REPUBLIC OF CHINA MINISTRY REPORT!
Vol 43 #6
What a difference in weather between Ukraine
with snow, wind and -15F (-26C) degrees and Taiwan, Republic of China
with 80F degrees, (30C) sun and humidity. However, like Ukraine, we
experienced the blessing of the Lord. I believe it is because you, are
praying for us. We had meetings scheduled every day, seeing God move by
The hall is filled and people are sitting on the balcony
These Chinese are hungry to hear the Word!
Writing you this Good News Report, sharing
some of the things God did by His Spirit is to encourage you to praise
the Lord and keep us in prayer for the harvest of Chinese souls. Praise
the Lord! If you like to see this report in full color, please check out

|It was good to
work again with John and Hyoncha Clark.
They have been our representatives and Associate Evangelists for
Abundant Life Crusades in Taiwan, Hong Kong, China and Southeast
Asia. They have also been friends of ours since 1979, when a
wonderful relationship began in friendship and ministry with them,
their family and church in Mountlake Terrace, Washington. (Just
north of Seattle) Missionaries John and Hyoncha Clark have spent the
past 20 years of their lives as missionaries to the country of
Taiwan. They, along with Pastor and Sister Chen planned our
itinerary in Taiwan. All of our ministry and crusades except one,
was held with the Presbyterian churches. They are the oldest church,
having sent the first missionaries to Taiwan formerly Formosa. We
were in the largest Presbyterian Church building in the country. In
the past we were the first foreigners to preach in many of their
churches. We have preached in their oldest and largest churches in
Tony and Marge say there is no greater joy
in the ministry than leading souls to Christ!
|In the past we have
spoken in their school of around 7,000 students. However, God is no
respecter of persons. Acts 10:34. He moved in every crusade and
service. Hundreds of people came forward to receive from the Living
Christ. Where we would begin to minister, the Holy Spirit would fall
upon these precious Chinese people, many and in some cases most of
them would be ?slain? under the power of the Holy Spirit.
It made me think of the early church
in the second chapter of Acts. People received Christ, they were
healed, filled with the Spirit and had their petitions answered. Our
one other outreach was with Dr. Tien. He not only heads up a
seven-story hospital but also owns it. He has used one whole floor
for a Chapel. Seven years ago Marge and I prayed over the building
and the area that was to be a Chapel.

|Although many outsiders
attended the outreach, Dr. Tien had many of his patients (some
hopeless), brought to the meeting for prayer. I do not know if I
have ever prayed over more people on wheel chairs in a meeting. Dr.
Tien tells that many of his hopeless cases have been healed through
prayer in his hospital. Sister Mistsi, a faith handmaiden of the
Lord, age over 90 years, was in the meeting.

worked with Sister Ruth Helgeson for many years in Taiwan. When we
first came to Taiwan in 1977 and had that great National Outreach,
both of them were such a blessing. We just found out on this mission
trip that Sister Helgeson passed away last year. Our loss but
heavens gain! What a day that will be when we see Jesus and all the
Saints who served Him though the ages. We also want to be faithful
each day of our lives.
Many fall out in the spirit and are healed
and filled with the Holy Spirit.
We were evangelizing in southwestern Taiwan, near
|Here is a little
information about Taiwan. The population of Taiwan is 22,894,384
(July 2005) and is located in Eastern Asia, islands bordering the
East China Sea, Philippine Sea, South China Sea, and Taiwan Strait,
north of the Philippines, off the southeastern coast of China
slightly smaller than Maryland and Delaware combined. In 1895,
military defeat forced China to cede Taiwan to Japan. Taiwan
reverted to Chinese control after World War II. Following the
Communist victory on the mainland in 1949, 2 million Nationalists
fled to Taiwan and established a government using the 1946
constitution drawn up for all of China. Over the next five decades,
the ruling authorities gradually democratized and incorporated the
native population within the governing structure. In 2000, Taiwan
underwent its first peaceful transfer of power from the Nationalist
to the Democratic Progressive Party. Throughout this period, the
island prospered and became one of East Asia's economic "Tigers."
The dominant political issues continue to be the relationship
between Taiwan and China - specifically the question of eventual
unification - as well as domestic political and economic reform.
Tony sits here and prays for the needs, so many, he weakened
Marge with women leaders.
|We believe Taiwan is a
key to continue to evangelize the huge country of China. Pray for
our brethren in both countries. God bless you and yours. Your
missionaries to the Nations, Tony and Marge Abram. 3 JOHN 2

|Please continue to pray
for us as we try to do what He wants us to do. We all want to hear
Him say on that last day, Mat 25:21 ?. Well done, thou good and
faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will
make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy
