Last week M. B.P. (Turkey) had a first Bible study with some Georgian students in Georgia. He realized their strong spiritual thirsty for the word of God. They asked someone can come and teach them the life giving word of God. Please pray that God may send a good Bible teacher to Georgia as soon as possible.
We had new year Bible key verse symposiums for two separate days (1/14 & 21). I thank God for growing the faith of our leaders and members. My first daughter will graduate University soon and will move to Korea on 2/26 and she will stay for a long time. We pray that God may provide her all necessary things including finances and bless her to learn God of Korea as well!
Would you please remember us in your prayers? Every Sunday 9 people including 7 bible students attends to our Sunday Worship Service. Among them, two are university students. Also, we engage 12 one-to-one bible studies weekly and 6 people participate in the Group Bible Study.
Our prayer topics are:
1. To raise student-disciples in National Taiwan University.
2. M. Mark Hui’s powerful Chinese Sunday message and Gloria’s English translation.
3. To raise Missionary Mark as a professor shepherd.

WE ARE GOD'S CHILDREN, HEIRS OF GOD AND CO-HEIRS WITH CHRIST
Paul H. Lee
Key verse: Romans 8:15-17
“For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father”. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs-heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ. If indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory”
M. Josue accepted Jesus in his earlier times, but in 2004, the Lord called him to begin a new life of faith at Caracas UBF; here, he could learn a lot about the grace and love of God and grow as a shepherd. In 2011, the Lord opened the door for his wife, Maria and him to go out as missionaries to Panamá to co-work with M. Juan Baek’s family, till 2013. Since then, he and his wife have been gradually serving the mission independently.
