David and Julie are actively involved in teaching English to Asians in and around Chapel Hill. Several undergrads studying Mandarin Chinese are involved and have brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to our effort. One will spend 6 months developing her language skills and bond to the culture overseas. David, as a painter, also has several unusual opportunities to invest in redemptive relationships.
Focus Points/Highlights of Ministry:
- Coordinating an English class for Asians
- They use relevant topics to stimulate discussions.
- Class size has grown recently–continually have new Visiting Scholars from UNC-Chapel Hill/Duke attend
- Pray for depth for we the teachers-that our roots will grow deep in Christ.
- Pray for more English teachers who have Friday nights available–when the Chinese Fellowship meets.
- Seekers would come forth who are truly desiring to know Christ & others would embrace HIM before returning home.
- The Chinese Fellowship (of which we’re a part) would grow in becoming more like Christ and also in their love for each other.
