Over the years, I have had a relationship with Mr. and Mrs Chao and their church. Many years ago, there was an introduction made church wide, but it fizzled out. From this initial start, the Yuan Lin Small group started their own study. Originally, it was led by Jerald Zhu, who passed away several years ago. This group also studied through Discipleship II. Since this time, they have dissolved their small group to lead other small groups in their community. They continue to promote Directions.
Well history is repeating itself again. Today. I met with this couple and we have formulated a plan to reach out to their church body again. Starting in March, we will provide a Directions time, being sensitive to church members needs. We all know, mentoring needs to be done. It is finding the correct method to encourage is key.
So, pray with us for relationships to be established that are conducive to spiritual growth. Pray for us, as we formulate a healthy plan, to build up the believers in their church.
