Dear family in Christ
We give thanks to God for a fruitful and blessed Abba English camp. Praise the Lord for the seed of the gospel planted in the lives of these precious souls from Vietnam. 18 campers responded to the altar call at the Good News sharing. Three said “Yes” to believe and trust in Jesus. Fifteen wanted to know more about Jesus Christ. We had good follow-up conversations in several small groups. Let us pray for many to experience the joy of God’s salvation.
Appreciative grateful thanks to many church members and staff who served purposefully and joyfully at this Abba camp: Planning committee members, Program Group leaders, Games leaders, Logistics team helpers, English lesson teachers and Homestay host families. On behalf of deanery of Vietnam, thank you everyone for your ministry partnership in the gospel in committed action, good encouragement and fervent prayers.
This weekend, our church mission team of 18 members (mainly choir members) are at Ho Chi Minh (19-24 June). Their presence and ministry is a tremendous encouragement and blessing to Vietnam deanery’s Church of Christ of our Hope and to Rev Hong Chi and his church leaders. May this mission trip stir up faithful commitment to the Lord in missions and be life-transforming in the life of each mission team member.
Praise the Lord for House of Joy’s “Parents Appreciation Lunch” this coming Saturday 29 June. It is a wonderful opportunity to thank and appreciate our parents for their love, guidance and sacrifice. We pray for God’s continual blessings upon our parents and for them to know, believe and trust in Jesus Christ in the depths of their heart and receive the gift of eternal life by the grace and mercy of God.
