September 2017 — “After
buying candy from a young
boy named Reggie in a Walmart parking lot,
I went on to share the Gospel with him….

He prayed and accepted the Lord Jesus
Christ as his personal Savior. After seeing
his little brother, Lawson, who was also
selling candy in the parking lot, we went
on to share the Gospel with him…. I got to
lead him in prayer and he accepted the Lord
Jesus Christ, too. We had a Gospel tract of
the Victory Baptist Church. We gave it to
them and asked them to visit that church.”

Fairfield Chamber of Commerce Sidewalk
Sale and passed out free bottled water as well

Francisco, California,
October 2017 — “By
God’s grace, I have set the
date of February 11, 2018,
to start a Chinese independent Baptist church.

I pray that I will have all the logistics worked
out by then as far as the location and name of
the church as well as a group of people willing
to begin this church. I ask for prayer because
this is not going to be an easy endeavor!”

Church Re-start in
Commerce, Texas
June 2017 — “The new
building looks great and is
being put to use. We now
have our Sunday morning
services followed by a lunch
in our new kids’ building
followed by our ‘evening…now…afternoon’
service. This has worked perfectly for our
young church’s needs right now. The meal
and fellowship have served to knit our hearts
together as a church family.”
