We are excited to be sending out this 2017 year end update. A lot has happened within Asian Mission for Christ (AMC) in 2017 and we are enthusiastic about the direction God is leading us in. As mentioned in our previous update, one of our biggest organizational accomplishments in 2017 was getting approval for AMC as an official 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Enclosed you will find updates on the various aspects of our ministry. Ahpu wrote an update letter on his mission work as well as some of the other native missionaries work. Ahti shared a letter about his family and the children’s home. Tax-deductible receipts for 2017 are enclosed as well. We are all so grateful for your endless support of the important work being done through AMC.
At the beginning of this month, AMC’s leadership team sat down and thought through what AMC’s goals should be in the year 2018. We have many visions, hopes and plans and pray God will bless them and bring them to fruition! One of our main areas of focus this year will be to raise funds for the Lisu Bible Institute (LBI) so that it can hopefully be opened soon for classes to resume. AMC firmly believes that the mission of LBI is central to everything else we do as an organization. Through LBI, the kingdom of God is successfully and sustainably spread. In order to raise additional support for AMC and LBI, we are reaching out to new churches and individuals. In October of 2017, we traveled to a church in Jeromesville, OH that a current supporter had connected us to. We were given the opportunity to share about AMC. Jeremiah shared about the basic components of AMC, LBI and his father’s work. Alison shared some personal stories of what LBI students do after they graduate. Tiffany focused on the children’s home and raising awareness for poor, at-risk children in Thailand. Ben shared a personal testimony from his trips to Thailand. This was a very fruitful and exciting experience for us all and we hope to continue sharing about AMC! If you know an individual, small group or church that may be open to learning about AMC, please connect us to them!
We are also working to spread the news of AMC through social media. We have found that this is an effective way to send out updates and post pictures as we receive them from our missionaries in Thailand. We recently created an Asian Mission for Christ Facebook page and you can find it at: www.facebook.com/AsianMissionForChrist. We will continue to update our website: www.asianmissionforchrist.org as well. As a reference, you can also find current and past update letters uploaded on this site.
In conclusion, we want to sincerely thank you all for your support of AMC. We are passionate about the work we can do state-side, but without your monetary support and prayers, none of our efforts would be worthwhile! Please continue to pray for AMC, for our growth and specifically for funding for LBI. You can reach us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 419-606-8494.
