鄧秀珍代禱信2019年8月

親愛的弟兄姊妹平安,

        那落在好土裡的,就是人聽了道,持守在誠實善良的心裡,並且忍耐着結實。路8:15

        主耶穌教導我們忍耐著結實。我們終於看到亞沙芬堡查經班的兩位慕道友,經過8-9年後,願意接受主成為她們個人的救主,並願意接受水禮。促成她們作這決定的,還要歸功給在她們面前有美好見證的姊妹。這位姊妹已經回國居住,但是假期必定回來。這次回來因為等著要帶兒子去美國讀書,逗留的時間比較長,所以有更多的時間與兩位姊妹交談,鼓勵她們接受主恩。

        最近接觸了一些情緒比較消極和負面的人:

        三星期前,教會的師母從台灣發來信息,叫我馬上聯絡一位姊妹,因為她說了些活著沒意思的話,怕她出什麼問題。我趕緊聯絡她,讓她來我家住,了解她的情況,照顧她,免得她做出不應該做的事。因為她剛信主,面對各方的壓力,又看不見神的帶領,就很失望。天天陪著她、鼓勵她的日子還好,可是當我出外過夜一晚,回來又看到她低落的情緒。求主施恩格外扶持她。

        最近一位姊妹突然有感動,想起要聯絡一位舊員工,經過溝通,得知她受了一個很大的打擊,醫生告知她得了末期癌症。那時候她在中國,聽到消息後,馬上回來醫治。因為姊妹陪她去看醫生,姊妹的女兒也幫忙辦理一些手續,當姊妹邀請她參加教會的福音講座時,她就答應了。雖然是科學與信仰的講座,對於一位做餐館業的人是聽不懂的,但是一句話卻深入她腦海中,就是:「神是創造宇宙的真神」。上週三查經聚會,姊妹邀請她來,她也願意參加。姊妹便請我去接送她,在路上她提到有人也邀請她去觀音廟,她也去了。但是她覺得參加我們的聚會比較聽得進去,加上弟兄姊妹的分享和氣氛都很好,回程時她還跟我分享她的感恩。前天姊妹的丈夫又去陪她看醫生,幫忙翻譯。看完醫生後,弟兄帶她回家,給她看一位傳道人的講道視頻,由於那位傳道人是她的同鄉,感覺特別親切,覺得他講得很好。

        香港近期發生的動盪,也影響在海外的香港人,特別是年輕人。由於背景不一樣,有時與國內的人討論起來,就會意見不合,情緒激動。一位在學的弟兄很關注香港發生的事件,情緒也受影響。他在社交網絡上認識了好些受香港事件影響的弟兄姊妹,便建立一個群組,邀請大家為香港禱告。作為他的牧者,我也加入這些年輕人的群組,給他有些支持。因為我們對香港愛莫能助,反而激發我們的,就是更努力的去傳福音。感恩有一位香港弟兄外派來德工作幾年,因為他有心福音工作,願意在選擇公司的住處時,選了住在教會附近,以便開放他的家聚會。因此,我們向神禱告,準備開始一個以年輕人為主的廣東話查經班。

感恩與代禱事項:

  1. 感謝聖靈的感動,讓兩位慕道友終於接受耶穌基督為她們的救主!求主堅固她們的信心,充滿喜樂的心跟隨主!
  2. 感謝主讓我有能力陪伴失去盼望的姊妹,藉著禱告鼓勵,看到神一步一步帶領她,當她聽到多人的見證之後,她也願意上洗禮班!
  3. 求主醫治得癌症的慕道友,透過弟兄姊妹的愛心幫助,讓她看到神的恩典臨到她,早日認識真神,接受福音!
  4. 求主安慰那些因香港動盪受影響的年輕人,讓他們更多的仰望神,而不是在網上有激烈的言論!求主保護香港所有的市民,早日平息這場風波!
  5. 感謝主的感動,在我們的弟兄們心上興起建立一個廣東話查經班的意念!求主帶領我們接觸更多在信仰邊緣徘徊的人!
  6. 求主帶領8月8-11日的全德華人基督徒同工訓練營,讓赴會的同工們都有滿滿的收穫!

        願主賜你們一個愉快的夏天!

Dear brothers and sisters,

        “But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.” Luke 8:15

        Lord Jesus taught us to persevere in order to produce a crop. After listening to God’s words for 8-9 years, two seekers finally decided to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and they are willing to be baptized in the upcoming baptismal service. Because of our sister’s good testimony, our sister helped in prompting their decision. This sister has already moved back to China but she returns to Germany for every holiday. Since she is going to bring her son to study in the US later, she stays longer than usual this time. As such, she has more time with the seekers and encouraged them to accept Jesus’ salvation.

        Recently, I had the opportunities to meet with some people with pessimistic and negative emotions:

        Three weeks ago, our pastor’s wife sent me a message from Taiwan requesting me to contact a sister immediately because she told her that there was no meaning in living. For fear of something unpleasant might happen, I contacted her right away and let her come to stay with me so that I could learn more from her and took care of her. She was facing a lot of pressures from all sides. Since she was a newly convert and didn’t see God’s leading, she was very disappointed. She felt better when I encouraged her every day. But whenever I went out of town overnight, she became depressed again. I also need God’s power to support her.

        Recently, a sister had an urge to contact her former employee. After talking to her, she learned that she got a big blow when her doctor told her that she had late stage cancer. She was in China where she was diagnosed. She returned to Germany for treatment. Because our sister accompanied her to see doctor and her daughter helped her to do some paperwork, when our sister invited her for an evangelistic meeting, she accepted the invitation. Although it was hard for a restaurant worker to understand the topic on science and religion, a sentence was impressed on her mind, i.e. “God is the true God who created the universe”. Our sister also invited her to join our fellowship last Wednesday. Our sister asked me to pick her up. On our way, she mentioned that her friend also asked her to go to Chinese temple and she did. However, she said that she could listen more from our meetings. Together with the sharing of our brother and sisters, the atmosphere of our fellowship, she shared her gratefulness with me on our way back. The next day, our sister’s husband went with her to see her doctor as her interpreter. After the doctor’s visit, our brother brought her home and let her watch a sermon on video. The preacher came from her home town and she felt very close and appreciated his sermon.

        Current situations in Hong Kong had affected some oversea Hong Kongers, especially young adults. Because of different background, it was hard to discuss this matter with mainland Chinese without triggering emotions. A student from Hong Kong was very concerned and was emotionally affected. He met some new brothers and sisters who were also very concerned on social media. Our brother set up a group so that we could pray for Hong Kong. As his pastor, I joined him to show support for them. Since we can’t do anything for Hong Kong, all we can do is to spread the gospel more diligently. We are thankful that a Hong Kong brother was just sent to Germany to work by his company for some years. He has a heart to serve and decided to choose a company provided apartment which was near to our church so that he could open his home for meeting. Therefore, we prayed to God to prepare us to establish a Cantonese speaking bible study group for young adults.

Thanksgiving and prayer items:

  1. Thank the Holy Spirit for touching the long-time seekers to come to accept Jesus as their personal Savior! Pray that our Lord will strengthen their faith and they will follow Him joyfully!
  2. Thank God for giving me the strength to accompany the sister who lost hope in Him. Through prayers and encouragement, we could see God’s leading step by step. After hearing others’ testimonies, she was willing to attend the baptismal class!
  3. Pray that God will heal the cancer patient! Through the love of brother and sisters’ help, pray that she can see God’s grace be upon her so that she can come to know God and accept His gospel!
  4. Pray that God will comfort those who are being affected by what happened in Hong Kong! Pray that they would turn to God instead of hot dispute on the internet! Pray that God will protect the Hong Kong citizens and bring peace to the city!
  5. Thank God for touching our brothers’ heart to be willing to set up a new bible study group! Pray that we could reach out to those who are wandering outside the sheep pen!
  6. Pray that God will lead our Co-worker Training Camp on 8-11 August! Pray that all the attendees will get a lot out of this camp!

        May you have a blessed summer!

Serving Him,
Karen Tang
