Michael and Christina Chang

Prayer Letter/Ministry Update

1. My national colleague Miguel Macchiu has been taking over the day-to-day administrative responsibilities at the San Borja Chinese Alliance Church.

2. In April I accepted the invitation by the leadership of LED (Lima District of the Peruvian C&MA) to assist in the "re-start" effort of the Chinese ministries of the Pueblo Libre CAC. In March Cesar Arrunategui was appointed by LED to the Pueblo Libre CAC to replace Juan Puentes. I'm in an advisory role to Cesar.

3. Paul Tsang felt the call by God and came to serve at the Pueblo Libre CAC for 2 months, June-August. Paul is an Elder at the San Fernando Valley Alliance Church in California. Paul came at the right time and he is a perfect fit for the situation and need in Pueblo Libre where the Chinese speakers have been longing for a Chinese pastor. The church experienced a new breakthrough. Now they have separate Chinese and Spanish services. Once a month the two congregations will join together to celebrate the Holy Communion.

4. Christina returned to Lima on 7/14 after 3 1/2 months leave of absence. Christina was in Boston helping out our daughter with the birth of her second baby. Between the 3-months for home-assignment and the leave of absence, Christina exceeded the 183-days limit imposed by the Peruvian immigration law. She is on a tourist visa and will need to reapply for her resident visa.

5. I plan to make a vision trip to Santa Cruz Bolivia in September (9-16). I'll be visiting the Chinese believers and to assess the situation of the Chinese immigrants in that city.
