Here we are in the month of March 2016. As for us – the Gospel ministry, it is grace and not something we take granted for when we are still in peace and alive! Hence, it is impossible to count the grace of God one by one and too many things to give thanks to the Lord!
There was a deep impression in 2015 Christmas Gospel Concerts as there were many believers following the trend of the world to travel around. It recalls Raymond’s memory of a song “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”, it is a song saying of coming home for Christmas to count the grace of God. More importantly, it is right and proper for us to share the Gospel, inviting our friends and relatives to the church in this season of peace that they may receive the salvation joyfully! Unfortunately, many believers diligently arrange time for their travels and ignore the to arrange time for the loved ones’ salvation. May the Lord have mercy, awaken the souls of brothers and sisters so that in 2016 they can make an extra effort!
At the same time, we discovered that those brothers and sisters who are in the middle class or below giving much effort and thinking in this area. Perhaps they determined that they had no opportunities to travel and put all the efforts in the Gospel work?! There were 3 Gospel Concerts which left our team a strong impression. The churches turned the Christmas celebration into the Gospel sharing opportunity. Through their cares, prayers, communication, knowing friends’ need, they build a strong trust with them. Hence, many friends and relatives, with the touch of the Lord, coming out to respond to the Salvation in this season filled with love! Thank the Lord for his grace and the passion of all brothers and sisters!
In Christmas season, many big churches had feasts and tons of celebration programs. As for those small churches, their finance does not allow them to invite special team to their churches for evangelism. Therefore, we arranged few slots to bless the small churches, the smallest scale is only 10 over people. The Lord’s love is for the noble and lowly, Gospel is the same. We went with a simple heart. Something never forget is your love. For your selfless generosity which support our ministry, that we may share the Gospel without worries! Thank you for your love offering to complete the good works!
The last day of 2015, we successfully published a single [Sewarna Sekeluarga]. This was the first time we joined our Malay and Indian friends to dedicate of best for the country through this song. This is a song which responded to the social needs, giving positive message and harmony. In the future, we will represent Christians to produce more songs and programs to express the care and love for this society. All for the glory of God and serving man. Hallelujah!
This year, besides sharing the Gospel via Sing and Share Gospel Concerts, we will produce 2 Gospel tools [Live Recording DVD]. In addition, we have develop new field [Children Animation Products]. We have 2 directions for this. One, through animation and singing, children will know more about Bible Characters. Second, short animation with singing which passes down the Chinese good culture and Christian values to children to build up their character and souls. This product and program will be helpful for Sunday school program. Animation takes a lot of effort, time, manpower and expenses. May brothers and sisters foresee the importance of next generation, to be our help in different areas (manpower, equipment) to motivate us.
In addition to children, youth is also one of our focus. This year, we are going to accomplish the album of [Amazing Signature Voice], the singers are from different backgrounds, ages, churches. An album to promote love, singing out the family love, friendship, social careness, motivating the weak. This is yet another challenge – the attitude and patience of youngster, time arrangement as well as production cost. This new group is another batch of singers, the first batch gave up because they were unable to breakthrough, changes and taking the responsibility. May you guys pray for them and pray for us. May these children going into a matured mind, to be a vessel of the Lord, shining and edify more youngsters who are weak!
We are thankful to the Lord for giving us talent in sound recording and video recording production that we may plan and produce content of program which suits this generation needs. Hence, we will have a new module called [Together we build] Live pre-recording internet program. From time to time, there will be new song with messages with today’s context to strengthen the faith of young believer in a simple and relaxing way. This will be a real key to activate the effectiveness of our belief in real life. This module will need equipments for video recording, lighting and others.
Web radio [Radiant Station] is progressively raise up new DJs. This year, we are going to have a new module which is a Cantonese program called [Straight Talk]. Why Cantonese? We discovered that this language is used by major radio during the morning working hour and knock off hours in the evening. This tells us that Cantonese does bring certain strong impact! If you know some brothers and sisters who is good in DJ field, why not invite them to approach us at email@example.com .
Finally, the long awaited production that kept in both Raymond and wife’s heart – Cleft Baby Jaemon’s testimony publication. Besides testifying the Lord’s work in this book, the process of treatment and surgery will be recorded as well. This publication has 3 purposes. Firstly, to edify the believers’ faith to the Lord. Secondly, to let non-believer experience the Lord’s faithfulness and greatness. Thirdly, to let cleft baby’s parents understand more on the treatment and surgery process and how husband and wife work together effectively to help the baby growing strong in both spirit, soul and body.
Please pray for us, may the Lord protect our heart (pure and unite). May the Lord touches more brothers and sisters to help, bless, and motivate our plans (manpower, resources, fees). May the Lord bless whatever plan we have in hand, pleasing his heart, glorifying his name and serving man!
Thank you once again for your bountiful love!
The Lord’s servant, Raymond and the team
