Dear Friends of CCM,
On the eve of Thanksgiving season, we send you greetings In Christ!
Our “Missionary with No Boundaries” – Chinese Today, has been timely for the past 56 years, rain
or shine, delivering testimonies of God’s Word to our kinsmen all over the world. Our latest statistics
shows that circulation of the three versions (Taiwan; Singapore and Malaysia; North America) have
reached 410,000 copies each period. They are being sent to North America, Central and South
America, Asia, The Pacific Region, Northeastern Europe, Southwestern Europe, Africa and Middle
East with a total of 101 countries or regions.
Our missionary couple, Sindy and Derek Leung, sent us their first letter of prayer request after being
transferred to a new mission field. “Praise the Lord! We arrived safely in Guayaquil, Ecuador on
June 5th. While visiting kinsmen in Cuenca, they told us that many Chinese are coming to Ecuador
to make a living. It is a large Chinese gospel field. Please pray that we could adapt to the new environment
quickly including the climate, language, and ministry.”
On July 15, San Francisco Gospel Center held an evangelical event “Share God’s Love in the passionate
summer”, where 150 people attended and 6 accepted Christ. On July 19, Milpitas Gospel
Center invited a Gospel singer from Hong Kong to share his testimony. More than 30 people showed
up and 3 accepted Christ. On July 29th the South Bay Gospel Center invited a famous Peking
Opera singer from Taiwan to lead the evangelistic meeting “Meeting God in Love”, where 130 people
attended, 2 accepted Christ and 5 people were willing to continue to seek and know Him.
On August 8, a big earthquake occurred in the Northern part of Sichuan Province. Four days after
the disaster, our missionary couple who serve among the ethnic minorities, along with the church
rescue team visited the Anduo disaster area. “We made door-to-door visits to distribute daily necessities,
mineral water, instant noodles, pots and pans, kitchen supplies, vegetables and raincoats. As
fall and winter are coming soon, we plan to collect more donated warm supplies. We will visit them
again to deliver materials and the gospel to them.
Due to heavy rains in the beginning of this year, the roof of CCM Headquarter in California had more
than 10 water leaking areas. We have replaced the roof, sealed the leaking areas and painted the
external walls of the building before the rainy season comes. Total expenses came to about
US$100,000. We sincerely ask you to continue to support our ministries with your generous donations.
We want to thank you and wish you a warm and happy Thanksgiving Holiday!
Sincerely in Christ,
Samuel Chiang (Rev.)
