Williamsburg Summer Mission, 2016    
​    威廉斯堡暑期短宣    

 This is the 7th year that Peninsula Chinese Baptist Church (PCBC) doing this Summer Mission in Williamsburg. It is a 10-week mission that reaches out to Chinese undergraduate students from mainland China. These college students are visiting Williamsburg with a 3-month “Work and Travel” visa (J1). In early June Co-workers started scouting local hotels/motels early June to verify whether they are accepting these J1 students. We then visited and passed out our invitations, collected their names, addresses/room numbers, phone number, and WeChat information. We got together every Tuesday for ten weeks (June 21 to August 23) at the Youth Center of Walnut Hills Baptist Church. Each session consists of a Chinese dinner, worship singing/sharing, short Gospel message and small group discussion. Message topics include Knowing the true God, Knowing the Bible, Knowing the sin, Knowing Jesus, Knowing Christians, Knowing the Salvation and Becoming Christians. Most of the teaching was conducted by co-workers from PCBC. In addition, there were three invited guest speakers. About 40 co-workers from PCBC were actively engaged in this mission. We also had an English speaking group to share gospel with non-Chinese students who are Turkey, Thailand, and other countries.

God is on the move among us in a powerful way. God provides for and sustains this ministry in every aspect of teaching, food, transportation, personal caring, and monetary offering. We had 23 students that accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior and were baptized. After their return to China, we also help them connect with local churches so that they can continue to grow spiritually.    
 过去的七年半岛华人浸信会持续在威廉斯堡开展为期十周的暑期短宣,对象是从中国大陆来的本科学生。他们持有J1签证旅行到威廉斯堡参加为期三个月的“暑期工作旅游”项目。 同工从六月初开始拜访各家旅馆查询他们是否接待中国学生,然后更进一步的拜访住在他们旅馆里的学生们,分发聚会邀请信,收集名 字,住址,电话, 微信信息。今年短宣从6月21日开始至8月23日止,共有十次周二晚上的聚会。聚会场所位是Walnut Hills Baptist Church的青少年中心。每次聚会程序是晚餐,诗歌敬拜,分享,基要信仰短讲及分组讨论。十周内容包括认识真神、认识圣经、认识罪、认识耶稣、认识基督徒、认识救恩及成为基督徒。大部分的教导由教会里的弟兄姊妹承担,其中有三周由特别邀请的讲员讲道。教会越有有40同工积极参与服事。此外对来自土耳其,泰国等其他国家的学生我们另外开设了英文组为他们传讲福音。

神的大能在我们中间运行。无论是教导,饭食,车辆接送,个人关怀及金钱奉献,他都丰盛预备和供应。今年夏天结出了丰盛的果实,共有23位学生信主并受洗。这些学生们回国之后,我们也帮助他们于中国当地的教会联系。愿神祝福他们保守他们生命的成长!
