Instead of reporting on a past event, maybe it will add a fresh dimension to our posts to give you an advance notice on some of the most important prayer requests for the months ahead.
Though we don’t have specific dates yet, there are at least two chalk-talks coming up. The days leading up to a chalk-talk make it what it is; pray that the messages I’m to give would be clear to me and become a part of my life now so that sharing would become second-nature. On April 18, a meeting in Tainan will be held in order to provide communication opportunities between Junior High School students in different countries. One of our teachers had an unexpected illness and I may need to take their place if they haven’t recovered by that time. Pray for clear communication. On April 24-26 our team will be enjoying the annual TESOL Retreat in the beautiful city of Kaohsiung. Pray for us to know how we might best exhort one another to love and good works as we follow Christ together. I’m looking forward to the testimonies and teaching tips. In May my church asked if I would share some of the differences between dating and the spirit of courtship, a new concept for many. Pray for God to draw the hearts of parents and children together on an issue which often brings division and bitterness. Last but not least, I hope that throughout this spring season the Lord would remind you to pray for the 9th-grade students here at Nan Jung Junior High School. In preparation for graduation, they undergo some of their most intense testing as well as “life purpose evaluation”. Pray for wise decisions.
Thank you. I really look forward to reporting how the Lord works.
