Growing in spiritual fruitfulness:

Growing in sharing gospel and God’s love:
We continue to follow up with the students. We had a Friday fun party and almost every English camp team had a reunion get together. It is great to create those opportunities to keep in touch with our friends. They said that they miss their friends and experiencing warm welcome so much. They look forward to spend time together again.
Sano & I had dinner with Ger, Fluke and Chui. We were able to discuss the question “What are we living for on this earth?” All three were not sure about what are they are living for? They were confused and were challenged to think more about life after death.
Pray that the gospel and God‘s love will grow in them, soften their hearts and the truth will set them free from this messy world!
Growing in relationship with family:
Thank God for leading my grandma to come to our Mother’s day service at church last August. We had a great time together and she got to hear testimonies from our church members.
We did the ceremony to show respect to all the moms. Please pray that God will open and change her heart of stone to be a heart of flesh. I love her so much and would love to see her come to believe in Jesus Christ. Please pray for her health also.
Growing in Life on Life:
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it. 2 Timothy 3:14
I am leading and having a bible study with these two transition women this year! They are Som and Penny. We have learned about what is mobilization, understanding the new role from students to a workers, how our lives can impact the world, and now we are meditating on the verses about perseverance in the midst of challenging circumstances. This is encouraging us to walk in faith with him in the workplace.
Pray for both of their relationship with God and walk in faith in daily lives.
Pray for Som, she is a french tutor now. This is her main means of providing for herself. Pray that God will give her more students and she will trust the Lord with all her heart about His providing for her need.
Pray for Penny, She is a trainee teacher now. Pray that she will trust and depend on God’s wisdom for teaching her high school students.
Som And her students.

Growing in relationship with the Body of Christ:
We just had our church retreat on September 26-27. Our theme this year is " The Relationship"
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35
I learned that the relationship starts from God. We can’t love other people by ourself or our own strength. It is necessary for us to depend on God in every relationship. From the sermon in Psalm 16 I was so encouraged about who God is. He is our Refuge, our Lord, our treasure and our wonderful counselor. His characteristic must be our pleasure and joy!!!! and this reminds me of who I am. When we have a good and right relationship with the Lord, it will lead the good and right relationship with the body of Christ and others. We can love them through His love and it means we are growing in be like Him and making Him know by loving one another.

Growing in Godly Character:
We have our staff training every week in different topic. Theology, support maintenance and develop in godly character. One thing that I have learn from the theology and encouraged me about God is that He is Self- sustaining. He is above all things, He is already there, no one created Him. He was not born and he will not die, he is eternal!!! This is hard to understand! But God must be like that, if not He is not God! How this affect my faith and my relationship with him? This made me think more and focus on the eternal word. Everything in this world is just temporary, our life is short, the suffering, sickness, happiness, are so short compared with the eternal life. This helps my desire in holding on to God who is never changing. He like the living rock in my daily life. I want to live in purity and trust in Him even I don’t know what will happen tomorrow. God is already goes before me.
I would like to encourage you to keep faithful in our part; keep pouring the water, planting the seed and God who will give the growth. and also keep praying. I believe that prayers are moving things to growing and bear fruit!!! His promises never change. He is going to do His will; what He said he would do in our lives!
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
“Thankful for your love, prayers and support”
Please let me know what can I pray for you?
Love & pray,
