Wedding Bells in China!

After 44 years alone the Lord has answered our brother David's prayer and joined him to Elizabeth on March 28th in Beijing. David is our top Chinese coworker and Elizabeth will now join our team. She is a wonderful young lady who loves the Lord and has pretty good English skills. There were over 300 in attendance at the wedding, a full choir, unbelievable decorations and a wonderful spirit. I did the ceremony and was able to share the gospel with many there.

I know that many of you have been praying for David for a long time, thank you... God has certainly answered our prayers! Please keep praying for them as they make the adjustments to married life.

Please continue to pray for our work in china. The governments has been cracking down pretty hard lately and it is a major concern for us, it seems to be getting more difficult for the believers there. but as they say: "The church in china is like bamboo, you chop it down and it grows back stronger and taller!!!"
