We praise the Lord for His continued blessings in our lives and ministry. We count it an honor and joy to be able to serve the “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS” in China.
2nd Year Anniversary: Dalian Grace Baptist Church celebrated its second year anniversary from the official start of the church. The Lord blessed and we had many visitors and a wonderful time in the Lord. I was able to preach a simple gospel message and we are praying for fruit in the lives of those who heard it.
Reaching All Ages: I had the opportunity to baptize an older lady who has been coming to our church and learning about the gospel. She finally believed and was baptized this past month. Praise the Lord.
Fall Festival: We hosted a fall festival again this year and it was probably our largest attended activity. It was a joy to see whole families come and enjoy the games and activities that we had planned. Every child received a tract in their treat bag and everyone was invited to come back and join us on Sunday for our kids’ club and morning service.
Support and Offerings: Praise the Lord we have received some new support and other opportunities that have help financially. Also, we received part of what was needed to help purchase the Chinese Bibles.
Persecution: China is a land of great blessing and great persecution. We recently decided to change some of the way we did things to adjust for the growing tension towards local churches in China. In the past, our ministry has had two visits from the police, but thankfully we haven’t had any in the past two years in our current location. With that being said, we have heard of at least three other churches or ministries in the city who have had problems within the past month or so, as well as, others in different parts of China. Please continue to pray for our ability and boldness to move the gospel forward in China.
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.
