吳約瑟、吳黃月甜代禱信(58)2019年2月

親愛的親友及主內兄姊們平安:

        恭祝大家農曆新年快樂,果子更多!我們因天父聽了十二月的代禱信所分享的禱告事項而歡喜,感謝主!多謝您們為新光幼稚園的聖誕節慶祝會禱告,流程順暢,來參加的家長比我們預料的多。幼稚園的小朋友都上台唱歌,用鐘聲彈奏音樂,彈木琴或讀書等表演。

        活石堂的聖誕節慶祝吸引了新朋友和舊朋友來參加。當天的程序有崇拜、福音信息分享,兒童、婦女和青年人分組獻唱,還有柬埔寨民俗舞等節目。最後是柬埔寨地道雞肉咖哩粉作為午餐,各人都歡喜快樂。

        十二月有中華福音使命團短宣隊一行十二人來一星期多,他們主要在教會外牆繪畫以「天父的花園」為主題的壁畫,和用彩虹的顏色重油教會門前的大閘。他們畫的外牆壁畫有專業水準,其中有花、太陽、天虹和動物等。他們完成後,吸引多15名幼稚園學生和3名小朋友來託兒所。

        天父帶領活石堂組成執委會,由四名弟兄和一名姊妹為成員。波拿(Phalla)願意成為活石堂的傳道和執委會的主席。他與他的太太莎域(Savy)在活石堂開始時作傳道三年,波拿後來去視博恩工作七年,而莎域就一直在活石堂事奉。

        我們準備退休,今年起,會多次來回加拿大和柬埔寨,兩地停留各半時間。約瑟的醫生需要半年時間來調教他現在每天需要服用的藥物。我們在二月四日去了加拿大,現在的氣溫是零下20度左右,如有寒風吹襲,氣溫會降至零下40度。但在室內有暖氣便會很舒服。

        多謝您們多方面的支持和禱告。以下是我們的感恩和求恩事項:

感恩事項:

  1. 教會組成了執委會,波拿為教會的傳道。
  2. 教會外牆壁畫吸引至新光幼稚園有多15名學生和3名小朋友來託兒所。
  3. 去年八月有兩位從澳洲來的義務老師在幼稚園幫助教書,她們在一月時再來三星期幫助教師訓練、編輯教案和重組教材。她們是委身的基督徒,並在我們的教員中有好的見證。

求恩事項:

  1. 我們進入退休的過渡時期。
  2. 我們的兩個兒子、兒婦、女兒和她的丈夫都能熱心愛主。
  3. 教會有會友結婚兩年便離婚,祈求天父憐憫他們,叫他們的心靈得醫治。
  4. 珍妮(Chantie)在聖誕節前開始返教會並接受主,但現在停止了聚會,她因為未信的丈夫而拒絕我們去探望她。請為她的信心能站立得穏禱告。

        多謝您們的禱告和多方的支持!

主內                
約瑟,月甜上

Dear friends and family,

        Happy Chinese New Year and a fruitful year to come! We have exciting things to share since the last time we wrote in December 2018. Thank you for praying for the Christmas celebration of Sonlight Kindergarten. It went well and more parents attending than we anticipated. The students sang, played music with the bells, xylophone and read book. Every student was involved in something.

        Christmas celebration at church drew some new friends and old friends who came before. We had worship, sermon, special songs from ladies, youth, children, Khmer traditional dance and lastly finished with chicken curry meal. We all enjoyed ourselves very much.

        Another highlight is the drawing of a mural (big picture) on the outside wall of our church building and repainting of our gates. The Hong Kong team organized by our mission did a very beautiful and awesome job! While they were drawing, people of all ages stopped and admired at the beauty of the drawing. It shows the wonderful creation of God with the sun, rainbow, animals and flowers. An amazing thing happened is that we had about 15 students enrolled for our kindergarten and a few toddlers to our nursery.

        God did another wonderful work in our church; at the end of January our church committee with five members was set up. Phalla was willing to be our local pastor. He and his wife, Savy served with us at the start of Living Stone Church for three years; then he resigned and worked for Christian Broadcasting Network for about seven years. But his wife stayed in our church and has been with us ever since.

        We are at awe of what God has been doing as we are preparing for retirement. Thank you so very much for supporting us through different ways, especially your prayers and care. As we went through challenges in serving God in Cambodia your prayers and care helped us to go on and of course with God’s calling to stay on. We are now planning to stay in Cambodia as missionary advisor for half a year and half a year in Canada each year. We have been in Calgary, Canada since February 4. It is very cold now; these few days the temperature went down to -24°C during day time. With the wind chill factor, it can get to-40°C.  But staying inside it’s warm and cozy.

        That’s all the news for now. Thank you for partnering with us in our mission service. Please continue to praise God and pray for our needs.

Praise items:

  • Church committee is formed with Phalla as the local pastor.
  • 15 more children enrolled to kindergarten after the mural is drawn on the outside wall of the church building.
  • 2 volunteer teachers from Australia came in last August 2018 and again in January 2019 to help training our teachers who are inspired by their teaching method and utilizing all our resources. They also reset the teaching curriculum and files. They did a fantastic job. Both are committed Christians which is a good testimony to our staff.

Prayer items:

  • Our transition period preparing for retirement.
  • Our two sons, daughter and their spouses that they will be closer to God and live a life pleasing to God.
  • One couple of our church just got divorced; please pray for healing and most of all that they can be reconciled by God’s love and grace.
  • Chantie came to our church shortly before Christmas and accepted Jesus as her Saviour and attended our church about four times. Then she fell and hurt her foot and stopped coming. She does not want us to visit her because of her unsaved husband. Please pray that she will stand firm in her in found faith.

        We’d love to hear from you and pray for you if you have any prayer requests!

In Him,                     
Joseph and Liza Ng
