Happy Chinese New Year! We are thankful the Lord gave us another year to serve Him in China. We are happy to be spending this Chinese New year with Chinese friends who are like family to us now.
Family Update: Praise the Lord, again, for the healthy birth of our twins and my wife’s safety in the delivery. The babies are healthy and growing and my wife is slowly recovering and adjusting to being a family of seven! Praise the Lord. Our other girls are also doing well and have been great in being flexible and adjusting to our new way of life. Also, we are so thankful for the team we have here who has been a huge help and blessing to us over the past month.
Chinese New Year Outreach Update: Chinese New Year is in February this year. Every year before the holiday and before everyone returns to their hometowns we try to host a special service at the church where we make Chinese dumplings. This is a traditional thing to do at this time of year. It has been a fun activity every year, but this year was our biggest turn out with over 70 people attending our activities on Sunday. There were several first-time visitors and many unbelievers who heard a gospel message about “What makes Jesus different?”. Pray for their salvation.
Pray For Boldness: Many, if not all, of our church members, will be spending time with their families over the coming holidays. Please pray that they will have the boldness to preach the gospel to their unbelieving family members and friends. Also, our American teammates will be spending the holidays with different Chinese families (some are in the villages), so pray that they will be a bold witness as well.
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. We are especially fond of you! Let us continue pressing forward so that we can know Jesus and make Him known!
