COVID case numbers exploded after control measures were relaxed across East Asia. Ninety percent of our trainers got infected. On top of that, outbreaks across many training sites forced us to postpone most of our training sessions last month. Pray for training work to promptly resume and for COVID to be contained.
Due to the epidemic last month, SALT teachers were unable to meet as scheduled. Pray that they can convene as soon as possible to formulate ministry directions and strategies for 2023. May the Lord lead them to take up their mission with boldness and faithfulness.
The goal of the Curriculum team for 2023 is to complete the revision of the old course Old Testament Survey 4 and to finish the compilation of the new course Nehemiah. We will also start writing another new course Philippians. May God guide us in the new year to achieve these aims so that churches in East Asia would be equipped and empowered for His glory!
SALT trainers in East Asia will meet this month to review last year’s work under COVID, and to discuss future strategies. May the Lord grant them safety, unity, and health for a smooth meeting.
Various trainings have been arranged for this month. Given the strict pandemic prevention measures, pray for the Lord’s protection over all teachers, students and site managers.
The SALT Board met last month. Pray for the Lord’s leading to implement the resolutions so that the ministry continues to grow and transform lives.
Trust with us for God’s provision in spite of the potential deficit this year for SALT. May the God of abundance sustain our work in equipping and empowering believers across East Asia.
Our Board of Directors will meet this month. Pray for fruitful discussions under God’s guidance so that we may do His will.
Please cover the safety of all our partnering sites, national trainers, and students under the current challenging environment and strict lockdowns.
Thank God for the smooth completion of the third and final trial test of the revised Homiletics course. Pray for our editors to finish reviewing the comments received so that the course can be officially launched early next year. May it greatly bless the churches in East Asia.
A moderate deficit has been recorded for SALT this year. Join us in trusting God for His abundant provision so that our ministry may continue to equip and strengthen believers for His kingdom glory!
