Prayer Requests –

Please pray for my husband, Pastor David Dever. He is pastor of Landmark Missionary Baptist Church in Hermiston, OR.

On Wednesday, August 20th, he received a diagnosis of a rare, agressive Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor which is an aggressive form of a sarcoma. It is located in the quad muscle of his left leg and is pretty much the entire muscle.

They will be treating him aggressively in Portland, OR. We head back there for tests and his port placement Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Thankfully, there are hotels in the city who donate rooms to cancer patients and their caregivers. Although we have a couple of homes that are open to us from brothers and sisters in Christ, which I will be thankfully utilizing.

We are waiting for approval to begin taking a chemo therapy pill. Two weeks after beginning the pill, he will go back for his first of 6 in-hospital chemo treatments (3-4 days in hospital each time) with radiation happening once or twice. After the first set of 3 treatments he will have the tumor removed followed by 3 more chemo treatments. It will take 6-8 months to complete the treatment with years of follow-up. He will be able to walk after the surgery with some therapy and possibly with a cane for stability.

His spirits are good, and he is hoping to continue working his secular job throughout the treatment, but that will depend on how he handles the chemotherapy.

Would appreciate your prayers for him, myself, our 16-year old son (Josh) and our church family, as we walk this together.

If you would like to send encouraging cards or letters, please feel free to do so. Our address is: Bro. David Dever, 822 S Hwy 395 PMB153, Hermiston, OR 97838.

Thank you in advance for your prayers. God is in control, and we are seeking His strength and peace.

Thanks,
Debbie Dever

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Greetings in the Lord! The members of North Hills Missionary Baptist Church in Helena, Montana are writing to inform you of our search for a pastor, and to spread the word regarding the status of the churches of the Montana State Association.

On Wednesday, June 4, Bro. Ty Carlson resigned as pastor of North Hills Missionary Baptist Church and informed us of his decision to accept the call to pastor Faith Missionary Baptist Church in Okanogan, Washington. Please pray for them as they relocate from Helena to serve the Lord in Okanogan.

North Hills MBC is praying the Lord will send us a biblically-grounded man, willing to serve in Helena as our pastor.  Our church is in full fellowship with the American Baptist Association (ABA) and recommends referencing the Doctrinal Statement of the ABA as an overview of our commonly-held beliefs. 

We also ask that you pray for the people of Helena that they may come to know Christ as Savior and serve Him in the local New Testament church. For more information regarding North Hills and our search for a pastor, please reference our contact information at the end of this letter.

In addition to our own search, we ask prayers for our sister church, Libby MBC in Libby, Montana.  We would also like to make known the interest of a new work being established in the Bozeman/Gallatin Gateway/Big Sky area of Southwestern Montana. North Hills MBC has one couple, Jared and Brianna McFarlin, who travel two hours from the town of Big Sky to be part of the work in Helena. They are seriously praying for God’s will to be done in this matter.

We appreciate your love, prayers, and support for the Lord’s churches in Montana.

In Christ’s Love,

North Hills Missionary Baptist Church
