Into All the World: Volume 4, Issue 11

News From Travis & Mimi Dykes

Church Planters in Atlanta

The church is continuing to grow and souls are being saved. We are starting a campaign to get the name New Day Baptist Church out there. We have had some donations and a lot of help getting things this far. The Lord has blessed us with funding for several advertising needs. Now it’s up to the membership to hit the streets. I have spent the last four months training and counseling our launch team. We are prepared for who God places into our paths and for the obstacles that the devil may throw too. Our official launch date is scheduled for February 7, 2016. This will be the day that we are constituted and the members will sign the founding member roll that will be a forever memorial to the founding of God’s embassy here in Stockbridge, GA.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Psalm 100:4 says, “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”

We are thankful to God for a good November meeting. It was wonderful to see many of you there. I hope that you mark your calendars for our Fall 2016 meeting. It will be November 15-17. Dr. Jack Reiss will be our keynote speaker.

Dr. Garvin Dykes and his wife Faye will be traveling over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Please keep them in your prayers as they minister in both Ethiopia and Zambia. They will be home by the middle of December.

We are also thankful unto the Lord for you. Your faithful participation in prayer and provision for missions is noteworthy. Our prayer is that God will bless you and yours with a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. Happy Thanksgiving!

A Prayer from the Christiansens

Missionaries to Egypt

Heavenly Father, I ask that your Spirit would move and work in a mighty way in the hearts of the Egyptians. I pray you would bring us in contact with those whose hearts you are working in, open unto us a door of utterance to speak the mystery of Christ, and give us the boldness to step through it. I pray that we would speak not with man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, always ready to give an answer for the hope that is within. I ask that you pull down the walls of darkness and deception that prevent people from hearing Truth. Help us to love people the way you do, Lord. Use our family to show the love, joy, and peace that can only be found in Jesus. I pray our children would not have any bitterness about the work you have called us to, but will find great joy and blessing in serving you. We ask that multitudes of Egyptians would come to know you as Lord and Savior, and that you would give them a great passion to reach Muslims around the world with the gospel. I pray you would raise up men like Moses who will lead their people out of bondage as they follow you.

I ask that you fill us with the knowledge of your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding that we might walk worthy of you unto all pleasing. I pray that you work through us to be fruitful unto every good work today. Increase our knowledge of you, and strengthen us with all might according to your glorious power unto all patience and longsuffering. I ask that you strengthen the inner man within us. Teach us to worship you in spirit and in truth and to seek your face, privately, publicly, perpetually, and corporately. Teach us to give thanks in every circumstance, to think more positively, and to rejoice in how you saved us from hell. Remind us today to reckon ourselves dead indeed unto sin but alive unto you through Jesus Christ our Lord. Teach us to walk by faith and yield our members as instruments of righteousness. Teach us and remind us to watch and pray that we enter not into temptation and that we pray throughout the day and night and meditate on your word day and night. Help us to make you preeminent and love you with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

God, I pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all Jews. Teach us and remind us to make intercessory prayer for our friends, family, and foes. Send forth multitudes of laborers into your harvest field today and strengthen those already working physically, financially, mentally, and spiritually to continue the work, so everyone who has an ear to hear, will hear the gospel. I pray against all those who greatly withstand your words and the words of Christians who speak in your name (2 Tim. 4:14-15). I ask that you reward all those who attack your words, that you take them to heaven or hell today if they won’t repent, or constrain them so the Great Commission is not hindered. Please strengthen all the angels today, so they are not hindered from the work you would have them to do today. I pray you use both lost and saved people, holy angels, high ranking government officials, all government workers to open all the doors for the Great Commission. And Lord, I pray our hearts’ desire would always be to glorify you alone in all we do, and that you would receive the honor, glory, and praise you deserve.

The Christiansens are currently on furlough until January 2016.
