We praise the Lord for what He has done over the past month.
As you know, we recently started several new classes with some several new teachers, and our SS attendance has almost doubled as a result. And not surprisingly, the rate of questions and opportunities to help has dramatically increased as well. A lot of times initial questions a person asks here are not exactly easy ones. In the first month, I have been asked to help them answer questions about Sheol, purgatory, where Jesus was after death and before the resurrection, homosexuality, how to know God’s leading, how the Holy Spirit speaks to us, anger, and how to study the Bible, and how to deal with problems in your class.
New Believers, Baptisms and Other Discipleship Times
In addition to SS growth, several new people are coming to our Bible studies. “Pet” is a new believer and has been coming for several weeks, faithfully, with new questions each day. Jo and “Nam” are a young couple that has been coming for months now, and have recently believed. “Dew” has started coming faithfully and is involved.
This Sunday we hope to baptize these and a few others!
Teaching in Taiwan
The first week of July, I will be in Taiwan with Jake Taube and associates, to teach at their regional meeting for their mission board. There will be new missionary families and several missions interns in attendance, so pray that the Lord would use me to be a help and encouragement to them as they start down the treacherous missions that boasts so many casualties.
- Pray for the new believers and their growth and understanding of truth!
- There are plenty of “issues” alongside the blessings!
- I am busy—Pray for laborers! There is a lot of work to do!
