2009 January Prayer Guides

the Lee family and ministry
Cuernavaca, Morelos

Happy New Year! Have you set new life or ministry challenges for 2009? According to the Chinese calendar, 2009 is the year of Ox, and general people born in any year of Ox (every 12 year cycle) are dependable, calm, methodical, patient, hardworking, ambitious, conventional, steady, modest, logical, resolute, and tenacious. Can be stubborn, narrow-minded, materialistic, rigid, or demanding. Interesting, isnít it? Naomi was born 12 years ago, a year of Ox; and we see many of these characteristics in her, though we donít believe in much of these.

Abe is with the family. During the Christmas week, we enjoyed a blessed and wonderful musical performance at our home church, All Nations Church, which re-ignited the church for an active North Korea Missions involvement.

PRAY REQUESTS:
1. 1/4... Abeís birthday. He will be a year younger.

2. 1/12Ė2/9... Abe will be in Michigan for home service consultation and church visitations.

3. 1/19... Nathanís birthday. Please bless him with your prayer. Thanks.

4. 1/23-24... Inner Healing Seminar (ANCís Ministry) in Ciudad Juarez. Elaine plans to be at the seminar to assist with translation. Weíve invited some church leaders (Ricardo Aquino and Jose Ocampo and their wives) from Cuernavaca to participate in the seminar. Please pray for their safe travel. We plan to implant this ministry with them. (FYI: ANC has been short of human resource in doing Mexico missions. So they have approached us for a number of activities, called Vision 800, from Tijuana to Cd. Juarez. It offers a lot to learn, so we may get involved a little.)

5. Please continue to pray for TEE center in Cuernavaca (16 students), AMICH (30 future missionaries), Chiapas Bible Institutes (25 students), Reformed Theological Seminary in Mexico City (15 students), and 6 churches in Emmanuel presbytery.

6. Our dearest friend (ANC) extended an invitation for us to get involved in a Spanish-speaking rehab center in town. We committed to support the center with an hour Bible Study (every Friday). Abe is using One-to-One discipleship material.

7. We continue with the vehicle fundraising to replace our well used SUV for a semi-new vehicle during our home service (Dec. 2008 Ė June 2009). We are so thankful to those who have already sent in their wholehearted offerings. We are wordless for your sacrifices regardless this long economic crisis. We give thank you on behalf of our generous God. Please continue to pray for the remaining fund onto its completion (about $5000). Should you have any questions regarding the fundraising, please contact us at chiapslee@gmail.com or call 626-222-1882 (Elaineís cell).

PRAY for ELAINEís MINISTRY:

1. Elaine leads a prayer meeting at NCA (nananaís school) every Thursday morning. Only a handful people are joining the meeting, but we see Godís greatness through prayers.

2. Following prayer meeting, she also leads a Coffee break Bible study. Please pray for her as she prepares and leads the Bible study. They are studying the book of Exodus.

3. One to One discipleship training with Mrs. Chang is going well.

In the name of our Lord, we would like to say THANK YOU for all of your prayer and generous givings. For 2009, this is a challenge, at least for our family: Let Jesus give the first steps in everything throughout the year 2009? Let Him be the priority in life and in ministry Ö Have a blessed year!

Blessings from the NANANA family.
