The Church Assembly in Dallas

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

We weren’t entirely sure what to expect when we arrived at house where the church met. We knew the services were held mainly in Mandarin Chinese and that M Wang would translate for us. (more…)

Meeting the Wangs

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

We finally were able to meet with the Wangs, the Christian family we’ve been in contact with lately. Their house brought me memories of some of my childhood friends; as soon as the door was opened we were perfumed in Asian spices. They fed us rice, beef, corn and cantaloupe.

It was so nice to fellowship with their family. The wife, M, played with Abigail while Brandon and I spoke with her husband E and their two sons. E has a great zeal for the church, the Lord and His Word. We stayed almost four hours and discussed the state of the church, evangelism opportunities, and persecution in China.

We left looking forward to seeing them for church in the morning.

Journal Begins

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

Today I began my journal. I wrote the back-story today, as well as the events from yesterday. I do not know how the Lord will move in our lives at this point, but chronicling it will help me to remember the good he has done for me.

Today, Lord willing, Brandon will be calling a Christian family he spoke with a few weeks ago about meeting this weekend. They belong to a home church nearby that we would like to learn more about.
