Please include our EBA churches in your daily prayers.

"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken."

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

"The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him..."

"Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed."
“This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."

Acts 1:14  
"They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers."

“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Missions in India

Since 2012, Pleasant Hill has been active with their ministry partnership in Delhi, India.  Plans are to continue this mission as long as God keeps the door open to help their national partners.  In January 2024, Pleasant Hill led a 12-member team to work with the local ministry partners.  Members from  Kedron, Prospect Southern Methodist, Harmony Baptist, Swansea First Baptist, and Restoration Baptist participated with the Pleasant Hill mission team.  Teaching from the book of Nehemiah was requested by their national partners; therefore, the pastors on the mission team taught for two days.  Other teachings were held at a youth meeting and at a women's meeting.  

During this trip, new friendships were made and relationships were strengthened.  Some of the members visited in a new area, a "tent city", where 3,000 people live in make-shift tents with no electricity or running water.  Pastor Timmy accepted the opportunity to preach there and was blessed to be able to bring God's Word to the people.  The team visited in many homes, sharing the Gospel and their testimonies.  The Delhi churches  are growing and many are committing to faith in Jesus.  Please keep our national partners in your prayers!

The couple from Swansea First Baptist, Charles and Sherry Burton, felt God calling them to the mission field as a result of this trip.  They have had some training with the IMB and will be leaving in August for Jaipur, India.  Please keep them in your prayers as they follow God's call to the mission field.
