Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,
Thank you all for continuing to pray with us and for us as we wait for the Lord to open the door for us to leave to the field. The Lord has blessed us with a couple of new supporting churches over the last month, which inches us closer to full support. Please continue to pray that the remainder of our support would come in quickly.
I mentioned in our last prayer letter that I have been given an opportunity to teach a ten-week online course to pastors in China that began last month. So far, we are halfway through a study of Old Testament pictures of Christ. The whole of the Bible truly is about Jesus, just as He taught on the road to Emmaus!
We are “sitting on ready” and can’t wait to get to Taiwan to work serve under and learn from the Tolson family as they establish Victory Baptist Church in New Taipei City. As of the writing of this letter, Taiwan is still not permitting Mainland Chinese to enter. We trust that, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.” Pray that Taiwanese government officials would quickly end the temporary travel restrictions against Chinese nationals so that we can apply for visas and leave.
Setup Fund: This are a few of our remaining moving expenses for us to leave for the field and get settled in:
Airfare, Luggage, and Visas: $2000 (was $6000)
Rent for a Year: $2000 (was $10,000)
Vehicle: $4000 (was $15,000)
Housing and Furniture: $4000 (was $10,000)
Would you consider a one-time love offering of any amount ($100, $250, $500, $1000, $5000 etc.) to reach these needs?
- Pray that I would be an encourgement to the pastors in Mainland China as I teach them each week.
- Pray that China would open its borders soon.
- Pray that Taiwan would lift travel restrictions against Mainland Chinese.
- Pray that the Lord would raise up more missionaries to preach the gospel and plant churches in China.
