January --- Month of Prayer and Fasting
Many churches declare January as a month of prayer and fasting. I want to encourage the IPCC churches, pastors, ministers, and missionaries to spend some time fasting and praying the remainder of this month. Pray that God will minister to the Pastors of the IPCC. Pray that God will continue to protect our missionaries overseas. Pray that God will continue to unite our Conference. Pray that every church in the IPCC will be a beacon of hope to their communities. Pray that the IPCC will grow and prosper. Pray that 2017 is the best year yet for the IPCC!!!
Urgent Prayer Requests:
Prayer request for IPCC Missionary, Edith Greet. This prayer request was posted from one of Edith's newphews on Facebook:
Friends of Edith Greet please pray!
Today My great Aunt Edith who has been a Missionary in India for over 70 years, will be undergoing hernia surgery. She's been experiencing a lot of pain and they have decided to operate and repair the hernia. She's 96 years old, and any surgery can have complications, but adding to the procedure at her age, is making us all a bit anxious. Pray for her aged body to be strong enough to endure the surgery. Pray for a successful surgery and for her pain to be alleviated.
Pray for Trenton Hughes. From his grandfather, Rev. Clyde Hughes
Urgent Prayer Request - As a family, we were concerned that Grandson, Trenton passed on a promising job to return to Kenya with no support, a place and people who have stolen his heart. We were more concerned when, upon his return, Field Secretary Rick Koetz said he was sending him to South Sudan to help Missionary Ester, a single missionary from our Brazilian church about the age of his mother. But now, Ester has been recalled to Brazil for three months and needs someone to hold down the fort for her with the two churches and the school. Rick and Carol are taking him on the 8 or 10 hour drive within the week with 2 weeks worth of food. (He has already proven he can eat what we would never attempt.) There are 2 or 3 Sudanese brethren who can help. There are classes to teach, youth to lead and the churches to care for. South Sudan, among 200 nations is now rated the 5th most dangerous. He is nervous about it all, but there is no talking him out of it. Please pray for his safety, sustenance and rapid maturity in leadership skills and wisdom.

One Heart Community Church, Stockbridge, GA:
My family and I had the privilege of being guests at One Heart Community Church in Stockbridge, GA on New Year's Day. It was an honor to preach there. I preached the message "Don't Lose Your Dream!" I encouraged the church to never give up on their dreams. One Heart Community recently paid off their McDonough property. Their vision is to plant a new church in McDonough and operate two campuses. Pastor Randy and Donna Davis have been at the church for 14 years. I am always impressed with their organization, planning and quality of service. After the service my family and I had lunch with pastor Randy and Donna Davis and IPCC Ministers, Frank Angié and Christine Greaver.
CrossOver Ministries, Jackson, GA:
My family and I visited CrossOver Ministries where Pastor David Morris is the pastor. We are always blessed by the enthusiasm of the the church. Pastor David Morris preached a message on "Who are the Overcomers?" It was an encouraging message as he challenged the people to rise above any attack they are facing. After service we had a time of fellowship with David and Christy Morris.
Living Faith Tabernacle, Forrest Park, GA:
Pastor Randy and Donna Davis, Pastor Doris Blevins, IPCC minister, Christine Greaver and myself visited Living Faith Tabernacle in Forrest Park, GA. It was for Chris Bowen's last service as Pastor of the church. Chris and Kathy Bowen served as pastors of the church for 27 years. Chris Bowen is a former IPCC minister and South Eastern District Overseer of the IPCC. The new Pastor is Jeremy Tuck. Keep the church in prayer.
