The Lord continues to pour His blessings out on our lives daily. We are humbled that the Lord not only would save us but use our lives to bring Him glory by serving in China. It is exciting to serve the Lord of lords and the King of kings!
The last month and a half has been busy with visitors: my in-laws, my parents, and a supporting church from South Carolina. We had a great time with each group and were glad that our children were able to spend time with their grandparents. Also, we were excited to share our ministry and vision for China with all those who visited. If you are interested in bringing a group to China, contact me for more details!
The Sunday school class that I am teaching is going good. I am thankful for the opportunity to teach each week. It has really helped me in my language abilities. Also, I recently was approached by a couple living in our complex about studying the Bible, thus I was invited to their home to study the Bible. There were several people there and I am excited about continuing to study the Bible with them and to see what the Lord brings of this situation.
As we announced last month, we are taking a short furlough from December 2012 through February 2013. We have filled many of our dates already, but still have a few spots available. If you are interested in having us in during this time, please send me an email (this is the best way to schedule a meeting with our time zone being 12 hours ahead of EST). Lord willingly, we will be returning to China in March of 2013 to start a new church plant in a new city.
It is exciting to see the churches grow and be apart of the the ministry under the Taube family. The Lord is using them greatly to do a mighty work here in China. Though they are here and our family as well, there is still a great need because the work is great but the laborers are few. Pray that God would raise up more labors for the harvest fields of China. Pastor, partner, praying friend will you consider your life and take a step of faith to come to China to preach the Gospel, plant churches and train men. Young men, will you give the best years of your life to God, for His service, reserved for the Master’s use. Will you? If not you, then who?
Thank you for being a part of our team, Project China, with your prayers and financial support!
