吳約瑟、黃月甜宣教士代禱信51(2017年12月)

主內弟兄姊妹們平安:

        您們好!聖誕節快到了,柬埔寨沒有聖誕節公眾假期,但商店和百貨公司已用聖誕節為題推銷貨品。「這一切的事成就,是要應驗主藉先知所說的話說:『必有童女懷孕生子,人要稱他的名為以馬內利(翻出來就是「神與我們同在」)。』」(馬太福音一22-23)但願柬埔寨的人能明白聖誕節的意義,是耶穌放下了祂在天上的榮耀,降卑成為人,生在馬槽,為了叫神能與我們同在。

        我們已回金邊一個月,再次適應這裡炎熱的天氣和生活節奏。活石堂的人數有些微上升,感謝主!我們仍需要一位全時間的本地同工來作牧者。現在有幾位來聚會的想參加水禮,請為他們禱告。

        九月份有十多名小朋友要升讀小學而離開幼稚園,我們捨不得他們離去,但願他們在新的學校有良好的適應。託兒所的小朋友少了,聞說在我們託兒所附近開了一間學校,學費比我們便宜。我們會印製幼稚園和託兒所的新宣傳單。

感恩事項:
– 教會有新人來聚會。
– 青年人成立了足球小組。
– 女兒欣義十二月底在柬埔寨結婚,計劃明年三月去加拿大定居。
– 幼稚園已請到一位煮飯的嬸嬸。

求恩事項:
– 教會在12月17日舉行聖誕節慶祝,盼望每人能帶一位朋友來參加,並能明白聖誕的意義。
– 幼稚園會在12月22日星期五放學後舉行聖誕慶祝,盼望家長們能來參加,並明白聖誕的意義。
– 請記念教會的註冊申請。
– 明年一月會有水禮班。
– 幼稚園的招待員Srey Leak上星期接受了主,為她的靈命成長禱告。

        多謝您們在禱告上成為我們的伙伴,使我們得著支持和鼓勵。敬祝聖誕節,新年蒙福,與天父更親近!

主內
約瑟,月甜上

Dear friends and family,

        Greetings from Cambodia! Christmas season is around the corner. The malls and shops are advertising their goods. Let us not forget the real meaning of Christmas! ‘So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”’ (Matthew 1:22-23) Our Saviour Jesus’ birth is the meaning of Christmas.

        We have been back to Phnom Penh for about one month. Getting adjusted to the hot weather and way of life here. Praise God everything is well with living Stone Church. The members still come every Sunday and there is a slight increase of people coming to church. God is good and faithful. We are still looking for a full-time pastor preferably a male. About 4-5 people attend our church are asking about the baptismal service because they have decided to follow Jesus.

        In September about 10 students left our Sonlight Kindergarten and went to grade school. We miss them and pray that they can adjust well to their new schools. There is a drop of students and toddlers in our nursery due to various reasons. We heard that there are many schools opened near us and their tuition fee is cheaper than ours. We are planning to make new pamphlets for promotion.

        Thank you so much for caring and praying for us. Your partnership is very important in our ministry here in Cambodia. Please continue to remember our praise and prayer items.

Praise items:

  • A slight increase of people coming to our church.
  • Lydia, our youngest daughter, is going to get married in Cambodia at the end of this month. They will move to Canada in March.
  • We have found a new cook at our school.

Prayer items:

  • Christmas program at church is on December 17 this year. The members are encouraged to bring 1 non-Christian friend to come. Pray that they will know the meaning of Christmas.
  • After school on December 22, we will have a Christmas celebration for Sonlight Kindergarten. Please pray that the parents know about our school and the real meaning of Christmas.
  • We are still working on the church registration.
  • A baptismal class is planned for four people coming to our church in January 2018.
  • Pray for Srey Leak, the school’s receptionist, will grow spiritually. She received Jesus few weeks ago during a Bible study.
  • Lydia and Patrick’s job hunting in Canada.

        Wish you a blessed Christmas and a fruitful New Year!

In His service,
Joseph and Liza
