God has indeed shown great mercy to Care Ministry International (CMI) over the past twelve years. As we look back, the ministry continues to expand under the guidance of God Himself. Gratefully, I am going to review our work as follow: Passing on the Mission Vision (MM: Mission Mobilization) the fire of missionary work ignited by the Holy Spirit was observed ubiquitously; Mission Prayer Fellowships (MPF) have been established in a lot of places; Missionary Prayer Convention (MPC) is currently being held annually throughout the United States and in Taipei; The Cambodian medical mission trip led by Rev. Jonathan Qiu since 2007 has been running continuously for eight years and we are planning to add another session; the seminary student cross-cultural missionary field internship and training courses (MFT) led by Rev. Chih-Chin Liu had completed its 11th year. Recently, Dr. & Mrs. Andrew Huang have completed two Kairos courses. They are planning to add a supplemental course “From Dedication to Mission Field” as well as a “Weekend Missionary Training Course” designed with churches in mind. Of course, CMI’s most important mission is the recruitment and equipping of missionaries, sending and caring for them. Every event requires manpower and financial support. Our Missionary Prayer Partner Team (MPPT) has been the driving force behind the scene through supplicating and fasting. Moreover, new CMI branches have been established in other countries, voluntarily passing the mission vision and pushing for actions… we are being touched and encouraged!
While we were in Japan in August, we stood in front of a golden rice field, because we saw and heard the “Call from Macedonia”. Please pray for more workers to do the harvesting in Japan.
God has added an even bigger and harder challenge on us three years ago. On one hand, we are working on the establishment of Rapha Institute in Cambodia to equip nursing professionals and training missionary nurses so that eventually the gospel does not just enter Cambodia, but also come out from Cambodia to other countries, making Cambodia a missionary country. On the other hand, as co-workers look forward, contemplate and discuss together, we realize that we cannot ignore the needs of the hard to reach areas of the world – the Muslim and Japan. If God allows and open the door for CMI, we are willing to submit.
We were being sent as missionaries by CMI to Hong Kong in the year 2006 and served at the Chinese Coordination Centre of World Evangelism for five years. We continue to serve at CMI upon return to Los Angeles in 2011, and willingly accepted the assignment from the Board of Directors as President of the organization. Three years passed by quickly. By God’s mercy, many tasks which we are not capable of doing have been accomplished. His mercy was on us again by lifting the by-pass surgery in June. However severe acid reflux has led to stomach ulcer. Fatigue, in addition to aging make us realize that it is time to pass the baton. We pray that God will raise up the successor who will work with one heart and in partnership with the co-workers to spread the gospel to the ends of the world till the Lord comes.
Your supplication is what we need.

After two years of networking upon their return to Kaohsiung, Pastor and Mrs. Chih-Chin Liu initiated a pastoral minister coworker prayer meeting at Kaohsiung Baptist Church on Sept 9. Eight missionary organizations participated in the exhibition to introduce their ministries to the churches. Our goal is to create a platform for more communications on missionary work amongst Kaohsiung’s missionary organizations and churches. Sixty-five pastors, ministers and co-workers attended the meeting.
