Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

Dear Friends,
Rural Taiwan - - - most of the faces we see around us are elderly. After years of ancestor worship and upholding traditional customs and ceremonies, and added to that the fear of change and the fear of unknown consequences, it makes it very challenging to see elderly Taiwanese turn to faith in Christ.

That’s why we are especially excited about an upcoming baptism. On May 28th, Lwo MeiJen, who is in her 70’s, will take a public stand for Christ in baptism. Lwo Jye (older sister) as we call her decided to follow Christ recently. Her life has been a hard one, but she has found hope in Christ.

Please pray for Lwo Jye to know Jesus more and more, and grow in her new faith. Pray that she will be a light to those around her, especially her husband. Pray that she will not become discouraged when he treats her harshly for going to church.

Ben and Eiko are another reason to praise! They moved to our town a year or so ago to raise their own organic vegetables. Eiko loves Jesus, and ever since the weekend they moved to town and she spotted our church, she has been a blessing to us. Benjamin attends church regularly with her, but has not yet opened his heart to Christ. Pray for Ben to respond to God’s call.

Thank You for your support through the C&MA Great Commission Fund (GCF)!
Thank you for praying for us, for the Amazing Grace Church plant, and for the working class people in Taiwan who have yet to meet the God who loves them.

Glad to be part of this Christ-Centered, Acts 1:8 Family!
Tim & Penny

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

Thank you for faithfully upholding us in prayer. We NEED it!
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” 1 John 5:14 (NIV)

Pray for God’s provision for leadership of the church. We go on home assignment in 2018.

Pray for a short term team coming the last weekend in May, as well as the baptism service on the 28th (Lwo Jye’s younger sister is part of the short term team).

Pray for Ben to turn to Christ.

It is Taiwan tax season. Yes, besides US taxes, we also pay taxes in Taiwan and it can be a big expense. Your gifts to the Great Commission Fund help with these kinds of living expenses, as well as our ministries.

Pray for breakthrough in our community - that Christ will push back the darkness, and hearts will open to Him.

Please join us in asking God for MUCH fruit in Taiwan - fruit that will last!
