December 2019【Share the Good News with the People Who Sit in Darkness】

Peace to you in this Christmas season, beloved brothers and sisters!   About seven hundred years before our Lord Jesus Christ came into the world, the prophet Isaiah prophesied, “For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His authority shall grow continually, and there shall be endless peace…” (Isaiah 9:6-7a) There is a clear narrative arc in biblical history from the book of Genesis to the book of Malachi, all pointing us to a Savior. He is the Rock from of old and the Prince of Peace. He is Jesus Christ—born into human flesh to redeem people from every tribe, nation, and tongue. However, today in the Arab world, 95% of the populations still have not heard of the Gospel. For nearly one thousand and five hundred years, Muslims have lived under the binding laws and traditions of Islam. As Christmas is approaching, may the love God has for the world touch our hearts so deeply that we would also ache and labor for the salvation of their souls. Through the teaching of God’s words, they may know Christ and receive the salvation in Jesus.   SOWIM’s Muslim 1000 ministry seeks to make our Bible study series available in the Arabic language and donate 1000 sets of study materials yearly in support of mission work among Muslims. In 2020, SOWIM will publish the Book of Ruth Study Set in Arabic, which will then be used in churches and ministries in Egypt, Syria, and Palestine. I sincerely invite you to sow into and pray for the $50,000 needed for this pioneer project from start to finish.   Now, with just a QR code scan away, you can read about SOWIM’s Muslim 1000 campaign, highlights of our production, latest ministry updates, monthly prayer letters, as well as feature articles on biblical places and artifacts via SOWIM’s Line and WeChat accounts. In addition, SOWIM will also publish study sets on the books of 2 Samuel and Psalms in 2020 that has a combined production cost of $500,000. May we have one heart to answer this call and finish the task well! Through your love and faith in sowing into the ministry, may God fulfill his purposes and will among us—giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater (Isaiah 55:10b). When Christ was born, the angels proclaimed, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people.” (Luke 2:10) I pray that when you share the joy of Christmas with your loved ones, your heart has room for the many Muslims who sit in darkness, and await to hear the words of God, as the heavenly hosts exclaimed: “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”   (Luke 2:14)       In Him, Susan Chen President, Founder & Lifetime volunteer Spring of Water International Ministries
