For Personal Needs
- Please continue to pray for our friends who are seeking God. The Lord bring them to our church and let them understand the gospel. One day they will also acknowledge the One and Only God, repent their sins, trust in Jesus, and be born again. Please care for them and pay attention to their needs.
- The church has arranged busy activities during summer. We will have student ministry, outdoor activities, short-term mission, caring and visitation, etc. The schedules are heavy but they also provide good opportunities for everyone to get involved in church ministries. We will learn to work with each other and have fellowship in the Lord. Our Lord is the good God and He blesses us for walking with Him. Be joyful in the Lord and give thanks always.
The church has decided to support $400 from mission budget to a Singapore Seminary. They are seeking supports from churches and organizations to fund part of the cost to build a student dormitory.
