Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

That’s what it felt like this morning. With 15 minutes until the start of our morning service, boxes of fire crackers were being lined up in multiple rows in preparation for welcoming a local god. Interestingly, it was all set up directly across from the church, not down the street – as though a challenge were being made. As the god parade passed, our small gathering of believers sang at the top of our voices over the noise of the explosions –

“Holy, Holy, Holy,
Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in pow'r, in love, and purity.”

In Taiwan’s rural working class communities, the darkness is real and the battle is strong. We watch in sadness as even believers struggle to gain victory against the darkness in their homes, and the darkness from their past. Please pray for them, and pray for us, that we would continue to cling to our Victorious Savior who has overcome the world and all its darkness!

This week, our Taiwan C&MA IW team will be gathering for Team Forum. This is a time of spiritual retreat as well as Team discussion and strategizing. Please pray for us, that we would clearly hear and respond to all that God has for us, that our relationships would grow in love and in unity, and that we would be refreshed.

Thank you for standing with us in the battle!
Thankful to be a part of this Christ-centered, Acts 1:8 family!
Tim & Penny

Thank you for faithfully upholding us in prayer. We NEED it!
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” 1 John 5:14 (NIV)

Pray for God’s provision for leadership of the church. We go on home assignment in 2018.

Pray for a number of struggling believers in our small church plant - from emotional and mental illness, to financial troubles - many are being tested in their faith. Pray that they would grow in their walk with Christ through the challenges.

Pray for breakthrough in our community - that Christ will push back the darkness, and hearts will open to Him.

Please join us in asking God for MUCH fruit in Taiwan - fruit that will last!
