蔡柏林、蔡何長樂代禱信2019年7月

近況和感恩

        今年二月我們接到Kamila(幼兒園的老師)車禍喪生的惡耗,崔峰帶領其他老師一同探望她的家人,安慰他們。謝謝許多聽到消息的弟兄姐妹為我們禱告,並且捐助他們。我馬上安排四月趕到吉國,慰問她的家人,並送上你們的愛心捐助。她父親一看見我就不停的流淚,我只能陪著他,直到他安靜下來。他把全部的經過向我陳述,警察收集到鄰近家庭的錄像,明顯的看到酒駕的人與車輛,但是罪犯還在監獄等待審判。吉國的法律,酒駕傷人的刑罰不嚴,可能兩三年就會獲釋。

        長樂去年從吉國回來身體就嚴重不調,不能再與我一起飛去吉國。她看了無數次的醫生復建都無效,只好吃止痛藥減輕身體疼痛,直到現在還是常常背痛、腳痛、頭痛。我只能陪著她作輕微運動,希望身體能慢慢恢復。不幸兩個月前在家的後院又摔了一跤,馬上到急診室照了X光,還好沒有骨折,只是胸部疼痛,可能有淤血,要多休息,更要處處小心,以免再受創。

        因為她的狀況,我只能四月自己去吉國一個月,還好我們兩個兒子都住在家裡,可以有些照應。幼兒園有45個孩子,一切都順利。因著Kamila的事件,老師們都需要輔導,也慢慢恢復正常。

        我又見了許多以前從各地來的年輕宣教士,關懷鼓勵他們。遇見一位克族的弟兄,幾次邀請我去幫助一位從中國來的哈族弟兄,他在哈薩克開辦了一間幼兒園,希望我能幫他們設立一間蒙氏的幼兒園;於是我飛去Astana四天,帶了一些蒙氏教材,有一套是我幾年前準備幫助當地幼兒園的,答應他們以後可以來我們學校實習,並且把其餘的教具帶回去。

        現在越來越多宣教士看到蒙氏的教學理念,可以幫助當地的穆民,與他們建立關係,可以用我們的幼兒園做示範。他們有在吉國、約旦、迪拜等等,願神繼續帶領這些宣教士,加上後面支持的機構,一起把這理念發揚光大。

代禱

  1. 為Kamila的家人禱告,讓他們能認識我們的神。
  2. 為長樂的身體禱告,讓她身心靈都得到醫治。
  3. 崔峰能夠接手幼兒園的重任。
  4. 幼兒園的同工與老師們的身心靈及教學。
  5. 年輕宣教士能夠有堅定的信心,又有足夠的資金。
  6. 有合作夥伴一起建立與擴展幼教事工。

柏林、長樂上

Update & Give Thanks

        In Feb we heard the sad news of Kamila’s death. Peter and our teachers visited her family to comfort them for their loss. Thanks to everyone who heard the news and offered prayers and donations. I decided to travel to Kyrgyzstan to express condolence to Kamila’s family and brought the donations to them. As soon as her father saw me he began to weep uncontrollably. I had to calm him down by sitting with him. He then explained to me the whole incident. Police were able to get the video from the neighboring house camera that captured the accident. The drunk driver was apprehended but is still waiting for trial. In Kyrgyzstan driving under influence of alcohol and accidentally killing someone is not punished severely.

        Christa was still suffering from the long travel back from Kyrgyzstan and cannot go with me again. She has been going through chiropractor adjustments, physical therapies and taking many painkillers to reduce her pain. Even up to now she is still experiencing pain on her back, legs and head. I had to stay with her to make sure her condition does not get worse. Two months before she tripped and fell in our backyard. We went to the emergency room and after many x-rays they determined she did not have cracked ribs but there were internal bruises in the chest area. Praise the Lord that it was nothing major.

        Worrying about her health I can only be away for the month of April. Fortunately, our two sons lived at home and can watch over her and take care of her needs. While in Kyrgyzstan I visited our kindergarten and it was running smoothly. We had regularly 45 children in the classes every day. Teachers are slowly getting over the loss of Kamila. They also need to be counseled. I also met with many young missionaries in Tokmok and Bishkek. They are from nearby countries.

        I met a Kyrgyz brother from China. He has been asking me to help a Kazakh brother from China and he started a kindergarten in Kazakhstan. After talking to this Kazakh brother on the phone I decided to travel to Astana to help him with Montessori method. I flew to Astana for 4 days and brought him a suitcase full of Montessori teaching material I purchased from China. The children loved it. In the future he and his teachers can come to our kindergarten to learn the Montessori method and also take back the rest of the material that I could not bring.

        More and more Christians are seeing the benefit of using this method to reach the Muslim families and also to establish themselves in the Muslim world. Right now a group of people are getting together to help missionaries in many Muslim countries to establish Montessori kindergartens as a way of approaching Muslims. Our kindergarten will be used as a model for training and example. Some of them are from Kyrgyzstan, Jordan, Dubai, etc. May God lead them with backings from mission organizations to expand the ministry.

Prayer Requests

  1. Please pray for Kamila’s family that they will come to know our God.
  2. Pray for Christa’s health that she will be healed physically, mentally and spiritually.
  3. Peter can take on the responsibility of the kindergarten.
  4. Pray for our staff and teachers in the kindergarten.
  5. Many young missionaries from the neighboring countries to stay firm and to have adequate funding.
  6. Bring partners to continue develop and expand the kindergarten ministry.

John & Christa
