The Taiwanese church that we support is bearing fruit not just in their prison ministry, but also in their outreach to the local Vietnamese community. On Sunday, June 12, 2016, this church baptized a 95-year-old lady.
It all started when the 95-year-old's Vietnamese caretaker became a Christian at the church a few years ago. At first, the caretaker's boss (the elderly lady's children) treated her very strictly and didn't allow her to have Sundays off. She cried out to God, as she desired to go to church on Sunday. The church also prayed fervently for her and this situation.
Three months ago, the caretaker asked her boss if she could bring their mother to the church service, with the condition that if their mother didn't like it, she would never ask again. After the first church service, the elderly lady really liked it. Despite her hearing problem and language barrier, she has not missed a church service since then.
Sister Lilies (a Taiwanese Bible school intern at the church) helped teach her a simple form of the Ten Commandments before she got baptized. After learning about the first two commandments, the lady decided not to worship idols anymore and no longer paid her respects to the home altar when she passed by.
Praise the Lord for saving her and changing her heart! Please pray that she can keep her commitment to no longer worship the family altar, even though she faces pressure from her children.
