Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

Dear Praying Friends,
Thank you for praying for our Christmas events. Attendance was great at all events, and we know people heard the Gospel message. Please pray that we would see fruit as the Holy Spirit continues His work in hearts. Pray for more opportunities to “water” the seeds that were planted. We long to see HARVEST!

Recently, our church family agreed to invite Li WenJyun (Amos Li) to continue his internship at Amazing Grace Church into his 4th year of studies. Amos is praying about that decision, as there is an assumption that he would likely then remain in YuanChang as pastor after his 2019 graduation. Please continue to pray for God’s will and leading in this important decision.

After many years of watching Lina hesitantly respond to the Gospel, and then enter in “part-way” on the fringes of our fellowship; in 2017 we saw Lina begin to embrace her walk with Christ. She became a faithful part of our church, joyfully entering in to opportunities to serve. And just last Sunday she announced that she had finally talked to her husband and he agreed that she can be baptized!

We are planning an Easter baptism!
Pray for Lina’s growth in Christ and that her husband and two sons would attend her baptism, and themselves come to faith in Jesus.

Thankful to PARTNER with this Christ-Centered, Acts 1:8 Family,
Tim & Penny
