Winter Flurries

We have been passing through a period of calm between the Christmas/New Year holiday and Chinese New Year coming up (Feb 14). But just now we are in the midst of a sudden flurry of events.

Last Sunday (Jan 24), Cornerstone Baptist Church held its annual business meeting. New church officers were chosen for 2010, including the increase of one additional deacon, for a total of three.  Our church is growing!

This coming weekend, Art Brammer who is a BMM co-worker and former Taiwan missionary (now in New Zealand), will be stopping in with us for a brief visit.  He will be preaching in both our Chinese worship service and our English worship service.

Youth Winter Camp

Our youth are heading off to winter camp on Monday, February 1 for three days of exciting activities in GuGuan,  Central Taiwan. We have eleven teens attending this year. Our family will not be able to accompany them due to a scheduling conflict, but Sam Hung, one of our deacons, will be leading the group instead. Please pray for the teens to have safe and fun time together and that they will make important decisions that will equip them to stand up to the pressures of their peers and society.

OASIS Conference

Our family will be traveling to Thailand from February 1 to 5 to participate in Baptist Mid-Missions’ biennial OASIS conference for spiritual enrichment. It will give us an opportunity to network with other Asia missionaries, receive spiritual instruction and encouragement, and enjoy a brief respite from the pressures of daily ministry. Please pray for a safe journey and profitable time spent together.

Chinese New Year

During the next few weeks, many of our people will be traveling, participating in family gatherings, and entering into other activities involved in this traditional Chinese holiday. Please pray for our people to conduct themselves in a manner befitting believers as they face overt pressures from family and friends, and the temptation to relax their spiritual vigilance.
