MEMBERS OF CALIFORNIA CHURCHES LOSE HOMES IN WILDFIRE
On the tails of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Northern California experienced devastating wildfires. Homes of members from two Northern California Regular Baptist churches burned to the ground. Regular Baptist Builders Club is ready to assist as needs are assessed. Please keep these brothers and sisters in Christ in your prayers and donate to the Disaster Relief Fund.

PRAYER FOR ALL-PARTNERS IPFBM CONFERENCE
Church leaders associated with the International Partnership of Fundamental Baptist Ministries are participating in the third All-Partners IPFBM Conference, Nov. 6–10, in the Philippines. The conference theme, “Global Construction Zone,” focuses on church planting and reflects Matthew 16:18, where Jesus said, “I will build My church.”
The conference aims for guests to get acquainted, build relationships, share ministry ideas, and collaborate on ministry projects. “Conferences provide the platform for association leaders to recognize that interdependence is the key to exponential progress in fulfilling the Great Commission assignment,” says Chris Hindal, director of Regular Baptist International.
H. C. Stephen, president of the IPFBM Council of Eight, will open the conference. Featured speakers will be Cyrus Wanyonyi of Kenya, J. D. Enosh of India, Phillip Fernandez of the Philippines, and Hoi Cung Tum of Myanmar. In addition to hearing messages from these ministry partners, guests will attend afternoon workshops, morning and evening worship sessions, and three ministry tracks; participate in a dedicated prayer time; hear reports from ministry partners; and enjoy free time.
