grace! Since the last time you heard from me, the Mongkok Church has baptised nine people and there are two or three waiting to make up their minds. One of those baptised is a young man from China. The church needed some building work done and he was one of the workers who performed the task. During last summer, three of our youth de cided to spend the summer at the church, studying their Bibles, praying, and planning future youth activities. During a work break Chan Kwok Leung asked one of the youth about what she was reading. This led to a brief discussion and presentation of the Gospel. Chan was definitely interested, but still

Last fall I taught a class on Calvinism and Daniel followed this terra with Origin of Denominations and PostCaptivity Literature. This sumcier I will be teaching classes on Ecclesiastes, Proverbs, and Salvation Theology. Yuk Chi will also be teaching a class (or two) in Mandarin. Last August we graduated our 2nd & 3rd degree students, Kan Cheong Ying and Pak Lai Yee (Winny), who is a member at the (former ly) Mei Foo Christian Church. Throughout her student days, she has been very active in evangelizing areas to the north of us and inspiring and encouraging many others to do likewise. She is presently working with a

Through word of mouth and a reputation for persistance in problem solving, I am now
on retainer with two small firms in Hong

Kong. Whether I do anything or not, each month my mission finances are supplemented by US$130, In addition, many small, short
term projects are sent my way providing even more unplanned income, not to mention a
chance to meet and influence some people I would not normally have access to. As a result of the Malaysian trip last summer, I added several more searching ques tions to my study on the purpose of Baptism. This has nowfinallybeen translated into

Due to increased responsibilities, many of the projects mentioned in my last letter have been on hold for awhile. One may have even been cancelled. WordPerfect, a major wordprocessing program, has just released a
Chinese version at a much reduced introduc

tory price. This is a very nifty program, coming with three vector Chinese fonts. This means that no matter how big you print a Chinese character (i.e. for emphasis or for announcements) a curved stroke still looks curved instead of like a giant stair steps. It can also easily convert Tradi tional characters to Simplified, which is

Yuk Chi (Light) has now graduated from Hong Kong Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity in Practical Theology. She plans on completing a unit of C.P.E. training this summer. Plans beyond that must wait on our furlough this fall. She hopes to get into China more frequently than has been possible the past three years. We are also looking at a possible opportunity north of Shen Zhen across the border, but certain complications make it look iffy. There is also a possible, regular preaching opportun ity available near Shen Zhen University that I am considering. On September 15, 1993, a new life came

This has been a real banner year in of your giving! May Jesus take note and mark it down in your favor for future reference! You gave $17,435 and we spent $15,453. That includes $900 for the Bible College, $1000 for the wedding, and $3250 for the delivery of Aletheia. Additional income amounted to $362 Stateside, and $842 from tentmaking projects. Light also re ceived about $583 a month in donations while she was in school (which has now ended). Thank you very very very much! May God multiply it back to you in many ways!
