Happy summer and PRAISES for another successful 12 weeks of “Faith or Fiction” classes! There were 324 that participated – that’s 324 lives that have been changed and transformed into the image of Christ!
In this season of many closed doors, the Lord has taught us to wait and pray. Despite the pain, difficulties, and disappointments of these last months, God has been and still is at work in China bringing healing, restoring relationships, transforming lives, and growing ministry partnerships for His kingdom and His glory.
As we look back, we could have easily been discouraged that we were not able to do ministry in person as we had imagined with our Chinese ministry team (they have named themselves In His Image). Now we see how the Lord has been preparing the way and orchestrating His purposes all along. We’d like to introduce you to this hard working, committed team of Chinese leaders:
- Jennifer & Paul – Team Leaders, Business Focus
- Ruth & Oscar – Deaf/Blind Focus
- Martha & Jason – Church/Underground Focus
- Anna & Waylon – Education/Teaching Focus
- Marie & Jason – Medical/Health Focus
- Rose & Craig – Neighborhood Focus
- Lisa & Eric – Business Focus
Thanks to the Lord, our team has been able to take the Gospel to thousands who have never heard it before and we know how important it is to have people upholding those efforts in prayer. We hope when you receive our newsletters that you don’t just view it as information, but that you might be actively involved with seeing God’s kingdom expand in China through your prayers and support participation as the Lord leads “The man who mobilizes the Christian church to pray will make the greatest contribution to world evangelization in history.” Quote from Andrew Murray
“Finally, dear brothers, as I come to the end of this letter, I ask you to pray for (our team)us. Pray first that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and triumph wherever it goes, winning converts everywhere as it did when it came to you.” (2 Thessalonians 3:1)
Thank you so much for all your prayers, encouragement and support! Please let us know how we can be praying for you.
