The great world map is too big and needs to be taken down. It does not have the many important places in China that imaged in me when I went to Guangzhou, too. I wanted to get a world map, but when I went to the shops, they are just so expensive – $40 and above, and they does not display the places in Chinese but only in English. Then I found this S$16 map (most in English, but Chinese words to those states and provinces) to my joy, with God fulfilling me as I prayed to have a BIG BLUEPRINT always around me, reminding me and voicing me. I had this map with me for about 2-3 weeks and can’t find time to put up. Yet when we sent off Augustine, my heart, originally that his absence does not feel much, went from non-feeling, to preparing him from telling him that “you must test and approve even if it may not be that complete at first”, to giving him the vision and blueprint of <Acts> and how Paul was grown in faith at each turn in <Acts>, to telling him that the aim is not Hong Kong gospelization but the desire to live in the house of the Lord forever just like David in Ps 23:6 which is Emmanuel and 2-3 persons Emmanuel <Mt 18:18-20>, to tearing for his absence, to seeing the need to let him go, to commissioning him, to having the desire to remember him not half-heartedly when he is not in our midst but to remember him in full focus and attention of his life and living even when he goes back to Hong Kong, I resolute in my heart to put this map of China up, because I can see Christ wanting to intercede for deacon Augustine so much. With the help of Liwen, I put up the map of China, God’s State (神州). May God make me remember His glory, which is at the ends of the world, China, new every morning.
Liwen and I will be putting up photos of every commissioned worker that we meet before in Guangzhou on this map too 🙂
