This Friday we met for our weekly Bible study down at our ministry house.
Our very own Daniel Tsai gave a message on Apostle Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians. I personally found the letter particularly encouraging; as the Thessalonian's conviction to the gospel was shown through their work, labor, and steadfastness among a city that was mainly against them! They strove to imitate Apostle Paul as he imitated Jesus, allowing themselves to become examples to the rest of the churches Macedonia and in Achaia.

After the message, we began Summer Ops! Over the summer we decided to hold training sessions to train up the skills of the students in the summer in a hands-on way. This way we could also prepare our ministry for the upcoming school year as well!
Summer Ops is separated into several “classes” of focus: Praise, Outreach, Video, and Web.
Tristan and Brian getting trained by our praise lead Kevin in songs and music.
Josh and Alex practice holding conversations on biblical questions. While the sisters plan outreach for various locations!
Brandon, Nico & Erik work with Lenin on their video knowledge and brainstorm ideas for content!
Daniel trains Joey and Christian and myself on web design, as we update our sites photos and content!
All these classes are great ways to build up individual skills in a hands on way. This also gives us a chance to take part in the ministry of our church! I look forward to learning more!
