  • Josh and Becky Tancordo
    3266 Beechdale St
    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15227

    James serves as a church planter. Please pray for our ministry this week with a mission team from First Baptist Church of Fairburn, GA. We are visiting local business with appreciation packages and inviting them to a Community Cookout. Please pray that we would have fruitful conversations and gain valuable contacts.

    Robert Winter
    P.O. Box 8777
    Myrtle Beach, SC 29578

    Robert is an evangelism catalyst serving as volunteer coordinator for Impact Ministries of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Please continue to pray for the 25 volunteer church teams and 700 volunteers who are reaching our tourists in Myrtle Beach. Pray that they would be able to share the love of Jesus with some of our 15 million visitors. We tell each volunteer group that God has set up divine appointments for each of them, and it is their job to recognize that and to share Jesus with them. Pray for me as I coordinate the times and places for these groups to minister.

    Brian and Melissa Shepard
    2121 Third Street  #414
    San Francisco, CA 94107

    Brian is a church planter apprentice in California serving as lead pastor. First of all, thank you for your prayers and your notes of encouragement! We seem to be a big hit in the South! Because of your prayers, we are seeing God move and work with doors opening to work with various people and nonprofits in our community, which is part of our strategy of building relationships and reaching people. Brian completed his XP role at Western Hills June 30 and has received his last paycheck. We have prayed, Brian has looked into jobs, and our directive so far is to wait and to trust in the Lord. Additionally, we are praying and seeking ministry partners to pray, give and go and additional core and launch team members to come alongside to serve as we seek to grow our church to at least 35 people by the end of August. We have been blessed with summer missionaries for seven weeks and with missions teams who have come to serve; however, we are looking for long-term people to come and plant with us! We plan to start meeting regularly on Sunday, August 9. Finding a space has been challenging at best! Working with public spaces (parks, schools) is a challenge. They are closed to the idea of having religious gatherings, and this makes it difficult for us to find a space that is affordable. Our emotions are high. Our faith is definitely challenged, but this is what we know: God has called us to this neighborhood of Dogpatch and Potrero Hill in San Francisco to start a church! We are building relationships and doors are opening to work alongside several nonprofits for the good of this community, and we have received no other directive from the Lord other than to continue and to trust. Please pray for perseverance, boldness, faith, courage, trust and resources (people and money). We love and appreciate all of you! Thank you for your prayers! Brian and Melissa

    Gary and Robin Comer
    1651 Sutter Ln.
    Corona, CA 92879

    Gary is an evangelism catalyst serving with Soul Whisperer Ministries in California. My role at NAMB is to spur the evangelistic-mission development of churches. Having addressed their core team, pray for Grace Church in Corona as they mobilize. Also, lift up Pathways Church in Santee as they consider using my Launch Point book to expand their outreach. Finally, I am connecting with Pastor Jim Boyd to provide training for his core group in Alaska.

    Chaplains Ric and Gwenn Worshill
    P.O. Box 6083
    Lindenhurst, IL 60046

    Ric and Gwenn serve as chaplains in Illinois. Chaplain Ric will be retiring soon from 30 years of duty as a police patrol officer and duty chaplain. Please pray for the Lord to send and lead him as he serves full time in the ministry of emergency services and police chaplaincy. He also needs prayer as he is volunteering in service to the Jewish evangelists and missionaries of the Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship. Please pray for Chaplain Gwenn to be strong as she continues in chaplaincy and teaching Bible study. We ask the Lord to send us to people who need the gospel and the love and comfort of Christ through salvation. Also pray that the Lord will show us how to encourage the saints around us, in Christ.

    Will and Doris Kratt
    P.O. Box 1462
    Mableton, GA 30135

    Will is a church planting intern serving as a church planter and lead pastor in Georgia. Joy Community Church is a church plant in Cobb County in west-metro Atlanta. We are currently in the core group phase, evangelizing the lost and meeting regularly to undergo leadership development, team building and discipleship training. Please pray for my wife, Doris, me and our three boys. Please pray that our core group and missional community are completely sold out to reproducing disciples who make disciples of Jesus Christ. Specifically, please pray that God would bless and send the people, provisions and His perfect plan for this effort! Thank you for your prayers!

    Jose and Omayra Ponce
    61 Avenida Chavez
    Isabela, PR 00662

    Jose serves as a church planting intern in Puerto Rico. I need prayers for my city of Isabela, which has a population of 45,631 and no Southern Baptist church. Pray the Lord will open doors for us to find a free or low-cost location to begin a Bible study group. Pray that the Lord will bless our work for Him in this city where I grew up. When I was young, I had some legal problems, but God changed me. Pray for me as this is my first time working in ministry in my city. We talk about Jesus all the time, but never before have I done ministry in Isabela. Thanks.

    Kevin and Laurie Riley
    3895 Church St.
    Clarkston, Georgia 30021

    Kevin is an evangelism catalyst serving with the Clarkston International Bible Church near Atlanta, Georgia. Pray that believers in the home/cell groups will be faithful to share the gospel with their family, neighbors and friends. Pray that God will lead us to persons of peace among African, Middle Eastern and Asian people groups. Pray that God will raise up leaders among these people groups.
