Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


---“Preparing the Way for the Lord” is Our Ministry---

“The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way” – “a voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’” (Mark 1:1-3)

"One-Step Further in Relationship Building"

Every day we go out and meet people we already know and those we don’t know yet. Among the numerous people we meet in the community’s exercise and sports places, we always look for someone whom we can get to know one-step further. It’s got to be “one-step further” in the relationship building because we are “preparing the way for the Lord” so that someday they can find Jesus in their paths of life. Just as John, the Baptist, prepared the “paths for [Jesus]”, our ministry is to put efforts in finding and helping anyone whose life needs Jesus, the Lord, for salvation. When we pray for multiple strangers we happened to meet in the community, God blesses us in a way we can become acquaintances. Then with more prayers and intentions, we seek to get “one-step further” in relationship by some specific ways we can minister to them. Inviting them to our “Table of the Lord” is a sure way to minister to them.
Though we sometimes grow weary, our motivation is rooted in identifying ourselves as the ones who “prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for [Jesus]” in Yilan County. So we persevere saying, “Unless we go out keep meeting them every day, what chance do people in our area have, even to hear of the name of Jesus? Thank you for sending us to be here.

"Wen-Sheng and Shu-Hui’s Family"

We met Wen-Sheng and Shu-Hui’s family in Jiaoxi Town where we live so we’ve been inviting them to our “Table of the Lord”. During the Chinese New Year holidays, our ministry’s prayer partner team in Korea came to Yilan and we asked them to go with us to Wen-Sheng’s home and two other acquaintances homes on Chinese New Year’s Day to make some Korean food for them and also sing praise songs to proclaim real peace in Jesus and bless the families. They all seemed very delighted and encouraged by what we did for them. Now Wen-Sheng’s family come to our Saturday’s small group at our home and they are open to hear more about Jesus. All the glory to Jesus only! Jesus found them through us when we obeyed Him and “prepare the way for the Lord.” We’re so happy to see Jesus is in touch with Wen-Sheng and Shu-Hui’s family now. Let us bring all the glory to God.

"Shi Ying-Zhi’s Baptism"

We met Shi Ying-Zhi through our friend, Mei-Yu. She watched Jesus movie at our home one day. Soon she wanted to believe in Jesus and get rid of her idol god. After we removed her idol god from her house, she asked to be baptized. Soon she was baptized and became the first member of our Yilan Gospel Center. She diligently prays that her daughter’s couple also come to faith in Jesus. We praise God for Ying-Zhi who joins us for Sunday Worship Service at our home. There are also five adults and two children in our Saturday’s small group. Thanks to all of you for praying on behalf of our church planting.

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

Please pray for God's anointing for our Saturday Small Group that Gospel "seeds" being planted in people's hearts will grow and lead them to repentance and the Salvation offered through Jesus' cross.

Please also pray that God lead us to more people from two local universities and Yilan Table Tennis League group. We are aiming to have another small group to plant Gospel "seeds" in Yilan City.
