Dear friends and supporters,
Thank you for being our co-workers by means of prayer and giving.
After talking with our Travel Documents Service representative, Deb and I are confident we will soon be leaving for Beijing. We were assured our visas are forth coming. In our representative’s words, “I have never seen a request like yours denied.” On the basis of this additional information, today, Deb and I purchased our tickets to Beijing. Our flight will leave on May 13, we will return May 30. Our need is approximately $6,500, of which over $5,000 has already been given. If you would like to become a financial partner for this trip, please send a gift to our PASSAGE account at Baptist Mid-Missions.
Over the years, Deb and I have hosted hundreds of Chinese acquaintances in our home. Many of these remain our friends. We are looking forward to seeing some of these in China, and helping them with their next step of discipleship. We are also eagerly anticipating experiencing China, and perhaps learning a bit more about a people we have come to love.
Recently, I met with a Pastor in China by means of video conferencing. He observed, “You are a servant to the Chinese people for Christ sake.” Deb and I have never quite looked at things in this way. But if so, What an honor! For you also
If you are interested in our financial ministry needs, you can visit our Supporters Website where you will find more information than you may have ever wanted.
We love you,
Bill and Deb
