Disciple Note – March 2024

Over the past weekend, we were joined by a group of 10 men, from Austin, San Antonio, and Tulsa, OK, for the Marvel Men Weekend in Canyon Lake and New Braunfels, Texas. Among them was a father and son duo, adding a special touch to our gathering.

We were blessed with perfect weather conditions, a beautiful trail skirting Canyon Lake, and a cozy Airbnb house that provided a quiet and affordable retreat. Over the course of 28 hours, these men engaged in various activities to become a Marvel Man, including our 4321 workout, a nearly 7-mile hike, heartfelt sharing of life stories, and genuine worship in truth and spirit.

Of course, we also had good food, campfire, and plenty of laughter. As the weekend drew to a close, we were collectively challenged to answer the call of Jesus, embracing the path of discipleship and committing ourselves to become disciple-makers.

This weekend held particular significance as it marked the first time Lei, Bin, and I independently orchestrated and led such an event, without the guidance of our mentor, Brent, who was away in California to build up brothers and encourage pastors. Despite our initial fear and trembling, we embraced Brent’s vision of a Chinese men’s ministry being spearheaded by Chinese men themselves. Praise to God for his power and wisdom, we were able to lead this trip successfully.

I am particularly grateful for Owen’s dedication, driving eight hours from Tulsa to join us. This marked the first time the four of us, the founding members of the Kingdom 4 disciple group, met face-to-face since its inception in January 2023. Our journey together has since expanded, evolving into Kingdom 5 and subsequently birthing another group, ATX 4. Through God’s grace, our everyday followers of Christ have become catalysts for a discipleship movement for the Chinese church.

I am very grateful for your prayers for Trailhead Fellowship, the success of the Marvel Men Weekend and many other activities, and our ongoing mission to lead  every Chinese man into experiencing the boundless love of God.

Finally, please do share how you are doing lately and how I can support you in your own journey of discipleship to Jesus.

Rejoicing always in the Lord,

Brother Ed
