Jana Hoobler, with the English Language Program in Macau, sent this update on May 30:
- Some of the women at Living Stone Church started a women’s prayer meeting on Wednesday nights. This group of about ten women is becoming a special support group and circle of friendship for me. I’m thankful for the ways the church is maturing. Last Sunday morning I was touched as I sat and worshiped while a young couple in the church led worship and played the piano, a teenager played the guitar, and Ally played the violin. It’s not just staff leading everything anymore, and that’s great. (Remember: our job is to work ourselves out of a job.)
- We’re currently registering students for our summer classes for both children and adults. Although our staff is limited this summer, I’ve tried to offer classes that will allow students from last summer to come back this summer. It’s been good to see many of the parents I know coming to register their children. Pray that God will bring just the right children this summer, and for His guidance in the best ways to help them spiritually. Each summer is the key for establishing a group of children to follow up with throughout the school year.
- This Sunday we’re having an English Language Program Sunday at Living Stone Church. We’ve invited all of our adult English students to attend the worship service. Most of them are not Christians. Pray that many of them will come and that they’ll be touched by the warm fellowship and the message that morning.
- Pray for Winnie and Fanny, two ELP students who’ve been coming to a Bible study I lead each week for non-believers. Neither of them know much of anything about God or the Bible. Pray that God will give them understanding and that their hearts will be open to Him.
