March 2001

 

since 1991, CGBC has moved to our current address in New York. We provide tapes for borrowing at our center. After we have published our Gospel Tracts, volunteers from different churches distribute them every month. God has prepared this center for us so we can reach the people in the city.

TRACT DISTRIBUTION

Many Chinese in New York work 7 days a week in stores, factories, or restaurants. They only have one day off per year during either Thanksgiving or Chinese New Year. Attending church seems to be a privilege or social activity to them. We need to pray fervently for their salvation.

Tract-distribution Report from Juanita But

Bearing the vision of preaching the gospel to the Chinese around the world, we follow the scriptural pattern laid out for evangelism 'Beginning at Jerusalem." New York Chinatown is our own Jerusalem where we find not only Chinese but people from different parts of the world. At the beginning of 1999, when our tract distribution ministry in started Chinatown, our team was praying for the Lord to provide gospel tracts that could speak to and touch the hearts of the Chinese. The Lord answered our prayers by bringing us to work with CGBC. Now thousands are reached every month through the gospel tracts from CGBC. The designs of the tracts are especially appealing to the young as well as the old. Quite often, people would stop and ask us for more. We also thank God for the tremendous joy we feel when we see some of them come to Christ in the midst of our out reach effort. For instance, a man who works in a tofu store gave his life to Jesus when we witnessed to him about the Prince of Peace through the gospel tract "Peace Express." We thank God for giving us the privilege to serve Him in Chinatown. Please pray for the unsaved to come to Jesus.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

If it were not for God's love, would you be willing to go out in the bitter cold weather to tell others that Jesus loves them? We thank God that He blesses us each time we distribute the tracts. We pray that this year every church will promote this ministry. Please contact www.cgbc.net or FAX (212) 925-2690 to order tracts.

GRAMENT FATCTORY MINSTRY

In the 80s, there were several hundred garment factories in Manhattan, and in the 90s; various reasons resulted in these factories being moved to Brooklyn in the 8th Ave. and 3rd Ave. areas for the lower rents. Through teaching English, CGBC co-workers can enter a factory and befriend their workers. This semester, Christine and Jessica continue to teach English on weekends and they are encouraged when they see the good response of new immigrants to the Gospel. A young mother

 

who was a new believer was willing to work part time, instead of full time, in order to attend English classes, and she is looking for a bible study group to attend.

In fact, follow-up work and discipleship training is more difficult than evangelizing. Last year, several workers were willing to study the Bible and accepted the Lord, but were unable to find a church. They could only get help from cassette tapes and our prayers. Last Christmas, Gilead Fellowship of Oversea Chinese Mission church shared the Good News " The Birth of Jesus" to the workers in factory. This ministry needs the support from churches, especially pastoral staff to care for these workers. Please contact Susan Lu at SUSAN@CGBC.ORG.

EXPANSION OF THE DUPLICATION DEPARTMENT

We thank God for providing us with more co-workers to expand our Duplication Dept. Last year, God moved a couple from the Chinese Christian Church (CCC) of Greater Washington DC to be involved with this ministry. After praying, they received confirmation from God, and CCC Mission Dept's decision to send them off. They received training at our NY center earlier this year. Their church will commission them in March (Detailed report in next issue).

MARCH GOOD NEWS

A new staff member joined CGBC- Canada. From last November to this February, USA and Canada CGBC have united in praying for God's direction for the ministry for 2001. USA CGBC seeks God's grace in our ministry strategies. Please pray for the establishment of "CGBC International Board". "Concerning things to come, do you question me about my children, or give me orders about the work of my hands?" ~ Isaiah 45:11 We deeply believe God will establish His work and complete it in His time. To God be the Glory. May God keep His co-workers faithful in proclaiming the Gospel.
