Mission Bite #142: Partner, Engage, and Learn Together

In April, we were able to host a few people from one of our Encourager Churches, First Baptist Church of Austin, Texas. They came for an exposure/encourage trip to learn more about our work here and encourage and minister to us.

It was wonderful getting to share about this place with our friends from First Austin. There is something so special about sharing all the things we love about Chinese life and culture with others. We feel called here, and opportunities to introduce our life and calling to our partners are affirming.

We spent the week having meals with some of our local Chinese fellowship friends and talking about how our group here can be connected with the folks at First Austin. It is neat when, not only does our Encourager Church get involved with our Chinese fellowship, but that our Chinese fellowship can encourage and share with our Encourager Church.

We, as Americans, can easily feel that we have a lot to give, but we also can learn so much from our Chinese brothers and sisters. It is amazing to see how God creates Beloved Community around the globe. We are so thankful to be connected to our Encourager Church and hope to continue to find ways to partner, engage, and learn together.
