At the beginning of 2016 I chose Deuteronomy 6:5 for my key verse. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.“ I prayed to love the Lord. Throughout this year we learn about the love of God. Our love relationship with God has deepened.
Key Verse: Matthew 28:18-20 – “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heavens and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the names of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We held the 2017 New Year Conference in South Africa at Wits center and this conference was hosted by Missionary Jacob Kim. We had 90 attendants including 25 second generation missionaries. The title of the conference was, “Look forward to the day of the Lord.”
We thank and praise God for blessing Seto and Lidya’s wedding on February 18th 2017. Missionary Peter Lee gave his wedding address based on Deuteronomy chapter 8 verse 3. About 250 people came to bless the wedding, including the missionaries, brothers and sisters in Indonesia. There are still many shepherdesses who are past the optimal age to marry, so we pray that God will raise 5 new house churches in 2017.
