Note of Thanks, from the Showalters

Beloved Abundant Grace Friends,

You’ve shown appreciation, generosity and love to us as we’re leaving, far more than we could have asked or imagined. Thanks for your words of blessing, your prayers, red packets and hugs. What an amazing expression of Christ’s love and beauty you all are!

We leave June 2 for Denver, Colorado/USA, where we’re doing a wedding for family friends. Then on to Philadelphia on the east coast of the US. We’re exploring possible places to settle, after living most of the 30 years of our married life in Greater China. As global disciples we want to keep in step with the Spirit, doing what Jesus is doing. Each of us. Every day. Everywhere.

Some parting words of advice:

At this time of transition, get involved.

Share your gifts and your love with Abundant Grace.

Trust God, Pastor Rick and the Elders.

For AGIF the best is yet to come.

We appreciate your prayers in this major life transition. And we welcome you to visit us, wherever we pitch our tent. And do keep in touch. Our personal email addresses are and Of course we’ll be back to Shanghai to visit.

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord smile on you and be gracious to you
The Lord look upon you with favor and give you shalom (peace, harmony with God and others, health and prosperity).

We love you,

Nate & Chris
