Jana Hoobler, UB missionary in Macau, sent this update on June 30.
- “Our summer children’s classes are off to a great start. Beth Nelson, who volunteered with us last summer, is back again this year and is a huge help with the kids. The classes are almost all full, the kids are adorable, and I’m loving doing lots of teaching. Praise the Lord for the opportunity to influence these children for Him.
- “The adult English Language Program classes for the summer are also coming together well. We’re thankful for the adults we can impact through these classes. I’m teaching a Phonics class for adults. This class will continue until the end of July.
- “On Saturday, July 1, a short-term team from New Covenant Bible Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, will arrive. They’ll be here for two weeks. I can’t wait to see my brother, sister, niece, and nephew who are part of the ten-person team. While the team’s here, they’ll be teaching children’s English classes, leading a street carnival for children in the neighborhood of Living Stone Church, and leading VBS. Pray that God will lead them into relationships where they can have a positive influence in their short time here. Pray that the neighborhood will really see God’s love through the street carnival. Pray that children will clearly understand the gospel through VBS. Pray that many parents will come to the VBS program, so that we can continue to build our relationships with them.”
