鄧秀珍代禱信2019年3月

親愛的弟兄姊妹平安,

        耶穌說:「潔淨了的不是十個人嗎?那九個在哪裡呢?除了這外族人,再沒有別人回來歸榮耀與神嗎?」路17:17-18

        今早看到上面的經文,就想起上週聽到一位非基督徒的見證,讓我驚訝他願意和我們分享他經歷神蹟的喜悅。他與妻女三人回德國辦理證件,前兩次都沒有成功,眼見不可能約到與官員見面的時間,他信主的親戚建議他向神禱告。之後,果然神蹟性地出現,拿到他們恰恰需要的三個預約時間,而且順利把事情辦完。剛好聽到見證的另一對夫婦也在辦理手續,他們也知道能在短期內得到那些預約安排是非常難的。他們是慕道友,親耳聽到這樣的見證,也不得不讚嘆神的作為!

        另外一位去年已經決志的基督徒,在學業上也經歷一個神蹟,本來不夠資格申請入讀碩士學位,太太為他禱告,最後得以提高他的分數達到申請資格。可惜他並沒有把榮耀歸給神,卻是感謝他的教授。

        前面的「外邦人」經歷神蹟願意回來團契和大家分享神的奇妙作為,可惜我們作為基督徒卻不一定感謝神給我們的恩典。所以,趁我還記得的時候趕快來感謝神在我身上的恩典與作為!感謝神藉著中福團給予我的支持,讓我可以在宣教工場上不用為經濟憂慮。自從16年踏入德國工場,在籌不夠宣教經費的情況下出發,至每三年回美國工作匯報所籌的經費仍然達不到預算的情況之下,中福團不但沒有收取一分錢的行政費,還要不斷的補貼我的不足。若不是神的憐憫與恩典,不知道中福團為何要為我承擔這個擔子!所以,在感謝神的同時,也要感謝中福團的支持!

        因著籌款的不足,雖然FMCD的同工(我們在德國的合作夥伴)多年來曾經向差會提出提高我的工資以應付通貨膨脹,都沒有成功。不過,前兩個星期傳來喜訊,得知中福團向FMCD提出以今年為期一年的加額,這是我都沒有求過的。感謝神的恩典與中福團的付出!也要向支持我的眾教會與弟兄姊妹獻上感恩!

        上次提到的白血病患者,已經順利完成骨髓移植手術,但是身體還是很虛弱,醫生告訴她在這段時間可能會發高燒。果然她就連續兩天高燒,醫生告訴她若繼續發燒,就要把裝在她脖子上的輸液接口拆下來,再找另處安裝。她聽了就害怕,因為這個安裝過程是很痛的,她不想再經歷一次。於是她向神禱告,神也憐憫她,垂聽她的禱告,第三天燒就退了,免去她受痛苦的折磨。這是她笑著向我分享的見證,雖然她還不是基督徒。上週本來已經出院,但是到晚上發燒又住院了。而且現在造血很慢,若不夠就要接受輸血。感恩她勇敢地面對這個病,沒有聽到她發怨言!她母親的精神狀況也好很多!

感恩與代禱事項:

  1. 感恩慕道友經歷神的恩典,讓他的見證也鼓勵其他慕道友!求主施恩,讓他們不是追求經歷神蹟,乃是認識神的救贖,接受救恩!
  2. 感謝神持續的供應,藉著中福團與眾教會和弟兄姊妹的支持,得以在工場事奉!
  3. 感謝神賜予機會服事癌症病人!求主保守她們的身體,有足夠的心靈與體力去面對漫長的康復過程!求主醫治青年人,藉著這個經歷認識神!求主憐憫得了乳癌的年輕姊妹,治療過程已經完成,但是由於住在偏遠的小鎮,一個人面對各樣的挑戰,缺乏心靈上的支持,癌症治療後需要每天往返附近城市的醫院接受心理治療。求主醫治她的全人,讓她有足夠的體力準備病假後上班的日子。
  4. 求主感動德國各地弟兄姊妹報名參加復活節的造就營和青年營!

        感謝主的恩典,超過我們所求所想!

主的使女

Dear brothers and sisters,

        Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Luke 17:17-18

        When I read the above scriptures this morning, I remember a testimony that I heard last week from a non-believer. I was surprised to see that he was willing to share the joy of his experience on God’s miracle. He and his wife and daughter returned to Germany to get a transfer of visa to their new passports. The first two visits to the immigration office failed. After seeing the impossibility to get appointments to meet with the officer in a short time, his aunt suggested to pray to God. Soon after, he got all the three appointments needed for their family to finish the process.  It happened that a couple who was listening was also going through the similar situation. They knew that it was very difficult to get one appointment in such a short time not to mention to get three! So, they were also amazed to hear God’s miraculous work!

        Another new Christian who accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior also experienced a miracle. Originally, he was not qualified to apply for a master degree with his grades. His wife prayed to God and he got the points he needed for applying to the master degree. Unfortunately, he didn’t give praise to God but give thanks to his professors!

        The “foreigner” mentioned above experienced miracle and was willing to come to our fellowship to share God’s wonderful work. However, as Christians, sometimes we might not necessarily give thanks to God for His grace. Therefore, while still remember, I should give thanks to God for His grace upon me! Thank God through CEM’s support for me, I was able to go to the mission field without worrying for my financial support. I set foot to Germany 16 years ago, when there was not sufficient fund raised. Till now, the situation remains the same even though I went back to the States for furlough every 3 years. Under such circumstances, CEM not only does not receive a penny for administration fee but supplies for the deficit. If not out of God’s mercy and grace, why would CEM take up the burden for me. So, I am really thankful to God as well as to CEM for all the supports!

        Because of the deficit in the fund raised for my budget, although FMCD co-workers (our partners in Germany) have been trying to ask CEM to raise my salary due to inflation, they were not successful. However, we got good news two weeks ago. CEM told FMCD to raise my salary just for one year for 2019. I had never asked for this. Thank God for His grace and the sacrifice of CEM! I am also grateful for all the supporting churches and brothers and sisters!

        In my last prayer letter, I mentioned a leukaemia patient. She had a successful bone marrow transplant but her body was still very weak. The doctor told her that she might get high fever during this period. Soon, she got a high fever for two days. The doctor told her that if the fever persisted, he would have to remove the connector installed on her neck and tried to install it some other place. She was afraid to hear that because it was a painful experience that she didn’t want to go through again. Then she prayed to God and He had mercy on her and listened to her prayer. Her fever was gone the next day. She didn’t have to suffer the pain. This was what she told me with a smile on her face although she was not a Christian yet. Last week she was discharged from the hospital but went back again that night due to high fever. Right now, her blood is being made slowly. If it is not enough, she will get some blood transfusion. Grateful that she has a courage to face her illness and I don’t hear her complain. Her mother’s spirit has also improved.

Thanksgiving and prayer items:

  1. Thank God that the non-believer experienced God’s grace and that his testimony would encourage the seekers who heard it. Pray that they will not seek after miracles but seek after God’s redemption and receive God’s salvation!
  2. Thank God for His continuous supply through the support of CEM and churches and brothers and sisters so that I can serve in the mission field!
  3. Thank God for the opportunities to serve cancer patients! Pray that God will keep their bodies so that they will have the spirit and strength to face the long term recovery process! Pray that God will heal the youth and that she may come to know God through this experience! Pray that God will have mercy on the sister who had breast cancer. She finished all cancer treatment. But because of the fact that she lives in a small town and fighting all the challenges by herself, she lacks spiritual support. After cancer treatment, she now goes to a nearby city hospital for psychological treatment. Pray that God will heal her wholly and she will have enough strength to prepare herself to go back to work after her sick leave!
  4. Pray that God will touch the heart of brothers and sisters to apply for the Easter Camp and the Youth Camp!

        Thank God for His grace which is more than we ask for!

Serving Him,
Karen Tang
