Please Pray For Us!

This has been a very full weekend for us. Stephen did a chalk talk this Saturday evening at Mountaintop Baptist Church, which is about 25 minutes away from Kaohsiung.

During Sunday tomorrow, we will spend the entire day with Mountaintop Baptist Church. In addition to sharing during the Sunday school hour, Stephen will preach with chalk during the morning and evening services. Evelyn will also be providing the special music for all three services. Please pray that we would not be ministering in our own strength, but that the Lord would work through us and that He would be glorified.

We especially appreciate your prayers as Stephen preaches through a translator. Having a translator repeat everything word for word means that Stephen has half of the actual time to preach. Thus a 30 minute message would last for 1 hour with a translator. Pray that he would know how to effectively present God's Word. Thank you!

Miss you lots! Wish I could have been home to talk to you yesterday. At dinner, Mom got out her notes and told us everything you talked about, and you know that Mom's notes are always very detailed!:)

May God give you both strength and grace to humbly shine forth Him in all that you do and say. Praying for you...

Hello, Stephen and Evelyn,
We are praying. We really appreciate these frequent updates, as they help us know better how to pray for you.

May God bless you as you serve Him.

Thank you for your prayers. We experienced the power of God upon the ministry.

Here is just one example. During the morning service, the pastor and his wife decided to have the young children attend the main service to hear the chalk talk. These youngsters were wired and had no idea how sit still for more than 5 seconds! Yet, as Stephen started to preach, a quiet fell over them and they paid attention. Praise the Lord!
