Dear HeartCry and Supporters,
Thanks to God for the past month, we are so grateful to God for His protection and blessing, and our children are well and peaceful in His grace!
We are grateful to God for His mercy, care, and protection so that I continue to persevere in grace and faith. The Lord said: Whoever preserves his life will lose it. But whoever loses his life for my sake, he shall find it (Matthew 10:39). This is a truth that Jesus taught His disciples, and He taught me in the last month, which is very challenging. The truth of the Lord is eternal and nothing can be shaken. Thank the Lord by this teaching He has proven that our personal spiritual life is anchored in God. For me, this is the motivation to serve the Church.
The pastoral work of the local church and the responsibility of personal witness for the past year has been a blessing. We have received five new believers through evangelism, who were also baptized. This is a humble number though we are also pray and bear witness to many people, even though they still do not believe. We thank God because we believe that this is also the time God wants us to sow the seed of His Word while we wait upon Him to cause the seed to bear fruit.
Thank the Lord after a year of looking back with great gratitude to God for the changes in the life of the members of the Church. They have grown in their faith in the Lord. Many members said they used to enjoy the shallow evangelism held in other churches, but now when they learn the truth about what the Bible teaches about His grace in salvation, they do not look to be entertained but to hear the Word of God as it is simply taught. Thank God He has used His truth to encourage us. Even though it may not seem like a big thing, we thank God for the maturing of our church.
We would like to thank you on behalf of our local Church to your Church for your interest in helping to pray and support us for the financial part of the year. May the Almighty God bless all of you!
