November update

How is my life?

Psalm 32: 8 “I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you ” And Psalm 86 : 10-11 “ For you are Great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God . Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart that I may fear your name ”

These scriptures explain how my life is and what I have been learning. Recently, I have read a book about the Character of God. He alone is God just continues to impact my heart - walking with Him and helping student to know Him are very difficult without truth that God reveals to us from His word. I mean, it is impossible to know Him if God does not allow us to know himself. Praise and thank God for the grace He has shown us!!!

How is ministry?

There is sad news and good news. Since August, Honey and I have had the chance to share the gospel and have bible study with many girls. God has been working in 5 girls, leading them to know Him. Praise God for what He has done! But at this time, one of my disciples (Josh) is struggling to commit to bible study due to family pressure. When her family found out about her interest in God, they became angry about her believing in Christ. Because she does not want to have conflict with her family, she will not commit to study the Bible with me but says she still believes in God , Please be Praying for her.

How is this semester? And Please be praying for

1) Leader group bible study: we have 5 girls who are our keys students (Am, Kade, Ice, Kana and Nam). We have the desire to help them learn how to be leaders - in the concept of both leading themselves and leading others spiritually. Please pray for them, specifically that God will give them a heart desire to be leaders in His way, that they will grow up in this area.

2) Body of Christ trip on November 28th: focusing on building the body of Christ. We have 13 Christian students and are longing to help 5 key students to respond to and lead this activity. Please pray for us from these scriptures: John 17:20-21 “ My prayer is not for them alone. I pray for those who believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you . May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. ”

3) CCP team is coming November 25th: there are 9 of them from Australia, and they will stay here for 2 months. Please pray for us to reach students at NEU so they might know God.

4) Please pray for Honey, my teammate and my roommate: She has had LUPUS for years and, it's been getting worse since last month. Now, she needs to take 10 pills a day, and those pills have such a negative side effect because they contain steroids in them.

Thank you for your prayers and support. When you think of me, please be praying for me through those scriptures at the beginning of this page.
Love in Christ

“A nationalized Laborer Producing Movement ”

Dear Friends :) It’s been 2 months since the Thai Summer Project . After the TSP, the students had a summer break and all of the Staff a two week long retreat focused on being renewed, refreshed, refocused and revived. I had a very good time with the staff team during that time. While studying the Bible over the past two months, God has taught me that He calls us to be loved by Him and that those who trust in Him will never be disappointed. It hit my heart how important I am in God’s heart. I have learned to trust Him, not my job or people in my life (Jeremiah 17:7-8).

The new school year for 2011 begins this week. The Cross Cultural Project, a team of college students Campus outreach Lexington, arrived here on June 3rd. There are 8 students and 2 staff to “carry on” Jesus at NEU (“Carry on” is their theme this summer ) . The stage of ministry that I am in is very challenging because I am splitting my time between establishing my disciples (50%), equipping my disciples (20%), and evangelizing (30%). Please join me in praying:

1) For God’s wisdom and strength to serve Him for the purpose of leading students to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
2) That God would allow me to help these students grow in their faith and understanding of the Gospel. ( Students - Am , Kade , Ice, Noon , Josh and Omm)
3) That the students and I would walk with God daily.

Please take time to pray for these three things right now. I really need your prayers!

Friends, thank you for your prayers and support!

In Christ

TSP 2011 Update

I am very thankful for the time before the TSP. -We raised money for the TSP (a 3 week retreat called Thai Summer Project) by selling second hand things at a Lake as well as baking cookies and cake to sell around campus. -We did a Bible study and invited students to join our summer project to learn about God Who He is. I am very thankful for the Thai Summer Project in Pattaya Thailand . There were about 70 students and staff from KKU and NEU. There was 1 guy, Tdong, and 10 girls from NEU (9 Christians and 1 non-Christian). Most of my disciples, when I asked them what they learned at TSP, answered that they have learned how to surrender to God and have more faith in Him. One girl decided to give up her Big Sin that she could not give up this past year. She said that if she walks in that way she will not grow and she wants to grow and for God help her to fight sin. God amazingly led 9 students to know Him at TSP including one girl (Josh ) from NEU who just wanted to go because she wanted to see the beach. She professed her faith in Christ in an amazing way. She told me one night that she wanted to know God. In my mind I thought there was NO WAY and that she was just kidding me so I did not really pay attention to her. I told her how to pray on her own because I was so tired from a stomach problem, but she did not pray. I told Honey that Josh wanted to know God and Honey asked her questions to see if she understood the Gospel. She said that she really understood the Gospel and that she wanted to know Christ. So Honey led her to pray that night. After the TSP, she went home and showed respect to her parents by telling them politely that she became a Christian and they responded to her well. God has done great things at the TSP. He is working in students’ lives. He taught me about surrendering before Him through the TSP. When we give our heart to God, we will see blessings from Him. Thank you for your prayers and support. Glory to God, Sano
