Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

2018—2019 HOME ASSIGNMENT YEAR IN REVIEW:
It is hard to believe almost a year has passed since we left Taiwan. Here are some highlights of our year and things for which we praise God:

*Time spent with our family and friends! We have loved living near our son David and Meghan and Otto, and also having some time with Julie and Jake, and Daniel and Jess, as well as a little time with extended family!

*Time spent with our C&MA family! We crisscrossed the US, visiting churches in NY, NJ, CA, HI, SD, WV and all over MN. (We also squeezed in some time in UT with our son, and FL with Tim’s mom!)

*We bought a home in Rochester, MN last summer, and have spent the year making repairs and fixing it up. Praise God that we have renters moving in on July 1st. Pray that this young family would come to know Christ’s presence in this home!

MOVING FORWARD: On Tuesday we leave MN and head to UT for a brief visit with Daniel and Jess before flying to Taiwan on Friday, June 28th. It will be a three year term for us. Pray for smooth travel and a good re-adjustment.

TAIWAN MINISTRY & PRAYER NEEDS:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

We’re so glad God knows His plans for us, because we certainly don’t know everything up ahead! But we do know a few of the next steps.

We will return to the Amazing Grace Church plant where Tim will be the mentoring pastor for our NEW PASTOR Amos Li. Please pray for God’s clear leading in Tim’s role at the church. Pray that the church will grow in maturity and depth and numbers. We are specifically asking that the church will grow to 25 baptized members, be able to financially support their pastor fully, and have a leadership team of at least 5 members.

Pray for Penny as she once again steps into the role of Taiwan Team Leader, giving direction and leadership to our Taiwan “aXcess” Team.

This summer, our Team will welcome new International Workers, Chhon Kojap from the US, and Indonesian partner, Ligit. Please pray for their visa processes to go smoothly, and for a good adjustment to their new home.

Pray for God’s powerful working in Taiwan, and that we, as a Team will be prepared for all that God is doing. Pray that we will keep in step with the Holy Spirit, and keep our eyes fixed on Jesus.

Thank you for praying and giving to the C&MA Great Commission Fund (GCF) making it possible for us to resume our ministry in Taiwan! If you want to give toward our financial support, you may give through this website.

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