Dear Heartcry, in Jesus Christ, we believe that you are still healthy and peace.
Thank God during the past month that God gave my family health and grace to serve Him. First of all I thank God for spiritual fellowship with Him. I have to say that everyday fellowship with the Lord is a great privilege that God has for me in the work of serving Him. When studying the Bible to teach the people of God it is a time God taught me personally a lot. Particularly last month when researching II Peter, the Lord taught me to develop Christian qualities in order not to be deceived by false prophets, false teachers, and firmly remain steadfast in God's ministry until the end. Peter wrote: “I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder, knowing that the laying aside of my earthly dwelling is imminent, as also our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me” (2 Peter 1:13-14).
As for the work I am managing the local church; every day we take time to pray much for the Church, the work of studying the Bible, and preparing to preach the Bible to God's people. These are very important works and important responsibilities. We also visited the family in our church that needed pray and encouraged them in the Lord along with many other pastoral activities but could not speak all here.
Thank you, God, that we are called to return to the true teachings of the Bible. I believe this is the greatest blessing God gives me, and our family, to not be misled by the wiles of the wicked. There are many who are in what is called The Power Church, which has a lot of false teachers spreading false doctrines and practices in Vietnam. Many believers inquire: “Why do the other churches have the power? They are free to dance, sing, pray in tongues and they love listening to pleasant messages with no mention of the problem of sin. If their doctrine is wrong and contrary to the teachings of the Bible, why do they have the majority to follow them?”
I believe that we just persevere in prayer and concentrate on the work of the Lord, He will help us to expand and develop the Church and seek to please God more and more. We are extremely grateful to the Triune God for the great grace and the supreme sovereignty for all aspects in our life.
We are grateful to the leadership HeartCry for giving attention, recognition, and accompany us as fellow workers to serve in Vietnam, our homeland. We are grateful to the church for you, the benefactor, silently praying and supporting us financially for the Lord's work in Vietnam. Sincerely, Banh B.
