A Message From Pastor Tim
I am so pleased to see how The Well has grown to have such an impact in both our community and the world! Only God could have this kind of an impact with such a small church body!

"But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong"
(1 Corinthians 1:27, NIV).

In the past month, we have started to reach out to our community by monitoring a Facebook Page called the Lewisville Blabber. We have helped several desperate families through the compassion and giving of our church body. We will be holding a car wash this coming Sunday to raise money for our missionary friend, De'Ann Shields who is in Xai Xai Mozambique Africa for six months. We have also begun to build a relationship with Flower Mound Cares, an organization that is out to assist a vast population of homeless kids within the LISD school district. All of this is possible through your generosity and support.

Your tithes and offerings along with your dedication have made a difference in countless lives. I ask and pray that you all continue to grow in your love for Christ, grow in your love for each other, and grow in your love for the lost.

Together, we can be the light that shines on the darkness. Together, with Christ, we can be a church that shows His love and compassion to the lost. I ask you to please continue your support so that together we can continue to do incredible things in the name of Jesus Christ.

Many blessings to you and thank you all for your incredible support of this ministry!

We love you all!

Pastor Tim and Cindy

Introducing God, The Holy Spirit
Join us this Sunday at 10am for Pastor Tim's message, "Introducing God, The Holy Spirit". Jesus said:

"But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you" ... "But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.” (John 16:7; 13-15 NIV).
This Sunday, Pastor Tim's message will be on the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth that Jesus promised to send. We will look at who He is (yes, He is a person), and what His role is in our lives.
Because of your donations The Well Church has been able to address both spiritual and humanitarian needs
The Well Church is a 501(c3) non-profit Church. We use 99% of the Tithes and Offerings to Help Those in Need
The Apostle James tells us that, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world" - James 1:27 (NIV).

We thank you for all of your incredible gifts to this ministry. Please keep your donations coming!  Your tithes and offerings of physical items, money, and time are much appreciated by all who receive. And, as a bonus, you are blessed as the giver, too.

STRANGELY (un)Asian 
Happy Birthday - Stephanie (Oct 2)

Please continue praying for the Strange family in Thailand as they adjust to a new culture and the cost of living!  It's not always easy being the new person in the country. Read about their new adventures on their blog.
For Stephanie’s birthday dinner -  
Cam grilled burgers topped with cheese and bacon.  I know this looks ordinary and may see like a strange and easy birthday meal.

Let me break it down for you.
Beef (could be water buffalo): $14.19
Buns:  homemade
Bacon: $5
Tostitos chips: $8.39
Velveeta and rotel: only from America
Guacamole made with 3 avocados: $12
Cheese: $5
It isn’t ordinary.  It can’t be bought from one store.  And it isn’t easy.  It is a special treat and exactly what I wanted!

Changing lives through nutrition, education and spiritual Growth.

To learn more Manna WOrldwide, please go to the Manna Worldwide website.

Rick (our new MANNA Director) preached at Injili Baptist church Sunday where 3 accepted Christ, 22 new visitors and the local witch doctor came and heard the gospel. Their church, ALBC and MANNA Worldwide hosted a picnic that included feeding hundreds of people rice lunch, games for the children and provided bags of maze to each family. The church is a light in the community and Gods presence is so real.
