Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,
Jesus is worthy! We have been reminded of this glorious truth this week as we are getting to attend the missions conference of our home church, Vision Baptist Church. We as believers in Christ are blessed to both serve and proclaim the One who is worthy to receive all blessing and honor and glory. He is the reason we head to China. Jesus alone is worthy to be proclaimed among 1.4 billion people!
We are still “sitting on ready” to leave for the field. Please continue to pray with us in this. Both mainland China and Taiwan are still closed off to us as a family of mixed nationality. Please pray that both fields would open up quickly so that we can leave for the field soon and make Jesus known in the Chinese-speaking world!
I continue to be able to teach a ten-week online course to pastors in China on pictures of Christ in the Old Testament. With one week remaining as of the writing of this letter, please pray that I would finish strong and be an encouragement to them as they pastor their respective churches.
Myself and Ty Pepperdine, co-laborer for China, are planning to host a two-day conference about China and its need for preachers. For details, please visit www.visionforchina.org/underground.
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: $2000 (was $15,000)
Housing and Furniture: $2500 (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 for Underground Jiaohui, an upcoming China conference about Christianity in China, underground churches, and China’s need for more bold gospel preachers. More info at the above link!
