Update #6 from Francis Chan
Well, we moved to San Francisco last week… I believe this is where God wants my family and me at this time. We will spend the next few weeks learning about the various ministries in this area. I want to be an encouragement to the different ministers out here. Sometimes, we can too quickly start ministries and hurt existing ministries. Due to our consumer mindset, people are prone to jump from church to church which weakens the church overall. In a place where there is so little church presence, we can’t afford to harm her overall health.
The other big news that Lisa is pregnant and due in May! We find out on Friday whether we’ll have our fourth girl or second boy! Right now, we are in a two-bedroom apartment with the six of us. We’re praying about the next step as it may get a little crazy with a newborn too. We are also in the process of adopting Isaac (the boy from China I mentioned in an earlier update). We doubt they will approve our living situation, so pray that God leads us in the right direction.
The family is doing really well. God continues to bless us and lead us. I am working on some projects that I believe can help the overall health of the church in America. It’s too soon to talk about it now, but I would appreciate your prayers.
There is still a lot of unknown, but I love the peace of following Him in uncertainty!
