“By Faith Abraham...Obeyed and Went”

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. And by faith even Sarah, who was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise. And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore” (Hebrews 11:8-12)

God’s Lesson on Faith for Us

Soo and I are reading the book of Hebrews these days and His words has taught us God’s will would be done in our lives if and only if we consider God as our faithful Father. We ought to leave the time when Taiwanese friends become saved to God’s care. It’s because our impatient desire of seeing our prayer gets answered quickly inhibits us from unwaveringly believing in God’s promises. God has been gracious that we’ve met some new friends at the swimming pool and table tennis place. We’ve been focusing on nurturing our relationship with them by praying for their salvation and consistently contacting them to show our care. Yet we covet your praying for us that we don’t become weary in believing in God’s time they too will accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and grow as Jesus’ disciples in Taiwan. God’s love for these spiritually lost Taiwanese is real but what we face each day in reality is no perspective changes on their worldly views. So it is crucial to live our lives by faith. Without the faith believing they too can accept the grace of God’s salvation someday, our lives would easily get scorned by the Satan. So having read Hebrews, we questioned “could it be that disciples making process starts from keep-believing people we care will eventually all become saved by God’s grace according to His will. We continue doing what God asks us to do each day and make sure we don’t doubt about their potential of changing their perspectives and coming to faith. With this in mind, we keep going with joy as we invite community friends and prepare “the Table of the Lord”. Last week at a meal at our home I invited Mei-Yu, a lady who suffered paralyzed legs, to our small group every Thursday; then she said she would like to invite her other friends in Yilan County’s Handicap Friends Association to hear the Gospel when we present the “Table of the Lord” at this year’s Christmas. We were thrilled and thought, “Could it be God leading us to plant a church for handicap friends in Yilan later?”:)

Disciples-Making at Qidu Church Continues

Fall Session of the “Two-Wings” Disciples-
making class at Qidu Church has been going well with two other ladies at the church joining the small group training. They are the new believers and already say they’ve learned what’s called “Spreading Gospel” in the evangelistic small group. Please pray for Qidu’s working class people’s salvation as those who have shown little interest in getting to know the church through its past one year’s the community outreach efforts are now disappeared. But “taking up the shield of faith”(Eph.6:16), at Qidu Church, we will keep witnessing the Gospel with joy.
