吳約瑟、黃月甜宣教士代禱信51(2017年12月)

Home Category : 柬埔寨工場

主內弟兄姊妹們平安:

        您們好!聖誕節快到了,柬埔寨沒有聖誕節公眾假期,但商店和百貨公司已用聖誕節為題推銷貨品。「這一切的事成就,是要應驗主藉先知所說的話說:『必有童女懷孕生子,人要稱他的名為以馬內利(翻出來就是「神與我們同在」)。』」(馬太福音一22-23)但願柬埔寨的人能明白聖誕節的意義,是耶穌放下了祂在天上的榮耀,降卑成為人,生在馬槽,為了叫神能與我們同在。

        我們已回金邊一個月,再次適應這裡炎熱的天氣和生活節奏。活石堂的人數有些微上升,感謝主!我們仍需要一位全時間的本地同工來作牧者。現在有幾位來聚會的想參加水禮,請為他們禱告。

        九月份有十多名小朋友要升讀小學而離開幼稚園,我們捨不得他們離去,但願他們在新的學校有良好的適應。託兒所的小朋友少了,聞說在我們託兒所附近開了一間學校,學費比我們便宜。我們會印製幼稚園和託兒所的新宣傳單。

感恩事項:
– 教會有新人來聚會。
– 青年人成立了足球小組。
– 女兒欣義十二月底在柬埔寨結婚,計劃明年三月去加拿大定居。
– 幼稚園已請到一位煮飯的嬸嬸。

求恩事項:
– 教會在12月17日舉行聖誕節慶祝,盼望每人能帶一位朋友來參加,並能明白聖誕的意義。
– 幼稚園會在12月22日星期五放學後舉行聖誕慶祝,盼望家長們能來參加,並明白聖誕的意義。
– 請記念教會的註冊申請。
– 明年一月會有水禮班。
– 幼稚園的招待員Srey Leak上星期接受了主,為她的靈命成長禱告。

        多謝您們在禱告上成為我們的伙伴,使我們得著支持和鼓勵。敬祝聖誕節,新年蒙福,與天父更親近!

Dear friends and family,

        Greetings from Cambodia! Christmas season is around the corner. The malls and shops are advertising their goods. Let us not forget the real meaning of Christmas! ‘So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”’ (Matthew 1:22-23) Our Saviour Jesus’ birth is the meaning of Christmas.

        We have been back to Phnom Penh for about one month. Getting adjusted to the hot weather and way of life here. Praise God everything is well with living Stone Church. The members still come every Sunday and there is a slight increase of people coming to church. God is good and faithful. We are still looking for a full-time pastor preferably a male. About 4-5 people attend our church are asking about the baptismal service because they have decided to follow Jesus.

        In September about 10 students left our Sonlight Kindergarten and went to grade school. We miss them and pray that they can adjust well to their new schools. There is a drop of students and toddlers in our nursery due to various reasons. We heard that there are many schools opened near us and their tuition fee is cheaper than ours. We are planning to make new pamphlets for promotion.

        Thank you so much for caring and praying for us. Your partnership is very important in our ministry here in Cambodia. Please continue to remember our praise and prayer items.

Praise items:

  • A slight increase of people coming to our church.
  • Lydia, our youngest daughter, is going to get married in Cambodia at the end of this month. They will move to Canada in March.
  • We have found a new cook at our school.

Prayer items:

  • Christmas program at church is on December 17 this year. The members are encouraged to bring 1 non-Christian friend to come. Pray that they will know the meaning of Christmas.
  • After school on December 22, we will have a Christmas celebration for Sonlight Kindergarten. Please pray that the parents know about our school and the real meaning of Christmas.
  • We are still working on the church registration.
  • A baptismal class is planned for four people coming to our church in January 2018.
  • Pray for Srey Leak, the school’s receptionist, will grow spiritually. She received Jesus few weeks ago during a Bible study.
  • Lydia and Patrick’s job hunting in Canada.

        Wish you a blessed Christmas and a fruitful New Year!

In His service,
Joseph and Liza

親愛的親友們:

        主內平安!時間過得真快,我們已完成第四個在柬埔寨的宣教任期(每個任期為三年)。原訂八月先到加拿大之後回香港工作匯報,但在加拿大時約瑟生病了。因為我們沒有家庭醫生,所以要進急診室,約瑟在醫院住了15天。出院回家休息時,體力未能充份復原,醫生建議取消九月回港的行程。天父真好,在這段等候時間,祂醫治,安慰我們。感恩有機會多點時間與兒子、媳婦和孫兒們相處,更認識他們不同的需要,好讓我們知道怎樣為他們代禱。很感激及多謝大家的關心和代禱!

        回想這十多年的日子,我們體會到天父真好。「…你們當恆久忍耐…看哪,農夫等待著田地裡寶貴的果實,為此恆久忍耐,直到果實得著秋雨春雨。」(雅5:7)曉得信心及忍耐在事奉神的路上是很重要的。我們已看見有些果子,教會的同工可以起來帶領教會,會友起來帶領敬拜,看重教會生活;一同禱告、探訪、傳福音。

        神使用短宣隊的一些專業老師來訓練新光幼稚園的老師,老師們開始認真的去備課,有信心和專注去教導每一課題。幾年前鄰居們叫我們的幼稚園為「耶穌學校」,但現在他們說:「耶穌學校好!」我們在八月離開金邊時,幼稚園有學生64名,九月時有學生升讀一年級;有媬姆的三名兒女去了一間有直屬小學的學校,現在剩下50多名幼稚園學生,幼兒院有40名小孩。感謝天父在過去七年的帶領和祝福。

        我們也要感謝大家在各方面的支持。請繼續為我們感恩和禱告:

感恩事項:

  1. 住在女生宿舍的學生們比以前更專心學道和尋求真理。
  2. 多年來教會漏水的問題已得解決。
  3. 女兒欣義已訂婚,會在年尾或明年頭結婚。
  4. 約瑟康復進程理想,可以在十一月回金邊。
  5. 八月在我們未離開金邊時,幼稚園聘請新的行政主任,她有責任感及有原則,和同工們有好的相處。
  6. 活石堂組織足球隊並取名為「活青」,在星期日青年團後練習。有新的青年人參加,是外展的機會。

禱告事項:

  1. 教會及幼稚園的同工能同心事奉和能互相幫助。
  2. 為青少年足球隊能成為外展的渠道。
  3. 為我們要辦理柬埔寨的工作證。
  4. 柬埔寨明年大選,請記念各政黨能有言論自由。

        多謝你們的代禱和支持,祝以馬內利!

約瑟,月甜上

Dear friends and family,

        Greetings! Time has gone by super-fast. We finished our 4th term of mission service in Cambodia. We began our three-month home assignment in August 10 to November 10 in Canada and Hong Kong. We went to Canada to spend time with our family and friends in August. Joseph got sick; we have no family doctor so he had to go to the emergency and was hospitalized for 15 days. The doctor recommended resting at home before we go back to Hong Kong. God is good, He has healed and encouraged us. We are grateful that we could spend quality time with our two sons and families. We can understand their needs and pray for them specially. Thank you so much for your concerns and prayers.

        As we contemplate at what we have done during all these years, a verse from James 5:7 “Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it, until it receives the early and late rain.” Patience and trust are the keys in our ministry for God. Now we’re beginning to see some fruits in our church and school. In our church, the staff can stand up and lead the church and the church members are leading worship, coming to prayer meeting and going out to witness to others. We can see God’s wonderful work among us. Our staff are more committed and keener to study God’s word.

        In our school with the professional and training of the short-term mission groups; our teachers have started to write meaningful lesson plans. They are more confident and focusing on the teaching the lessons.

        The neighbors call our school the “Jesus’ School” and they spread the news that the “Jesus’ School” is good. Before we left Cambodia, we had 64 children in the kindergarten. Now some of them left for first grade and 3 children of our nannies went to another school with primary and secondary schools. Now we have about 50 students. There are 40 toddlers in the nursery. Praise God for leading, blessing and building our team.

        Thank you for supporting us through these years in different ways. Really appreciate that. Please continue to give thanks to God and pray for us.

Praise items:

  1. The ladies at our student dorm are more interested in studying the word of God.
  2. Water leaking in the church building was fixed and repair was done to the water damaged ceiling. The repair work had been done over many years and finally there is no more leaking.
  3. Lydia our youngest daughter was engaged in June and will get married next year.
  4. The kindergarten has a new administrator; she is very capable of her role.

Prayer items:

  1. Pray for the staff of our church and kindergarten that they can work together as a team and relate to one another as a family.
  2. Pray for the football team that it can become an outreach to young people.
  3. Pray for applying of work permit for us as foreign workers.

        Thanks for praying and supporting us!

In His blessed hope,
Joseph and Liza

親愛的主內兄姊們:

主內平安!當我們從新聞報導看見世上正在發生恐佈份子的槍殺襲擊,炸彈爆炸,不義之事奪去許多無辜的生命,全世界政治動盪都令人驚懼,無助。但感謝主我們信耶穌的人有平安及永生的確據。

五月十日是教會快樂的日子!那天有九位年青人在湄公河邊受洗加入主的名下。大清早我們一行八十多人浩浩蕩蕩乘坐麵包車、車子、三輪車和摩托車去目的地。他們大多數是教會會友,有些是朋友及鄰居。這天是九位青年人值得記念的日子,他們也成為未信朋友的見證。水禮之後有午餐及水上活動時間;大家盡情玩水、划船及撈蛤。有些姊妹則坐在一起和一位新朋友分享天父在她們身上的作為(水禮之後我們有機會探訪她,她說神是好的,但她因丈夫不信而未能接受主)。當天我們玩得開心,各人懷著愉快的心情回家。

我們在五月初參加在馬來西亞檳城舉行的「天父之愛」聚會。這研討聚會的主旨是叫我們更認識天父的愛是何等長濶高深,祂的大愛能醫治我們過去所受的傷害。這醫治的過程是由「在父懷裡的那位獨生子——神,他將神表明了出來。」(約一18)這節聖經清楚地說耶穌:1. 是天父的獨生子;2. 又是神。因此福音的中心是天父的愛,是由祂的愛子「道」成了肉身,從天上降世並將「天父」表明出來。

六月四日那天在柬埔寨有全國鄉區理事會選舉,選票最高的兩大黨是人民黨和救國黨。初部點票顯示人民黨領先。這次選舉共有12政黨參選,結果人民黨得1,163席,救國黨得482席,比上次選舉多了442席。國家聯合黨得1席,而其餘的黨沒足夠票數未得席位。感恩的是這次選舉能平安和平靜地過去。請為柬埔寨的政黨能同心合力為人民服務,並帶來廉潔和公正的社會禱告。

八月初我們會作工作匯報三個月,其中一個月在加拿大,兩個月在香港。高興有機會在加拿大探望約瑟93歲的母親,兩個兒子、兒婦和四個孫子。女兒欣義和她的未婚夫也會去見我們的家人。您們的支持激勵我們繼續在工場宣教,謝謝。請繼續記念我們:

讚美事項:

  • 有九位青年人接受水禮跟隨耶穌。
  • 在6月4日的鄉區理事會選舉能順利舉行。
  • 教會多年來漏水問題看來已解決了。
  • 女兒欣義在6月4日訂婚,他們計劃在明年結婚。

代禱事項:

  • 為九位受浸的青年人之靈命成長,在門訓班和真道探索中認識天父的心及真理。
  • 教會旁邊的路面因車多行走,已破裂需要維修,求天父叫這修理工程能順利進行和路面能堅固耐用。
  • 七月有香港神學生來實習一個月,請為我們能在事奉中一同學習來禱告。
  • 我們工作匯報前需要安排教會及幼稚園老師,媬姆和職員工作。幼稚園的主任會在八月放產假三個月。

謝謝您們,如有代禱或分享事項請聯絡,好讓我們一起去靠近天父!

Dear friends and family,

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus!  Looking around the world we are saddened to see what have been happening with terrorist attacks, shootings, killings, political scandals and others.  Praise God as Christians we have peace and assurance in Christ Jesus.

May 10th is a big day for our church; we had 9 young people baptized at Mekong River.  Early in the morning we rode on vans, car and motorcycles to the site.  With church members, friends and neighbors we had close to 80 people joining.  It is a memorable day for those young people who have decided to follow Jesus Christ.  Also it is a witness to those friends who do not know God.  It is great to see them have fun playing in the water, rowing the boat and catching clams.  Some ladies shared how God has been working in their lives to one unbeliever.  Even though she did not make a decision yet but she knows God is good and cares for us. We visited her at her home once and she understands and believes what the Bible says, but can’t make a decision because of her family’s belief.  We all enjoyed the day very much and everyone went home happily.

Another highlight of these few months is to attend the Fatherheart Ministries A School in Penang, Malaysia from April 30 – May 6.  This is a worldwide ministry that focuses on teaching the heart of our heavenly Father whose love is wider, deeper and higher than we can imagine.  If we are touched by our Father’s love, we can love others more.

It’s less than 2 months that we will go on furlough.  Thank you for serving our great Father with us through your support in different ways.  We are forever grateful to God who calls us to serve the Khmer people, and also to all of you who support and remember us faithfully throughout these years.  Please continue to praise God and Pray for us:

Praise items:

  • There are 9 young people who were baptized recently.
  • The district commune election went smoothly on June 4th.
  • The problem of water leaking in our church for years seems to be fixed now.
  • Our youngest, Lydia was engaged to Patrick Ramsing; they are planning their wedding in 2018.
  • We are considerably healthy with only minor old aged problems

Prayer items:

  • The spiritual growth of the young people who were baptized in May. Pray that they can learn more from the weekly discipleship class every Sunday.
  • The road on the side of our church needs to be paved again. The traffic is heavy now around our church so the road is broken.
  • In July we will take in a seminary intern for a month. Please pray we’ll have a great time of learning together.  She will mostly involve in teacher’s training and start an English class for young people as an outreach program.
  • Please pray for our preparation for our furlough – to arrange both the staff of our church and school to take over our responsibilities.

Thank you so very much!  We’d love to hear from you; let us know how we can pray for you.

In our Father’s love,
Joe and Liza Ng

親愛的親友們,

 

時間過得真快!不知不覺間春天來到了;周圍充滿一片有生氣的景色。我們將會慶祝復活節,復活的主帶來新的希望及生命!

 

三月十四日我們為了一會友離世而傷痛。活嬸在二十年前患了肺結核,十年來每主日都走路回教會敬拜神,她喜愛讀神的話語。去年年尾她的身體開始很弱,差不多整天躺在床上。三、四年前她因腎發炎入住醫院,她說看見耶穌在光中出現,告訴她要回去因她的時間未到。之後她的身體就好起來,出院後一直為主作見証。她的家境貧窮,離世之前還掛慮她留下給家人的安葬費是否夠用。感謝主一切費用都足夠有餘。

 

雖然我們捨不得她離開,但知道她已安息在神的懷裏。她的丈夫及兩位成年兒子曾返教會,他們能感受到神的恩典及會友的關愛。請為他們能真正認識神禱告。

 

請繼續記念我們的感恩及禱告事項。

 

感恩事項:

  • 感謝主教會閣樓一房間的漏水問題看來已解決。以前曾有不同的師傅來修理過,但都不能修好。
  • 教會在五月中舉行水禮,願8位來上課的青年人能在神的話扎根。
  • 幼稚園現有60多名學生,幼兒有40多名小孩。願主幫助老師、媬姆有更多愛心及忍耐。

 

禱告事項:

  • 今年的柬埔寨新年恰巧也是在復活節期間,祈禱教會在慶祝救主復活能吸引更多未信主的來認識復活的主耶穌,另因醉酒而做成打架及交通意外的事件能減少。
  • 今年八月中至十一中是我們工作匯報的時間,學校的行政主任也會在這後期間放產假。請為我們能找到合適人選來幫忙兩、三個月。
  • 請為教會染上肺結核及丙型肝炎的會友求神醫治。

 

多謝你們的代禱、支持!如你們有禱告事項,請告之,好讓我們能互相代求。

 

祝復活節更體會神的大愛,耶穌復活的大能!

Dear friends and family,

 

How time flies; spring is here already! We can see life around us. As we will celebrate Easter season, we also see hope and new life in Christ!

 

On March 14th our church was saddened to lose one of our members. “Ming Wood” who had had TB for the last 20 years went to be with the Lord. In the last 10 years she had been faithful in attending our church. Since the end of last year she had been weak staying in bed at home. About 3-4 years ago she was hospitalized for kidney infection. During her stay she saw Jesus in the light and He told her to go home because her time was not yet arrived. Then she was well and witnessed for Jesus. Now it’s the appointed time for her to go with our Lord. Her family is poor; before she died she was worried about the all the expenses of her burial service. But we praise God that He had provided all the needs. We are sad to lose her but now she is without any pain, worries but spends glorious time with God our Father. She left her husband and two grown up sons; three of them used to come to church before. Her husband was touched by the love of God and brothers and sisters in Christ. Please pray that they really give their lives to Christ and let the Holy Spirit lead them.

 

Please continue to praise God and pray for us:

Praise items:

  • the water leakage of one of the rooms in our church is fixed. There had been workers who came and fixed it again and again but no success. Praise the Lord that now is fixed!
  • we will have baptismal service in mid-May; please pray that the 8 young people who are taking the lessons will root their faith in God’s word.
  • our school has 60 plus students and 40 plus toddlers in our nursery. Please pray for more patience and love for our teachers and nannies.

 

Prayer items:

  • the Khmer New Year falls on the same date of Easter holiday. Please pray for the believers that they will be good testimony to those around them. And also that fighting and traffic accidents due to drinking will be lessened.
  • we will be on home assignment from 10th of August until 10th of November. During this time our school’s administrator will be on maternity leave for 2 months. Please pry for provision for someone who can look after our school for 2-3 months.
  • pray for those who are sick with TB and hepatitis C in our church.

Thank you for your prayers, and support in different ways. Let us know if there’s anything we can pray for you!

In His service,
Joseph and Liza Ng

親愛的親友平安,

聖誕節快到了,每當我們慶祝這日子時都想到“神愛世人,甚至賜下他的獨生子,好讓所有信他的人不至於滅亡,反得永恆的生命”(約翰福音 3:16)

2016年即將結束,回顧過去一年的恩典,我們對2017年的來臨充滿了盼望。今年的上半年曾面對一些挑戰,域式傳道在聖經學院畢業便離職,幼稚園老師也有變動。但天父是信實的,幫助我們解決問題並給我們成長的機會。“神阿、我曾求告你、因為你必應允我.求你向我側耳、聽我的言語。” (詩篇17:6)

12月10日星期六在教會舉行了第一個婚禮。幼稚園的行政色妮布(Srey Pov)姊妹跟溫拿勒(Vanarath)弟兄結婚。很多親友來參加這個婚禮,願主祝福這對新人。第二天星期日有兩母女來參加教會崇拜,願她們在主的話語中成長。

請繼續為我們禱告:

感恩事項:

  • 這年有好的身體,主賜下健康力量來事奉祂。
  • 今年有兩位大學生入住女生宿舍。
  • 女童色妮力(Srey Neat)今年13歲,是住在貧民區的主日學生。四個多月前患病,不能呼吸,手和腳都不能動。現在可以把手舉起和腳可移動少許,但仍需用氧氣機幫助呼吸。
  • 森能(Samnang)是個四個月大的男嬰,出生時患有唇裂和腭裂。兩星期前已經做了唇裂手術,飲奶時可用普通奶咀。腭裂手術可能要等他長到十個月或一歲時才可進行。
  • 新光幼稚園在鄰居有好名聲,他們說“耶穌學校”好。十二月有差不多六十位小朋友而托兒所有四十多位幼兒。
  • 約瑟在金邊聖經學院教一年級“靈命進深”Christian Spiritual Development,有十三位同學。今年是第二次教,原來教學相長,在課材方面比去年有更深了解。

禱告事項:

  • 在教會註冊的過程中,教會物業企名人和教會註冊的領袖要去區長面前簽名並由他打印證明在區內已註冊,然後再提交這文件去宗教局申請註冊。教會的註冊因明年柬埔寨的普選而在進度上有影響,因為區長要外出在選民登記和其他事務常不在辦公室。請記念。
  • 教會需要全時間牧者一名,願主帶領有呼召的傳道來作教會的領袖。
  • 教會聖誕慶祝在二十五日的主日崇拜中舉行。請記念預備的過程,邀請鄰居和親友參加代禱。
  • 青年團會在明年一月改在星期日下午三時舉行。請記念帶領這事工的愛心姊妹,讓這團契能牧養年青的一代。
  • 今年男生宿舍因不同的困難關閉,主若願意,教會計劃再開展男大學生宿舍的事工。

多謝您們的支持和代禱,祝聖誕快樂,新年蒙恩。

主內,
約瑟,月甜上

Dear friends and family,

 

Christmas is coming around the corner. As we celebrate together with our loved ones let us not forget that Christ is the real reason for the season. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

The year of 2016 will come to an end soon. There are so much we reflect on the grace of God in our lives and the hope we have in 2017. The first part of 2016 was rather challenging for us but with God’s help we could resolve the issues one by one. God is always faithful to help when we cry out to Him. “I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.” (Psalm 17:6)

On December 10th, there was the first wedding in our church. Srey Pov, the administrator of our kindergarten married Vanarath who is the brother of Udom, a part time worker of our church. It was a beautiful Christian wedding. Many visitors attended the wedding. On Sunday, the next day, a mother and daughter attended our church. Please pray that their faith will build on the word of God.

Please continue to lift our praise and prayer items to God. Thank you!

 

Praise Items:

  • The strength and health for us to serve Him.
  • There are two new university students in our lady’s dorm.
  • Srey Neat, a thirteen years old girl attended our Sunday school before. She lives in squatters’ area in our church neighborhood. When she got sick four months ago, she could not breathe by herself and could not move her arms and legs. Now she can move her hands and her leg a little bit.
  • Samnang, a four-month-old baby boy, has cleft lips and palate. Two weeks ago, the doctor has sewed up the lips and he can drink from milk bottle normally. He looks beautiful now. As for the cleft palate, he should wait till he is bigger, perhaps 1 year old.
  • The Sonlight Kindergarten has good reputation in our community. Some of the neighbors’ comment on us saying that the “‘Jesus’ school is good.” This month we have close to 60 children and over 40 toddlers.
  • Joseph enjoys teaching “Christian Spiritual Development” at the Phnom Penh Bible School. His class has 13 students.

Prayer Items:

  • We are still working on the church registration. There will be election in Cambodia next year. One of the procedures is to have the Sangkat (district) chief signing papers with the ones who signed legal paper of the property of our building, but he is busy with registration of voters and not at the office.
  • Provision of a full-time pastor in God’s timing. Pray that the Lord will lead a person with a clear call to ministry.
  • Youth fellowship will be changed to Sunday afternoon at 3 pm starting January 2017. Pray that our young people’s Christmas celebration may be a good time to reach out to young people. Please remember Ai Xin who is the leader of this project.
  • Our church will celebrate Christmas on December 25. Pray for the preparation and promotion of the programs.
  • College student dorm for men is closed this year. Pray that we can reopen the dorm in the future.

Thank you very much for your support in many ways, especially your prayers for us!

Merry Christmas and a blessed and fruitful New year!

In Christ,
Joseph and Liza

親愛的親友,主內弟兄姊妹們:

 

我們在主耶穌的名中向您們問安。柬埔寨的亡人節剛過去,這節期是從9月18日至10月2日,共15天。柬埔寨人在這日子中要拿食物去至少七間廟供奉和尚,他們相信祖先的亡魂會因而在陰間得到供奉。「此等不信之人被這世界的神弄瞎了心眼」(林後4:4)。請記念他們的心眼能被耶穌的真光照明和打開,從迷信的文化和習俗中出來並接受真道。在這節期中,信徒和教會領袖回鄉探親時都受不同程度的壓力,向這習俗低頭。請記念他們能在壓力中成長和成為福音的真光,

請與我們一同讚美和祈求祂。謝謝!

讚美事項:

  • 亡人節中回鄉探親的人多,車來人往,天父保守了會友們在回鄉路程上平安渡過。
  • 7月底有機會跟母會的會友同去聖地,這旅程叫我們更能體會天父話語的實在和寶貴。祂的救贖計劃是從永遠到永遠的。
  • 在這節期中,有我們差會的一位宣教士來探我們。我們有交通、分享經文和禱告,像一個小型退修會。我們會加多與教會會友查考聖經。
  • 幼稚園的小朋友們已增至40多位而托兒所有35位幼兒,因此學校可以自負盈虧。

禱告事項:

  • 10月17至23日有短宣隊從香港來,請記念我們的合作事奉能榮耀天父。
  • 婚前輔導有四人參加,一對打算在12月結婚,另一對是已婚兩年多但從未接受過輔導的。願主祝福他們能在夫婦關係上建立蒙福的家庭。
  • 教會漏水需要維修,請記念能盡快找到漏水原因。
  • 大兒子思義携同兒媳小鳳,兩位孫兒同去新西蘭參加<父親的心腸>(Father’s heart)的研習班三個月。記念他們二人在學習中成長,在家中實踐天父的愛和心思意念。
  • 幼稚園需要一位全時間英文老師,求主為我們預備一位對幼兒教育有經驗的老師。
  • 活石堂仍未有全時間傳道,求主帶領我們能尋找一位合祂心意的傳道。
  • 約瑟在10月底再開始在金邊聖經學院教一科目,求聖靈在學生和老師中作引導帶領。
  • 為女大學生宿舍在2016-17學年有入讀大學第一年的新生入住宿舍禱告。

多謝您們常在禱告中與我們同工和支持我們。如有禱告事項,敬請告知,我們可以在禱告中彼此記念。

祝主恩常偕!

約瑟,月甜上

Dear friends and family,

 

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. In Cambodia we just celebrated Pchum Ben festival; it lasts for 15 days from September 18th to October 2nd. The Cambodians believe that during this time the spirits of their ancestors are released to look for food in this human world. So they go to at least 7 temples to offer food to the monks so that their ancestors can be filled. It seems nonsense to us but they are blinded. “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers” (2 Corinthians 4:4). Let us pray that the Cambodians will open their minds that they will turn to trust the Creator God who is the only true God who can hear and watch over them. They will be free from the bondage of their culture and custom which are used by Satan to bind them in darkness. Also pray for the Christians especially for the leaders that they will be light to this dark world. Because of idolatry which make them unfaithful to God and then causes adultery among them.

Please continue to give thanks to God and pray for us, thank you.

 

Praise items:

  • We went to the Holy Land with the members of our mother’s church at the end of July. It makes more sense to us when we read God’s word. Also we see how God’s promises have been fulfilled so we can trust His word more.
  • During the holiday another missionary from our mission came to visit us. We read God’s word together and she prayed for us. We are encouraged to start more Bible classes to teach our members.
  • We have more children at our school, 40 plus students and about 35 toddlers at our nursery.

 

Prayer items:

  • There will be a short term mission team from Hong Kong on October 17 to 23. Please pray that we will work together to bring glory to God.
  • Pray for the premarital study for 2 couples and other new Bible studies that the members’ lives will be changed through His word.
  • Pray for wisdom for worker who looks for problem why one of the rooms is leaking water at church.
  • Simeon, our oldest son and family are now in a remote island in New Zealand attending the Father’s heart Seminar. Please pray that they learn more about God’s heart.
  • We are still looking for a full time English teacher at our school.
  • Joseph will teach again at Phnom Penh Bible School at the end of this month. Please pray that the Holy Spirit works among the teacher and students.
  • Pray that God will bring a right person at the right time to come serve as the pastor in charge at our church.

 

Thank you so much for partnership with us through your prayers and support! Let us know if anything we can pray for you.

 

 

Blessings,

Joseph and Liza Ng

親愛的親友,主內兄姊們:

 

主內平安!想與你們分享最近聽到的講道信息;詩篇63篇是大衛在猶大曠野的時候寫的,他說:「我渴想祢,我的心切慕祢,因你的慈愛比生命更好,我的嘴唇要頌讚你。」(1及3節)有時我們也像大衞一樣遇上困難、孤單、灰心,但我們要在這時刻尋求神,開口讚美祂。

上個月看見天父在我們鄰居施行醫治的神蹟。上封代禱信中提到為一位患病的老人家祈禱,他有很多身體上的問題:血壓高、糖尿病、以前曾大量抽煙,加上喉嚨有問題等。他只能卧床休息又不能說話,他的太太帶他去越南求醫但沒好轉。有一天我們去探訪他,跟他傳福音,又為他祈禱。最初他不想接受耶穌為救主,但多次探望他之後,看見天父是聽禱告的主,因他慢慢好起來。感謝主,他最後願意接受耶穌進入他的生命。現在他可以行走短路程,講話及進食固體食物,主耶穌是世上最大的醫生!他的太太有子宮癌;她也曾去越南求醫,現在病情也能控制。她也願意接受耶穌為她的救主。最近探訪他們,她滿有喜樂,想借教會一些福音光碟在家中看。願主加添他們的信心,讓他們的兒孫們將來也能歸信基督。

非常多謝您們的祈禱和支持我們的工作。請繼續與我們一同感恩和祈求。

 

感恩事項:

  • 約瑟於三至六月在金邊聖經學校教一年級下學期的<屬靈生命成長>課程。六月尾考試後便完成第一次在聖經學院中教學。感謝主賜下力量和智慧。
  • 我們的女兒欣義在金邊一間非政府組織工作,是做社會企業幫助殘疾人。她早上上班,下午替兩個小朋友補習。
  • 教會有漏水的情形,廁所漏水的部份已解決。至於下雨時漏水的問題,我們已做了一些工程,但還未能解決。

 

代禱事項:

  • 有一位嬸嬸在幾星期前病重入院,現在情況好些,已回家休息。以前她曾患肺結核病,醫生懷疑是復發。
  • 有短宣隊在六月尾來一星期,求主賜他們身體健康,一起同心事奉。
  • 有一位弟兄曾受神學訓練,他已在福音機構事奉了十年,上月我們請他考慮來教會作傳道人。經過禱告等候,他與太太都看不到是天父的引證。但他仍每月來講道兩次,請為教會需要傳道同工禱告。
  • 現在幼稚園和托兒所都多了小朋友,我們需要多一位英語老師。讓月甜可以多點時間去探訪學生的家庭。
  • 約瑟會在十一月至明年三月在金邊聖經學校教一年級另一學期的<屬靈生命成長>課程。

 

非常感謝你們,願上帝保佑你們!

 

主內,
約瑟,月甜

Dear Friends and family,

 

Greetings from Cambodia! We would like to share a passage that we recently heard on Psalm 63. It was written by David when he was in the wilderness of Judah. David said his soul thirst and his flesh longs for God but he will still praise Him because His lovingkindness is better than life. Many times in our lives we experience hardship and isolation like David did, we need to praise Him with joyful lips.

 

This past month we witness the miracle of healing among our neighbors. In our last letter we asked to pray for an elderly man with many health problems: high blood pressure, diabetes, heavy smoking, a lump in his throat. He was bedridden and could not talk. His wife took him to Vietnam for treatment but it didn’t help him much. One day we visited him and shared with him about Christ and prayed for him. At first he didn’t want to receive Jesus but after a few visits he got better and received Jesus into his life. Now he can get up and walk a short distance, talk and eat solid food. Praise the Lord Jesus for He is the greatest physician on earth! His wife also suffers from ovarian cancer. She also went to Vietnam for treatment; now her cancer is under control. She also received Jesus as her Savior. Pray that this couple’s faith will grow and that their children and grandchildren will come to know Jesus as well!

 

Thank you so much for partnering with our ministry; your prayers and support place an important part in our work. Please continue to praise God and pray for us.

 

Praise items:

  • Strength and wisdom from God for Joseph to finish teaching one semester at the Phnom Penh Bible School. He taught a course on “Spiritual Development” to the first year students.
  • Lydia, our daughter got a job with another NGO that is doing social enterprises helping the disabled with jobs in the mornings, in the afternoons she tutors 2 boys from 2 different families.
  • We seem to find out one of the problems of water leaking at our church building. The problem caused by one of the bathrooms is fixed. We still need to fix the problem of water leaking when it rains.

 

Prayer items:

  • Please pray for a lady in our church who was very sick last week. She used to have TB before and it seems the bacteria has come back.
  • There is a STM team from HK at the end of June. Pray for good health for them and unity to serve together.
  • The man that we talked to about the possibility of working as a pastor in our church declined our offer. He and his wife do not think it’s time for him to work in a church yet. But he will still preach at our church 2 times a month.
  • There are more new students and toddlers enrolled in our kindergarten and nursery. Please pray for another English teacher. And pray for outreach to the students’ families.
  • For guidance and wisdom for Joseph to teach another semester at the Bible School in November.

 

Thank you very much. May God bless you!

 

In Christ,
Joseph and Liza
