Prayer Request - Continued:
Web Master, SBMF Brother, Craig Talley in Antioch Illinois is seriously ill
and he has been out of work as a brick layer for some time. Craig is
a brother who has been helping us and numerous other ministries gain a
productive web presence. Craig's wife Renee has been supporting the
family by herself while Craig is on the bench. The continuing concern is for
health as it appears she has a mass of some type in the upper sigmoid
colon and we are praying for a swift diagnosis of something treatable and
relief from the pain and disability she is suffering. Renee has been
having procedures and tests at Condell Medical Center.

one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. [1

and Michele Fielding ( new members of the SBMF) are establishing Beth
Chaim as a Messianic Missions Church to lead our Jewish Kinsman into the
Kingdom and to provide Jewish roots teachings the local Churches. They are
praying for a Baptist Church sponsor that will allow them to be a
Messianic Mission of the SBC in the Atlanta area. They will be
teaching the Word and holding Biblical feast calibrations and holiday
services for their congregation.
Chaim is meeting two Saturday's per
month and one Saturday evening. Their first Havdalla Fellowship and
Shabbat services went very well. The SBMF and several members of the SBMF
are working with the Georgia State Convention and local ministers to help
start this mission as a successful Church plant. We at the SBMF and
all of our brothers and sisters in the SBC need to pray for this new
Adonai Messianic Baptist Fellowship, Wichita, KS. (Mike Saffle):
HaShem Adonai, Blessed be the name of the Lord. This summer we have been
able to see amazing works of our great God. We arrived home from the SBC
convention on June 18th tired and excited. I came back to Wichita with a
renewed vision of the work here. Little did I Know how quickly that vision
would move forward. On Monday June 19th, the day after arriving home, I
met for breakfast with a brother in Christ. On my way home I passed a
building that sits on the corner of a major intersection in the downtown
area. Our congregation has been meeting in a little Baptist church
building for nearly two years and have been praying for God's direction
about moving. As I was passing this building I was compelled to turn into
the little parking lot and dial the number on the for rent sign.
the next eight days I saw the hand of God at work. The man who answered
the phone, Larry Cook, was not just any guy he is a believer. Larry is a
man raised as a Baptist, attended a church that I attended for six years
while I was there, and has been convicted by God about keeping Shabbat.
When I called him and told him that I was the Pastor of a church
interested in his building he was interested in talking to me. Within 24
hours Larry and I had talked three or four times and I had shared with him
about our ministry and what we believe. Needless to say Larry was excited
and so was I. Over the next
seven days God moved in a mighty way. Almost all of my congregation had
been notified about the building and started praying. On Saturday we had
our weekly service and the unofficial vote was unanimous. The congregation
was on fire. On Sunday, June
26th, one week after arriving home from the conference, we had an
emergency board meeting to vote on whether to pursue the
building. Within the first five minutes of the board meeting the vote was
a unanimous yes without any discussion necessary. By the end of the
meeting we had a new budget set which included the rent and utilities for
the new building, and a commitment from all board members to raise
there giving to accommodate the raise in the budget.
the past six weeks our tithes and offerings have increased and we received
a special gift of $2000 for things needed for the new building. Larry and
his crew, some of which are believers, worked overtime to get the building
ready for our first service on July the 22nd. And by this Saturday all of
little stuff will be fixed or in place for our dedication service.
sign went in the window of the new building on July 21st and we have had
as many calls about our ministry in two week at this location as we had in
two years at the other. God is truly on the move and we are excited to see
the things he is doing. Please
pray for us as we seek God's face in this new place.
Love in Messiah,
welcome all the new brothers and sisters who have joined the SBMF. We
also welcome all of the brothers and sisters who are inquiring about SBMF
at the Lake County Fair (Lake County Illinois):
I can say is Baruch Ha'Shem Yeshua. The time we had at the Lake County
Fair booth was awesome. G-d is good all the time. Many were praying
for people to come to the booth who needed to hear the Salvation Message.
Many prayers were answered. Several people came, talked and prayed to
receive Yeshua (Jesus) as their Messiah. We gave out just under 3,000 fans with the
words "Do You Know" on one side. The other side had the Bridge
Message To Salvation as a track. We gave out numerous tracks. We passed
out 119 Frisbees, to children, with the
same question and John 3:16 on a sticker.

news about our brother and SBMF friend Jack Kinsella:
Please pray for the new move of the Omega Letter Ministry.
Brother Jack is starting
out on a road trip speaking
tour. He will be speaking all over the USA. Gwenn and I have
learned so much from his writings. We have been reading his

have been published in some secular publications. The L-rd has given
Jack a clear message about Biblical prophecy and the times we are in right
If you are interested in having brother Jack come and speak at your
congregations, you can contact him directly or contact me. Here is a
chance to bring a teaching to your congregation about how we, as kadoskim found
in Yeshua, can help Israel and the people who the Covenants were given.
This is also good teaching on the prophetic importance of the signs of the

is he who comes in the name of the L-rd! [Ps
But be sure of
this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the
thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed
his house to be broken into. For
this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour
when you do not think He will. [Matthew 24:43-44 NASU]

Eddie Lofton, and his wife Barbara, are active members and messengers to the
Lake County Baptist Association. Lake County, Illinois. We serve
together in our local SBC Association.
members of the Body, friends and fellow bond-servants in Yeshua, I think this
is a story that needs to be told. So often we think that it is too hard
to work the mission field. We need to hear encouraging news about
missions that function by the blessing of G-d. As many in ministry,
Eddie and Barbara work several ministries to build up the Body. Please
pray for Brother Eddie and Barbara as they go on mission to India in October.

in Zion, Illinois where he and his parents attended the First Baptist Church.
His father was a deacon and they were actively involved in all of the church
was not unusual during those days of the early 1950’s, to have missionaries
come to his house for a meal or even to spend the night. Being the only child,
Eddie was usually allowed to sit around and listen to hours and hours of
story about the missionary’s experience. It only came natural that
Eddie would surrender to
preach at the young age of 16. Later, he went on to seek a high education at Luther Rice
Seminary and Clarkesville School Of Theology.
early 1973 he was given the opportunity to serve with a new missionary agency,
Evangelism to Communist Lands, ministering to the needs of people behind the
iron curtain. For the next 13 years he traveled on behalf of the Suffering
Church Ministries. He wasn’t home much, traveling 280 days a year, speaking in
churches throughout the United States. There were also trips into Eastern
Europe where Eddie trained carriers and introduce young Christians to Bible
was very blessed to have the support of family and friends, especially his local church First Baptist Church of Winthrop Harbor, Illinois.
a number of years now, Eddie and Barbara have been carrying on the ministry through New
Creations Ministry. They are currently preparing for a second trip to
Bangalore, India to minister with Dr. Samuel Issmer. They also serve as
Minister of Missions for First Baptist Church of Winthrop Harbor, Illinois.
They are supported in this work by their friends and family. Praise G-d for
