The Chinese New Year season has begun! Many people are traveling back to their hometowns to spend the holiday with their families. Many people will be out of work and school for three to four weeks. Please pray for travel safety and for boldness to share the Good News.
Sunday morning, I prayed for the opportunity to share the Good News with someone at the meeting. Because of the time of year, there are not often visitors who are not already friends. Sure enough, our Father answered! I was able to share the Good News with a man who had attended assembly meetings as a boy. He said he was not ready to choose our Friend, but please pray that his wife and others would be a good example and that he would choose!
We are preparing to welcome a group of visiting friends this week. We are looking forward to the opportunity to get to know them and travel with them to the Northeast! Please pray for a spiritually rich time and for safety as we participate in the busiest travel time on the planet!
As we travel to the Northeast, we are planning to visit J___ City, where the team first worked. We are so excited to see this part of the country and to be able to spend some time with Dr. Y. Dr. Y is also one of the reasons our family and many others have come to China. He is faithfully serving our Father there in a needy place. Our Father is continuing to bless this great man and his family.
The last three weeks, I’ve shared a series of messages with the people here. The first was, “Do You Sound Like a Christian?” The second was, “Do You Look Like a Christian?” The third was, “Do You Think Like a Christian?” which focused on our most important spiritual battlefield—our minds. As you read this, I encourage you to consider these questions yourself. Also, please pray that we and those we influence would sound, look, and think in a way that would bring glory to our Father, so that more people can know how great He is (Matthew 5:16)!
We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support! Both my wife and I have already seen improvement in our health this last month. It is exciting and comforting to know that the One Who has all the power, wisdom, and knowledge is also the One Who loves us and is taking care of us!
That all the earth may know,
