Letter from Jemmy and Shining Chen

Dear saints,

When I was gained on the UCI campus in 1993, I did not think I would be in Irvine for 23 years. I watched the children we served in the children’s meeting grow up into faithful servants of the Lord. Now with children of my own, the north wind was blowing when my boss of 20 years passed away early last year, and his lab at UCI closed. At the same time, there were practical considerations for the living situation of our growing family. Sining and I had much fellowship and prayer before the Lord concerning where He would lead us to go. I cast a wide net, sending resumes even to other states, fully open to follow the Lord wherever He would go. But the Lord closed all those doors, as the only job offer I received came from a small company in Cypress with a company culture favorable for the church life for raising a family.

As we were considering the need for a more appropriate home for our growing family, we did not want a homy just for ourselves. We wanted our home search to be for the building of God’s house. Would the Lord lead us to stay in Irvine, and I would commute to Cypress? Or would He lead us to move to another city, perhaps closer to work? The Lord’s word to me was “Cast your net on the other side.”  On the other side of where? On the other side of Irvine? On the other side of which of the cities in which we were looking? Again, the Lord closed the doors that would not be opened and opened the door that would not be shut. We cast our net on the other side of Orange County, and closed escrow on a place in Cypress. We had already met with the saints there.

As we continued to pray that the Lord would gain the building of His Body throughout the process of our move, the Lord spoke a further word in our experiences from the saints who helped us build the furniture from Ikea. There was a sense of satisfaction when a piece of furniture was completed according to every detail in the pictures shown with no parts left over. But when something was finished with even a few of the smallest screws or even a dowel no larger than a pinky finger left over, there was no feeling of rest, although outwardly it seemed complete (those parts belonging in the less visible parts of the furniture). There was the feeling to take it apart and put them in where they belonged. How much more the Lord feels about the indispensability of every member of His body! He left the 99 to seek the one lost sheep because every single one was needed for His building. Whether we are like those of high esteem from the tribe of Judah or those of low esteem from Dan, we all must take part in His building work. Praise the Lord for such a governing vision for every work for His building work. Praise the Lord for such a governing vision for every work for His increase in the Body!

- Jemmy, Shining, Hosanna and Moses Chen

Local Prayer Burden: The New Administration (for Those in Power)

As instructed in 1 Timothy 2:1-4, pray that this administration will be used by the Lord for the sake of the practice and advancement of the church life and for the sake of all men (for the proclamation of the gospel and truth).
