Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

Transformed
From darkness to light . . . prison to freedom . . . from anger and fighting to radiating God’s peace.

Our Taiwan Alliance Bible College intern, Li WenJun began his weekend ministries at Amazing Grace Church two weeks ago. This past Sunday, he shared his testimony.

Growing up in a broken and dysfunctional home, Li WenJun had anger issues that got him into fights and trouble as a youth. He spiraled further down into drug use and eventually wound up in prison, where he continued fighting and sinking deeper into the hopelessness around him.

But while in prison, Li WenJun met Jesus. As I looked at this young man before me, I found it hard to imagine that he could really have been the person he was describing.

Our God truly transforms lives!

After Sunday’s service, Amazing Grace Church member, JinHou told me that he had shared many of the very same experiences our intern had described. JinHou is another life now redeemed and transformed. The only remaining visible evidence of that old life is the gang tattoos still left on his body.

Coming Up:
November 9 – 16: A team from the San Jose Christian Alliance Church will be bringing special teaching to encourage our church family, as well as outreach in our community. Please pray for them, that God would use them in His work of transforming lives.

Thank you for praying and giving to support us. May God continue to transform the hearts and lives of working class Taiwanese, for His glory!

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