Mission is our focus.
Mission (宣教 差傳) is our purpose. Our name, LLWWEM, the last letter "M" stands for Mission. In 1942, the two last words "Evangelistic Mission" was translated into Chinese as 佈道會, or Organization of Evangelistic Mission. So, you can see Mission is the critical part of our name.
In this webpage, we have stories, testimonies, witnesses, or other sharing concerning past mission projects sponsored by churches within LLWWEMA. We cordially ask you to give all the glory to our Lord Jesus Christ, and we sincerely thank you for your prayer support, financial support, or even physical participation!

Toronto SBC, July 2006 ... As early as in early 2005, Rev. Ian Bush of Toronto Ling Ling Liang Church (TLLC) mentioned in a meeting at Torrnce BOL church the desire of his church to hold a Summer Bible Camp (SBC, usually also called VBS), but was lack of resources. Torrance BOL church responded enthusiastically to volunteer for recruiting a team to assist his church. In early 2006, other NAD churches were contacted for their participation. New York Ling Liang Church responded and wanted to be a part of the team. Praise God, by the beginning of summer, we formed a team of six, two from New York and four from Torrance. At the meantime, the TLLC was forming a staff from both TLLC and Grace Ling Liang Church Toronto (GLLC) under the leadership of Queenie Chow. In June, about two months before the VBS, Brother Sam Lee of Torrance BOL went to Toronto to meet with the Toronto VBS staff for a weekend of orientation and training. During the month of July, TLLC put in a great effort to promote the SBC in their neighborhood. By the time the SBC began, there were over 29 children came though over 30 had signed up. The week-long SBC ran from 9 to 4 everyday. Like most VBS, it included Bible classes, music, crafts, snacks and games in our daily routine. The SBC program began the day with staff meeting and prayer and end the day with discussion on how we might do better. Everyone was enthusiastic and cooperative. Working with the children with and each other were of a time of joy as evidenced by smiles and laughters. Toward the end of SBC, we made an intentional effort to share the Gospel with the children, some were on a one-to-one setting. To our knowledge, at lease 7 had accepted Christ as Savior. Both the staff and the STM team came away with the feeling that we had indeed brought glory to God. We also established a new sense of kinship with each other. We all hope that our effort would be a beginning of a new adventure with each other in serving our Lord through the Ling Liang churches in North America, particularly in Canada.
