January 2019【A New Year with New Hope and New Strength】

Dear brothers and sisters,

It is the time of the year when people make new plans, In the new beginning of a year. With the mighty power of creation, God opens the curtain of a new beginning in the first verse of the book of Genesis, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1). When God says, let there be light, and there is light. God commands order out of void and chaotic darkness. By His words God creates everything and human beings, His most beloved you and me. Regardless of the ups and downs in the past year, the words of God will always be the lamp to our feet and light to our path. As I John 4:9 says, that “the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.” Today God continues to breathe the new life, new hope and new energy into our lives.

The birth of Jesus Christ marks the new era in human history and is the beginning of the New Testament between God and humans. In John 1:12, the scripture says, “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” From then on, every person on earth is given the privilege to become the child of God and have eternal life by accepting the salvation of Jesus Christ. God desires everyone to be saved and not to be perished. Today, the mission of proclaiming this good news has been entrusted to you and me.

SWe at SOW have committed ourselves to this mission faithfully, through the production of a series of Bible study guides and videos. Following the publication of The Book of Job Bible Study Set in Chinese, the English version of it will be completed in the first quarter of 2019. In May, we will start the filming of the video of the book of Psalms and The Book of I Samuel Bible Study Set will be available after Summer. Every project we do is made possible by God’s provision and guidance; not by our intelligence or skills, We need your prayer support for God’s continuous guidance of SOW’s ministries in the Arabic world. In February, I will travel to Egypt and its neighboring countries, to demonstrate how to use the Arabic version of The Book of Esther Bible Study Set in disciple training and small groups . We know the perpetual purpose of God, who gives us His words, is for “giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater”. (Isiah 55:10)

Although the power of Muslim is huge in the Arabic world, Jesus proclaimed clearly the prophesy of Isaiah had been fulfilled: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed” (Luke 4:18-19) Today, the proclamation of Jesus continues to be fulfilled in our generation. Because regardless the alteration of the ages, the will of God and His decrees will be last forever.

May you be blessed in the coming year with deeper experience of the mighty power of God and be filled with joy and peace from Jesus Christ.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
