MEN: Let us be the Spiritual Warriors God called us to be for our families and our nation.

Deadline is May 15th. Bring a friend and get equipped for SURVIVAL

Reminder: Get Registered by April 15 for a special prize drawing!

Pass it on! | TMCI 2017 First Annual Men’s Retreat; June 2-4, 2017

Dear Friends,
As I registered for the Men’s Retreat, I remembered a men’s fellowship we had in Indiana. I remember the friendships that were made, but the thing I remember most was the power we felt as we prayed for each other, our families and our nation.

There seems to be a special move of the Holy Spirit when men come together to encourage and pray for and with each other.

So, let’s fulfill Heb 10:25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. NTL

Now, more than ever, we need to come together to encourage and strengthen each other so we can be the Spiritual Warriors God called us to be for our families and our nation.

Please register as quickly as possible so we will know how many beds we need. No registration will be accepted after May 15; however, IF YOU REGISTER BY APRIL 15TH YOU WILL BE ENTERED INTO THE DOOR PRIZE ($50 VISA CARD) DRAWING.

Please note when you register, only a $25 nonrefundable fee is required to reserve your room and meals. You can pay the $100 balance monthly or at the door. Advance registration will allow us to make appropriate arrangements for all.

Looking for a great empowerment from God at this Men’s Retreat.
Bishop Bob Coulter

Annual Electronic Filing Requirement for Small Exempt Organizations — Form 990-N (e-Postcard)

Planned Outage: April 2, 2017
This service will be unavailable on Sunday, April 2, 2017, from approximately 1 a.m. until approximately 1 p.m. Eastern time, due to planned maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience.

How to file

To electronically submit Form 990-N, Electronic Notice (e-Postcard) for Tax-Exempt Organizations Not Required to File Form 990 or Form 990EZ, use the Form 990-N Electronic Filing System (e-Postcard).

The Form 990-N electronic-filing system moved from Urban Institute’s website to IRS.gov in February 2016. All filers must register at IRS.gov prior to filing their next Form 990-N. This is a one-time registration; you won’t be asked to register again when filing next year.

Form 990-N must be completed and filed electronically. There is no paper form.

Form 990-N filers may choose to file a complete Form 990 or Form 990-EZ instead.

Use the Form 990-N Electronic Filing System (e-Postcard) User Guide while registering and filing.

For filing system and website issues, see How to File: Frequently Asked Questions. If site issues are unresolved, call TE/GE Customer Accounts Services at 877-829-5500. A representative will file your Form 990-N information.

Organizations should continue efforts to file, even if late.

Prior to filing your form, please review the following information:
Who must file

Most small tax-exempt organizations whose annual gross receipts are normally $50,000 or less can satisfy their annual reporting requirement by electronically submitting Form 990-N if they choose not to file Form 990 or Form 990-EZ instead.

Exceptions to this requirement include:

Organizations that are included in a group return,

Churches, their integrated auxiliaries, and conventions or associations of churches, and

Organizations required to file a different return

Form 990-N filing due date

Form 990-N is due every year by the 15th day of the 5th month after the close of your tax year. You cannot file the e-Postcard until after your tax year ends.

Example: If your tax year ended on December 31, the e-Postcard is due May 15 of the following year. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date is the next business day.

If your 990-N is late, the IRS will send a reminder notice to the last address we received.

While there is no penalty assessment for filing Form 990-N late, organizations that fail to file required Forms 990, 990-EZ or 990-N for three consecutive years will automatically lose their tax-exempt status. Revocation of the organization’s tax-exempt status will happen on the filing due date of the third consecutively-missed year. Watch this IRS YouTube presentation for more information.
Information you will need when filing Form 990-N

Form 990-N is easy to complete. You’ll need only eight items of basic information about your organization.

Stas Karpenko- UfaBible Ministries- Russia

UfaBible Ministries–Spanning continents for Christ


In the past months we have had several people profess faith in Christ at Ufa Bible but it
seems that 5 or 6 of them are rather shaky in their faith, wavering between Christ and
this world. As always in this culture, friends and family are playing big role in this.
Please pray for them to become firmly grounded in Christ and for wisdom for church in
following up with them, encouraging them in the right way.
It was a sick month! Both of our kids were sick with bronchitis which required hospital
visits. In the case with Tim we stayed in hospital overnight and with Christina we left
the same day. Hospitals in Russia sometimes are eerie places, under-equipped with no
control on what doctors do to you. They are notorious for being places with high
corruption. Although virtually everyone has healthcare insurance for a better care
doctors expect a little extra. Sometimes folks become doctors here without proper
education and training. Both Tim and Christina are well now. Tim is home schooled and
loves to learn new things.
Lord continues to bless our men’s club. We have good attendance and every meeting
makes deep impressions on guys. Once or twice we had not quite sober attendees but
they were well behaving so we let them to remain with us. Please continue to pray
about our men’s club for new men to come and for existing to grow.
A few months ago we asked you to lift in prayer our brother Ruslan for his desire to
gather former drug addicts into a group and try to make it regular. As it is always the
case with fresh ministers Ruslan have had his back and forth moments, trying to discern
God’s will. Finally this desire started to take a form of a regular meetings. Another
brother from our church – Maxim, is helping with this group as well. Please pray for
regularity of these meetings with such specific people’s group as former drug addicts.
Many of them were freed from the bondage but discontinued to follow the Lord.
I am leaving for Athens, Greece on Friday. Thank you for praying about funds to cover
this trip. Our Lord continues to amaze and has proved to be ultimate provider and all
necessary funds for the trip came in. Please pray for travel mercies as well as for Spirit
of the Lord be at work during the conference. Pray that the Lord would continue to
mold and sharpen our vision and that we would be a soft clay in His hands.
Let’s write another chapter,
Stas Karpenko

Chris & Larena Johnston – TMCI Missionaries to Galway, Ireland

Hope Ireland Missions-

Greetings loved ones! Coming to you once again with

another update from Galway! This month we’ve been working and

planning and prepping for plans God has put on our hearts, and

we’ve also seen the Lord move on the hearts of His people!

In the beginning of February, Chris spoke about

restoration at Galway Christian Fellowship. He has started

preaching every month, sometimes twice a month. He spoke on

how the love of Christ covers all of our shortcomings. It was a

powerful message and at the end, he had an altar call. 2

Individuals gave their hearts to Jesus for the first time, and

numerous others re-dedicated their lives to Jesus! It was beautiful.

On another note, we are thrilled to announce that as of

right now, every single one of our youth have a relationship with

Jesus! This has been 2 years in the making, and we’ve prayed, and

given opportunity after opportunity for those that we knew did

not have a relationship, to finally take that step! We are delighted

in this wonderful news!! However, we don’t want to stay there!

Now, our prayer is how do we reach more youth for Jesus? Please

stand in prayer with us as we pray in more youth, come up with

ideas to implement how to reach them, and then minister to them

with the love of Christ.

As we mentioned in last month’s newsletter, we have our

lovely Jordyn Ferraro who is currently raising support to come

and be a part of this work on a full time basis. With Jordyn’s help,

we will be brainstorming about future plans, and how to connect

with more youth outside the church. She will also be instrumental

in helping us develop and execute our hopes for our new college

ministry coming this Spring. We hope to have a service once a

month for all of our current college aged young adults to invite

their friends. The service would have worship, fellowship and

dynamic teachings. We cannot wait for Jordy to be here with us.

Please keep her in your prayers, that the Lord will provide for her

to do this work!

We are kicking off our college aged ministry by taking

about 12 of our young adults to Dublin on the weekend of March

10th & 11th to St. Mark’s Church. They are putting on a college

conference to inspire, build into and empower these individuals to

be lights to their universities. We will stay overnight in a Hostel

together, and go to the 2 day conference. We know the Lord has

great plans in store for these young adults! We see so much fruit

from them already, we can’t wait to watch it all unfold as time goes


We were also able to have a wonderful guest speaker

who came from Dublin to share with the youth. His name is

Jordan, and he was a youth that we met over 3 years ago at PULSE

youth camp. He is so on fire for Jesus, and is now a youth leader

at his home church. We invited him out to speak and he did a

wonderful job of telling the youth about God’s great love for them.

It’s so refreshing coming from someone close to their age, and also

someone who they know as a friend. It was a real joy to have him

with us!

Chris continues to study and has had real amazing

breakthroughs in planning for new types of services to hold at

TORCH to reach new levels of relationships with one another,

with the youth and leaders, and even with their daily walk with

God. We are excited to start trying some of these new service

types, and see how they develop our youth even further. We also

hope to have some nights where the youth are able to invite their

unsaved friends.

Lastly, wanted to share a little bit about a woman who

walked into GCF one night at prayer. Her name is Brenda. She

walked into the church and said it was her last hope. She was

contemplating taking her life that night. She was walking her dog,

and felt lead to come to the church. It was during a week of prayer,

so it was a wonder that we were even in the church that night. She

walked in and received prayer, and even asked Jesus into her

heart! It was an amazing moment, and we were just praying that

the Lord would use us to lead others to Himself…and He answered

so quickly! That night, everything changed for Brenda! Praise


Thank you for praying for these opportunities. We feel

your prayers ALL the time, and we KNOW that God is opening

doors here for these things to happen! Thank you for helping us

do this work by praying, supporting and sending us! We could

not do this work without those who feel lead to give and partner

with this work! We did reach our goal for our 2017 budget,

however if you can pray as we then lost a couple of donors at the

start of the year. We didn’t calculate that into our budget, but we

know that God provides and He puts us on the hearts of others,

and we know He hears your prayers and answers! Thank you for

praying for us, for this work and for this little baby who is growing

as well! As of today, I am almost 5 months pregnant!! This little

miracle baby is a gift, brought about by prayer and love, and all

of your praying has made this journey so much more wonderful!

Thank you!! By next month, I hope to have news if we are having

a little boy or girl! We love you all with all our hearts! ~Larena

Special Request from Rick, Maricruz and Danny Szymanski in Mexico

Dear Friends,

We are very excited to announce that our F.M. Radio Station has now been on the air for 5 days. What a tremendous amount of effort it takes to get a radio station set up and operating. We have been playing worship music 24 hours a day. I decided to stay silent about who is running the station for a week or so. People don’t even know the name of the radio station yet. It is called Radio Avivamento or Revival Radio in English.

We are praying for the Lord to send someone to help with the programing. Setting up all the music to broadcast is a major job. It is so amazing to see how the Lord brought this Radio Station into being. We are looking forward to sharing the fruit that this radio ministry produces. We were surprised to learn our radio station reaches all of Cancun and the hotel zone. The radio is also broadcasted on the internet and several F.M. stations in Latin America Countries.

Maricruz was having a series of dreams about a family in Mexico City. Afters week of having these dreams she told me she was going to Mexico City to share the Gospel with this family. In just a short time the Lord provided the money for Maricruz’s trip to Mexico City. When Maricruz returned from her trip she told me how the entire family received Jesus. The Mother and all 6 adult children. Sometimes God has to haunt our dreams to get us to do something for Him. It’s much easier to just say yes Lord I will do that for You. Like starting a Radio Station for God when you know nothing about radio stations and don’t have a dollar to do so.

Our son Danny will be turning 16 on the 16th of March. I would like to ask if you would pray a special blessing for his birthday. Being a missionary kid is not a easy life to live. I know he would appreciate the love and support of those at home.

In a recent ministry report I shared my desire to get sandals for 60 barefoot Mayan children. We received donations to buy 18 pairs of sandals. We would like to say thank you to those who sent in the donations. We will be going to Santa Cruz this week to bless 18 of the children with their first pair of sandals. Yes this will be their first pair of shoes ever. If your interested you can still donate a pair of sandals for $ 4.00

If you would like to buy a pair of sandals for a Mayan child you can use PayPal to rickymaricruz@aim.com or send a check to:
Central Willamette Credit Union
P.O. Box D
Albany, OR 97321   

Please make the check payable to Rick Szymanski and write 388860 in the memo Box

I would like to say thank you on behalf of the Mayan Children.

God Bless You

Rick, Maricruz and Danny Szymanski

Rev. Lynne and Glenn Schweitzer, TMCI Missionaries to Nicaragua

There are several areas that we are praying about and need financial help:


We would like to be able to underwrite the pastors who work at Quinta Esperanza-Iglesia Nuevo Amanecer.  They have had to take full-time jobs in Managua to survive. Consequently, they are not able to be with us except on Sunday. Elvis, our children’s pastor, was being paid from CM.  Now, he is married but dependent on our ministry for a living. Neither he nor his wife can work outside the ministry and she is having complications in her pregnancy.


We are hoping that you might put out the word that we also need funds to purchase a toilet, sink and materials for the men’s bathroom and help to purchase a large circuit breaker box, breakers and heavy-duty wiring since we had a melt-down due to the circuit being overloaded.  We have no sound for church or lights.  Nor do we have electricity in our office and need to be able to hook up our computer and attend to ministry items.


If you know of a couple who would like to come as missionaries to live here at Quinta Esperanza please let us know. They would have to have their own underwriting.  Sooner or later we will be moving back and need to have qualified people in place to carry on.  Travelling to Nicaragua once or twice a year will be a lot easier on us now that we are older.


Blessings to all at TMCI.

Bishop Coulter: The war goes on… Pray for our nation!

The war for the soul of this nation continues. The church must not sleep. Many prayed fervently for our nation before the election. We must maintain that fervor. Extreme elements are trying to steal the progress we have made as a nation.

My prayer today for this nation is Ps 59:1-3 Deliver me (our nation) from my (its) enemies, O my God; Defend me (our nation) from those who rise up against me (it). 2 Deliver me (our nation) from the workers of iniquity, and save me (our nation) from bloodthirsty men. 3 For look, they lie in wait for my (our nation) life; The mighty gather against me (Our nation), NKJV

Folks, the corruption in high places is rampant. Our new president promises to drain the swamp; but the resistance from the firmly placed establishment is fierce. The only way we will have justice is for God’s people to pray fervently for our nation and speak out against the evil they see.

So, let us pray that Congress will see the evil and corruption around them and repent and do something about it. Let’s pray that our congress will put the people’s interest ahead of their own. Without our prayers and God’s help, the administration cannot prevail in its reforms. Let us pray that justice will be done and that this country will once again honor God and the rule of law.

Remember James 5:16 The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. (NKJV)

We must not stop praying for our nation. It is the prayers of the saints that will win the day.

Praying fervently,
Bishop Bob Coulter

Damaris Velasco, TMCI Missionary to El Salvador

Number ministered to:  250.

Number saved:  12.

We were in a town called Santa Catarina Masahuat in Sonsonate for a week and we had a VBS and we went sharing the gospel door to door.


I praise the Lord because He answered with a yes and I got the religious VISA for the training Dear Lyman:

I wanted to let you know that God answered the prayer about the USA VISA with a yes and I am very thankful because going to a training to Oasis ministry have been always a desire in my heart and it was also a desire of my dad, and that shows how God answers prayers even after we pass away. He is faithful! My parents accepted the Lord through that ministry at Miami and I will be always thankful that God used them and allowed me to born and grow in a Christian home and get to accepted the Lord being a 6 years old little girl.

Prayer Requests:

Please pray for God´s provision for my airplane ticket and traveling insurance while I go for 4 months to Miami for a ministerial training from March 1st to June 30th.

I will need to paid for my ticket and insurance before February 15th. It will cost $700.00 and I also need to buy a traveling insurance because I will expend 4 months there, and the cheapest cost of that is: $500.

Now that I have the VISA, I just need to buy the airplane ticket asap. I trust that God is the provider though and I ask you to please help me pray.
