Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

An Unfinished Story with a New Chapter

Mid-term elections were held in the US in November and Taiwan also held major elections a few weeks later. Though we don’t often follow Taiwan’s local politics closely, this time we had reason to.

We have many close friends in Taiwan, but a very special one is Melinda. We’ve shared a bit of Melinda’s story before: how she had a dream of singing a song in English, only to discover the next day when she hummed the tune of the unknown song for Tim, that it was the famous hymn “Amazing Grace”.
Though Melinda is not yet a Christ-follower, she is very supportive of Amazing Grace Church, even announcing once to several thousand people while emceeing a large community event several years ago that she would donate her emcee fee to the church.

Melinda was just elected to the position of mayor of our township. We believe she’ll do a good job. We believe she is a woman of integrity who genuinely cares for the community. We also believe that God is at work in Melinda.
Please pray that God would give Melinda wisdom as she leads. Pray for God’s blessing over her, and most importantly, pray that Melinda will come to know personally God’s Amazing Grace!

We are so thankful to the many churches and individuals who have hosted us in recent weeks. We are thankful for each of you who partners with us through giving and praying. Your partnership makes a difference!

We will be heading to New York next week to spend a couple weeks in the Spanish Eastern District. Please join us in praying for God's powerful work in His churches.

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

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

Please be in prayer for Amazing Grace Church’s Christmas outreach event on 12/15. Pray for many to attend from the community and respond to the message of hope.

Pray for us during this home assignment year. Pray that God will use us in each of the churches where we are sharing. Pray too that we will continue to be light for Him in our neighborhood in Rochester, Minnesota and with unsaved family members.

Continue to pray for Amos Li, the Taiwan C&MA Bible College study who is serving at Amazing Grace Church. Pray that Amos will have strength to complete his studies well, and that he will have wisdom in leading the church. We anticipate Amos becoming the full-time pastor of Amazing Grace Church after his graduation in June 2019.

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