吳約瑟、黃月甜宣教士代禱信47(2016年12月)

親愛的親友平安,

聖誕節快到了,每當我們慶祝這日子時都想到“神愛世人,甚至賜下他的獨生子,好讓所有信他的人不至於滅亡,反得永恆的生命”(約翰福音 3:16)

2016年即將結束,回顧過去一年的恩典,我們對2017年的來臨充滿了盼望。今年的上半年曾面對一些挑戰,域式傳道在聖經學院畢業便離職,幼稚園老師也有變動。但天父是信實的,幫助我們解決問題並給我們成長的機會。“神阿、我曾求告你、因為你必應允我.求你向我側耳、聽我的言語。” (詩篇17:6)

12月10日星期六在教會舉行了第一個婚禮。幼稚園的行政色妮布(Srey Pov)姊妹跟溫拿勒(Vanarath)弟兄結婚。很多親友來參加這個婚禮,願主祝福這對新人。第二天星期日有兩母女來參加教會崇拜,願她們在主的話語中成長。

請繼續為我們禱告:

感恩事項:

  • 這年有好的身體,主賜下健康力量來事奉祂。
  • 今年有兩位大學生入住女生宿舍。
  • 女童色妮力(Srey Neat)今年13歲,是住在貧民區的主日學生。四個多月前患病,不能呼吸,手和腳都不能動。現在可以把手舉起和腳可移動少許,但仍需用氧氣機幫助呼吸。
  • 森能(Samnang)是個四個月大的男嬰,出生時患有唇裂和腭裂。兩星期前已經做了唇裂手術,飲奶時可用普通奶咀。腭裂手術可能要等他長到十個月或一歲時才可進行。
  • 新光幼稚園在鄰居有好名聲,他們說“耶穌學校”好。十二月有差不多六十位小朋友而托兒所有四十多位幼兒。
  • 約瑟在金邊聖經學院教一年級“靈命進深”Christian Spiritual Development,有十三位同學。今年是第二次教,原來教學相長,在課材方面比去年有更深了解。

禱告事項:

  • 在教會註冊的過程中,教會物業企名人和教會註冊的領袖要去區長面前簽名並由他打印證明在區內已註冊,然後再提交這文件去宗教局申請註冊。教會的註冊因明年柬埔寨的普選而在進度上有影響,因為區長要外出在選民登記和其他事務常不在辦公室。請記念。
  • 教會需要全時間牧者一名,願主帶領有呼召的傳道來作教會的領袖。
  • 教會聖誕慶祝在二十五日的主日崇拜中舉行。請記念預備的過程,邀請鄰居和親友參加代禱。
  • 青年團會在明年一月改在星期日下午三時舉行。請記念帶領這事工的愛心姊妹,讓這團契能牧養年青的一代。
  • 今年男生宿舍因不同的困難關閉,主若願意,教會計劃再開展男大學生宿舍的事工。

多謝您們的支持和代禱,祝聖誕快樂,新年蒙恩。

主內,
約瑟,月甜上

Dear friends and family,

 

Christmas is coming around the corner. As we celebrate together with our loved ones let us not forget that Christ is the real reason for the season. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

The year of 2016 will come to an end soon. There are so much we reflect on the grace of God in our lives and the hope we have in 2017. The first part of 2016 was rather challenging for us but with God’s help we could resolve the issues one by one. God is always faithful to help when we cry out to Him. “I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.” (Psalm 17:6)

On December 10th, there was the first wedding in our church. Srey Pov, the administrator of our kindergarten married Vanarath who is the brother of Udom, a part time worker of our church. It was a beautiful Christian wedding. Many visitors attended the wedding. On Sunday, the next day, a mother and daughter attended our church. Please pray that their faith will build on the word of God.

Please continue to lift our praise and prayer items to God. Thank you!

 

Praise Items:

  • The strength and health for us to serve Him.
  • There are two new university students in our lady’s dorm.
  • Srey Neat, a thirteen years old girl attended our Sunday school before. She lives in squatters’ area in our church neighborhood. When she got sick four months ago, she could not breathe by herself and could not move her arms and legs. Now she can move her hands and her leg a little bit.
  • Samnang, a four-month-old baby boy, has cleft lips and palate. Two weeks ago, the doctor has sewed up the lips and he can drink from milk bottle normally. He looks beautiful now. As for the cleft palate, he should wait till he is bigger, perhaps 1 year old.
  • The Sonlight Kindergarten has good reputation in our community. Some of the neighbors’ comment on us saying that the “‘Jesus’ school is good.” This month we have close to 60 children and over 40 toddlers.
  • Joseph enjoys teaching “Christian Spiritual Development” at the Phnom Penh Bible School. His class has 13 students.

Prayer Items:

  • We are still working on the church registration. There will be election in Cambodia next year. One of the procedures is to have the Sangkat (district) chief signing papers with the ones who signed legal paper of the property of our building, but he is busy with registration of voters and not at the office.
  • Provision of a full-time pastor in God’s timing. Pray that the Lord will lead a person with a clear call to ministry.
  • Youth fellowship will be changed to Sunday afternoon at 3 pm starting January 2017. Pray that our young people’s Christmas celebration may be a good time to reach out to young people. Please remember Ai Xin who is the leader of this project.
  • Our church will celebrate Christmas on December 25. Pray for the preparation and promotion of the programs.
  • College student dorm for men is closed this year. Pray that we can reopen the dorm in the future.

Thank you very much for your support in many ways, especially your prayers for us!

Merry Christmas and a blessed and fruitful New year!

In Christ,
Joseph and Liza
