By the grace of God, 2 shepherds preached two messages during the evening program. These messages talked about repentance in the middle of affliction time in our people. 3 life testimonies were powerful. Young people have been encouraged and receptive towards the Word of God. The environment was youth oriented. Please keep praying for Venezuela.
Last May 2016, I and my wife, Karen, moved from New York, NY to Dallas, TX. God richly blessed our house church while we were in Columbia University Bible Fellowship in New York; we learned from M. David & Joy Baik and M. Samuel & Ruth Shin, prayed alongside with them, studied the Bible with others, and raised up disciples of Jesus.
This weekend, we will have our German Staff Conference at Worms where in 1521 Martin Luther stood the test before the Emperor, papal legate, bishops, etc. Our conference will focus around the main tenants of the reformation.

The Living Hope Through Christ’s Resurrection (1Pe 1:3)
By James Lee (Africa Coordinator)
On 17-20 August, we had the 2017 Southern Africa Bible conference at Stoney Ridge, Johannesburg. It felt like being on a high mountain far away from the troubles of the world, where we could spend time in Jesus' glorious presence through singing, praying, Bible study, testimony writing, listening to God's Word and having fellowship with God's people.
