We are writing this letter to express our deep gratitude and sincere blessings to you. Thank you for your selfless support and dedication to the work of Golden Lampstand Ministries during this time. Your love and generosity have enabled us to continue advancing the mission of the Golden Lampstand Missional Village, bringing God’s love and gospel to the community and the world.
Today, we would like to update you on some ministry news. We have taken a small step forward in developing the Golden Lampstand Missional Village in South Windsor. We have worked on reclaiming the sandy land, and some green vegetation has grown on the previously injured soil. However, there is still a need for further improvement in the overall restoration plan. Last year, we established a parking lot that can accommodate more than ten vehicles, providing a convenient space for brothers and sisters visiting the missional village. This year, we are preparing to submit blueprints to the planning and zoning committee of the town. We are also formulating a three-year action plan. We plan to develop a trail in the fields next year, allowing people to seek spiritual nourishment and retreat in a natural environment. At the same time, while we continue to raise funds for the construction of the pastoral and educational center, we will initially establish a low-cost educational farm to provide a favorable platform for community outreach.
We earnestly request your continued prayers and vigilance for the work of Golden Lampstand Ministry. Let us join hands and move toward the vision and mission of rekindling fire and igniting light, passing the torch of faith to the next generation. May we be faithful before the Lord, growing in strength and grace. May our ministry reflect the nature of God, allowing the living waters of grace to flow to those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.
Let us encourage and pray for one another with these three Bible verses:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
“And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that followed.” Mark 16:20
“That you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in a warped and crooked generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life.” Philippians 2:15-16
Thank you for your prayers and financial contributions, and we kindly ask you to introduce fellow companions to join us (https://thegoldenlampstand.org/thank-you-for-your-giving). Let us work together to complete the construction of the missional community. May we strive together to let the light of Christ shine in this empty and chaotic world, bringing glory to God and benefiting others, and living out love in the world we are in.
With love in Christ,
Pastor: Dr. Abraham Chan,
Executive Director: Mrs. Stella Tse
