Dear Pastors, Partners, & Praying Friends,
God is doing a work! October was a month full of many blessings as the Lord is building His church. We are excited to be apart of what the Lord is doing and experience it first hand as we continue in our language studies. Let me report to you three areas of how the Lord is working:
First, my co-laborer has been training several men and this past month the first one was ordained into the Gospel ministry. I was honored to give a challenge at his ordination. It is exciting to see how the Lord is going to use him and his family as they take the next steps in ministry.
Second, we are able to build more relationships and share the Gospel. This past month as we were at the police station trying to obtain some paperwork that we needed, I was able to talk again with a friend, who also is a police officer, and he showed interested in receiving a Bible. Pray for this man’s salvation.
Also, we have been able to meet with others and share the Gospel with them as we are constantly meeting new people. Pray for souls to be saved!
Third, we assisted a new church plant here in the city. Another man that my co-laborer has also been training for several years was ready to establish a new church. It was a great learning process for us as we learned how to look for and find a location, organize and hold outreach events, plan and setup everything for the beginning of the new church plant. It is exciting to see a local church planting another local church.
Other points of prayer and praise for this month are:
- Language – We are in our fourteen month of language study and there is still much to learn. Pray for the Lord to bless our efforts as we continue along.
- China Baby – The baby is due on February 3rd. We will be traveling to another city and must stay there for about a month’s time.
- Laborers – Pray for 5 men to surrender their lives to give China the Gospel.
Thank you for being a part of our team, Project China, with your prayers and financial support!
