01/05 Lu Gang Baptist Church (Update)

2014-01-08

I had a great time witnessing the acceptance of a new missionary in the church.  He and his wife have been participating in the Directions ministry and are on board with it.  His father, who is also a Pastor, was very proud to see his son following in his footsteps.

I also had the opportunity to meet national Pastors attending the meeting.

Pray for him and his wife as they lead this church in the future.  Pray for the church members to be used of God in their community.  Pray for their participation in the mentoring process.

01/04 Lu Gang Church (New Missionary)

Sunday I will be present as the church formally invites a new Missionary to come and live in their church.  He and his wife will live at the church.  He and his wife have been participating in the Saturday night small group since its beginning.

Pray for them as they take on the responsibility of leading the church. 

Also, This will be a great opportunity to network with other Baptist Pastors.

Pray for connection for future outreaches.

Today Marc, Candy and I went to visit a fellow co-worker (Carolina) in the hospital today.

She was in a bike accident New Years Eve and today is having surgery on her wrist.

Carolina was part of the Summer camp several years ago and is now living in Taiwan preparing to ministry to the people of Taiwan.  She is also helping Glennda and I on Sunday night in the Sunday Night Outreach at NUTC.

As usual, God gave us a new connection.  We were introduced a couple (Leo and Phoebe) who have returned from the states and are here as missionaries to restaurant employees.

Pray for her quick recovery.  Pray for her to see God working in the circumstances of this time.  Pray for our connection with this new missionary couple.

This Saturday our family will go to a wedding in Wu Feng.  Elder Chen’s son is getting married.  In addition to being at Elder Chen’s son’s marriage, this will be a great opportunity to connect with others from different area churches.
