TURKMEN SEARCH FOR SECURITY, HOPE
 
Critically broken. These words describing the lives of Turkmen families are heavy with the weight of millions of hard choices.
Life in Turkmenistan, one of the most repressive countries in the world according to those in the region, causes many Turkmen to look for an escape route. Political and social stressors play a role, but a lack of basic necessities is the driving force.
“Life has been very difficult in Turkmenistan,” says Lara Bingham*, an IMB worker in Central Asia. “They’ve not had access to regular products, like flour and sugar. They’re standing in long lines each day just to get eggs.”
Feeling they have no options, mothers make the choice to leave babies with family members to find work in Turkey. Men move to Moscow as migrant laborers despite low wages and harsh treatment. Husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, children— Turkmen families are fractured and spun out across a continent to survive.
“There seems to be a desperation among the people. They can’t make ends meet within the country, so they go out,” explains Anthony Bingham*, Lara’s husband.
In Turkey alone, an estimated 1-2 million Turkmen people are working as migrants. The total Turkmen population within Turkmenistan is only about 4.5 million, so the large number of people leaving reflects the desperation families feel.
Sometimes that restlessness opens their hearts to answers beyond money. Some who move abroad are able to hear the gospel for the first time.
“God is doing things; people are coming to faith,” Anthony says. “But coming to faith means you are signing up for a rougher life.”
Persecution is rampant in Turkmenistan, where Islam is the majority religion and religious liberties are not protected. When people identify themselves as believers in Jesus, they risk losing their jobs. Their families often reject them, and police beatings and false accusations are common.
“Combine that with the already dysfunctional relational aspects of life, and believers really have a hard time,” Anthony says.
Despite this reality, some believers have returned to Turkmenistan “even though they feared it was a death sentence,” Lara says. Others are making plans to return. Lara sees this as a hopeful step for families stretched and broken in the quest for financial security.
Lara describes one couple who have put their faith in Jesus. They haven’t seen their son for years and they are realizing they need to go back and raise him in the faith.
“It’s a promising perspective for this one family. And it seems at least two other families are thinking along those same lines. It’s a systemic problem, but this newer generation might turn it around,” she says.
Join the vision to reaching the multitudes from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ. We can pray for the IMB missionaries and those whom they serve. Please financially give. Our goal for the Lottie Moon Offering is $2,000.
Due to the recent tornado devastation Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams are on standby in anticipation of being called to help in Kentucky. Other SBDR teams are working in the surrounding states. Working in these affected areas will include clean up, chainsaw work, mud out, and perhaps salvaging possessions for homeowners.
 
Everyone is welcome to go. For example one story is of a lady who could not do much work, but she was found handing out water for the crews and meeting other needs as well!
 
Other local Southern Baptist Churches are being contacted to form a team in anticipation of being involved and deployed in January. There will be onsite training to be qualified to serve through SBDR. Contact Wayne Melanson 620-626-9326 for more information.
 
From Frank McCrary, KNCSB State Director for Disaster Relief:
 
I have been in contact with most of the DR directors in the affected areas. Arkansas, Alabama, and Illinois are handling the damage in their states. Kentucky was hit the hardest. Ron Crow said they are still assessing the damage.
 
Illinois is sending to Kentucky an Incident Command team and chaplains right away; with other teams as needed. Missouri is doing hot meals tonight. I am sure they will be asking for more chaplains.
 
Chuck Neece has notified the associational coordinators to put their teams on STANDBY, just in case. I am expecting a national call from Sam Porter this afternoon or tomorrow morning with a needs assessment report. 
In the meantime, we 
  • Wait – for official news from the National DR team.  Any unauthorized deployment will result in a loss of ability to serve as an SBDR again. 
  • Pray – without ceasing for our neighbors. 
  • Watch – for emails from Chuck Neece with instructions and from Cecil Dale for information.

Hey Church – 

You’ve probably already heard that there are some changes coming regarding the staffing of our Kids Ministry. In the event that you haven’t heard, both Norma Jean Dodge, our Children’s Coordinator, and Nique Brown, our Nursery Coordinator, have prayerfully decided to step down from their respective positions effective December 31 this year. We’re incredibly grateful for their years of service and for the healthy way in which both ladies are pursuing this change! If you have any questions or concerns regarding the transition of Norma Jean or Nique, please take the time to seek these ladies out and talk to them directly.

As we look towards the future of our Kid’s Ministry here at First Southern Baptist Church, we will be pursuing a single, full time position for the role of Kid’s Coordinator (this position will include oversight of kids, birth – 5th grade). If you’re interested in this position, or know of someone who might be, check out the link below! If you have questions about the position, check out the link below! If you just want to be in the know about the details of this position, check out the link below! 

In the meantime, we would greatly appreciate your continued prayers for wisdom and understanding as the Personnel Team is seeking God’s will regarding the individual who will fill this role. 

Thank you, 
Pastor Mark

    WEST AFRICANS TAKE LEAD IN SHARING BIBLE STORIES

Mrs. Lombena transitions with ease from the standard West African greetings into the story of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery. The Togolese man listening to the story is quickly attentive to her vivid storytelling. What follows is a lively discussion about the truths and implications of the Bible story she had crafted into his native tongue.
With sincerity on his face, he asks her to pray for him in the name of Jesus, the One who came not to condemn but to save. Rev. Essodina Ayewa, her trainer who has been watching from the side, steps up to lay hands on the man as they pray.
“When you tell a story from the Word of God, it’s powerful! It affects someone. He listens, he is penetrated,” says Ayewa.
Lombena, along with nearly 40 other students, has recently graduated from a three-year program at the Baptist Bible Institute of Togo (IBBT). For the first time, their curriculum includes training in orality methods — one component of which is the art of crafting and sharing biblical stories with people who prefer oral communication methods over written ones.
“We hear about the joy that animates the people who listen to the Bible stories all the time,” reports IBBT director Rev. Dombe Tchalaré. This has led him to require that all students receive the training, and he envisions creating a dedicated “School of Orality” within the Bible institute.
Ayewa highlights how the orality training has been an important complement to their classic theological education.
The orality education is also unique as the first training in Togo being led entirely by African believers who were originally trained by IMB missionaries.
IMB missionary Katee Sheppard*, alongside a team of nationals in five countries, has been effectively using Bible storying for over a decade in a ministry to truck drivers. She says the drivers are normally closed to gospel conversations, but they love the stories.
Katee’s team understood the value of training more people and, to date, IMB missionaries have equipped more than 25 national orality trainers across several African countries. Together they have led orality workshops and seminars for thousands of believers representing dozens of languages.
Evangelist Seni Zoungrana is one of the trainers who leads orality workshops. He discusses both the joy and responsibility given by 
Revelation 7:9.
Joining the vision to reaching the multitudes from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ. We can pray for the IMB missionaries and those whom they serve. Please financially give. Our goal for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is $2,000.

Be sure to invite your friends, coworkers, and neighbors for this exciting Christmas teaching series!
International Mission Board (IMB) Lottie Moon Christmas offering.

IMB workers Skip and Kim Meyer* have spent their lives on two very different mission fields but with the same purpose: giving hope to people who need it and equipping others to do the same.
The Meyers moved to South Asia in 2004 with the desire to plant their lives in an area with a great need for the gospel. Their lives on the mission field started, however, in South America where they grew up as friends — each the child of missionaries. After they married, they knew continued service in international missions was their calling.
The region’s 1.7 billion people occupy an area less than half the size of the U.S. God is using Skip and Kim’s knowledge of the Spanish language and Latino culture to mobilize Hispanics and Latinos to serve countries in South Asia that have a desperate need for the gospel.
As the Meyers have gone to some of the least-reached areas of South Asia, they’ve ministered alongside and trained Hispanic and Latino Christians who are committed to seeing the gospel reach regions it has never been before.
Skip says it is a joy to see them being obedient to God’s call to share the good news in South Asia. The Meyers are strong advocates of the mobilization of churches from Spanish-speaking cultures.
The Meyers frequently host training events for Hispanic volunteers and long and short-term workers. Skip says that leading them to become faithful and effective long-term missionaries is a goal.
Skip and Kim said the impetus for their partnership and mobilization of Hispanics and Latinos came through a connection with Hispanic Southern Baptists from Chicago who came on multiple short-term trips. The Lord also facilitated a connection with a short-term team from South America who traveled to South Asia to serve around the same time.
Antonio Morales* joined one of the volunteer teams from Chicago and stayed several weeks longer before returning to the U.S.
“This was pivotal in his decision to follow the Lord to South Asia. He went back, convinced his wife Ana*, and the rest is history,” Skip says. Antonio and Ana are now strategy leaders with the IMB.
Joining the vision to reaching the multitudes from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ, We can pray for the IMB missionaries and financially give. Our goal for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is $2000.

Hey Church –

In the event that you haven’t heard, both Norma Jean Dodge, our Children’s Coordinator, and Nique Brown, our Nursery Coordinator, have prayerfully decided to step down from their respective positions effective December 31 this year.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the transition of Norma Jean or Nique, please take the time to seek these ladies out and talk to them directly.

As we look towards the future of our Kid’s Ministry here at First Southern Baptist Church, we will be pursuing a single, full time position for the role of Kid’s Coordinator (this position will include oversight of kids, birth – 5th grade).

Missionaries welcome efforts to push back darkness North Africa and Middle East


The mission strategy of Henderson Hills Baptist Church in Oklahoma was forever changed when their missions pastor read a statistic: “5% of missions work is done in North Africa and Middle East.” After reading this startling fact, Mike knew the Lord was calling him to lead his church in reversing the statistic in their own mission strategy.
Otis Neumann*, a missionary with IMB’s Northern African and Middle Eastern Affinity, appreciates the advocacy of Mike and his church. “His vision has inspired others, including Hispanic churches and the Oklahoma Baptist Convention, to make NAME peoples a priority for prayer and missions work,” Otis says.
For two years Mike and the missions team prayed about a specific, unreached people group. Along with a team from their church, Mike and his wife traveled to Europe in 2012. They met an IMB missionary who gave them a glimpse into how God was at work among NAME peoples there.
Otis says that coming to Europe first to connect with immigrants from NAME is a good way for churches to develop a love for the people and make them a priority in their mission vision. “Europe is a modern crossroads of people from Northern Africa and the Middle East,” he explains. “From Europe, SBC churches have the unique opportunity to partner with IMB and share the gospel with people who come from some of the most difficult to access places in the world.”
Two years after their trip to Europe, Mike and his missions team made their first trip into Northern Africa. Since that first trip, the church has sent multiple mission teams every year. They focus on building relationships, prayer walking and meeting community needs. In February 2020, the church sent a missionary couple from their church to Northern Africa to serve with the IMB. Even during the height of the pandemic when travel was restricted, the church looked for ways to support the work overseas through prayer and encouragement.
Otis and other missionaries pray for more churches to be bold in their mission efforts. “When churches partner with IMB, we can do more together – and there is so much left to do in Northern Africa and the Middle East,” Otis says.
Joining the vision to reaching the multitudes from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ, We can pray for the IMB missionaries and financially give. Our goal for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is $2,000.

Hey Church – 

You’ve probably already heard that there are some changes coming regarding the staffing of our Kids Ministry. In the event that you haven’t heard, both Norma Jean Dodge, our Children’s Coordinator, and Nique Brown, our Nursery Coordinator, have prayerfully decided to step down from their respective positions effective December 31 this year. We’re incredibly grateful for their years of service and for the healthy way in which both ladies are pursuing this change! If you have any questions or concerns regarding the transition of Norma Jean or Nique, please take the time to seek these ladies out and talk to them directly.

As we look towards the future of our Kid’s Ministry here at First Southern Baptist Church, we will be pursuing a single, full time position for the role of Kid’s Coordinator (this position will include oversight of kids, birth – 5th grade). If you’re interested in this position, or know of someone who might be, check out the link below! If you have questions about the position, check out the link below! If you just want to be in the know about the details of this position, check out the link below! 

In the meantime, we would greatly appreciate your continued prayers for wisdom and understanding as the Personnel Team is seeking God’s will regarding the individual who will fill this role. 

Thank you, 
Pastor Mark

                                     Fall Teaching Series!!

Join us as we continue our fall teaching series: Holy Ghost Stories, Astonishing Tales From the Book of Acts!  This series will take us through 13 different accounts of the Holy Spirit leading the early church of Jesus Christ. This is such an exciting teaching series because the same Holy Spirit that equipped the early church to serve, love, and impact their world for Jesus is the same Holy Spirit who is at work in us today!  Don’t miss it!  Be sure to bring a friend along! 
December 5th marks the start of our Lottie Moon Christmas offering!
Churches connect with missionary task Central America and the Caribbean.
Tim and Tina Louderback and Sean and Shelley Blacksten are passionate about equipping and connecting churches with opportunities to serve in Central America and the Caribbean. The Louderbacks and the Blackstens serve with the International Mission Board in Panama, and the Louderbacks lead the Americas Connect program.
PRAYER REQUESTS:
  • Pray for inroads for Indigenous believers who are reaching the lost.
  • Pray churches who participated in Americas Connect will continue to pursue opportunities to serve.
  • Pray the Lord will facilitate more church connections and opportunities to serve.
This week we can pray for Sean and Shelley Blacksten, Tim and Tina Louderback who many of us know right here from our community. While the Louderbacks are fully funded they hope to have groups from FSBC join them in reaching those in Panama City. And YES we are working on sending a small group in early 2022!
This offering is unique in that 100% of our gifts provide for missionaries all over the world. It is a valuable part of Southern Baptists’ 175-year history of reaching the nations with the gospel and vital to reaching the vision of a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ. Our goal this year to support our IMB missionaries is $2,000.
This week’s video is of William Haun, IMB missionary working through “Send Relief” in the African village of Kolinvaai.

“Treasuring God in Our Christmas Traditions”
Sunday, December 12
2:30-4:30 p.m.
at Shari Abbott’s home, 2431 Lilac
“Will the next generation treasure God because of our family traditions?  Noel Piper believes that by our traditions we can help the next generation treasure God, and at the same time deepen our own love for him…He uses God-centered traditions and Bible-saturated family patterns and grace-laden heirlooms.  Year in and year out our traditions can show children that God is our Treasure.  With family traditions rooted firmly in the Bible, the next generation absorbs the truth that the treasure we have in God is ancient in wisdom and strength—and fresh as the morning dew.”—from Treasuring God in Our Traditions by Noel Piper
Join us
for an afternoon of inspiration, sharing, music, and Christmas snacks, as we are reminded of the opportunity we as women are privileged to have of leaving a legacy for “treasuring God in our Christmas traditions.”
If you would be willing to help with snow removal on Sunday mornings when needed here at the church, please contact Rick Keating at 620-629-3138.

As I think of Thanksgiving approaching this  year my thoughts are much different than years past.

As most of you know, Sharon and I have had quite a year.  Spending many days in hospitals for various reasons.
We are thankful for God’s faithfulness and the strength he has given us through it all.  HE has also shown us how much our church family cares and put it into action.  We do not have adequate words to express our appreciation for the thoughtful cards, flowers and meals that we have received along with the many prayers. This year at Thanksgiving we will be focused a lot more on the love of God and his people and less on worldly blessings.

THANK YOU! 
Jimmie and Sharon Farr

             Angel Breakfast: A Morning of Remembrance

Before all the busyness of the Christmas Holiday begins, let’s get together to celebrate the true reason for the season.  FSBC Children’s Ministry would like to invite families to come together at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021 for pancakes and sausage prepared by the deacons and hear the Christmas story.  Then, families with children are invited to participate in a few Christmas crafts as well as take pictures with the angel. Crafting should be complete by 10:30-11:00am; however, it is fine to leave as soon as your family is finished. Please RSVP by Friday, Nov. 5, 2021, here or the Church Center App.

The Children’s Ministry is in need of volunteers to help assist the children with the craft projects.  If interested in helping,  please contact Norma Jean Dodge children@fsbcliberal.com.   We hope you will join us in preparing for the Christmas season.
 Don’t forget to turn your clock back 1 hour  on Saturday night Nov. 6th.

         2021 Viola Webb Offering for State and Associational Missions
 
Every fall FSBC collects the Viola Webb Mission Offering. This is a split between KNCSB (Kansas Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptist) and WKBA (Western Kansas Baptist Association).
 
“Celebrating 75 years of sharing the Gospel in Every Town, City and Campus” is the offering theme for 2021-22.
 
This offering will help support KNCSB church planting, collegiate work, church health, and disaster relief. It will also be used by WKBA for Hispanic outreach and ministry, starting new works, bivocational pastoral support, and education.
 
The offering is named for Viola Webb who led Kansas-Nebraska Woman’s Missionary Union for 1959 to 1982. KNCSB named the offering in her honor after she retired.
Our goal for this year’s September – October offering is $2,000.

This offering will help support KNCSB church planting, collegiate work, church health, and disaster relief. It will also be used by WKBA for Hispanic outreach and ministry, starting new works, bivocational pastoral support, and education.
 
The offering is named for Viola Webb who led Kansas-Nebraska Woman’s Missionary Union for 1959 to 1982. KNCSB named the offering in her honor after she retired.
Our goal for this year’s September – October offering is $2,000.
