Dear Pastors, Partners & Praying Friends:
Furlough is going great. We are getting rest, being encouraged, growing, learning, and busy about the Lord’s work. We can say with the Psalmist, “I have set the Lord always before me: Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: My flesh also shall rest in hope.” (Psalm 16:8–9)
Prayer & Praise Requests: Please pray or rejoice with us over the following:
- Our needed increase in support. We need about 30% more to reach our new target amount before we return next year, Lord willing. Praise the Lord for one new church that has already voted to partner with us and for the Lord providing our needs in a strong way.
- As a part of the North Korean Initiative, we were able to purchase about 120 SD cards that were loaded by a friend with Korean Christian material and sent over the Chinese and North Korean bordered to be distributed among the North Koreans. Praise the Lord they made it into the country. Pray they will be used to plant seeds of the gospel in the hearts of the people and for souls to be saved.
- Pray for safety and blessings as we travel to report about what God has done in China and raise up new laborers for the great harvest field of China and the world. In our travels, we have already come in contact with families and young people who are interested in getting involved in missions.
- Pray as we reach out to the Chinese community we meet as we travel.
Upcoming Event: We will be participating and speaking at the Our Generation Summit in Mt. Sterling, Ohio this coming December 28-29, 2018. This conference is a gathering of Christians endeavoring to further the Gospel of Christ. This conference is open to individuals, couples, families, and church groups. If you are interested in missions, I hope that you will plan to attend. For more information contact us or visit: www.ogsummit.com.
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 “China Ministry” team. We are especially fond of you! Let us continue pressing forward so that we can know Jesus and make Him known!
In His Joyful Service,
