Prayers of thanksgiving from John and Ruth Chan as they have returned from a fruitful teaching trip in Asia, leading to new graduates following successful training in February. As you may know, John has been appointed by CBM as the new Director of International Partnerships, effective July 1, 2017. In this new role, John will represent CBM with its global partners, participate in the development of mission strategy, and provide leadership to CBM’s field staff and projects. It is a challenging responsibility that needs your continued prayer support. Ruth will continue to carry on with her responsibilities leading Chinese ministries over the coming year, working with the CBM Chinese Ministries Field Staff. Please pray for their smooth transition from Germany, and for their colleagues as they continue God’s work among the Chinese in Hannover, Bielefeld, Göttingen, Kassel and Clausthal-Zellerfeld.
