晨光嶄新輔導中心 FLC's New Counselling Centre

 
親愛的朋友及弟兄姊妹:
 
「願主—我們 神的恩寵歸於我們身上。 願你堅立我們手所做的工,我們手所做的工,願你堅立。」 (詩篇90:17)
 
我們以感恩與喜悅的心情向您發佈好消息。我們的事工服務社群二十四年後,終於有一個永久的固定會址了。 
 
我們感恩,是因兩年前有兩位基督忠心的僕人,為我們事工購買物業作出慷慨捐輸。我們在廣大地區物色適當的會址,經過謹慎籂選,於去年十二月購入鄰近 West Ryde火車站的一所物業。我們也感謝原業主對我們事工的支持,願意以低於市價出售。 
 
兩位同是建築師的基督徒夫婦,運用他們的超卓能力,為我們設計了嶄新的輔導中心,讓我們在未來數十年間可有效地服務教會以及社群。
 
經過所須的招標程序,我們現已聘用了建築商重新裝修輔導中心,在未來數周內開始動工。
 
我們須籌募十萬元,供裝修新中心和裝置配套設施。為此,我們懇切請求您給予誠心的支持和財政上的協助,使新輔導中心如期落成。
 
此外,也懇請您記念我們日常輔導與教育服務的開支。由於過去一年捐款數目不足,本財政年度我們已錄得九萬元赤字。我們從服務費所得的收益,不足以支付全部開支,所以事工也依賴各界捐款以維持財政所需。
 
您可以慷慨捐助嘛?兩元以上的捐款可以獲得稅款扣免,請致電 (02) 9211-9988 以信用卡捐款。或從我們的網頁  www.firstlightcare.org.au  下載捐款表格,再以銀行直接轉帳或以信用卡付款。如有任何問題,請致電 (02) 9211-9988 查詢。
 
我們對您多年來的誠意支持萬分感謝。我們祈求,透過本事工永續地與神同工,我們能夠不斷地把福澤和希望,帶給許多個人以及家庭,協助他們渡過生命中的難關和克服痛苦的挑戰。
 
願主的恩典和平安與您闔家同在!

Dear brothers, sisters and friends,
 
“May the favour of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands.” (Psalm 90:17)
 
We are very thankful and pleased to share with you some good news. After 24 years of serving the community, our ministry will now get a permanent home!
 
We are thankful that two years ago two faithful servants of Christ made a very generous donation specially dedicated to the purchase of a property for our ministry. After an extensive and careful search, we acquired an appropriate property very close to the railway station at West Ryde last December. We are thankful that the property was bought at well below market price because of the vendor’s support of our mission. 
 
A Christian couple who are both architects have helped us to design brilliantly the new counselling centre that will serve the church and community well for the decades ahead.
 
After a process of tendering, we have now engaged a builder for the renovation of the new counselling centre that will begin in the next few weeks when all regulatory requirements are completed.
 
We need to raise $100,000 to cover this special expenditure on renovation and furnishing of the new centre. We earnestly pray that the establishment of this new counselling centre will be completed with your prayerful support and financial help.
 
We also ask you to remember the needs of our general fund for running our counselling and education services. There is already a deficit of about $90,000 in the current financial year because donations have been very low throughout the year.  Our ministry primarily relies on donations to meet our financial needs as our income from service fees can only partly cover our total expenditure.  
 
Can you please help? You may make tax-deductible donations by telephone using credit card, please call (02) 9211-9988. You may also download a copy of the donation form from our website www.firstlightcare.org.au to make a donation to this cause, either by direct bank transfer or by credit card. Please call us at (02) 9211-9988 should you have any questions.
 
We thank you for your faithful support over the years. We pray that our continuing partnership in His works through this counselling ministry will continue to bring blessings and hope to many individuals and families who need help to deal with some difficult and painful challenges in their lives.
 
May God bless you and your family for all you do in His name!
 
In Christ,
 
Gerald Cheung
Centre Director
