Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Tim and Penny Iverson - Taiwan

湧恩堂 (Tainan Abundant Grace Church Plant)
We were thrilled when our neighbor, Amy joined the church plant worship services last January and began to quickly become a key member of our fellowship. But then Amy moved away, and we didn’t expect to see her anymore. Though her new rental was just a short distance from us, with a toddler and expecting baby #2, we knew getting to church would be a challenge. Our hope was that she would find a nearby church to attend.

But shortly after her move, in May, a COVID surge hit Taiwan and in-person church services came to a stop. Amy became our most consistent attendee for weekly online services! She has maintained her connection with our church family and the friendships have grown stronger!
COVID restrictions will loosen up for us next week in Taiwan, and we will begin in person services again on August 1. It may prove challenging for Amy to come, especially as her due date approaches. But we believe God has led Amy to be part of THIS family of local believers and we are thankful for that!

And the exciting news is that construction on Amy’s future home RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET from the church has begun – Amy will eventually be our neighbor again!

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. “
1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV

Thank you all for partnering with us through prayer and giving! We are so grateful for you!
Tim & Penny
