鄧秀珍宣教士代禱信(2016年11月)

親愛的弟兄姊妹平安:

感謝神的恩典,有機會參加各樣的營會,今年是破紀錄地參加了7個營會!十月份參加福音營,被安排睡在一間六人的房間,由於我睡眠發出的聲音影響旁邊的女生,她便來輕輕的搖醒我,結果睡眠不好,營會結束馬上感冒,緊接著又參加全歐教牧領袖研討會,雖然這次有單人房的待遇,由於酒店與教會還是有點距離,加上天氣轉涼的緣故,至今咳嗽還沒有完全停止。

參加這次福音營,又是一次新的經歷。由於兒童主日學老師不夠,我自薦去幫忙。從來沒有機會在兒童主日學服事,只能幫忙去做助教,剛好來了一位弱智的小朋友,她也願意我抱,所以很多時候就照顧她。同行有一位國內來探親的母親,剛來德國,女兒就帶她去教會,她也很願意參加各樣查經活動,也看見女兒信主後的改變,只是她覺得這個信仰與她沒關係。但是聽第一堂道就被感動,願意接受主的救恩。本來她也有陪女兒上受洗班,所以,上週教會洗禮她也能及時趕上,與女兒一同接受洗禮。

現在越來越多的父母來探親,營會也見到有好幾對,其中一對在我們小組,說在不知情之下被女兒報了名參加,因為父親是官員,雖然之前不願意接觸,但是既然來之則留下來聽聽,從聽道到看見弟兄姊妹的相愛與付出,幾天下來思想大有改變,對基督教也有好感。

最近教會的年輕弟兄姊妹都積極參與新學期的迎新活動,兩週前有加拿大來的讚諾士樂隊的佈道音樂會。昨天他們又邀請那次出席的同學出去郊遊,然後帶了好幾位同學參加主日崇拜。

感謝神感動亞沙芬堡的姊妹積極的邀請,雖然時間上很難配合每個人的時間表,查經班還是恢復查經聚會,就在她的餐館休息的時間,聚會之後她還邀請大家留下來吃晚餐。

今年除了參加營會次數最多之外,也接收到最多震撼性的消息,哥哥姊姊都先後得了癌症,家族裏也有兩位親人剛剛離世。除了姊姊之外,都有安排回去照顧或陪伴家人和親屬,正如聖經所說的:人若不看顧親屬,就是背了真道,比不信的人還不好,不看顧自己家裏的人,更是如此。提前5:8

感恩代禱事項:

  1. 感謝神藉著福音營講員張路加牧師的信息,讓多人受感接受主的救恩!求 主堅固他們的信心!教會姐妹帶去的二位慕道友雖然決志信主,可是還有世上的事纏累,不願意去教會。求 主感動她們,明白先求 神的國和義,其他的東西就會加給她們!
  2. 感謝主藉著各樣活動,讓新人來參加團契或主日崇拜!求主讓我們更多的關心他們,以愛吸引他們歸向神!
  3. 感謝主使停止一段時期的亞沙芬堡查經班恢復聚會!求主保守,讓查經班能夠穩定聚會,讓那一區的婦女(先生上班)先聞福音,接受主的救恩!
  4. 吉森查經班以家庭為主,近日大家都有感動要積極做學生事工,正在籌備一些吸引學生的活動,求主給他們智慧,懂得如何與學生交流分享福音!新學期來了一位男生,求主保守,讓他繼續願意參與查經班!
  5. 因為參加營會、家人生病、離世的緣故,最近到處奔波,身體有點疲憊。求主保守我的身體,加力量繼續事奉!

還有兩個多星期就到感恩節,在此,預祝各位

感恩節快樂!蒙恩!

 

主的使女,

Dear brothers and sisters,

Thank God for His grace that I had the opportunities to participate several camps this year! I broke my record of attending 7 camps! In October, I attended the South German Gospel Camp where I was assigned to a 6-bed room. Due to the noise I made while sleeping, the sister who slept next to me would touch me lightly so that I would not make any noise. As such, we didn’t have good sleep. Right after the camp, I caught a cold. The following week, I attended the All European Pastors and Leaders Conference where I had the privilege to have a single bed room. But since there was still a distance from the hotel to the church where we had the conference, in addition to the change of cold weather, my cough has not yet stopped.

Attending the gospel camp was another new experience for me. Since there were not enough Sunday School teachers for the children, I volunteered myself to help. Since I never had a chance to serve in that area, I could only be a helper. It happened that there was a retarded child in the group. Since she was willing to let me hold her, I took care of her most of the time. There was a mother who went with us to this camp. Once she came from China to visit her daughter, her daughter brought her to church. She was willing to attend bible study groups. She also saw a big change in her daughter’s life after becoming a Christian. But she didn’t think she had anything to do with this religion. But after listening to the first message, she was touched already and accepted Christ as her Savior. Because she had also accompanied her daughter in the baptismal classes before, she was able to be baptized in time with her daughter last week.

There were more and more parents coming to visit their child. I saw some such couples in the gospel camp also. One of these couples was in our small group. The father shared with us that her daughter made the applications to attend the camp for them without their knowing. The father was an official in China and would have nothing to do with this religion. Since they were already at the venue, he might as well stay to listen. After hearing the messages and seeing the loving sacrifice among brothers and sisters, he had changed his mind in just a few days. He had a good impression on Christianity.

Recently our young brothers and sisters have been actively involved with new student welcoming activities. Two weeks ago, The Channels who came from Canada provided an evangelistic music meeting. Yesterday, our brothers and sisters invited those who participated that night for a hiking and after that brought some of them to church for Sunday service.

Thank God for touching the sister in Aschaffenburg to invite people for bible study group. Although it is hard to find a time to meet for everyone, our bible study group started meeting again. We met in the sister’s restaurant at their resting time. After the bible study, she also invited us to have dinner there.

Besides attending the most number of camps, I heard the most shocking news this year. My brother and sister got cancer one after the other. There were two family members passed away within less than 2 months’ time recently. Except my sister, I had spent time either taking care of or be with my family members, just as the bible said: “If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”  1 Tim. 5:8

 

Thanksgiving and prayer items:

  1. Thank God through the messages from Rev. Luke Zhang in the gospel camp, many came to accept Christ’s salvation! Pray that God will strengthen their faith! Our church’s sister brought two friends to the camp and accepted Jesus as their Savior too. But, there was other priority in their mind that kept them from coming to church. Pray that God will touch them and let them understand to seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness first, the other things will be given to them as well!
  2. Thank God for all the activities through which new comers came to fellowship and Sunday worship! Pray that we care for them more and may God’s love will draw them to Christ!
  3. Thank God for resuming the bible study group in Aschaffenburg which has stopped meeting for a few months! Pray that the group will meet regularly and those housewives will come to hear the good news first for the husbands go to work!
  4. The Giessen bible study group consisted of mostly families. Recently, God has touched their hearts to do student works more actively. They are preparing some activities now. Pray that God will give them wisdom how to do and how to share the gospel to the students! There is a new student who came to the fellowship last week. Pray that God will keep him and touch him to come continuously!
  5. Because of those camps, sickness and deaths in my family, I have been running around and am pretty tired. Pray for my health so that I will have the energy to serve.

 

Two more weeks before Thanksgiving, so I wish you all

A blessed and happy Thanksgiving!

Serving Him,
Karen Tang
