We thank God for raising 6 new disciples of Jesus last Sunday. Our discipleship course began on April 30, 2017 and ended on August 27, 2017. These were almost 4 months of training where discipleship candidates were trained in the following areas: Personal Devotion, Service, A Disciple’s Material Life, and Preaching. The course was led by Bolivian shepherds along with the collaboration of M. Esteban Cho.
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.
