“RUN IN SUCH A WAY AS TO GET THE PRIZE”

“I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel that I may share in its blessings. Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” (1 Corinthians 9:22-27)

Embarking on Our Journey in Yilan

We’ve had a very good furlough year. Soo has gone back to Taiwan and I, Hannah, will return to the field on 8/30/2018. Two key words of the past one year are “Parents and Children” and “Churches”. We are so grateful for the time we could live with our two children and the time we could feel reconnected with our parents during the past year. God has also amazed us in showing the homeland churches’ love and support for us which we’ve received during the tour. Especially I can’t ever forget how I felt when the church members sincerely prayed for our family and overseas ministry. God has lavished us with plenty of His blessings such as these. And now we are full of anticipation for experiencing how God will continue to “run” with us as we’re facing another term of serving Him for Taiwanese’s salvation. Often we don’t know how this mission, God has commissioned us, can take place in reality. But for now, we know we must cultivate our daily spiritual habits and lifestyles to make regular contacts with the community people. Then with such frame of cultivated habits, we can rely on God’s leading and will see His wondrous work in finding Christ’s disciples in Yilan where we are planting a church. Therefore, we will specifically commit ourselves to do “3-3 Daily Habits” together. In order to apply the word “Run in such a way as to get the prize” (1 Corinthians 9:24) in our mission work, as I am resuming this new term I’ve adopted to join Soo who’s been already doing “3-3 Daily Habits” for long. Since I am a Christ’s disciple, I will cultivate myself in praying to God 3 times a day and helping others in the community in any approach 3 times a day as my daily goal. And both Soo and I are sure we will be walking closely with God when we cultivate this “3-3 Daily Habits” and His glory will be revealed through being able to form an evangelism/disciples-making small group at our home in Yilan near future. Please pray for our daily victory as we “run in such a way” to get a prize of the home small group soon.

Worshipping God and Disciples-Making

One of efforts of disciples-making has begun by preparing for Fall Session of the “Two-Wings” Disciples-making class at Qidu Church. Pastor Lin at the church has already invited us to teach the last two parts of the church’s disciples training classes starting September and we are quite excited about it because we’ll empahasize about the notion of Christians who regenerate other Christ’s disciples. (Teaching guide shown above) May the Holy Spirit keep inspiring those at Qidu Church to continue living their lives as God’s “Peculiar People” in Taiwan.
