Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings from the Christian Witness Center! May the grace and love from our Lord Jesus be with you and your family.
Here is our most recent news. Please lift us up before the throne of Christ.
(1)August Bible Camp—will be held from July 30 to Aug. 5. This year we will study the Life of Christ. Please not only give thanks for the 45 people who have applied and studied hard in the last few months, but also pray that they will persevere in their faith. The due date was June 13. If you miss this camp session, you can start to apply for next January’s Bible Camp, Dec. 31- Jan. 6, 2007, where we will study the Book of Acts.
(2) August Discipleship Training—will be held from Aug. 6 to 12. One of the speakers is Rev. Cyrus Lam. He is the Director of Gospel Operation International, which has sent out quite a few missionaries into different areas. His expertise is in Mission, which we have not taught for several years. Please start to prepare your hearts and invite people to come. It will be a useful training program, especially when we will be entering into the new semester or dealing with the turnover of coworkers. We would like to emphasize again that the Discipleship Training is not for the new believers only. All the brothers and sisters who wish to grow continuously and need to be equipped are invited.
(3) Give thanks for the Youth Camp—39 youths came to the Youth Camp (June 4-10). This year the most exciting part was when they witnessed in two nearby camps. Praise the Lord!
(1)Pastor Billy Ko— has a very busy schedule in the summer. Please remember his ministry and health in your prayers. Please also give thanks that the construction of Columbia Chinese Christian Church (where he is stationed) is nearly complete. In the past year, God provided us with enough funds, materials, and equipment (e.g. our pews, etc), so we can enjoy new classrooms, furniture and larger parking lot now.
(2) Sister Cindy Chiang—In the summer, she not only ministers in different churches and fellowships on weekends, but also wraps up the Center’s financial statement for CPA auditing and IRS filing. Please remember her and pray that her soul is as healthy as her body (III John 2).
(3) Pastor Joel Li— is back with us in Mid-May! Praise the Lord for his new, refreshing spirit, his sermons, and his good insight after his 8-month sabbatical leave. Currently Abby and the children are still in California for their final study stage. Please remember their family in your prayers.
(4) Sister Vivian Tsen— went back to Taiwan to visit her mom who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks for your prayers. Her mom is saved and was baptized. Although her health deteriorated, her spirit is good. Please remember them in your prayers.
(5) Sister Ching Kuan— has been busy with both the Senior and Mothers Ministry in Columbia Chinese Christian Church. In addition, she has assisted Pastor Ko. Many people are blessed through her.
(6) Brother Alan Stephan—he was so excited that last week he used his own vacation time to serve as a counselor in one camp near us. He led two young people in his cabin to Christ. Even though the weather is extremely hot (about 90 degrees everyday), he works very hard on the mowing and maintenance jobs. Give thanks for this faithful coworker.
(7) Brother Dennis Wong—he will join our ministry on July 1 and will station at Fayetteville, AR. Please pray for smooth moving, the new family adjustment (he has two young kids), and the new ministry there.
C. Short-Term Mission Teams
There will be two Missions trips: one in August (Aug 18-27) and one in September (Sept. 8-17). The goal for these trips is ministering to new students. Please remember those mission churches that are doing the recruiting and training. Also pray that the local churches will work with the teams to bring harvest for our Lord.
D. Dinning Room Expansion:
After many years of preparation and saving money, the Dinning Room construction will start soon. Thanks for your prayers and offerings, and please continue to pray for the project.
E. Other details:
Please check our July prayer calendar.
Thank you very much for your fervent prayers and support. May the Lord bless you more and more.
In His Service,
Pastor and Director of CWC
