June 2018【Worship our God in any situation】

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Peace be with you!

I am so glad to write to you with my personal greeting, and to share with you the marvelous works God is doing at SOW through His abundant grace.  When David praised God in Palms 57:9: “I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations”, he was being pressed and chased by Saul, and his life was in imminent danger.  And yet in that moment of great suffering, David uttered such a profound praise to God from deep down in his heart, “Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!” David’s faith surpassed the persecution of his circumstances.  Likewise, the Christians and churches in the Muslim world today are also facing great afflictions.  Their faith is so precious as fine gold having been refined by fire.

Through the push and help of Muslim 1000, SOW is able to send them the Bible study sets and becomes their gospel companion to pray with them and to praise with them.  If you visit SOW’s office today, you can see in our storage room boxes of the English of Bible Study sets of “Book of Ezra” and “Book of Nehemiah” that just arrived from Taiwan.  In the following weeks, we will repack them for shipping to those Christians who are being persecuted in Pakistan, Nigeria, Morocco, Egypt and other Muslim countries.  In this October, we will send our coworkers to Egypt to train the local Arabic co-workers how to use SOW Bible study sets in group fellowships.   Please pray for Muslim 1000 and for the production of the Arabic version of the Bible study sets.  Let us “proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luk 4:18-19)

2018 SOW Taiwan Mission 1st training

The SOW Taiwan Short-term Mission team, after twice of equipping and training, will be going to Miaoli, Touwu, Hualien, Wuri, Kaohsiung, and Pingdong.  They will hold summer camps of English Bible study in each local church. In previous years, almost 90% of the students who attended the camps have decided to accept Lord Jesus Christ as their God, after learning the words of God. The content of SOW’s English Bible camp is very rich; with singing of English hymns, American English conversation and vocabularies, study games, group games, arts and crafts and videos of Bible stories.  We will be glad to offer you free of charge, the complete package for you or your church to use in any evangelical and mission programs.  Please contact Ivy at our office, we will send you a copy of this well-designed package.

The Book of Job Bible video filming

The Book of Job Bible video of the “Wisdom Book Bible Study Series” is in the full progress of its post-production.  Through the process of its making, we not only formed an international team, but also had many Christians actors participated and performed in the film.  We also especially look forward to the exquisite exposition by Dr. Chloe Sun.  And with a sense of humor from God, we found by accident that an athlete of the Hungarian national Olympic swimming team (in 2004 and 2008), Balzes Gercsak was one of the co-workers in our camera crews.  As the Scripture says “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him.” ( 1Co 2:9)

I thank God who always helps SOW to not only sow the seeds of truth of the Bible everywhere, but also to publish the Bible study set of the Book of Job in the 4th quarter this year.  Please pray that God will greatly use the Book of Job as a blessing to the growth of life for Christians in every local church in the world. Now let us praise together from our heart that, “Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. Blessed be his glorious name forever; may his glory fill the whole earth. Amen and Amen.” (Psm 72:18-19)
