中心總監的話 A Word from Centre Director

 

親愛的弟兄姊妹及朋友:

「信就是對所盼望之事有把握,對未見之事有確據。」(希伯來書 11: 1)

時光荏苒,去年這時候,我做了一個大手術,以治療久纏的坐骨神經痛。感謝神,手術很成功,坐骨疼痛隨即消除,康復亦算順利。現在,雖然腿部仍有點神經痛,然而藉著每天的輔助運動,情況漸入佳境,我相信不久將來可完全復原!我全力以赴努力盡我所能,務求盡快康復,一方面可以盡心盡力及喜樂地事奉,另一方面好迎接即將誕生的第五個孫兒。實際上,動這手術並非計出萬全,我得全心全意信賴外科醫生,但是成功與否,無人敢肯定!我惟有求上帝憐憫,保守手術進行順利。神答允了我的祈求,醫治我,我衷心感恩。

晨光蒙上帝祝福, 過去二十年事工發展超越我們所想所求,將來如何, 誰可保證? 我們惟信靠上帝,在未來二十年及以後,繼續服事社群,成全祂的旨意。最近,一位SBS「晨光再現」的長期聽眾,專程由堪培拉即日開車往返悉尼,來參加我們舉辦的研討會。可見,無論是悉尼或別省, 大眾對晨光服務的需求有增無減。

我們祈求上帝感動更多人士加入晨光,參與服事社群,不論在靈性上、專業上及財政上奉獻己力,以祈求祂的國和祂的義為首任,服務社會各個階層。此刻,請你們代禱,求主呼召適合人士,加入我們的輔導組及教牧更新事工組。新一代工人加入這個事工時,他們將會親身目睹神的愛、安慰、憐憫和恩典如何透過他們的服事惠及大眾 – 正如我們於過去二十年來的經歷一般!事實上,昔日經驗告訴我們,當工人服事,祝福別人之際,自己同時蒙福,並在信望愛中建立和更新生命。

「所以,我親愛的弟兄們,你們務要堅固,不可動搖,常常竭力多做主工,因為你們知道,你們在主裡的勞苦不是徒然的。」 (哥林多前書 15:58)

「你們的光也當這樣照在人前,叫他們看見你們的好行為,便將榮耀歸給你們在天上的父。」(馬太福音5:16)

願上帝的話鼓勵你。

主愛常階!福杯滿溢!

Dear brothers, sisters and friends,

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”  (Hebrews 11:1) 

A lot can happen in a year! At this time last year I had to have a spinal surgery to tame disabling and excruciating sciatica pain. Thankfully the pain went away immediately after the surgery. My recovery has been good and steady even though there is still a lingering problem of nerve irritation in my legs. I’m very appreciative that I’ve been able to gradually regain the ability to live my life more like before, helped by my new found discipline of daily exercise.

I shall continue to make every effort to maximize my recovery to allow me to do what God calls me to do and to enjoy with a thankful heart what I have been graciously given in this life, especially at this time of the imminent arrival of my fifth grandchild.    

My decision to accept a major surgery, which is not risk free, was very much an act of putting a great deal of confidence in my surgeon to resolve my serious health problem. I hoped for a good result but had no assurance about how exactly the surgery would turn out. I asked God for his mercy and to take care of the surgery for me. By His grace, the result is what I had hoped for. For that I thank God.

As for First Light Care, what God has done for and through the ministry has been much greater than what we have hoped for, every year for the past 20 years. As to what the future holds for the ministry from here on, we, humanly speaking, can have no guarantee about that. We can only put our faith in God that He will help us to continue to serve the community according to His will in the next 20 years and beyond.  

Recently, a regular listener of First Light Care’s five years long program on SBS Radio made a one-day round trip from Canberra to attend one of our evening seminars in Sydney. This is a good example to help us see that the need for the kind of services that First Light Care provides to the community has not diminished but increased, in Sydney and beyond.

We ask the Lord to send us workers and supporters, for every level and every part of the ministry, who are willing and committed to serving Him and the community with their precious spiritual, professional and financial gifts. We pray and trust that His chosen workers will hear and respond to His calling, at the time of His choosing, to follow Him and to seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness.

At this particular time, we ask you to join us in prayer to the Lord for calling the appropriate workers to join the counselling team and the Pastors Renewal Ministry, in His good time.

We pray and hope for the new generation of workers who join the different part of this ministry that they will see with their own eyes, the wonders of how the love, comfort, mercy and grace of God flow through them to the people they come to serve, as we have personally experienced in the past 20 years.  Indeed, because of our own experience we are confident that their own lives will also be blessed as they bring many people His blessings and renewal of lives with faith, hope and love in Him.

May we all be encouraged by these words: 1) Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:58) and 2) let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)  

Blessings & Grace to you!
