Dear brothers and sisters,
Peace to you in Christ!
There is a story of a minister in Beijing whose young daughter struggled with respiratory problems and often with asthma. One day she experienced difficulty breathing so severely that she stopped breathing and died. In his loss, the minister held his daughter and wept aloud, engulfed in misery. A few minutes later, she opened her eyes and came back to life miraculously. The daughter saw the tears on her father’s face and said, “Don’t cry, daddy, Jesus was right beside me just now.” When Jesus was on the earth, a synagogue leader, Jairus, came falling at Jesus’ feet asking him to heal his daughter. At that time someone coming from Jairus’ house said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.” (Luke 8:49) But when Jesus heard this, he said to Jairus, “Do not fear. Only believe, and she will be saved.” (Luke 8:50)
What are we afrWhat are we afraid of today? What, then, do we put our faith in? People fear death because death is like a dark, bottomless pit that devours. However, when Jesus came, he brought resurrection power and eternal life. This is exactly what we believe! We believe in the mighty power of the cross and salvation in Christ! Through the mercy of our heavenly Father, we receive the good news of everlasting life. Therefore, we have the Great Commission from Jesus to spread the gospel message to the ends of the earth, as it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:15)
Despite persecution and oppression by the Islam-leaning government, Pastor Ulo in Nigeria continues to share the gospel with boldness. He and his team drove an old van for many years, visiting village after village to hold Bible study classes. To view their testimonies in these villages, please click on this link. Recently this gospel van stopped working, leaving Pastor Ulo anxious over the lost souls who have not yet heard the good news. If the Holy Spirit moves your heart now for what Pastor Ulo’s doing, I pray that through financial giving you would have your part in the work of the gospel in Nigeria. Regardless of the amount, your offering will help them reach the $2600 goal faster that is needed to buy a new van, allowing the gospel to go forth in these remote villages.
I would also like to thank you all for being our strong spiritual support through prayer and intercession. During our mission trip to Taiwan this year, we saw our teams praying in unity every morning and preparing for class with fervor. In every situation, they were flexible and excelled at their responsibilities. They taught classes and shared the good news with students—many of them have made a decision to receive Jesus and become citizens of the kingdom. May our hearts overflow with gratitude and praise to our God, whose salvation is great and to whom belongs all the glory!
The fruit from our mission trip this year is a fruit of partnership where you took an important part in. I know that our God in heaven will reward your faith and faithful service. Rev. Rick Warren once said that when we pray, if the time is not yet ripe, God will say, “Slow!” If we are not yet ready, He will say, “Grow!” So when the time and people are both ready, I think that God will say, “Let’s sow!” I invite you to sow seeds of the gospel with us together, “giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater.” (Isaiah 55:10) We welcome you to join us and become one of the SOWing Warriors, giving $180 or more yearly and sowing seeds of God’s word into the nations!
