Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

"Lean not on your own understanding." These words from Proverbs 3:5 certainly ring true for us these days. After a very busy Home Assignment we arrived back in Taiwan on June 29th to find some things different than what we had imagined. We don't always understand the “whys”, but we are not leaning on our own understanding.

As many of you know we have two new International Workers coming to join our team, Chhon Kojap from the US and Ligit, coming to join us from Indonesia. There have been holdups with both of their visas, so they have yet to arrive. Please be in prayer for these two new teammates.

Amazing Grace Church had been under the direction of Amos Li, our student intern, while we were on Home Assignment and he has stayed on as pastor after his graduation in June. We are grateful for him and his ministry here. Pray for God’s anointing on Amos’ ministry.

Rain. And lots of it! Our farmers here are suffering financially as a result. Please pray for the rains to stop for a while.

Other church members have gone through troubles recently. JinHou has had physical difficulties and is undergoing a crisis of faith. Jeanne and Hera, two of our Indonesian friends, have ceased coming to church. And Da Ren and his wife Yi Sywan are two of the farmers mentioned above. Please ask God to meet these people in their areas of need and draw them into a deeper relationship with Him.

It was so great to reconnect with friends on tour, and make many new friends. Thank you for your support in prayer, encouragement, and financially. Please remember to keep giving to the Great Commission Fund of the C&MA, and if the Lord leads, please also consider contributing to us more directly via the Iverson Work Special Fund.

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

Praise God for what He is doing in Amazing Grace Church. Please join with us in praying that God would grow this church in both depth of their walk with Jesus and also in numbers as more people come to Christ.

Please pray for the visas to come through for our two new International Workers. Pray also that God would be using this time to prepare both Chhon and Ligit for their transition to life in Taiwan.

Please pray for us as our Team will be having a Strategic Review this year at the end of October. Pray that in these weeks leading up to the Strategic Review (SR), God will lead us as a Team to more fully know our next steps in ministry.

Pray as our Taiwan Team begins research for a new church plant in Tainan. Ask God to open doors and clearly lead us to know the area of Tainan in which to begin ministry. Pray that He will bring together a church plant team of partnering Taiwanese churches to pray with us and begin outreach into the new area.

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