Happy LUNAR New Year from
Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

“Impossible” Prayers
At our recent mission prayer retreat, we were challenged to bring our impossible prayers – those things that can only be accomplished as our powerful God intervenes. Here are just a few of the things we are praying for as a team. Will you join us?

*For Taiwanese pastors for our three C&MA Mission church plants.
*For Tom and Ah-An to become Christ followers this year.
*For God to provide a suitable church building for the Sihhu Church within two years
*For a healing miracle for a foreign worker in a coma.
*For God to bring in new regular attendees and new baptisms in our church plants.
*For financial provision for a C&MA pastor willing to take on full time leadership of a struggling church.
*For “S”, a church member, to find freedom in Christ.
*For new jobs for foreign workers who will face deportation if something doesn't open up soon.

Closed Doors
Last month we requested prayer for Sally, who was facing a major decision. Thank you for praying! God firmly closed the door to start a business of her own at that time. Since then, Sally has prayed over two other major decisions that she hoped would turn her life around. Each time, God has firmly closed the door. It has been very discouraging to Sally, but we believe in a good God who loves Sally very much and obviously has His own plan. Please pray for Sally to receive God's comfort. Pray that she will continue to trust Him while she waits for His leading.

One of our “impossible” prayers is for Sally's husband, Ah-An's salvation. Yesterday, his nephew Ah-Hong asked us to pray for him – we believe we just saw our Mighty God begin to knock down some “impossibly” big walls!

Thank You for your support through the C&MA Great Commission Fund (GCF)!
Thank you for praying for us, for the Amazing Grace Church plant, and for the working class people in Taiwan who have yet to meet the God who loves them.

Glad to be part of this Christ-Centered, Acts 1:8 Family!
Tim & Penny
