After 2 weeks of incredible teaching and training in the States, the team and I finally made our way over to Asia. Traveling was smoother than ever before and jetlag has been defeated!
In my city, there are currently 6 long-term workers and 6 first-year workers. It’s been a joy for me to reconnect with my co-laborers and super exciting for me to work alongside our new workers. We have a great group! We know that God has entrusted us with an incredible mission, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to work alongside one another. Please be praying for us in the next coming weeks, as we will continue to train our new workers, share the gospel with hundreds of Asian college students, and see eternity change before our very eyes! Pray that above all else, we would be obedient to the Lord as He directs our steps!
Just yesterday, a couple of us visited a new top-100 university that we will be working on this year. The skies were grey and gloomy and we prayed against rain. As we arrived to the campus, we saw bright tents up for orientation and hundreds of students with their parents and suitcases. They were making their way to their dorms for the very first time. Suddenly, it started to downpour! As my two American friends and I stood umbrella-less under the pouring rain, a sweet Asian girl ran up to us and invited us to join her under the tent. Approximately 10 of us crammed into a 3×3 foot space as the rain continued to come down. This was totally the Lord! Thank you Jesus for the rain! Each person had incredible English, so our first-year workers were able to form new friendships!
As I was talking to one of the girls, I found out that she is a freshman and just arrived to the school!!! Seeing that I am a foreigner, she brought up religion. She mentioned how she was able to attend church services in the past and felt “warmth in her heart” as she sang the worship songs. Yet, she doesn’t know the story of Jesus!!! When I asked if she was willing to hear, she excitedly said YES! We’ll be meeting with her as soon as we can. Please pray that she would be open and receptive and say yes to Jesus.
Thanks so much for partnering with me and believing in what the Lord is doing here in Asia!
- My sister’s fiancé goes into surgery on September 3rd. This will hopefully be the last surgery to repair previous damage from his appendix (last December).
- Our new team – That they would be sold-out for Jesus and excited and expectant for what is to come
- Balance for me as I work with my first-year workers, disciple Asian students, and continue classes.
