任克達、任麥雅麗代禱信2019年3月

親愛的代禱夥伴:

        感謝主,我們已經平安回到南非德班。工作匯報期間,除了工作報告外,我們也有機會與支持我們事工的教會和關心南非宣教的弟兄姐妹交流,給了我們很多的學習和激勵。首先我們要感恩的是各個教會堂會對南非事工的關心、代禱和支持,沒有因為時間的久遠而減少。見到我們美國的教會又拓展了一個分堂,我們和那裡的弟兄姐妹一起聚會,可以感受到他們有著一份動力,有著一份關心人、願意與人分享福音的熱誠。我想這個教會不斷發展的根基是在他們不斷成長的會眾。我們也有機會見到幾位已經退休的義務傳道人。雖然他們早已退休,但只要是主的事工,他們就熱切參加。他們還組織退休弟兄們成立禱告小組,為教會事工禱告,真是老當益壯。這些點點滴滴都給了我們很好的啓發和提醒。

        神保守看顧我們是及時無誤的。當你經歷過,就能了解神愛的長闊高深。特別是在緊急危難之中,在每分每秒都是很重要的時候。教會的楊弟兄是一位壽司師傅,三個月前的一個早上,他為新居後園做清理工作試用電鋸,一不小心鋸傷了右手掌,第一時間所想的就是:「糟了!完了!」因為妻子應已去工作,無法去醫院了;回神想到妻子今早因故遲延,尚未出門,還有救!能保存幾個手指還是好的。他們到達醫院時,剛好骨科的醫生可以開刀(雖然緊急,但南非的醫院通常都需要等待很久,以至影響治療),就為他動了手術。出事那天,我和教會另一對弟兄姐妹去探望他,他一直在感謝神的保守和安排,讓他能及時動手術,而且情況很樂觀。現在手指神經都通了,只有一個手指還需要再做一次手術。感謝主!祂不誤事!

        神安排照顧我們是超過我們所想所求的。教會中的阿梅姐妹一家一直生活拮据,她的先生一直都寄人籬下。他是一個憨厚老實的人,為了感謝他的老闆替他們申辦南非身份,不願過河折橋,對不起人,情願自己吃虧。於是,就委身他那份薪金不佳的工作,只求穏定。去年年中,阿梅姐妹告訴我們他們的老闆決定要退休,考慮將中餐外賣店轉手給他們,我們持續為這件事禱告,求主引領。他們的困難是兩個孩子現在讀中學,若他們無法接手外賣店,靠着打工恐怕無法繼續支付學費和生活費。神恩待他們,他們終於得以承接外賣店!因為外賣店是在城的另外一邊,有四十分鐘車程,他們必需搬去店的附近居住,而且要安排每天早午兩次接送兒子(女兒學校在店附近)。教會一位姐妹的住屋離他們外賣店約五分鐘,也剛巧要找房客,因為她的兒子和媳婦現在要常常往返中國,想找可靠的華人分租。神也感動一位住在他們兒子中學附近的慕道友願意開放家庭,平價出租房間給他們的兒子,並且免費每天接送他往學校。真是很完滿!阿梅姐妹一家為這買店過程中發生的事感恩不斷!神是奇妙的神!

請你為這些事項代禱:

  1. 為阿梅姐妹夫婦感謝神,他們同心決定店舖一切經營要誠實合法。請為他們禱告,求主引領他們的準備工作,也為他們預備會計師及廚房幫手。
  2. 感謝神,慕道友杰英已決志信主。已經安排為她受浸並學習真道的課程。請為她代禱,求主保守她的信心,引領她靈命繼續成長。
  3. 請為楊弟兄代禱,求主保守他的手能完全康復。
  4. 請為張弟兄患焦慮症的女兒代禱,今年是畢業年,她的壓力更大。求主安慰她,賜她寧靜的心情,也求藥物能發揮醫治療效。
  5. 請為我們外出各地事工時,行車和出入的平安代禱。

您的同工

Dear Prayer Partners,

        We thank God for bringing us back safely in Durban.  During our furlough, we not only reported on our ministry for the last term but also had wonderful sharing with brothers and sisters who are supporting God’s work in South Africa.  We were greatly refreshed and encouraged.  The caring, prayers and support from all the churches were no less than we first started 18 years ago.  We also shared at a newly-established sister church in the States.  Among the congregation was a sense of energy, a sense of genuine concern to reach out for the soul with the gospel.  We believe that church growth stems from the spiritual growth of the congregation.  We also had the opportunity to meet with a few retired ministers.  They still serve in the church voluntarily.  Some of them even rally among the retired brothers and sisters to form a prayer group to intercede for the church ministry.  They are living out a good example of faithful servants!

        God’s protection is always at perfect timing.  Only when you experienced it, you would not fathom the depth and width of God’s love for you; especially when it is so critical that even every minute counts.  Brother Yang is a Sushi chef.  One morning about three months ago, he tried to trim a tree branch with an electric saw.  With the slip of the hand, the saw cut across his right hand.  The first thought that came to his mind was, “Oh no!  I’m done!”  It was because his wife should have gone to work at this time, and no one could take him to the hospital right away; but then he remembered that she was still home due to some unexpected delay, and he called out to her.  He might be able to save some fingers after all!  When they arrived at the emergency room, there was, to their surprise, an orthopedic surgeon on duty who could operate on him right away (usually people had to wait for a long time to be attended to even in an emergency thus caused irreversible delay in treatment).  The operation was a great success.  Later that day, Ko-Ta and another couple visited him.  He was full of awe at how God had protected him and provided him with the best possible care.  At this moment, the nerves of all the fingers are working again.  He just needs another operation on one of the fingers.  Praise the Lord!  He is always right on time!

        God’s provision is always beyond our imagination.  Sister Mei and her family have been living from day to day because her husband is the sole breadwinner of the family but has been paid poorly.  It was due to the fact that his long-time boss had helped him and his family gain South African citizenship.  He is a simple and honest man; he does not want to be ungrateful by changing jobs or asking for any raise.  In the middle of last year, his boss was contemplating to retire and sell him the Chinese takeaway shop where he works as the chef.  We were all praying for them.  They were facing a difficult time as their two children just started secondary school, and the husband’s pay could no longer support their livelihood and the tuition.  The business would be a good solution.  Praise the Lord!  They finally got the business.  As the shop is located about a 40-minute drive from where they live, they needed to look for a new place that is closer to the shop.  They also had to find a way for their son to commute to school every day (his school is close to home, their daughter’s school is close to the shop).  At that time, a sister whose house is about a five-minute drive from their shop was looking for tenants.  Since her son and daughter-in-law had decided to spend most of their time back in China, she wanted to find reliable Chinese to occupy the detached house on her property.  God also moved the heart of a friend who lives very close to their son’s school to take him in for a very low rent as well as agreed to drop him off and pick him up from school for free.  Everything worked out perfectly!  The whole family was full of gratefulness at God’s hand in their lives!  Our God is wonderful!

Prayer Requests:

  1. Thank God for Sister Mei. They had made a commitment to operate their new business honestly and legally.  Please pray for all the preparation in starting the new business and for them in finding a suitable auditor and a good employee.
  2. We praise the Lord for Sister Jie Ying who accepted Christ as her personal Savior. We have arranged for her to attend Basic Christianity classes and for her baptism.  Please pray for her continued faith and growth in the Lord.
  3. Please pray for complete recovery for Brother Yang.
  4. Please pray for Brother Zhang’s daughter. She is suffering from anxiety disorder, and this last year of high school causes more stress on her.  Please ask for comfort and peace from the Lord as well as effectiveness of her medication.
  5. Please continue to pray for our safety as we travel to different cities and towns.

In His service,
Ko-Ta & Christina
