February 19, 2017 Prayer Note

Dear Family & Friends,

“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision carries any weight – the only thing that matters is faith working through love.”  Gal. 5:6

There are so many things that we as people try to set up as being important: 1.  The name on your church door

2.  Do you have a church building?

3.  The extent of your education

4.  The size of your gathering

5.  Style of worship

The list could go on and on.  Anything on this list has some importance until you compare it to what we are called as Christians to do.  Paul says that we are called to work out our faith in love.  We are to be loving as we live faithfully for our Savior.  Jesus said that love would be the mark of our discipleship to the world.  Pray with us that me remember to practice what really matters, “Love.”

A group from our team is heading to the Home of God’s Love on Monday morning to help move boxes and furniture out of the old building so that it can be remodeled.  Please pray for safety as we work.

Ministry to families in crisis is always challenging.  The Home of God’s Love, Ray of Hope, Taiwan Xi En, and Pregnancy Support Center are all ministries that we have connections to here in Taiwan that serve some aspect of families being in crisis.  The point that unites them all is ministry to children.  Taiwan regulations make it difficult to serve them easily, but they are persevering.  We ask that you pray for these ministries and others like them that show their faith in Christ through acts of love.  Pray specifically that their acts of love will have an enduring impact on the families they touch.

The I Will Follow You Tube channel and accompanying social media pages are slowly building interest.  We are learning how to use social media better to reach people that are interested in learning about spiritual things.  Our hope is that the social media pages and videos will bring us into personal contact with people that God is preparing to hear the gospel.  Pray with us that we will be wise and discerning as we move forward seeking out people God is calling to himself.

The Jang family will begin a set of stories tonight from the book of John on the miracles of Jesus.  Each member of the family is learning as we read and discuss the scripture, but it has yet to make an eternal difference in Mr. Jang.  Pray for Mr. Jang to be changed by work of God and the witness of his wife and son.

Thank you for praying with us.

God Bless,

John & Cheryl
