吳約瑟、黃月甜宣教士代禱信49(2017年6月)

親愛的主內兄姊們:

主內平安!當我們從新聞報導看見世上正在發生恐佈份子的槍殺襲擊,炸彈爆炸,不義之事奪去許多無辜的生命,全世界政治動盪都令人驚懼,無助。但感謝主我們信耶穌的人有平安及永生的確據。

五月十日是教會快樂的日子!那天有九位年青人在湄公河邊受洗加入主的名下。大清早我們一行八十多人浩浩蕩蕩乘坐麵包車、車子、三輪車和摩托車去目的地。他們大多數是教會會友,有些是朋友及鄰居。這天是九位青年人值得記念的日子,他們也成為未信朋友的見證。水禮之後有午餐及水上活動時間;大家盡情玩水、划船及撈蛤。有些姊妹則坐在一起和一位新朋友分享天父在她們身上的作為(水禮之後我們有機會探訪她,她說神是好的,但她因丈夫不信而未能接受主)。當天我們玩得開心,各人懷著愉快的心情回家。

我們在五月初參加在馬來西亞檳城舉行的「天父之愛」聚會。這研討聚會的主旨是叫我們更認識天父的愛是何等長濶高深,祂的大愛能醫治我們過去所受的傷害。這醫治的過程是由「在父懷裡的那位獨生子——神,他將神表明了出來。」(約一18)這節聖經清楚地說耶穌:1. 是天父的獨生子;2. 又是神。因此福音的中心是天父的愛,是由祂的愛子「道」成了肉身,從天上降世並將「天父」表明出來。

六月四日那天在柬埔寨有全國鄉區理事會選舉,選票最高的兩大黨是人民黨和救國黨。初部點票顯示人民黨領先。這次選舉共有12政黨參選,結果人民黨得1,163席,救國黨得482席,比上次選舉多了442席。國家聯合黨得1席,而其餘的黨沒足夠票數未得席位。感恩的是這次選舉能平安和平靜地過去。請為柬埔寨的政黨能同心合力為人民服務,並帶來廉潔和公正的社會禱告。

八月初我們會作工作匯報三個月,其中一個月在加拿大,兩個月在香港。高興有機會在加拿大探望約瑟93歲的母親,兩個兒子、兒婦和四個孫子。女兒欣義和她的未婚夫也會去見我們的家人。您們的支持激勵我們繼續在工場宣教,謝謝。請繼續記念我們:

讚美事項:

  • 有九位青年人接受水禮跟隨耶穌。
  • 在6月4日的鄉區理事會選舉能順利舉行。
  • 教會多年來漏水問題看來已解決了。
  • 女兒欣義在6月4日訂婚,他們計劃在明年結婚。

代禱事項:

  • 為九位受浸的青年人之靈命成長,在門訓班和真道探索中認識天父的心及真理。
  • 教會旁邊的路面因車多行走,已破裂需要維修,求天父叫這修理工程能順利進行和路面能堅固耐用。
  • 七月有香港神學生來實習一個月,請為我們能在事奉中一同學習來禱告。
  • 我們工作匯報前需要安排教會及幼稚園老師,媬姆和職員工作。幼稚園的主任會在八月放產假三個月。

謝謝您們,如有代禱或分享事項請聯絡,好讓我們一起去靠近天父!

主內
約瑟,月甜上

Dear friends and family,

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus!  Looking around the world we are saddened to see what have been happening with terrorist attacks, shootings, killings, political scandals and others.  Praise God as Christians we have peace and assurance in Christ Jesus.

May 10th is a big day for our church; we had 9 young people baptized at Mekong River.  Early in the morning we rode on vans, car and motorcycles to the site.  With church members, friends and neighbors we had close to 80 people joining.  It is a memorable day for those young people who have decided to follow Jesus Christ.  Also it is a witness to those friends who do not know God.  It is great to see them have fun playing in the water, rowing the boat and catching clams.  Some ladies shared how God has been working in their lives to one unbeliever.  Even though she did not make a decision yet but she knows God is good and cares for us. We visited her at her home once and she understands and believes what the Bible says, but can’t make a decision because of her family’s belief.  We all enjoyed the day very much and everyone went home happily.

Another highlight of these few months is to attend the Fatherheart Ministries A School in Penang, Malaysia from April 30 – May 6.  This is a worldwide ministry that focuses on teaching the heart of our heavenly Father whose love is wider, deeper and higher than we can imagine.  If we are touched by our Father’s love, we can love others more.

It’s less than 2 months that we will go on furlough.  Thank you for serving our great Father with us through your support in different ways.  We are forever grateful to God who calls us to serve the Khmer people, and also to all of you who support and remember us faithfully throughout these years.  Please continue to praise God and Pray for us:

Praise items:

  • There are 9 young people who were baptized recently.
  • The district commune election went smoothly on June 4th.
  • The problem of water leaking in our church for years seems to be fixed now.
  • Our youngest, Lydia was engaged to Patrick Ramsing; they are planning their wedding in 2018.
  • We are considerably healthy with only minor old aged problems

Prayer items:

  • The spiritual growth of the young people who were baptized in May. Pray that they can learn more from the weekly discipleship class every Sunday.
  • The road on the side of our church needs to be paved again. The traffic is heavy now around our church so the road is broken.
  • In July we will take in a seminary intern for a month. Please pray we’ll have a great time of learning together.  She will mostly involve in teacher’s training and start an English class for young people as an outreach program.
  • Please pray for our preparation for our furlough – to arrange both the staff of our church and school to take over our responsibilities.

Thank you so very much!  We’d love to hear from you; let us know how we can pray for you.

In our Father’s love,
Joe and Liza Ng
