Merry Christmas! We are in a wonderful season of ministry here in China. The church is growing, we have two Chinese families training for full-time ministry, there are American interns and other missionaries who are training and preparing for language school and our family unit is growing with twins on the way! Praise God!
Third Year Anniversary: Last month, our church celebrated its third year anniversary. Also, one the same Sunday we had our thanksgiving service and meal. We are thankful for all the Lord has done and how He has blessed the ministry and church.
Christmas Outreaches: Christmas is a great time of the year to outreach into the community. This past weekend the church has its yearly ladies Christmas party that went great. Please pray for our other activities this month: members’ Christmas service; Sunday morning Christmas service with a special meal and kids’ program; a young peoples Christmas party. This Christmas, like every day of the year, we want the Chinese people to know that Jesus is the Son of God and came to save them from their sins.
The Next Generation: The family here for their six-month missionary internship are doing a great job. They came with a learning spirit and have been a huge help as they are getting involved as much as they can. At the beginning of this month, we received another family from our home church who are here to learn ministry and do language school for about two years. We have been helping them over that past couple weeks to get set up as they start their new lives as “on the field” missionaries.
Praise and Prayer Request: A man in 30’s trusted in Jesus after one of the Bible studies in the past month! He has been coming for a long time. Praise the Lord! Also, there are 3 dad’s who have been coming for a long time but have not believed in Jesus. They are opening up. Pray for their salvation and the salvation of their families. Their English names are Michael, Richard, and Frank. Another praise is that we had some families come back to the church from our family fall party.
Twins: My wife is 34 weeks now! So our due date is next month! Please keep her and our family in your prayers as we welcome these twins into the world!
Thank you! We know that we couldn’t do anything without the help of God’s people. Thank you for giving, praying and being a part of our team, Project China. We are especially fond of you! Let us continue pressing forward so that we can know Jesus and make Him known!
