Queridos hermanos y hermanas (Dear brothers & sisters),
I went to Mexico to attend Mexico+ retreat in July 17-21. I met our faithful IWs who are serving in Sun Region. It is blessing for me to slow down from my busy schedule to refresh and rest. I had fellowship with Chinese IWs too. Attached is group picture for the retreat.
I went back to El Salvador on the morning of July 22. The church had thanksgiving service next day to praise the amazing work of God. The church is independent after the involvement of nine years work from three IWs, some short-term mission teams, prayer and support. After the service we spent one hour to give thanks to the Lord through testimony, hymns, Scripture and prayer. We had lunch to celebrate and I could say goodbye to these lovely brothers and sisters. Attached is group picture for the congregation. Please pray for the church: (1) the leaders and the congregation trust God; (2) the leaders rely on God to lead the church; (3) spiritual growth and increase in number.
I arrived Toronto safely on the afternoon of July 24. After taking few days rest and unpacking, I went to Hamilton, Ontario for Joint Missions Convention on August 4-7. Around 1,100 persons attended the event. I spoke in a workshop: “The opportunity and challenge for sisters to serve in mission field”. I am so glad to communicate with some sisters who are eager to serve overseas and support mission. Please pray for the guidance from God to the participants who will understand and submit the will of God. I am joyful to speak to two groups of children: the age of a group is 3-5 years old and the other group is 6-11 years old. I pray God will call some of these precious children to be His servants to share the Good News in the world.
I came back to my Toronto home on Monday afternoon. I will go to Calgary to attend Home Ministries Seminar in Ambrose on August 14-18. The Seminar is provided for returned IWs for home assignment. Please pray for these days together would allow the Spirit of God to fill us to overflowing in fresh and renewing ways.
I will speak in Cantonese and Mandarin joint morning service of Westside Calgary Chinese Alliance Church on August 19. Also, I will speak in Cantonese and Mandarin Sunday services of Calgary Chinese Alliance Church next day. Please pray for me to communicate the Word of God correctly and faithfully.
