November has been a challenging month for me in the process of finding out what God has for me in regards to a church plant.
I taught in a church for 3 to 4 months prior to the conference. To make the long story short, I am not willing to be part of it anymore. I have a couple of families who have come alongside me to start a new work for God. So, I started a Bible study in one of the believer’s houses. We are also visiting those who are sick and trying to comfort them with God’s Word and our presence in their houses.
I never thought that being a pastor was this busy. I think that coordinating with people is a big thing. Everybody has a different mind set and everybody wants to be shown on stage. I am asking God to please help me in this. I am the youngest one here and am not married. I am trying to get everyone on the same page. It is so hard. But when it comes to the Word of God, my team is saying to me ‘You have preached so well, your explanation was so good and understandable.’
The Word of God is the weapon. I treasure your prayers during this church planting journey.
Please continue to pray for me and the ministry I am doing for God. My past experience, since graduating from Bible college, has been so different than this. I use to be a ministry worker at Bible colleges in several different places of the country. My ministry was investing the Word of God into students’ lives, taking care of them while they were sick, and observing them on the campus learning new songs for worship and new languages. But now, I am dealing mostly with elders and with almost all age groups.
Merry Christmas to you all. Someday I want to celebrate our Savior’s birthday with all of you!
