The Lord has been providing above and beyond all for which we asked and hoped. Our attendance numbers for our morning worship service have been averaging in the mid/upper 50s for the past couple of months. We have several regular attendees preparing for membership and we are looking forward to receiving seven new members (four communicant) in January. For the past few months, financial giving has exceeded our approved budget. And our church-planting intern, Mingzhe “Isaac” Zhou, and his family have been a true blessing to our congregation since coming out here in July. We are excited to see how the Lord will use them in the future, especially among Chinese-speaking people in the region. Isaac has launched a Chinese-language Bible study that meets in his home. Both Isaac and I regularly invite people we meet to come to church and to the church’s Bible studies. Please pray for Isaac as he prepares for licensure, and for the men in the congregation who are being trained for the offices of elder and deacon.
