Last weekend, we had an Evangelical retreat! There were about 15 non-Christian students who joined us at the Fin Retreat (It is finished Retreat) . We shared the gospel with them by using the last 7 words on the cross that Jesus said," It is finished" . What Jesus has done on the cross for human sinners, including myself, is finished on the cross. This good news reminds me again that I am A needy sinner. I am so thankful for this good news!

In the last newsletter, I mentioned to you about how tried and emotional I was during the past month. Right now I feel better after having good time with God and rest from being sick. One thing that I have learned from God is in Philippians 3:7-9:
"But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith."
I have a great time meditate on this truth. I have more freedom in living everyday to know God more to live with Him is worth more than anything. Please for me that I will have a great time with Him everyday.
As I am writing this newsletter, I just received news that one of the students who has been studying the Bible with Liew (a Christian student from our ministry) just professed his faith in Christ ! Praise God!
