Update (August 2016)

When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God Almighty (Jeremiah 15:16)

Dear Friends,

Our summer has flown by quickly for sure. It wasn’t too long ago when we planted the seeds in the vegetable garden, now the harvest season is almost over. We do however enjoy the season-long marigolds as well as the late boomer sedum flowers.

Speaking of harvest, remember QM (husband) and HY (wife)? In early 2015, they came to Minnesota for her 2-year experience as the University of Minnesota visiting scholar. WMPL board member Joe and wife Luanne Wyssmann are their host family to help them settle in. They became believers shortly after they arrived. HY has been attending our Saturday evening Bible study group and growing in her understanding and faith of Lord Jesus. QM came back to visit whenever he could. Two weeks ago, QM went home from his summer visit for the last time before HY completes her visiting scholar experience in February. The fellowship witnessed their public confession of faith and baptism in Lake Josephine, Roseville, MN. It was a blessed event to honor God and to fellowship. The sunset was beautiful between thunderstorms. We praise God and give Him the glory!

Fall start-ups of the Bible study begin this Saturday, September 3: Two groups in  Minnesota, two groups in East Asia.

We are excited to have purchased the tickets to visit East Asia October 13 – November 3. Many ministry opportunities await us and we have been busy preparing for them.

Prayer Requests

  • QM hasn’t found a church in where he lives. He will call in to participate in our study every Saturday. May the Lord bless and protect him.
  • A blessed new season for learning to follow Jesus in obedience. Pray for spiritual growth.
  • Discernment for preparing lessons for our trip.
  • Our three children (Daniel, Anna, and Nathan) for their desire to follow Jesus.

Serving Him,

Simon and Sandy
