German UBF Staff Conference In Dachau near München (1.25-27)
God pours his blessings on us. Peter Kwak shared beautiful opening message on 2 Co.12 "The Power of Christ." 18 chapters gave reports. Also reports about WM and Daily Bread. We had a report from RL who is teaching at YUST.
We talk about how we can fish, how to attract today's people to come to Jesus! Here is the answer! “I should meet Jesus and solve all my life problems, like the Samaritan woman! Then I cannot but tell like her to all I have known before, and to all I have met all my life, “Come and see Jesus! He has solved all my life problems! He will solve yours too!!”
M. Marcos Shin was sent out 22 years ago from Kyung-Hee UBF chapter. He and his House church (M. Ruth, Marcos Jr., and Somang) experienced so many hardships to survive as self-supporting missionaries. After so many ups and downs, M. Marcos is coming out as a refined gold from the hot furnace. His messages and shepherd life move many unmovable Bolivians' hearts. All members have great vision to grow as global leaders, learning English to attend 2018 ISBC.
PERU (EFRAIN, EUGENIA, ESTEBAN) AND THE FIRST HOUSE CHURCH (JORGE AND CATHY)
Efrain was one of the first Mexican missionaries to be sent out to other countries. He learned English to be an English teacher. Eugenia got sick and had many hardships. M. Abraham Hwang taught the Bible through skype on Wed. and Fri., together with Isidro and other Mexican missionaries. CU, Mexico supported to have a Bible Center.
PRAISE GOD WHO HAS DONE HIS WORK THROUGH M. ESTEBAN & PAULINE CHO
We praised God because God has done great work in Bolivia through M. Esteban and Pauline Cho's near 30 years of sacrificial service! On Jan 21st (Sun), Sp. Mateo Arebalo succeeded to M. Esteban as the director of Santa Cruz 1, Bolivia. Abraham Eric will be the first president of the board of elders.
RWANDAN STUDENTS MADE THEIR OWN INITIATIVE TO STUDY THE BIBLE
M. Daniel Yang
Dear Precious Prayer Coworkers!
Rwandan students made their own initiative to dedicate their 2 weeks sweet vacation (right after final exams) to intensive Mark Gospel Bible study (Disciple Workshop) from Jan 22 to Feb 2. So far, 27 students (from next Monday 30) came to Huye (campus town) and devote themselves from 6 am to 9 pm for entire 2 weeks.
On January 8 (Orthodox Christmas) God gave us his 5th gift allowing M. Petra (48 years old) a smooth delivery with less pain than before. Isn't it a good sign to bless our 2018 International Summer Bible Conference?
