吳約瑟、黃月甜宣教士代禱信50(2017年10月)

親愛的親友們:

        主內平安!時間過得真快,我們已完成第四個在柬埔寨的宣教任期(每個任期為三年)。原訂八月先到加拿大之後回香港工作匯報,但在加拿大時約瑟生病了。因為我們沒有家庭醫生,所以要進急診室,約瑟在醫院住了15天。出院回家休息時,體力未能充份復原,醫生建議取消九月回港的行程。天父真好,在這段等候時間,祂醫治,安慰我們。感恩有機會多點時間與兒子、媳婦和孫兒們相處,更認識他們不同的需要,好讓我們知道怎樣為他們代禱。很感激及多謝大家的關心和代禱!

        回想這十多年的日子,我們體會到天父真好。「…你們當恆久忍耐…看哪,農夫等待著田地裡寶貴的果實,為此恆久忍耐,直到果實得著秋雨春雨。」(雅5:7)曉得信心及忍耐在事奉神的路上是很重要的。我們已看見有些果子,教會的同工可以起來帶領教會,會友起來帶領敬拜,看重教會生活;一同禱告、探訪、傳福音。

        神使用短宣隊的一些專業老師來訓練新光幼稚園的老師,老師們開始認真的去備課,有信心和專注去教導每一課題。幾年前鄰居們叫我們的幼稚園為「耶穌學校」,但現在他們說:「耶穌學校好!」我們在八月離開金邊時,幼稚園有學生64名,九月時有學生升讀一年級;有媬姆的三名兒女去了一間有直屬小學的學校,現在剩下50多名幼稚園學生,幼兒院有40名小孩。感謝天父在過去七年的帶領和祝福。

        我們也要感謝大家在各方面的支持。請繼續為我們感恩和禱告:

感恩事項:

  1. 住在女生宿舍的學生們比以前更專心學道和尋求真理。
  2. 多年來教會漏水的問題已得解決。
  3. 女兒欣義已訂婚,會在年尾或明年頭結婚。
  4. 約瑟康復進程理想,可以在十一月回金邊。
  5. 八月在我們未離開金邊時,幼稚園聘請新的行政主任,她有責任感及有原則,和同工們有好的相處。
  6. 活石堂組織足球隊並取名為「活青」,在星期日青年團後練習。有新的青年人參加,是外展的機會。

禱告事項:

  1. 教會及幼稚園的同工能同心事奉和能互相幫助。
  2. 為青少年足球隊能成為外展的渠道。
  3. 為我們要辦理柬埔寨的工作證。
  4. 柬埔寨明年大選,請記念各政黨能有言論自由。

        多謝你們的代禱和支持,祝以馬內利!

約瑟,月甜上

Dear friends and family,

        Greetings! Time has gone by super-fast. We finished our 4th term of mission service in Cambodia. We began our three-month home assignment in August 10 to November 10 in Canada and Hong Kong. We went to Canada to spend time with our family and friends in August. Joseph got sick; we have no family doctor so he had to go to the emergency and was hospitalized for 15 days. The doctor recommended resting at home before we go back to Hong Kong. God is good, He has healed and encouraged us. We are grateful that we could spend quality time with our two sons and families. We can understand their needs and pray for them specially. Thank you so much for your concerns and prayers.

        As we contemplate at what we have done during all these years, a verse from James 5:7 “Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it, until it receives the early and late rain.” Patience and trust are the keys in our ministry for God. Now we’re beginning to see some fruits in our church and school. In our church, the staff can stand up and lead the church and the church members are leading worship, coming to prayer meeting and going out to witness to others. We can see God’s wonderful work among us. Our staff are more committed and keener to study God’s word.

        In our school with the professional and training of the short-term mission groups; our teachers have started to write meaningful lesson plans. They are more confident and focusing on the teaching the lessons.

        The neighbors call our school the “Jesus’ School” and they spread the news that the “Jesus’ School” is good. Before we left Cambodia, we had 64 children in the kindergarten. Now some of them left for first grade and 3 children of our nannies went to another school with primary and secondary schools. Now we have about 50 students. There are 40 toddlers in the nursery. Praise God for leading, blessing and building our team.

        Thank you for supporting us through these years in different ways. Really appreciate that. Please continue to give thanks to God and pray for us.

Praise items:

  1. The ladies at our student dorm are more interested in studying the word of God.
  2. Water leaking in the church building was fixed and repair was done to the water damaged ceiling. The repair work had been done over many years and finally there is no more leaking.
  3. Lydia our youngest daughter was engaged in June and will get married next year.
  4. The kindergarten has a new administrator; she is very capable of her role.

Prayer items:

  1. Pray for the staff of our church and kindergarten that they can work together as a team and relate to one another as a family.
  2. Pray for the football team that it can become an outreach to young people.
  3. Pray for applying of work permit for us as foreign workers.

        Thanks for praying and supporting us!

In His blessed hope,
Joseph and Liza
