吳約瑟、吳黃月甜代禱信(64)2020年3月

親愛的親友及主內兄姊們平安:

        從柬埔寨向您們問安!當我們從新聞報導中看到世界上由於人為或自然災害,無數的生命和動物因為新冠狀肺炎病毒、山火、地震、火山爆發等影響,都叫我們的心傷痛。這些事的發生,叫我們想起天父的話:「倘有禍患臨到我們、或刀兵災殃、或瘟疫饑荒、我們在急難的時候、站在這殿前向你呼求、你必垂聽而拯救.因為你的名在這殿裡。」(代下20:9)

        因為新冠狀肺炎病毒引起的疫情,我們原先計劃二月在香港工作匯報一個月的行程取消。我們在金邊逗留至3月初才去加拿大,這樣月甜有多些時間訓練幼稚園一位新老師。我們原先買了金邊去香港和香港經上海去加拿大的機票,改為金邊經韓國去加拿大的機票。旅行社有消息來說原先的機票因航班取消而退款,所退回的剛是另買機票的錢。可見天父為我們預備生活所需,感謝祂。

        我們今次回加拿大首先停留在溫哥華,與關心我們的教會和信徒分享柬埔寨的需要,並與以前神學院的同學團聚,然後返回卡加利。由今年四月開始,我們在柬埔寨宣教工場換了新的角色。我們會以「事工顧問」的身份,繼續柬埔寨的宣教事奉。金邊活石堂男同工——波拿——在教會事奉只有一年時間,需要督導和指引。新光幼稚園的老師和同工,仍需要帶領和幫助。我們願意成為同工們的「導師、師傅」(Mentor),以致他們成熟幹練,能接過棒子,火炬相傳。我們在加拿大停留之後,會返回柬埔寨幫助他們,因醫療等情況,我們需要兩地往來走動。

        請您們繼續禱告和經濟支持我們的事奉。以下是我們的感恩和求恩的事項:

感恩事項:

  1. 1月1日的水禮有五人參加,天父將得救的人加給我們。
  2. 開始了兩星期一次在星期六晚年青人相聚和祈禱。
  3. 在2月9和16日的青年團契中用聖經的真理教導戀愛、婚姻和家庭的觀念。
  4. 2月18日同工開會時聖靈工作,同工們開放自己傾談,互相認罪,禱告。
  5. 波拿傳道願意負責教會早禱會。
  6. 兒童主日學多了一位老師。

求恩事項:

  1. 幼稚園請了一位新老師負責教一小班有特別需要的學生,其中有些輕微阿斯伯格綜合症症狀。
  2. 主日崇拜後有一新開的婦女查經班。
  3. 郵輪威士特丹號來柬埔寨時沒有肺炎病患者,但郵輪去到馬來西亞則發現一位病患者。願主保守和讓人在無助中尋求真神。
  4. 請為在葛福臨佈道會信耶穌的Seyha和Mey禱告,願他們能生命成長。

        多謝你們的禱告和支持。我們也喜歡收到你們的消息,可以互相代求。

主內                        
約瑟,月甜上

Dear Family and friends,

        Greetings from Cambodia! As we look around what has been happening in the world, our hearts are saddened to see the man-made or natural disasters. We feel so sorry to the loss of lives and their families, the loss of millions of animals and properties due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, forest fires, earthquakes, floods, volcanoes etc. These are bringing we Christians around the world to humble ourselves to cry out to God for His mercy and protection. “If calamity comes upon us, whether the sword of judgment, or plague or famine, we will stand in your presence before this temple that bears your Name and will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us.” (2Chronicles 20:9)

        Because of the Coronavirus outbreak in Hong Kong our furlough in February was cancelled. We decided to stay in Phnom Penh until early March so that Liza can help the new teacher at our kindergarten.  We bought new tickets flying from Phnom Penh to Vancouver via Seoul.  Our travel agency called to inform that our flights from Phnom Penh to Hong Kong, Vancouver via Shanghai are cancelled by the airlines. The airlines gave us refund which is the amount we paid for our new route. Our heavenly Father takes care of our financial need!

        We left for Canada on March 7th via Seoul Korea, then to Vancouver where we will have a reunion of Bible school classmates, sharing the needs of Cambodia. Finally, we returned home in Calgary on March 15th.   From April 2020, we will take a new role as “Ministry Advisor” in our mission field.  Pastor Phalla, church minister of our Livingstone Christian Church in Phnom Penh, has been working in the church for only 1 year, so he needs more guidance.  Our teachers and clerical staff in our Sonlight Kindergarten are lacking experience that they need help and support.  We will serve as their MENTORS that they may be well equipped in faith and love for Christian leadership. The baton shall be passed to the local Christian leadership for His glory.  We will stay in Canada for a short period, and then we will return to Phnom Penh for His service.  Due to medical cares, we will go often between Canada, Hong Kong and Phnom Penh.

        Thank you so much for supporting us through different ways especially your prayers and care. And we covet your continual prayers and financial support.

        Here are our praises and prayers for these two months.

Praise items:

  • There were 5 people baptized on January 1st.
  • Every other Saturday a group of young people get together and pray.
  • On February 9th and 16th during youth group we learn about biblical dating and marriage.
  • 1 more Sunday School teacher added to our team.
  • The Holy Spirit was working among our staff meeting on February 18th that our staff opened their hearts and talked. We asked for forgiveness and prayed together.
  • Pastor Phalla is willing to lead the morning prayer meeting at church.

Prayer items:

  • We hired a new teacher for a small class of students who need special attention, and some have symptoms of Asperger.
  • A lady Bible study group has been formed after Sunday service.
  • The coronavirus would be under controlled, the panic and helpless people will seek the only true God.
  • For Seyha and Mey who received Jesus Christ at the Franklin Graham evangelistic meeting that they will grow spiritually.

        Thank you very much.  We would like to hear from you. Let us know if you have anything that we can pray for you.

In His service,                
Joseph and Liza Ng
