Chinese New Year Prayer Update

February 9, 2017

 

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)

我們原是神所作成的,是在基督耶穌裡創造的,為的是要我們行各樣的善事,就是神預先所安排的。(以弗所書 2:10)

Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is quickly approaching. This is the most important holiday in Taiwan and China, and is a time for family members to come together and feast as they look forward to another year and the promise of Spring. Please remember to pray for us (and for the other Christians in Taiwan) to be faithful witnesses to the hope of Jesus with our non-believing family members during this annual gathering. 

Other Matters for Prayer:

1. Please pray for Michael Liu who is looking to rent an apartment in Sanxia either this week or next in order to be a more effective evangelist in our community. Michael has been commuting from Taipei City to help with outreach in Sanxia, but now that he has finished most of his classes at the Reformed Seminary, he is ready to move here so that we can work side by side in our ministry of witness and discipleship.

2. Our fellowship has been growing steadily both numerically and spiritually, and we as a leadership team believe that after Chinese New Year is the right time to begin looking for a site to rent. Please pray for our ongoing search regarding a suitable meeting location of a new Gospel Center in Sanxia where we can host Evangelistic Bible Studies, English Outreach, and eventually our Sunday Worship Services. 

3. Please also pray that we would be able to partner with local Reformed Churches here who are willing to help with fundraising, oversight, prayer, and encouragement for the Sanxia Reformed Church Plant. 

Blessings in Christ and Happy Year of the Rooster!
