鄧秀珍代禱信2019年10月

親愛的弟兄姊妹平安,

        「你們趁著有光,要信從這光,使你們成為光明之子。」約翰福音12:36

        感謝 神的恩典,雖然沒有建立以廣東話為主的查經班,剛來德國的香港弟兄卻開放他的家,建立一個以弟兄為主的普通話查經班。這群弟兄對福音事工都很有負擔。八月底有多個單位在法蘭克福市中心舉辦了第一屆中國節,有弟兄邀請教會弟兄姊妹去發福音小冊子,但是回應不是很好,他也就邀請我去。雖然我當天要去吉森服事,但我也邀請了香港弟兄一起參與。那位弟兄感覺良好,又邀請我們第二天再去。第二天,吉森團契有些弟兄姊妹去看其中一位姊妹的女兒表演,就遇見我們。有一位姊妹知道我們去的目的,便自告奮勇要加入我們的隊伍。後來她分享說發小冊時並不容易。但是弟兄卻感受到兩個人去發單張的力量,沒有那麼害怕,別人看我們也比較有禮貌。

        最近帶了兩位香港弟兄去法蘭克福的中文學校,看看我們的弟兄姊妹在那裡擺書攤,發中信刊物。那天有四位弟兄,他們就兩個兩個出去在校園分發。其中一位香港弟兄,因為他是唯一已婚和有孩子的父親,就很容易與一些家長交談起來,有一位父親還主動要我的WhatsApp。

        吉森團契已經開始了迎新活動,法蘭克福的弟兄們也一起參與。第一次舉辦郊遊活動,參觀了附近的小城,來了五名新生,還有舊生四人,加上弟兄姊妹及小孩共三十多人,大家都玩得很開心。上週六團契舉辦法律講座,有中國學生會主動跟我們的負責人商量,把當天參加學生會活動的新生帶去團契吃晚飯。我們樂意接待這麼多新人,因為我們自己邀請都不會有三十人來。感謝主,他們吃完飯還是全部留下來聽講座。會長曾經參加過我們辦的活動,鼓勵學生以後都可以參加我們的活動。結束後,我們一起感恩,讚美神奇妙的作為!接下來兩週還有迎新的活動。

        感恩神呼召教會的弟兄姊妹走上全時間的事奉,有一位姊妹修了一些密集課程,現在住校上最後兩年的課程。一位弟兄念完哲學博士,剛開始上德國的神學院課程,而他的學兄則於上週畢業。感恩他邀請我參加神學院畢業典禮的晚餐,因為他父母都無法出席。而有兩位弟兄為了支持他,甘願買票參加他的慶典,就像他的家人一樣,讓人感動。這位弟兄已加入內地會差會,先在德國教會的青少年部學習。

感恩與代禱事項:

  1. 感恩兩位Aschaffenburg團契的姊妹已經接受洗禮!陪伴她們的姊妹下週就要回國,求主保守她們的信心,靈命繼續成長!
  2. 感恩在弟兄家建立一個查經班,弟兄們都願意參與福音事工,建立一個團隊,支援教會和吉森的福音工作!
  3. 感謝神的帶領,讓團契的迎新活動可以接觸那麼多新生!有一位博士後的先生參加了第一次的郊遊,就很高興帶妻子參加上週活動,他們都感覺良好!求主感動新生們繼續來參加團契的活動,認識真神!
  4. 感謝神,透過吉森團契負責學生組的姊妹的愛心關懷,幫助一位不怎麼來團契的學生,最近帶領她接受主的救恩!求主保守她的信心,認識更多基要真理!
  5. 感謝神呼召教會三位弟兄姊妹出來接受神學裝備,準備全時間事奉 神!求主帶領他們的學習!求主帶領剛畢業的弟兄,藉著加入差會,更多了解宣教的事工,成為中、德方面的橋樑,幫助這兩種語言的教會!
  6. 進入秋天,經常陰天下雨。求主保守弟兄姊妹和學生,不致有抑鬱的心情!

        感謝你們的記念代禱!願主堅立你們手所作的工!

主的使女

Dear brothers and sisters,

        “Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” John 12:36

        Thank God for His grace! Even though we didn’t establish a Cantonese speaking bible study group, we established one consisting of mainly brothers instead because the HK brother opened his home. This group of brothers has a heart to serve in evangelism. Many organizations sponsored the first China Festival in Frankfurt on the last weekend of August. One of the brothers invited brothers and sisters from his student fellowship to go and distribute some booklets. But the response was not good. So, the brother asked me to go even though I had to go to Giessen that afternoon.  I also invited the HK brother to go. That brother felt good about this action. He invited us to go again the next day. We met some of the brothers and sisters from Giessen fellowship the next day. They were waiting for one of the sister’s daughter to perform on stage. After learning what we were doing there, a sister volunteered to join us. Later she shared that it was not easy just to distribute the booklets. But the brother felt the power of two people because he was bolder and people would treat us more politely.

        Recently, I brought the two HK brothers to the Chinese learning school in Frankfurt. We had a book stand there distributing some Chinese Today. There were 4 brothers and they went out two by two. One of the HK brothers was the only one who was married and has two sons. So he could easily start off a conversation with the parent waiting there. One father even asked us to give him our WhatsApp.

        Giessen Fellowship has started a series of welcome new student program. Some of our brothers from Frankfurt went to support the events. There were 5 new and 4 old students who joined us for a day trip to a nearby city a week ago. Together with children, we had more than 30 people and enjoyed the trip. Last Saturday was our lecture on German general laws. The chairman of the Chinese Student Association asked if he could bring new students to our fellowship for dinner after their activity. We were glad to receive them because we could not have invited 30 new students ourselves. Thank God that they all stayed to listen to the lecture. The chairman had participated in some of our events in the past so he encouraged the students to join our up-coming activities. At the end of the day, we were so thankful to praise God’s wonderful work! There will be two more welcome new student events.

        Thank God for calling our church’s brothers and sister for full time ministry! After taking some extension courses, our sister went to study for her last two years of seminary. A brother just started his studies in a German seminary after he graduated from his PhD degree in philosophy. Another brother just graduated from the same seminary last week. I was grateful that he invited me to his graduation dinner since his parents were not able to attend. It was touching to see that two brothers were willing to pay for the dinner’s tickets in order to support this brother like his family. The brother joined OMF and is now serving in the Youth Ministry in a German church.

Thanksgiving and prayer items:

  1. Thank God for the two sisters from Aschaffenburg Fellowship who just got baptized! The sister who accompanied them for the last two months will return to China. Pray that God will keep their faith and grow spiritually!
  2. Thank God for establishing a new bible study group in a brother’s home! The brothers are willing to participate in evangelism to support our church and Giessen’s gospel events.
  3. Thank God for leading so many new students to the welcome new student activities! A husband of a post-doctorate joined our day trip. He was very happy to bring his wife to our last week’s activity. They were very happy to have come. Pray that God will touch the heart of these students to participate in our future activities in order to know Christ!
  4. Thank God for the loving care of our sister who is responsible for Giessen’s student group! Because of her care and help, a student who doesn’t come to our bible study group often, came to accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior! Pray that God will keep her faith and she will learn more basic truth!
  5. Thank God for calling 2 brothers and a sister to equip themselves for full time ministry! Pray that God will bless their study! Pray that God will lead the brother who just graduated from seminary will learn more about mission and will be a bridge between Chinese and German churches!
  6. Fall has come with rainy and gloomy days. Pray that God will keep brothers and sisters and students from having depressing emotions!

        Thank you for remembering us in your prayers!
        May God establish the work of your hands!

Serving Him,
Karen Tang
