A WARM AMAZING GRACE CHURCH CHRISTMAS
“Let’s try something different this time.” Instead of a BIG event, we decided to just focus on friends and family members who have a connection with someone in the church.
We expected about 30 people and ended up with 62, and it seemed as though everyone enjoyed themselves. A Taiwanese Gospel video really seemed to hold everyone’s attention and drive the message home.

Thank you for praying – please continue to pray for Amazing Grace Church members to be salt and light to these individuals.

BIG CHANGES IN 2020
After thirteen years in Taiwan’s Yunlin County planting Amazing Grace Church, the time has come to move on. January 5, 2020 was officially Tim’s last Sunday leading the church plant team. Pastor Amos Li will continue to serve the congregation and lead the church.

13 years ago we came in as strangers knowing no one in this community and we will leave with many friends and a church family. We have celebrated the baptisms of Amy, Lina, SyouFeng, Lwo Jye and others. We’ve watched some people grow in their faith, and others fall away completely. We have laughed and cried in this place. We’ve wanted to quit more than once, but thankfully, God kept us going. We have planted a part of our hearts permanently in this town.
And now it is time to move on – because that’s what C&MA International Workers do --- we establish local bodies of believers that are led by local pastors!

SO, WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE IVERSONS?
Our future plans are clear in some ways and a bit more foggy in others. Penny will continue in her role as Field Director. Tim will continue to give oversight to our new Indonesian outreach initiative in Taiwan. And a new church plant in Tainan is on the horizon. When and exactly where we will move is still a bit uncertain, and how God will lead us to enter and initiate new relationships in a new community in Tainan is yet to be seen. We are seeking His leading.

Please pray for us -- and please continue to pray for the maturing and growth of Amazing Grace Church.

Together let’s expect great things from God in 2020!
Tim & Penny
