One of the great joys of being on the mission field is to see God radically change people’s lives and see them changed forever. Glory to the God of our salvation!
Thank you for praying for boldness! The Lord granted your requests and gave us much boldness over the Chinese New Year holiday. Here are a few ways that the prayer was answered:
- Our American teammates were able to live with some Chinese families in the villages and did the best they could to share the gospel with others.
- One day we purposefully went out to a random village to share the gospel. Our two teams were both invited into houses and boldly preached the gospel.
- The assistant pastor, myself and others went visiting people’s homes to “pay a New Year call” and used this cultural visiting time to share the gospel inside of Chinese people’s homes. Jesus was made known.
- After one of our recent services, I asked those who wanted us to pray for their salvation to raise their hands. Two ladies did and after the service one lady placed her faith in Jesus. Praise God!
- The father of one of the young men training has been attending our church on and off for over a month. Before he was to return to his hometown upon the end of the holidays, I asked him to come to the church so I could explain the gospel face to face. During that meeting, He asked the Lord to save him.
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!
