The weather is beautiful today as I write this letter. We are in the middle of “summer break” which only last about six weeks in China. Another month has gone by and God continues to bless the ministry here. Praise His holy name!
Salvation: Last month we reported about how our daughter came to faith in Jesus. The Lord has used her testimony to challenge others in the church about their own situations. The following Sunday the wife of the couple of whom I have done weekly marriage counseling with also came to faith in Jesus. Praise the Lord! We have mentioned them in earlier prayer letters and the Tuesday before she trusted in Jesus we were able to answer many question. You could see she was under conviction. Finally, the following Sunday during one of the services, she trusted in Jesus. Her husband and the church are filled with joy. Thank you for your prayers and praying for them. Please continue to pray, there are more just like her who have attended the church and are hearing the gospel each week but have yet make a decision to put their faith in Jesus.
Planning: We are planning a baptism service in two weeks. We have a handful or so that are planning on getting baptized. We will baptize publicly in the ocean, Lord willing. Also, we are working on our calendar for outreach events for the rest of year. School starts back at the end of this month / the beginning of next, so please pray that we can reach more families for Christ. Finally, next month we will need to renew our visas. We have an opportunities to get a very suitable visa, Lord willing, if everything works out, so please be in prayer with us about that.
Group: Next week, we will be hosting my parents and a group from their church. This is the church that I grew up in and their influence is one of the reason I am in missions today. Please pray for their trip.
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 team, Project China.
