Dear Friend,

We would like to celebrate God's goodness over seven years of ministering at the International Graduate School of Leadership. We just produced the 2023 class of 28 seasoned Christian leaders (from MA to PhD) and commissioned them back to China, India, Lebanon, Nepal, Philippines, South Korea, and the U.S. Along with that, we’re transitioning to another season of our journey and are embracing a heavenly nomad style by moving once again! After much prayer and consultation, we have decided to take a one-year furlough to recharge. Eunice and I are now preparing to pack our bags for an upcoming furlough back in the U.S. Interestingly, despite having done this multiple times before, it never gets any easier.

With the Lord's help, we have served Christ for 11 years in Asia, after spending 16 years in Africa, and seven of those years have been in the Philippines. With our days in the Philippines numbered (we'll be starting our sabbatical year from July 2023), we’re busy wrapping up things here in Asia. Our desire is to remain sensitive and obedient to the Lord's leading, as it was his guidance that initially brought us to Kenya, Korea, and the Philippines years ago. Had we not obeyed, EAPTC's work in 10 African nations, and now in Korea, China, Philippines, Vietnam, and India would not exist today. We humbly request your continued prayers as we navigate the uncharted waters of our journey in America.

We truly appreciate the international EAPTC team. The good in our global ministry reflects God's grace and their unwavering dedication. Working with them brings joy. Please continue to uplift the team in your prayers as they engage in various outreach activities in the communities of Africa and Asia in the second half of 2023. Notable achievements include the opening of a children's home in Tanzania in January. In Kenya, we held a national pastors' meeting in April, with upcoming events such as a women's meeting in August, an annual conference in November, and a national youths conference in December. In Malawi, fruitful events included an Easter convention in April and a women's conference in May. In August, we have plans for an evangelistic mission outreach, followed by an annual conference in December. We are launching the fourth house church plant in India. I visited India in April to assess the progress, and am delighted to report that the work in India is now firmly established, with three house churches regularly gathering throughout T city each week. Pastor N and his team are actively searching for a rented worship facility to accommodate the growing congregation on weekends. We also have an ongoing church planting initiative in Bohol, Philippines. It's worth mentioning that our outreach extends even to Pakistan, where the Christian presence faces constant threat due to its predominantly Muslim population. With your generosity, we supported N's school, which caters to poor and persecuted Christian children.

"His truth is marching on!" Thank you for faithfully journeying with me and EAPTC as a whole. Together, we're making a lasting impact in the nations. Glory to God!

Joyfully yours for the nations,
Dr. Paul Lee (& Eunice)

[The Lees Update] Newsletter (March 2023)

Dear Friend,

Manila, Philippines, is notorious for what I coin as the NTW challenge: Noise, Traffic, and Weather. As our life in the Philippines marks seven years in 2023, Eunice and I seem to experience exhaustion in our souls and bodies. It may be a sign of Elijah syndrome, we were lately told. Please pray that we strategically navigate our missional call and stay on the right course despite challenges. The Lord energized his servant when the prophet Elijah felt weary and lay under a broom tree. He reminded him of his mission, eventually leading him to meet Elisha, a faithful coworker. Furthermore, God reserved seven thousand whose knees have not bowed down to Baal (1 Kings 19:18). Truly, what energizes us during this time is that God has allowed us to meet faithful coworkers worldwide. As Elijah did, we feel comforted and encouraged when we meet, fellowship, and serve with them.

Through it all, God has been gracious to us in many ways. In January, I re-assumed my teaching ministry to a new group of seminary students joining from the Philippines, Nepal, India, and China. Those dynamic and passionate learners with diverse ministerial and cultural backgrounds bring much-needed discussions on their community transformation. I find it exhilarating to coach and guide these potential students with biblical principles and wisdom. Most of them are influencers who can lead others for a godly and positive impact on the Majority World nations where they came from. Many of them ministers in the areas of Asia that are hostile to Christian faith. I consider their ministry fruit as my ministry fruit, their success as my success. So should you. By standing with this mission, you’re investing the seeds of your prayer and giving. I believe this is fertile soil. Eunice is also heavily involved in her teaching ministry for the wives of seminarians. We pray that they, along with their spouses, will be trained and nurtured through the word to get further equipped to serve as more effective instruments in God’s church.

The upcoming ministry travel itinerary is set for multiple destinations on top of my regular teaching responsibilities. I'll be back in India in April to encourage our EAPTC coworkers there. I’ll be traveling to Cebu in May to check on the potential church plant. I’m scheduled to give training in June to pastoral ordination candidates in the Visayas archipelago. Kindly be in prayer with us as we understand the Lord’s mind and follow his leading in this uncharted age that appears to be entering the post-COVID era, even in this part of the world. We’re not trying to catch up with the "delayed" schedule due to the pandemic but are constantly gazing to discern the Lord’s move for this chapter of history.

Thank you for faithfully standing with us for the nations. We’re privileged to work with you on this missional journey. May our loving Lord warm your heart and draw you closer to him in this Lent season. Blessings to you, your family, and your loved ones, dear friend, as you follow Christ.

Cheerfully serving with you,
Dr. Paul Lee (& Eunice)
