Pray for Emerson and Ivy Wu, endorsed development workers, as they make preparations to serve in Macau,

March 14, 2012

Emerson and Ivy Wu have been endorsed by IM to serve as Development Workers in Macau, a special administrative region of China, with the supportive partnership of Evangelize China Fellowship.

For a long time, Macau was known for its gambling casinos. Drug, alcohol and gambling addictions, crime and prostitution were rampant in this region near Hong Kong in which less than 1% of the population is Christian.  However, under the new government, many positive changes are taking place. Better education and social services are two major areas that are creating opportunities for the younger generation. The Wus will strive to bring a new spirit to Macau by serving in outreach to youth and college students and in the orphanage’s after-school program.

They write: We are now in the fund raising process of our preparation before being appointed to Macau.  In addition to seeking speaking opportunities to share our call, we are focusing on studying the Word, meditating and teaching.   Years ago I read a book about God's working with people’s hearts during the time of waiting.  Examples are Moses’ 40 years in exile; David's being in the fields as a shepherd before becoming a king and Jesus’ 40 days in the desert.  Using them as an example, my recent weekly routine is to attend several Bible study groups and feed daily on His word, my spiritual bread.  The Lord is richly blessing me and has enormously touched my heart, molding me for His use.  Each time I am touched by His word, I gratefully pray, “You are the potter, I am the clay. Thank Lord. You are so good to me.”

This year, the subject of study at Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) is the Acts of the Apostles.   A few weeks ago at BSF after my group discussion, the leader prayed for us to continue in daily Bible study and to focus upon the Lord.  Nevertheless, I was still anxious about the vision trip to Macau, February 27 to March 5.  In BSF after the group discussion, we went to the lecture session.  The lecture leader opened his talk with “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent.  For I am with you …” (Acts 18:9-10).  His word strengthened me once more.

We would like to thank for your prayers, financial support, encouragement and especially partnering with us for His Holy work.  Please continue to pray that the Lord prepares our hearts for the vision trip to Macau.

  • Pray for Emerson and Ivy as they build relations with congregations and individuals for prayer and financial support.
  • Pray for God to supply every need for them.
