Jesse Burns introduces five new COM staff members and their families.
The Lord has blessed China Outreach Ministries with several new staff members since the beginning of January. We are pleased to say that God’s blessings are abundant, as He has also brought us several potential new candidates for ministry work, whom we are now praying with and guiding through the process of applying for potential staff roles on campuses across the country.
Please continue to keep us in your prayers, as we seek those who are called to build His work here at COM. There are so many to reach, and the needs are urgent. As ministry partners, you are also a part of our mobilization team. Please keep your minds and hearts open for those He may lead to His service here at COM. You may be His chosen instrument to bring knowledge of His work here at COM to those who would be called to be new workers in His fields!
Jesse Burns joined COM in the spring, following a 25-year career in retail management. He is serving in our leadership center in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania assisting in our mobilization efforts and human resources. Please pray for him as he partners with our mobilization leaders, Don and Myrna Hines, to identify new servants for His fields, and also as he works to serve our staff in his role as human resources facilitator. Mike Fetters volunteered with our Kent State University team in Ohio prior to joining the COM staff. He and his wife Terri, along with their children, have been a host family for international students for over ten years. He has also traveled extensively around the world on mission trips to share Christ with other cultures. Please pray for Mike as he takes on this new role, and as he assumes new responsibilities among the staff at Kent State.

Danny Geng is serving in the Pacific Northwest. He and his wife Judy Zhang have one son who just graduated from college and is working in San Francisco. Danny is in the process of establishing his campus ministry, including the recruitment of co-workers and coordinating cooperative partnerships with local churches. Please pray for him during these critical days.
David Tian is a former research scientist at Sandia National Lab and has his Ph.D. from New Mexico Tech. He has served as a volunteer with COM in Albuquerque, assisting Jim and Priscilla Duncan in the ministry to scholars at the University of New Mexico and has been led to join the ministry as a staff member. Please pray for David and his wife and daughter, as this new role brings change to their lives, and as David seeks to strengthen his burden and boldness for preaching the Gospel to the scholars in Albuquerque.
Peter Zhou just recently received his Master of Divinity from Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He is currently establishing his ministry in Pittsburgh, where he will be serving on the campuses at Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh. Please pray for him and his family as they work to find ministry partners, and as he seeks the hearts of Chinese scholars on these campuses.
