Greg and I serve in a Chinese American church – practically speaking this means there is a Chinese congregation (primarily either older folks or newly immigrated people) and there is an English congregation (primarily younger individuals who have grown up in America). The Chinese congregation has been without a pastor for several years, and last Sunday the majority of our church members voted for our English Pastor to no longer serve at our church. Because of this decision, a number of the English congregation members are leaving our church.
Greg and I are sad, scared, angry, and just confused. We were so excited when we came to LIALC three shorts months ago. We were full of hope about our potential ministry here, and now are struggling with how to deal with this.
Please pray for us to have wisdom, direction, and peace. Please pray for our church and the leadership. Please pray for our youth group. Please pray for God to guide us during these hard times.
