From Brother James Calhoun
Dear Praying Friends,

Linda and I were with New Hope MBC of Hot Springs today. I preached in the
morning service, enjoyed lunch with the church, and then gave the missions
presentation in the afternoon. Tonight we attended Faith MBC of Arkadelphia
with our family and enjoyed hearing Bro. Loyd Roper who was filling in

I continue to do the Wednesday night adult Bible study for Faith MBC of

Please pray for Linda and me as we seek to promote the work of ASMP and our
state missionaries. I am available to visit your church. Please call or
send me an email for available dates.

God Bless,
Bro. Calhoun

As of June 28 we have received $73,590.68 for the May Mission Emphasis
offering. I continue to pray that we will reach our goal of $75,000. Last
year we received $2,535.25 after July 1. I do not know if any more will
come in, but hopefully we will receive enough more to reach the goal.
Regardless, I am thrilled at the response to this years appeal. If your
church has not sent an offering for this goal, please consider doing so.

There is a great possibility that we will have two new state missionaries to
consider at our meeting in November.
A church is considering taking the work in Mt. Home and placing a
missionary there to rebuild that work. As you know, First MBC of Cave City
has procession of the property. The church considering the work would be a
good fit I believe.
East Union MBC of Hensley has been deeded the property of Grace MBC of
Little Rock which closed their doors. Bro. Roberts, pastor of East Union
called to say they are looking to begin a multi cultural ministry in the
Grace facilities. I am excited about the prospects and ask you to pray
about this.

Our quarterly meeting of the committee will be Tuesday, August 13, at 10:00
a.m. and will be hosted by Calvary MBC of Magnolia. Brother Carter talked
to me about them having a Monday night service for those in the area and
those coming in on Monday for the meeting Tuesday. Their plans are to meet
at 7:00 p.m. for a time of worship and fellowship. Brother Roger Copeland
of Texarkana will be bringing the message and they are inviting a singing
group to present special music. After the service they plan to serve
refreshments for a time of fellowship. We will be sending out information
on a motel to use in the next couple of weeks.

The following note comes from Bro. Foster's son, Kevin...
Dad's old earthly body gave up the fight about 1:00 AM this morning. He is
in a much better place now, and although we are very sad that he is gone
from us - we are very thankful for the assurance of presence with our Lord &
We want to say Thank You to each and every one for all your prayers.

call or fill in.

Please remember him and Sister Norris in prayer.

Bro. Triplett recently celebrated his 95th birthday. Last Sunday Linda and
I were at Central MBC of Warren. Bro. Triplett had a bad spell that morning
and was taken to the hospital. After lunch we visited him in the ER just
before he was dismissed to home. He was doing better but certainly needs
our prayers.

pneumonia. Please remember him and Sister Miller in your prayers.

under attack.
