Greetings from Germany

Dear brothers and sisters,

Thank you for your continued interest in our work in Germany. The missionary work is full of challenges, but at the same time we have greatly experienced God’s presence and have been blessed by God. We are very grateful for your prayers and faithful walk with us.

Ministry/Project Update

The evangelical ministry of the church continues to unfold. On a large scale, the church holds some events such as evangelistic sermons, Christmas, and Chinese New Year to reach more non-Christians. On a smaller scale, the brothers and sisters have a sense for evangelism and introduce their friends to us so that we can visit and share the Gospel. At the end of last year, three non-Christians came to our church one after another, and they were all willing to attend Sunday services. My wife and I have been visiting each of them regularly, sharing our Christian faith with them and praying with them. So far two of them have decided to come to faith. Hallelujah, glory to the Lord! And of these, a sister, sought God because her mother was very sick in her hometown and she was very distressed because she could not return to her country. God heard her prayer and eased her mother’s pain before her death. She experienced the love and power of God and was willing to believe in the Lord. She also shared Jesus with her mother and she accepted the Lord before she died. Thank you, Lord!

Family Update

We thank the Lord that our family quickly adapted to our new surroundings. (In July 2022, our family moved from Heidelberg to Kassel in accordance with the needs of the institution.) Our four-year-old daughter was soon able to enter kindergarten and has a new best friend. She now prefers to speak German and not Chinese anymore. Our son has just turned two and is getting more and more active. We need more experiences to engage him.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for the newly converted members of our church. Pray that the Lord would strengthen their faith and that their spiritual lives would continue to grow.
  • Pray for the evangelistic ministry in our church. Pray that God would open the doors of the gospel and that the hearts of our brothers and sisters would be prepared to actively proclaim it.
  • Pray for the German-Chinese Christian Easter Camp in April and the three Chinese Churches Camp (Kassel, Göttingen, and Marburg Church) in May. Pray that God would take care of all the preparations and the preparation of the speakers’ messages, so that all the brothers and sisters attending would be edified in life.
  • Pray for the brothers and sisters in the church who are weak, sick, and facing difficulties in their lives. Pray that God would strengthen them and help them through the difficult times.

Thank you for reading our update. Please continue to pray for us. We are grateful you are our missionary partners in Germany as we work for the Lord in His kingdom and to win lost souls. May the Lord bless you and your family.
