Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Tim and Penny Iverson - Reaching out to working class Taiwanese

January is a time when we all wonder what the new year will bring, and those thoughts are on our minds too.

We have passed the half-way point of our home assignment year, and have lots of questions as we think about our return to Taiwan.

Here’s how you can pray with us regarding our return to Taiwan:
*Our seminary intern at Amazing Grace Church, Amos Li will graduate in June. Please join with us in praying that he will remain on as the full time pastor of the church.
*With Amos as pastor, our role at the church will most certainly change. Please pray for clear leading as we return to Yuanchang in June. We want the church to look to their pastor!
*Perhaps in 2019 we will begin work in a new church planting location in Taiwan. Again, please pray for clear leading for us and our Team in Taiwan!
*We are seeing a strong potential for a couple new workers joining our Taiwan Team in 2019—one of them from the Indonesian C&MA! We hope to share more news on this soon, but please be praying for new workers.

Coming Up —-
*Monday (1/14— 2/3)) we continue our tour in the Spanish Eastern District. In New York, we will be speaking at churches in Morris Park, Jennings, White Plains, Manhattan and Randolph, NJ. Please pray for God’s anointing on our ministry and for responsive hearts.
*We had an abnormal number of colds during the past few months. Please pray for protection over our health, especially when we are away from home.

Happy Anniversary!
Last week (January 8th) marked the 28th anniversary of our first arrival in Taiwan! Thinking back over those years we want to say THANK YOU to our C&MA family who makes it possible for us and other International Workers to serve around the world. Thank you for sending and supporting us through giving to the C&MA Great Commission Fund. We continue to need your support. You can GIVE to our support online or through your local C&MA church.

Thank you too for your faithfulness in praying for us and for Taiwan! We are so glad to have you partnering with us!

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

Praise God that we enjoyed some very special times with our all our kids over Christmas. Please pray for our grown children - that there would be spiritual breakthrough in each of their lives. Pray for significant conversations during this HA year.

Pray for us during this home assignment year. Pray that God will use us in each of the churches where we are sharing. Pray too that we will continue to be light for Him in our neighborhood in Rochester, Minnesota and with unsaved family members.

Continue to pray for Amos Li, the Taiwan C&MA Bible College study who is serving at Amazing Grace Church. Pray that Amos will have strength to complete his studies well, and that he will have wisdom in leading the church.

Pray for Amos - that God would clearly lead him. We anticipate Amos becoming the full-time pastor of Amazing Grace Church after his graduation in June, pray that if this is God's will, He would confirm it.

Pray that God would lead us and the Taiwan Team over the next few months, in having clarity regarding our ministry roles when we return to Taiwan in June.

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