celebrated last Christmas in a
garment factory on 8th Ave. with Gilead
Fellowship. April 17 this year we were
together again cele-brating Easter in
the same garment factory. Although there
were only about seven or eight workers
at the meeting we did not change our plans.
We preached to them the good news about
Jesus rising from death. The workers reacted
well. We remember the Bible saying in
Ecclesiastes 11:6, "Sow your seed in the
morning, and at evening let not your hands
be idle." We should evangelize
whatever the situation is.
factory workers have been moving from
one factory to another because of recession
and the low business season. Many of our
factory friends have left us and new faces
filled their places. We had five new believers
before, but now only one is left and this
has made follow-up work very challenging.
Besides, this factory closed down in May.
We have no clue if we can continue with
our English classes. We can only pray
that God will open doors to our Gospel
friends, and that the new believers will
find nourishing churches.
is by God's grace that we had a chance
to know the boss of a garment factory.
Since May 9 we have started broadcasting
gospel cassette tapes in this factory.
Pray for the preparation of our programs.
Since the expansion of our tape-duplicating
department to the Greater Washington area,
our orders have unexpectedly increased
and this situation has made us very busy.
Because of the need of the New York office
area we plan to open our library again
on Saturdays, and the service of loaning
cassette tapes. We hope God will provide
us with more volunteers.
Mid-Autumn Festival we join a gospel street
gala in Roosevelt Park and this year more
than ten churches in China-town are going
to take part in these activities. Don't
miss this chance of spreading the Good
News. Pray for the planning and preparation
of this event.
