吳約瑟、吳黃月甜代禱信(62)2019年10月

親愛的親友及主內兄姊們平安:

從柬埔寨向你們問安!我們在9月15日回到金邊,感恩很快已習慣了時差和生活。回來之後,很高興看見教會和幼稚園有新面孔。新光幼稚園和託兒所是沒有暑假的,今年立憲日是在9月24日,而亡人節在9月27-29日,於是幼稚園放假一星期。在沒有上課的日子,我們清洗幼稚園午睡的被鋪,和住在附近的同工一同修理桌子。我們在這假期也有時間休息,看書和定計劃。

柬埔寨人在亡人節前的十四天,會帶食物去最少七間廟宇祭祀先人。對基督徒來說是個屬靈爭戰的日子,因為家人會認為信主的人不照著這樣做是不孝。但我們的主耶穌已經勝過撒旦的權勢,亡人節正日那天是星期日,但回來敬拜的人數沒有減少。

10月14日是加拿大感恩節,我們要因天父賜的厚恩來感謝祂。很多時我們看見所發生的事並不美好,但天父卻用這些來教導我們更加去依靠祂!「我們曉得萬事都互相效力、叫愛 神的人得益處、就是按他旨意被召的人。」(羅馬書八28)

以下是感恩事項:

  1. 教會聚會人數增加,有新人來參加聚會。
  2. 幾個月前有一對夫婦因為一些誤會而不返教會,現在他們回來聚會了。
  3. 幼稚園和託兒所都有新的小朋友來讀書。
  4. 一年簽證已做好了。

請為我們的需要代禱:

  1. 新光幼稚園需要兩位老師和一位接待員。舊的接待員被主任揭發偷竊金錢而辭職。她曾接受主,請為她的生命禱告。
  2. 請為波拉(Bora)弟兄禱告,幾年前他是教會敬拜隊成員,但後來沒有來聚會,上星期日他來聚會並和月甜分享了他一些個人的問題。
  3. 前反對黨領袖桑蘭西流亡於國外,計劃11月中回國,請為柬埔寨的和平與秩序禱告。
  4. 約瑟會在10月21日回港看醫生,如証實是小腸氣便會做手術。

多謝你們的代禱和支持。有空請來信,我們可以互相代求。

主內
約瑟,月甜上

 


Dear Family, brothers and sisters in the Lord,

Greetings from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We arrived safely on September 15th! Praise the Lord, we have adjusted well to the weather and life in here quickly. So good to see friends, meet new people and children in the kindergarten. Because Pchum Ben holiday was on 27-29, we had a week off for the kindergarten and nursery. Good that we could rest and did some planning and reading books.

Two weeks before the Pchum Ben, people go to at least seven Buddhist temples to offer food to the dead ancestors. So, the spiritual warfare is very real. However, our God is greater than the evil forces. We are thankful that the Sunday worship was well attended.

October 14th is the Thanksgiving Day for Canada. There are many things we need to be thankful for. Sometimes all thing happened may not be good according to our eyes, but God has His own way to lead and to teach us. The verse in Roman 8:28 is very true. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

The followings are our thanksgiving items:

  • There has been a slight increase of attendance on Sunday worship. Some new faces show up. One couple stopped coming to church several months ago due to personal conflict. They started to come back this month.
  • There are many new children at our kindergarten and nursery.
  • Our retirement visas are approved.

Please pray for our needs:

  • We need to find two more teachers and a new receptionist. The old one left after being caught taking money from our school. Pray that she will find the Lord.
  • Pray for the early morning prayer meeting from Mondays to Fridays at 6:30am. So far there are 2 people. Pray for more will join.
  • Pray for Bora who backslid for several years. Last week he came back to church because of some problems. Pray that God’s word can encourage him.
  • Pray for peace and safety in Cambodia. The outed opposition leader, Sam Rainsy will come back in early November.
  • Joseph will go to Hong Kong to see a doctor to confirm if he has hernia. If so, he will have hernia repair operation.

Thank you for praying! We sure love to hear from you too!

In His service,
Joseph and Liza Ng
