Two New Churches Starting!

Two young men in our church are starting new churches this month! This is so thrilling for us, and I hope you will rejoice with us. Both of these guys have been working with me closely for about three years. They have served as assistant pastors for the past year or so. They have witnessed, preached, baptized, and discipled. They have proven to be faithful men who can teach others also. When the church went through an event of persecution, they were the ones that boldly led the church through it!

This could not come at a better time for the first church, either. Our seating capacity has been stretched for the past few months, and the giving has been wonderful. So a group of the church’s most faithful members, workers, and teachers have decided to join one of the new churches. This will free up some seats at the old church as well as contribute to the health of the new churches! It is so exciting to watch this young church get involved in church-planting with finances, manpower, and prayer.

We want to give you the chance to get on board with these two young men – Ning and Cong Wei – as they plant new churches and carry the Gospel to thousands of homes that do not have it! We want to make sure that they are taken care of as their own churches mature and learn to support their pastor. The total expense for each of the new church’s rent, utilities, pastor’s salary, and everything else will be close to $7,500 a year. This is obviously a very small number compared to the cost of a new church plant in many other places! These churches will be taking their own offerings and paying all their bills they can, but it will likely be a little while before they are fully self-sustaining.

If you would like to help out financially with these new churches during their infancy, you can go to www.projectchina.org to give online. (there’s also some pics up there of the guys if you want to have a look) If you want to give by check, you can mail it to Project China, P.O. Box 442, Alpharetta, GA, 30009.

All that is received will be used 100% for the expenses of new Chinese church plants! If more is given than is needed by these two new churches, it will be reserved for the next church planted in the ministry here in Northeast China.

I can give my wholehearted approval of both these men, and I hope you will pray about helping their new churches get rolling! They have both already gathered a core of people to teach and worship with and to help them launch the church. They are ready to move to the next stage, and I can’t wait to see what the Lord will do through their labors!
