in the Northeastern Three Provinces of Holland between 2012 and 2013
In 2011, CEC Groningen in Holland reached out to the Chinese
in the northeastern provinces of Holland to spread Gospel to them and by
January 2013, we started monthly worship services, alternating between
restaurants in Leeuwarden and in Bolsward. We had 8 attendance the first night
in Bolsward, and 18 the second night in Leeuwarden. We were greatly encouraged.
May God lead us in this service.
CEC Utrecht in
Holland Gospel Outreach between 2009 and 2012
Veenendaal is about 45 km from Utrecht. Some church members
of CEC Utrecht live in Veenendaal, some run business there. There are also many
snack bars and restaurants run by Chinese in Veenendaal. In a September 2009
coworkers’ meeting, decision was made to start Bible study classes in
Veenendaal. Then in September 2011, the coworkers decided to start a youth
fellowship for children of restaurant owners. In 2012, after much prayer, the
coworkers decided to start a church in Veenendaal. So on October 11, 2012, they
signed a contract to purchase a church building. On October 20, 2012, the
church dedication was held, and CEC Veenendaal was formally established.
