MCUSA Thanksgiving Offering

Help start new church plants!


Thanksgiving reminds us of the many wonderful blessings we receive from God. It is also a time to consider how we can show our thankfulness. It is an opportunity to partner with the Missionary Church to open new ministries in the US and around the world.

Contributions last year made a difference with new ministries in Cuba, West Africa, Tennessee and Minnesota.

Your special offering this year will be used to open new ministries, provide discipleship training and plant new churches in the Mauritius Islands, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Afghanistan, Guam and Minnesota.

or make checks payable to Missionary Church, Inc.

Congrats & Prayer

Congratulations to Rick & Angela Hulse on the birth of Hudson William on Nov 15. Mom is home now but Hudson is still at Methodist Hospital--he had trouble breathing, was put on a ventilator, now receiving a little oxygen. they anticipate he will be released this week. Keep him in your prayers

Current Health Concerns

Norm Blaisdell continues to loose weight, is loosing blood, and is very week as a result. Currently, he's at Goldenrod Nursing Home for rehab and monitoring. PS: He has requested visitors, so if you're able, a visit to encourage and cheer would go a long way.

Larry Jones got some encouraging news recently, that the cancer they suspected in his lungs is not there, and the bone cancer is responding well to treatment (and prayer) and the tumor has shrunk. He's also feeling a little better and has been able to get out and around

Jake Stimson, David & Naomi's son, has potentially serious health issues. Tomorrow he will have tests to determine if he has colon cancer

Keep these all in your prayers for God's mighty touch upon their lives!

Urgent Prayer Needed!!

We're asking you to join us in praying for our dear sister, Jocelyn Barillas. She was on the team that visited us last month from our home church in Florida. Last Sunday she started coming down with flu like symptoms and went to the ER. They tested her for malaria but said it was just the flu. Two days later she was back in the ER as she couldn't catch her breath. They decided to sedate her and put her on a ventilator. Since then she has been diagnosed with malaria and mono. They have also flown her up to Gainesville, FL.  Jocelyn is still in a medically educed coma; her body is in septic shock and her organs are struggling. Here is the latest update from her sister:

Jocelyn was transferred to Shands over night. We just spoke to the doctor who was on duty when she came in (who,  get this, is from Cameroon!) She is waiting to to be evaluated by the infectious disease doctors. Until then they are treating her symptoms... They have told us that it doesn't look good. Her body is in shock and sepsis...We are walking by faith and not by sight. The docs are doing everything they can, but The Great Physician is in control. Please pray for WISDOM for the docs and for us. Pray that her kidneys will start working; her fever goes down.
When the team was here they were such a blessing. Many people gave their lives to the Lord and were set free from the power of darkness. We know that there is a real enemy who is not happy about the things that were accomplished here last month. We ask that you will stand with us in prayer for complete healing for Jocelyn, that her body will react well to the drugs, and that the doctors will have wisdom in treating her. Also keep her husband and two small girls in your prayers, this is not an easy time for them. Thank you so much and we will keep you updated.

Health Concerns, update

Keep these in your prayers:

Larry Jones has finished radiation and is on a chemo pill. He is still in a tremendous amount of pain. Recent visit to the doctor showed his chances for remission increasing!

Norm Blaisdell has a number of health issues; mobility, heart, tumors.

Let's pray for God to work, for their good health, for God to be glorified in and through their lives, and for joy & encouragement

Rick and Angela Hulse are expecting!

Angela is almost full term. Because she's had a C section before, she will probably need one again. Either way, let's pray for a healthy mom & baby!

Thanksgiving Dinner invite

One of our members has no family in the area and usually spends Thanksgiving alone. If you're able to have him over for dinner, I know he'd greatly appreciate it. Contact Pastor Scott for more info

Health Burkhalter / Las Vegas

Heath & Virginia Burkhalter were a part of our church until they moved to Las Vegas. There, Heath is a security guard. He is in a dangerous position, so let's pray God's hedge of protection around him. Last night there was a pretty tense stand-off, and after the recent Vegas shooting, you can imagine that the city is on alert.... He's a good brother! We miss him, his lovely wife and children.
