe pain in the hip area. We thought this was past, but obviously is not.
Ev and I will spend Thanksgiving with Becca’s family, return home for our neighborhood Bible study, and then go to Wisconsin and Christy’s the first weekend in December to enjoy watching Brayden in a basketball tournament, Lord willing.
Rejoicing evermore,
Dave & Eve
