Our Mission

To mobilize the congregation by teaching that everyone has a part of missions (whether as senders or goers) and to help congregation understand that it's not just about serving God, but seeing God at work.
 
Our Goals

A.  Educate the congregation on God's global missions
B.  Encourage congregation to attend conferences to understand this
C.  Send people on missions and support them financially and through prayer

World Mission
 
We support missionaries who serve in different Asian countries in a variety of ministries and those locally who do God's work.  Below are two missionaries our church supports:

We are currently supporting the following missionaries:

Randy and Michelle

Randy and Michelle are in Chiang Mai, Thailand ministering to children whose parents are missionaries from various countries who come to Thailand to spread the gospel.  They work through an organization called SIM, Serving in Mission, which has over 1,400 missionaries throughout over 40 countries.  Randy and Michelle are both public school teachers, so they have a special gift working with children.  They will be returning to the United States this summer for a short break and are interested in returning for another stint.  While they are back, we will plan to have them speak to our congregation about their experiences.

Here is our newsletter 
for October of 2015.  May God bless you as you serve Him faithfully.

Pastor Vicky

In January I shall make a trip to Phnom Penh, Cambodia again. I have been doing that for four years now. Some of you may have heard how I with some women ministers started Fullness in Christ Fellowship (FiCF, 基督豐榮團契).  In 2010 in response to a strong urging from God to help the girls in Cambodia from being victimized by human traffickers, we started a home for girls.  Our works help the girls on restoration, rebuilding and reintegration into the society.  We receive girls who have been sexually abused. Most of them come from poor families in the villages.  You can read about our ministry from our website : http://ficfellowship.org/PleromaHome-e.html

The Pleroma Home for Girls has entered a stable stage, with a U.S. trained social worker who is a Cambodian, and locally trained counselors as well as a teacher and a few dorm mothers.  It is amazing to watch how God has carried us this far. Our hearts are touched by volunteers from the U.S., Hong Kong and Taiwan, who came in to show their love and care for these girls, using their expertise in play therapy, music, sex education, craft, sewing, and many other ways. This is indeed a Team Work orchestrated by the Holy Spirit. We also see money coming in to fill up the needs of about $13,000 USD a month. Who are we that God has such mercy on us and is willing to love these girls through us.

With that our trust in God grew. Building a school for girls from poor families has been one of our original goals to combat human trafficking. This is a preventive measure that will lift many girls from poverty by giving them the right values grounded in the Bible.  We bought a piece of land last October and have started the building project which should be completed by next summer (2015). The Lord willing classes will start next fall.

This second project takes greater faith in God. A total of U.S. $480,000 is needed to cover the cost of building itself. We thank God that half of the total amount has already come in and we still need $250,000. We will look to our faithful God to provide what is needed and our monthly operational fees as well. I thank God for this opportunity to experience His faithfulness and the love of many of His children.  

Attached please find a letter from Mrs. Lily Lee, President of FiCF, to share with you in more details about our school project. Our girls in Cambodia may have broken wings, but with God’s healing power and your support, they will be able to fly again.

Thank you for your prayer and/or financial support.  Have a Blessed Christmas.

In His Love,

Vicky

Home Mission
 
The Mission Committee also arranges for volunteering opportunities to serve those in need within our community, participates in Operation Christmas Child, and looks for other ways we can help globally.  For several years, we have been serving the homeless through CityTeam Ministries in San Francisco.  Our volunteers have served meals, distributed clothing, and provided comfort and conversation through their feet washing ministry.  Our congregation has participated in packing shoe boxes to be distributed to children worldwide so that they would have basic hygiene products, school supplies, and toys, along with the opportunity to know more about Jesus.  We have also collected bibles and other Christian literature that was sent overseas to help missionaries distribute and use the products to further the gospel. 

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.  Acts 1:8
