DPM Update - 2018 May - Asher's health

Posted May 1st, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Dear Friends
Asher - sudden ailment
Our family has been going through a little health test with our youngest grandchild, Asher Mark.  It all started on April 2 in early evening, after John put Asher to bed.  At about 9:30pm he woke up crying.  After trying to console him, John and Cheryl soon realized this was not their typical Asher.  He couldn’t move his arms!  His arms were completely limp from his shoulders to the tips of his fingers.  He had just been playing with his 3...

Care Ministries International May 2018 Updates

國際關懷協會 Care Ministries International 
福音進中華,福音出中華   宣教毋忘祈禱,祈禱毋忘宣教
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
主內同工及代禱夥伴平安:
願恩惠、平安從神我們的父並主耶穌基督歸與你們!每逢想到您持續地關心國際關懷協會同工與事工,就感謝我們的神。
宣教士與工場
四月對國際關懷協會大多數的宣教士們是一段很特別的時間,在泰國、柬埔寨與緬甸等工場國,幾乎每天早起,炎熱高溫即迎面而來。雖然讀書季節的打油詩「夏日炎炎正好眠」,但在泰等三國多位宣教士依然固守崗位未曾稍歇。個人特別代表差會前往工場,與宣教士們相聚,一同度過潑水節,時間不長,但倍感珍惜。兩位實習宣教士則趁學校假期回國述職並接受評估。由差派區辦公室提供的訊息,她們已經走出了適應上的低谷,許多思維都由負面轉成正面,對跨文化環境展現積極的態度。我們向神大大感恩!他們不但越過了初始的浪漫期,也熬過了極具挑戰的反應期,正踏入認知期,我們也求神引導他們順利地邁向轉化期(依據「把握時機」一般而言要十四個月的時間才能由最初的浪漫期進入轉化期)後,在工場可以健康地繼續事奉,完成神託付的使命。
而身處緬甸佤邦的同工成新夫婦,正面臨新一波的挑戰,根據近日所獲資料顯示「…最近這幾年我們佤邦的宗教信仰已經是氾濫…特別是基督教,對外來的基督教,我們要進行控制、消除…特別是我們的幹部絕對不可以支持、不能參與…」因著進入山區的管制,無法陪伴關懷,但深願亞比該對大衛所說「雖有人起來追逼你,尋索你的性命,你的性命卻在耶和華你的神那裡蒙保護,如包裹寶器一樣;你仇敵的性命,耶和華必拋去,如用機弦甩石一樣。(撒上二五:29)」成為我們的禱告與祝福。
 
當再次北上泰國清萊,看望在神學院服事的宣教士敬慈,開著車協助她外出購買飲用水時,想到兩小時前山上大雨漫過她的住宿房間,但敬慈卻處之泰然僅以厚紙鋪地並告知習慣了。看到這般為自己無所求,為基督求一切的心志與態度,不得不為敬慈禱告:求神為愛他的人所預備的,是眼睛未曾看見,耳朵未曾聽見,人心也未曾想到的(林前二:9)。照片說明:何等有幸,借到原先隸屬於楊一哲牧師的車子,可以邊開車邊緬懷這位至死忠心的宣教士。
 
總部與地區
藉著在泰國工場之際,總部幾位核心同工把握機會,共商工場的決策議題及前瞻未來二十年協會的需要,一起思考、禱告,求神給我們超越的眼光,看見協會未來發展的藍圖:如何不辜負上帝的託付?如何突破現有的各種框架?如何為將來接棒團隊奠定基礎?我們需要您的關心與代禱,我們也需要懂宣教的專業人才參與並指導。
自去年十一月底開始陸續參加協會各地的董理事會,盼望有機會向各地的董理事請益外,也能親自介紹總部的方向,期使全差會能持定目標。四月再度參與了兩個地區的理事會,看見各地的牧長們對CMI的關心與愛護,何等感恩。其中一個理事會成員年紀較輕,最大的還不到半百,兩天的會議加上會外會,藉由腦力激盪(頭腦風暴,brian storming),思考地區的定位及專注的事工,創新與富想像力的話題不斷出現,為這批未來的接棒者興奮。
過去兩個月為協會宣教士和他們的孩子籌集工場緊急意外後送保險費全年美金一萬元,感謝神的預備,雖還差些許,但我們深信主必供應!在還不完全足夠的情形下,如何調配撥款給各地區使用,許許多多感人的故事接續出現。一個地區同工說:我們已有屬於個人的保險,讓其他地區優先使用,最後再考慮我們。一個地區的同工回應:用我個人的存款先給不方便轉帳的地區使用,將來再歸墊。一個地區同工說:雖然正值假期,我依然繼續思考各種匯款給其他地區合法且可行的模式。看到全協會那種一家人的感覺,這是全家人參與的事奉,真棒!
最後,再一次謝謝您的禱告扶持!

​宣教祈禱夥伴團隊 Mission Prayer Partner Team (MPPT)
特別禱告:身為基督徒,你我都熟知約翰福音三章16節「神愛世人⋯⋯」以及主耶穌「愛你的鄰舍」的教導。在全球六十多億神所愛的世人中,你可知有十七億人是信奉伊斯蘭教的穆斯林?他們散居在世界各地,單單美國就有好幾百萬人之多!邀請您一同參與一個全球性的禱告運動—「30天為穆斯林禱告」,在穆斯林一年之中最重要又神聖的齋戒月齊來為穆斯林禱告!今年穆斯林齋戒月始於5月16日至6月14日,敬請預備心參與 30 天為穆斯林禱告。
國際總部
為總部新建網頁的開發代禱,盼望各地區的相關同工都能順利提供資料。設計夥伴亦能全力配合系統上線。因美國辦公室同工的變動,求神預備建置人力資源資料庫的接棒同工。                                                                                                                                                       
台灣分會有幾位新宣教士人選申請加入,需要按照流程處理,以及協助、關心和陪伴他們,求主保守開路。請代禱。
美國事工
今年的宣教祈禱特會為了鼓勵與會者能在會後,帶出實際的禱告行動,訂於五月18-19日,在全球祈禱日(聖靈降臨節5/20)之前舉行。各樣籌備工作正在緊鑼密鼓地進行中,請特別為大會的三位信息講員:邱志健牧師、陳啟猷牧師以及俞明禮牧師及所有籌備同工代禱。目前報名人數偏低,請為弟兄姊妹能於5月12日報名截止之前踴躍報名迫切代禱。
請為正在積極籌備,預計於五月底前往中東地區服事難民的醫療短宣隊代禱,若有感動想要以行動或奉獻參與此項事工的代禱勇士,請與美國辦公室洽詢。
為預計於六月2~3, 7~8與羅省教會聯會合辦的「把握時機」宣教訓練課程代禱,求主預備合宜的師資及有心學習的學員。
宣教工場
總工場主任劉智欽牧師將於本月14日在台北再次向泰國經貿辦事處遞交泰國的居留簽證申請,請代禱。同時本月份也將在各神學院推動「神學生跨文化實習與訓練」。
李恕君宣教士:七月份自紐西蘭前來的短宣隊將參與社區中心事工的配搭,請為社區中心的安排以及短宣隊員的預備代禱。
拉法事工已遷入柬國新租用的辦公室,裡面有辦公室、教室、寢室、廚房,前面並可停車,除了籌備學院事工,語言中心會先運作,目前有為附近兒童開設聖經班,7-8月預計舉辦「神學生跨文化實習與訓練」課程(Mission Field Training)。
向柬國政府申請多時的本地非政府組織 (NGO),經承辦的柬籍姊妹告知,已獲政府官員簽字,尚需等候正式文件的頒下,為此感恩。
上個月大曼谷區的大部分宣教士都回國述職,本月相繼返回,願主恩待使他們得力,經過休整後重新再出發。
為漢宣國際事工的拓展代禱,盼望能在Udonthani省建立合適的關係,為將來漢宣老師進入及承辦營會打好基礎。為漢宣國際鋪路,本月再赴烏冬省Udonthani探尋,求主預備。
敬祝 禱告得力 愛主更深

Psalm 17:4 With regard to the works of man, by the word of your lips I have avoided the ways of the violent.
In the life of David, who would become king over Israel, there were key moments when the pressures of daily life stressed him to the point of ungodly action. How many of us can relate to that!! 
This verse in Psalm 17 was possibly written in the aftermath of an encounter that would press David, and tempt him to...

Meg Bodden Garage Sale and Fundraiser

Posted Apr 13th, 12:00 by islandpraise on Church & Ministry


Dear Friends,
 
As many of you know, Meg Bodden, the Director of Women’s Ministry at FBC, was diagnosed with brain cancer back in 2015.  We are blessed and privileged that she is still here with us, and still faithfully serving the Lord here at FBC!  There is a fair bit of travelling back and forth to the US, as well as other costs associated with Meg’s treatment. 
 
To that end, we are holding another Garage Sale and Breakfast in the FBC gym...
