黄恩德传道写于青海西宁

从圣经贯彻的教导及耶稣言行一致的榜样,基督徒当领悟到爱神爱人的大诫命不是一道选择题,而是必答题。教会就必须顺服这最大的诫命,按照圣灵的感动去关心社区的弱势群体。以下是我过去5年不断向大马华人教会建议承载大诫命的必然预备步骤。我把它浓缩成英文字串A.C.T.I.O.N.并称之为“爱神爱人的行动方案”。

Awareness needed,急需的关怀醒觉

大马华人教会需要在讲台信息及门徒培训上,供应信徒有关圣经对大诫命的要求与实践。 一年52周的主日崇拜,要透过基层、贫穷、世界需要的主日安排,来唤醒全体教会看见圈外羊的迫切情况。团契或小组当透过圣经的查考,关怀讲座及拜访或服务弱势群体来使教会的生活更活泼外向。教会的祷告生活当常纪念弱势群体、关怀人员、所属社区的需要并透过感恩的奉献来回应心中的感动。全人关怀团队每年都在全国各大城镇举办行公义、好怜悯相关的醒觉巡回,也常供应主日讲台关怀相关的信息。欢迎邀请全人的同工及督导前往贵教会的小组,团契,主日及差传年会宣讲关怀的醒觉信息。

Counterbalance our mission,平衡的福音使命

耶稣留给众教会的福音指示不单是大使命(去使万民做主门徒),还有华人教会所忽略的大诫命(尽全人爱神也爱人)。耶稣传讲的福音不单是为普世罪人所预备(因地上一个义人都没有),更是给贫穷人的好消息(因贫穷弱势最难得到福音的好处)。教会不能只用言语来告诉非信徒耶稣有多爱他们,更有效的是透过爱心的行动让人体会耶稣的爱。是时候神的百姓要透过全教会将整全的福音向全地上的人分享!全人透过每4年举办一次的“大马基督徒全人关怀研讨会”,希望能调整华人教会福音使命的步伐,更趋向平衡并满足神的心意。错过了今年第一届研讨会的肢体,可以订购我们为你制作研讨会全套14堂重要信息的CD/DVD来禰补缺憾。

Training of volunteers,全面的志工培训

华人教会不缺乏有异象有恩赐的好撒玛利亚人。他们都是一颗颗等待牧长发掘、鼓励并差遣他们走向人群服侍的珍珠。但华人教会缺乏的是能装备他们兼具助人技巧,关怀常识及怜悯心肠的实际课程。过去培训全国宗教团体,非政府组织及关怀机构超过2000名志工的经验说服我,全面的志工培训不单能避免有心关怀的人越帮越忙,还能确保志工在助人的路上跑得更远,更喜乐。未来10年,全人将透过“7979全人关怀站”的方案,协助教会强化自身堂会的关怀服务。我们将免费提供志工培训来协助教会开展急难家庭的救助,经济弱势孩童的课后陪读班及重大灾难的回应。

圣经清楚指出神的百姓若没有异象就不做神要他们做的事,反倒做些神不喜悦的事。因此当今教会需要凭信心按部就班地将爱神爱人的行动方案,落实在每位信徒的信仰生活上及教会的每个功能中。最大的诫命需要你我最大的顺服,你愿意透过顺服的行动来回应爱神爱人的诫命吗?(另外三个行动方案I.O.N.下期待续)

 

From the biblical teaching and the example of Jesus who walked the talk, Christian should realize that the Great Commandment of “Loving God and others” is not a choice but a must for us to abide. Thus, churches have to obey this Great Commandment to care for the underprivileged group in the community according to the move of Holy Spirit. Here I stated the necessary preparation steps which I proposed to Chinese churches continually for the past 5 years, about bearing the Great Commandment. I summarized it by the acronym of A.C.T.I.O.N. and named it as the action plan for loving God and others.

Awareness needed

Chinese churches in Malaysia should feed their members about the requirement and practice of the Great Commandment from the Bible through Sunday pulpit and disciple training. Keep all church members awake about the urgent needs of sheep outside the pen through Sunday service specially allocated for grass root, poverty and needs of the world. Church fellowship or cell group can enhance Christian lives to become more lively and outgoing through bible study, caring talk, and visit or voluntarily help the underprivileged group. Remember the underprivileged people, care-givers and the needs of the community in prayer regularly and give with a grateful heart to respond to the move of the Holy Spirit. Every year, HISTEAM will organize awareness road show regarding “to act justly and to love mercy” in different cities in Malaysia. We also deliver social concern related messages through Sunday pulpit. We welcome you to invite HISTEAM’s staff and mentors to share about social concern awareness message in your church cell group, fellowship, Sunday pulpit or Mission Conference.

 

Counterbalance our mission

The instruction given by Jesus to the church is not only the Great Commission (go and make disciples of all nations), but also the Great Commandment (love God and others wholeheartedly) that is being neglected by Chinese churches. The gospel that Jesus preached is not only for sinners of the world (as there is no one righteous) but also good news to the poor (as the poor and underprivileged hardly receive the good of the gospel). Churches could not just tell non-believers in words that Jesus loves them so much, but in a more effective way would be letting them experience Jesus’ love through our action with love. It’s time for God’s people to share the holistic gospel with people on the Earth through all churches! Through “Malaysian Christian Holistic Care Conference” which will be held in every four years, HISTEAM wish to adjust the pace of evangelistic mission among Chinese churches to be more balance and pleasing God. Those who miss our first holistic care conference can purchase a full set of conference CD/DVD to listen to 14 important messages being delivered.

 

Training of volunteers

Chinese churches do not lack of Good Samaritan with good vision and spiritual gift. They are pearls waiting for pastoral leader to discover, encourage and commission to serve the community. However, Chinese churches lack of practical courses that can equip them with helping skills, general knowledge to care others and a compassionate heart. My past experience in training more than 2000 volunteers from religious group, non-government organization and social organization nationwide convinced me that comprehensive volunteer training not only can avoid the helper to deteriorate the situation, but also ensure them to serve in longer term and more joy. In the next 10 years, HISTEAM will assist churches to strengthen their social concern service through “7979 Holistic Care Station”. We will provide free volunteer training to assist churches in implementing Crisis Family Intervention Plan, After School Care for Underprivileged Kids and Major Disaster Response.

 

Bible clearly stated that if God’s people do not have vision, they will not do what God wants them to do but working on something God does not delight in. Hence, the church today needs to carry out this action plan of loving God and others steps by steps and by faith in the spiritual life of every believers and every function of the church. The Greatest Commandment needs our greatest obedience. Are you willing to respond to this great commandment through your submissive act?

(Note: The next 3 action I.O.N.  to be continued in next issue.)

(I) 要心动行动,先从拥抱开始。

2010-09-16,历时四天三夜的“第一届大马基督徒全人关怀研讨会”走入尾声。这是大马华文教会及基督教关怀机构一个充满历史性的一刻。在此次研讨会,共有410人出席。其中参加者329人,讲员38位,志工32位与筹委11位。参与的教会达81间,49家机构与44家参展摊位。这一切的一切是神所成就的美事。

我们向神献上赞美与感谢。许多教会与弟兄姐妹经过本届研讨会的“洗礼”,再次被神激励,被圣灵充满。大家一致看见社区关怀使命的重要,心动就要行动。我们必须拆除“教会围墙”,本着“爱神爱人”理念走入并服务社群,这是我们基督徒共同肩负的使命。

研讨会结束前,袁婷蓉牧师邀请各教会牧长与关怀机构的同工,彼此拥抱与认罪。盼望借此机会,教会与关怀机构的关系得以修复,和好与合一。让我们打破藩篱,毫无嫌隙,一同携手走出教会,进入人群。以爱拥抱世界,建立合一教会,完成神所赐下的大使命与大诫命。

To Act in Compassion, Starts from Hug!

On Sept 16, 2010, the 4D3N of “First Malaysian Christian Holistic Care Conference” came to an end. It was a historical moment for Chinese churches and Christian social organization in Malaysia. There is total of 410 people attended this conference with 329 participants, 38 speakers, 32 volunteers and 11 committee members. There are 81 participating churches and 49 participating organizations and 44 Christian social organizations involved in Caring Ministry Exhibition. These are wonderful work of God!

We give all praise and thanksgiving unto our God. After the “baptism” of this conference, many churches, brothers and sisters were being revived by God and filled with Holy Spirit. In one accord, we see that it’s important to fulfill the mission to care about our community and act when we are moved. We should tear down the “wall” of church, by abiding the Great Commandment of loving God and others; we walk into the community and serve them. This is the mission that we Christian should shoulder together.

Before the conference ended, Rev June Yuen invited all church pastors and care-givers to embrace, confess, and forgive one another. Prayerfully through this opportunity, relationship between churches and social organizations will be restored and united as one in Christ. Let’s break the barrier that hinder us to go out, set aside all dissension and walk into the community hands in hands. Embrace the world with love, build the church in unity, and accomplish the Great Commission and the Great Commandment entrusted by God.

(II) 最新进展 Latest Updates

大会期间,推介了3个社区关怀的模式,并寻求教会成为伙伴,一起配搭!以下是有关事工的最新进展。

Three innovative service models have been introduced during the conference, and seeking partnering churches to work together. Following are some latest updates:

a. 7979全人关怀站 Holistic Care Station

许多教会牧者及领袖邀请全人关怀团队前往教会分享这模式。 其他出席研讨会的弟兄姐妹也答应把这模式带回教会,与教会牧者领袖分享,考虑加入此行列。 神也赐下许多这事工所需要的资源:有一位姐妹愿意加入全人成为陪读班协调员的全职同工,有弟兄为我们架设网站——宣传及推广7979,有一姐妹为我们设计行动外套或T-恤,也有弟兄愿意赞助2位同工去台湾受训的机票。

Many church pastors have invited HISTEAM to share this caring model in their church. Other brothers and sisters who have attended this conference also promise to share this model with their church pastors and leaders. God also grants us many resources that we need. These include a sister who is willing to join HISTEAM as full time staff to co-ordinate “Companionship Class for Underprivileged Children” programme, a brother who will help us to design and develop a website to promote 7979 ministry, a sister who is willing to help us to design “Care in unity” vest or T-shirt. Besides that, a brother agreed to sponsor air ticket for 2 staffs to attend training in Taiwan after hearing our ministry and needs.

b. 大马餐馆福音团契 Restaurant Gospel Fellowship

一位参加研讨会的牧师答应每个月一次参与餐福夜间的聚会并分享信息。禧福的一位姐妹受托负责这事工。透过符梅萍牧师的带领,我们联络了多间餐馆,其中有6间餐馆愿意让我们进去与他们分享福音(他们大多数的员工都是缅甸人,也有从缅甸来的华裔),并在这6间餐馆里成立了2个小组。有2间教会愿意在晚上11 :30开放,让我们在里面聚会。在聚会当中发现有很多缅甸来的外劳,他们不明白我们的方言。神竟然早已感动了两位缅甸牧师,愿意与我们同工,一起来服侍这班缅甸外劳。

A pastor who has attended this conference, agreed to help in preaching to the workers in restaurant during their gathering in the midnight once a month. A sister from Jubilee Initiative is in charge of this ministry. With the help of Rev Foo Moy Peng, they have contacted many restaurants, in which 6 restaurants welcome them to share gospel with them (most of the workers there are Myanmarese, some are Chinese Myanmarese) and set up 2 cell groups among the 6 restaurants. There are 2 churches lending their premises for these fellowships to meet at 11.30pm. The Myanmarese does not understand our dialect, but God has sent 2 Myanmarese pastors who will partnership with us to serve this group of Myanmarese migrants.

c. 圣诞儿礼 Operation Christmas Child

善普施的代表Rev Bill Klear分享过去一年连接本地异象持有者的努力,祈望在来年能成立大马全国领袖团队来执行圣诞儿礼的事工。研讨会中,Bill Klear牧师用心地以华语分享,透过当地教会派发来自遥远国家的礼物给贫穷孩子之运动,祈望华人教会,愿意派送圣诞礼物,将爱与福音,一起传送到大马最大的福音未得之民手上。此崭新的事工,有待即将成立的全国领袖团队于2011年落实在大马这片土地上。

For the past one year, representative from Samaritan Purse, Rev Bill Klear has been working hard to share and network some local vision holders to form a national leadership team so that they can carry out the ministry of Operation Christmas Child. In the conference, Rev Bill Klear has shared in Mandarin about this movement of distributing gifts from faraway to poverty-stricken kids through local churches. Prayerfully the Chinese churches are willing to share the love and good news of Jesus by giving out Christmas gifts to the largest unreached group in Malaysia. This new ministry will be implemented in Malaysia when the national leadership team is formed in 2011.

附注:欲更深入了解以上创新策略者,欢迎联络大会秘书处,全人关怀团队。

Remark: Feel free to contact HISTEAM for further information and updates of these innovative strategies mentioned above.

正如夏忠坚牧师所言:散会不是结束,而是开始。研讨会结束后,得到许多教会的认同与积极的回应,特别是所推介的3项创新策略。此研讨会的大会秘书处会继续运作,为连结众教会的关怀事工及一些崭新的关怀方案,并为下一届的研讨会作准备。我们也邀请了约30位在大马不同区域的牧者领袖成为区域推广及联络人。这是为了协助推广研讨会出版的书籍,落实合一关怀外套及跟进研讨会所推介的创新策略与其他关怀事工。更多详情请浏览大会部落格。

As mentioned by Rev James Shia in the conference, dismiss is not an end but a start. After this conference, we received positive response and acknowledgement from many churches, especially the 3 innovative strategies introduced. The secretariat of the conference will continue to operate in order to update churches about the progress of these innovative strategies and prepare for the next conference. We have invited about 30 pastors and leaders from different area in Malaysia to be our Regional Promote and Contact Person. This is to assist the promotion of a book with conference messages collection, “Care in Unity” Vest and follow-up the innovative strategies and ministry introduced in the conference.

(III) 参加者感言。。。 Feedback from participants…

爱与关怀瓶颈中的帮补

双福创办人沈秋香

2009年至2010年极力于整顿内部,骇然发现同工们都处于疲乏状态。同工与事工所料未及的大变动,人事的问题,一桩接着一桩。智力与心力大受考验,在祷告中寻求神的旨意,感谢神的怜悯与垂听。神为我们预备了“大马基督徒全人关怀研讨会”。

当全马各地教会与机构踊跃的参与,在神的爱里相聚,我感受到那份群策群力的和睦美善。大会根据教会与机构所需,安排国内外牧者浇灌教导,也邀请机构领导同工以工作学习坊带领学习;让心中的负担拥有具体的方向与模式。

参加研讨会,身体休息,心灵则是充实。其实教会与机构是互相配搭完成使命的肢体,却常以各自的标准而自雇围墙。最后一天我看到谦卑的灵,相爱的心;教会与机构代表,互相道歉,彼此拥抱,这是一股暖流,流向和睦蒙神喜悦的道路。

上帝竟然用这四天的领受来装备我,让我面对事工上遭遇的问题。虽然困顿伤痛,但我坚信上帝必会帮助双福。当然我必须先在神面前认罪悔改,并且以感恩及顺服的心来调整自己。而7979全人关怀策略是很震撼性的推动。我看见福音关怀的大阵容,神要兴起各教会,各个弟兄姐妹团队冲锋,抢救受困的灵魂。

我与同工们再次地省思。谁是我的邻舍?是我们身边朝夕共事的同工?我们是不是太熟悉了,成了惯律的断定,而为难对?真的犹如讲员所说,我们很有爱心款待求助者,却没有耐心爱日久相处的同工。马太福音22章:37-39节:“你们要尽心、尽性、尽意爱主你的神,这是诫命中的第一,最大的其次也相仿,就是要爱人如己。”爱神,与人和好,是最要紧的事。起冲突时学习放下自己的着眼点,才会有全面性的视野。

有一天早晨,一位姐妹来访。这位姐妹是个心理学博士也是教授,她带领她的学生来关心我们。她说她一直在找双福。我问她如何认识双福。她说:在全人关怀研讨会的事工展览的会场上,她看到中心三个残障朋友也许行动不方便,也许说话不清楚,但是她们喜乐的心,让她很感动。

感谢神,祂的爱常在生活中充满安慰与恩典。

An exit in the bottleneck of love and care

Written by Shen Chiu Hsiang, founder of Shuang Fu

From 2009 till 2010, as I restructure internal organization greatly, shockingly I found out that co-workers were in fatigue state. This unexpected big change among co-workers and within the ministry causes a lot of personnel problems. My intelligence, mental and physical efforts were greatly being challenged. I prayed to God and seek His will. Thank God, He has answered my prayer and prepared this “Malaysian Christian Holistic Care Conference” for us.

When churches and organization from all over Malaysia taking part in this conference actively, in the midst of gathering in God’s love, I could feel the harmonious and beautiful of the collective wisdom and effort. The working committee invited speakers from both overseas and local to nurture and teach us according to the needs of churches and organizations. They also invited leaders from various social organizations to share their experience through workshop.

Attending this conference, my body can have a rest but my soul is full. Actually, churches and organization are the best body to accomplish God mission hands in hands but most of the time we build our own wall using our own standard. On the last day, I saw spirit of humility and loving heart. Representatives of church and organization apologized to one another and hug one another. This is a warm current that flow to harmony, the path that pleases God.

God actually equip me through these 4 days of conference to face the problems I met in my ministry. Although I was hurt and exhausted, I strongly believe that God will help Double Blessing. Of course, we need to confess our sin and repent before God first, and then adjust ourselves with a heart of thanksgiving and obedience. On the other hand, the strategy of 7979 Holistic Care Station is an impressive push. I foresee the great battle formation of gospel and care. God will revive every church and brothers and sister to charge and save the oppressed souls.

I reflect with my co-workers about these questions again: Who is my neighbour? Is he/she the one that we work together every day in the centre? Are we too familiar with one another and become a habit and law to judge one another, embarrassing others? As the speaker mentioned, we are kind to treat those we need our help, but no patience for co-worker who lively together for quite some time. In Matthew 22:37-39, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. ”Love God and befriend with people are the most important things. When argument arises, learn to put down own point of view, then only you can see thing clearly from entire view.

One morning, a sister visited me. She is a PhD holder in psychology cum professor. She brought her students along and said that she was looking for Shuang Fu. I asked her how she gets to know Shuang Fu. She said, in the exhibition in conjunction with Holistic Care Conference, she saw 3 disabled friends from our centre, maybe they are not convenient in action, perhaps their talking are not clear, but their joyful heart truly touched her.

Thank God, His love fills our life, give us comfort and grace.

 

(IV) 参与者积极的回应

杨淑贤传道:感谢神赐恩,有机会参与“第一届大马基督徒全人关怀研讨会”。短短4天三夜的研讨会,像一条项链,一环扣一环。每个环节虽有独立内容,却是有连贯性,有整体性的。透过资深讲员们的信息,牧者们的专题分享,前线同工们的工作坊与经验之谈,很成功地带出上帝最大诫命的连贯性和整体性。同时也呼吁大马众教会合一,去完成上帝最大的诫命。不单全心、全性、全意、全力,爱主我们的神,也要爱人如己。

Lana: 你们所举办的关怀研讨会,做得很好。参加者的回应都说讲员满有恩膏,那些深触心灵的问题使他们扎心流泪。愿神唤起沉睡的巨人,教会兴起,活出他们的命定及向绝望者欢唱。这是全人在马来西亚教会,举办及协调国度事工的里程碑。

Dato Sri Idris Jala: 我们还有许多可以为我们的百姓及国家进行的事。若我们尽我们的本分及祷告,神的手必临到这土地。

洪信慧传道:很多人都懊恼错过了这么好的东西,参加的人都赞不绝口。希望心动、口动,还要有行动。

一些匿名参加者的回应:

很感恩能够参与这样的研讨会,很有建设性,让我之前面临的问题,都在这里找到答案。有机会接触及认识不同关怀事工的信息,带来个人更多的看见和帮助,甚至提升对神的信实,和祂的带领。

这是一个合时的研讨会。希望第二次举办研讨会时,我们能看到这次研讨会所宣告,所计划的事工成立。我也察觉研讨会的同工及志工都全心全意,尽心尽力的为研讨会投身,使研讨会可以顺利进行。赞美主!

Positive responses from the participants

Pr Khin Wai Yi: Thank God for this great opportunity to attend “First Malaysian Christian Holistic Care Conference”. In this short period of 4 days and 3 night’s conference, it’s like a necklace, chained one by one. Every session, it’s of independent content but with continuity and integrity. Through the messages of experienced speakers, plenary sharing of pastors and experience sharing of frontline co-workers in workshop had successfully brought out the continuity and integrity of the Greatest Commandment.  At same time, churches are called to accomplish the Great Commandment entrusted by God in unity. Not only to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and with all our strength, but also to love our neighbours as ourselves.

Lana Wong: Well done for organising the Holistic Care Conference. Feedback from participants was the speakers were truly anointed and make all of them cry with all the deep soul searching questions. May God truly wake up the sleeping giant and the church to rise up to its destiny and sing a song to the hopeless. This is a benchmark for HISTEAM in organising and co-ordinating the churches, ministries in West and East Malaysia.

Dato Sri Idris Jala: We have a lot to do for our people and country. If we all do our bit & pray, the Lord’s hand will be upon this land.

Pr Mary Hung: Many people were upset because they have missed this wonderful conference. People who have attended commend that this conference is beyond all the praises. I hope that they are not only being moved in their heart and mouth but also they live it out in their action.

Anonymous comment from some participants:

- I’m truly grateful that I can attend this conference. It’s constructive; I’ve found the answer for the question that I’m troubling before this. I have the chance to get to know different caring ministry. From their sharing I gain a lot of insights, even enhance my faith in God for His faithfulness and guidance.

- It’s a timely conference. Hopefully in the next conference, what this conference has declared and planned will come true. I also notice that the co-workers and volunteers of the conference were serving wholehearted and make the conference run smoothly. Praise the Lord!

毓言又止

不知不觉,在全人关怀团队的服事已有四个多月了。时间过得真快。回头想想,在这段期间发生了很多事,也让我经历生命的丰盛。在全人服事,真的学习到很多东西:在圣经上的知识、属灵生命的成长、生活点滴等。

每个星期五中午,我们都有一个禁食祷告。我们为着一些感恩事项、事工、他人的需要,以及个人的事情来代祷。有时传道还会跟我们分享一些课题,例如:马大和马利亚的故事。这个故事提醒我,生活上,我们时常都为着某些事情而忙碌。在忙碌的时候,我们是否有给予一些时间来和阿爸天父聊天?

每一个星期天,我会和传道到不同的教会服事。虽然会重复听传道分享一些关怀的信息,但是,当我越听越多次的时候,我的领受也渐不一样。这是传道常所引用的一段经文: “因为我饿了,你们给我吃;我渴了,你们给我喝;我作客旅,你们接待我;我赤身露体,你们给我衣服穿;我病了,你们看顾我;我在监里,你们来看我。义人就回答说,‘主啊,我们什么时候见你饿了就给你吃,渴了就给你喝呢?又什么时候见你作客旅就接待你,赤身露体就给你衣服穿呢?或者什么时候见你病了,或在监里就来看你呢?’王要回答他们:‘我实在告诉你们,你们所作的,只有是作在一个最小的弟兄身上,就是作在我的身上了。’” (新译本,马太福音25章35节到40节)

当我第一次听的时候,并没有领受到什么,可能也没思考到这段经文所讲的是什么意思。但是,最近当我听到这段经文的时候,我有所领受了。有时候,当我们因着上帝的爱,帮助一个最让人看不起眼的人时,也许别人会嘲笑你,说你傻,说你多管闲事。上帝却是很看重这一个人的。因为上帝说,我们既作在祂这弟兄中一个最小的身上,就是作在祂身上了。上帝很看重我们每一个人,尤其是在这世上的贫穷人。

有一次,我和嘉媚去探访一个急难的家庭。当我进到他家的时候,我看到了两样事情。第一,是那位急难家庭的妈妈,她已经七老八十了,每个星期都为着孩子的缘故,而劳碌工作。家里的老伴因病不能工作,她只好努力工作,希望能赚点钱帮补家用。独生女有精神上的问题,导致她也不能工作。母亲辛劳的付出,女儿却不晓得。女儿没吃药的时候,会随时随地乱打人、推人。有一次妈妈被这女儿推到,跌伤了,女儿却不知道。妈妈忍着痛,继续为着女儿忙碌奔波。妈妈非常担心她以后的生活费。从这妈妈身上,我看到了她愿意为着她的女儿,无怨无悔的付出。即使她受到任何的伤害,她从没埋怨过。第二,是她的独生女虽然生病,身旁没有朋友,但她愿意向别人询问如何向上帝祷告。她愿意学习向上帝祷告。

身为基督徒的我们,上帝赐给我们有祷告的权柄。很多时候,我是不是不愿开口向上帝祷告呢?还是我已经很久没和上帝祷告了?为什么我不祷告?这是值得我去思考,也是我要去学习的。即使再怎么样的忙,我总是要花时间和上帝聊天。有人的地方,一定会有问题。有时候,上帝要我们在面对困难的时候,晓得如何把所面对的事交托于祂。祂要我们晓得如何来到祂的面前,脱下一切的缠累。这门很难的功课,祂要我们学习。

在这里,每一次的服事都不一样。忙碌有时,工作有时。我真的要感谢上帝。因为祂让我有机会到不同的教会为祂去服事。虽然有时真的很累,但是,是值得的。

今年,是我到过最多不同教会服事的一年。

今年,是我经历上帝最丰盛的一年。

今年,是我学习祂话语最多的一年。

今年,是我被关心最多的一年。

今年,是我得到最多祝福的一年。

今年,是我最特别的一年。

今年,真的是恩典的一年。上帝让我生活上都不至于缺乏,祂保守看顾我。祂带领着我渡过每一天。

 

 

平安!成立短短的三年里,《全人》同工马不停蹄地将爱神爱人的诫命传递到全马各地。我们至少拜访了全马超过300间华人教会。透过宣讲,教导与培训鼓吹教会从事各种的关怀弱势群体的行动。我们也本着与哀哭的人同哀哭的精神,动员基督徒的资源一同回应了国内外至少7个重大灾难的赈灾行动。今年九月,《全人》也促成了大马华人教会一件美事,成功举办了“第一届大马基督徒全人关怀研讨会”。我们盼望透过“7979全人关怀站”的模式,鼓励众教会一同回应身边邻舍的急难与贫穷。父神不断地扩张我们的服侍与团队成员,从草创期的一位全时间同工增加到目前的7位。父神果真使用祂所设立的团队来荣耀祂。

《全人关怀团队》于2007年11月30日诞生在莎亚南的哥打甘文宁(Kota Kemuning),必定有神的美意与命定。开展事工前我们向神单纯的祷告是求神预备慷慨的主内肢体免费租借闲置的产业供事工使用。神真好!祂在事工开创期为我们预备了一间双层排屋,我们使用它供办公,培训,聚会及同工,志工,访客的住宿用途。由于同工及志工人数的急速增加,人满为患,我们再次向父神求,希望能找到一个让同工专心办公的地方。父神果真信实! 今年9月祂感动一位慷慨的姐妹,呈出她的一层办公楼供《全人》免费使用。成立《全人》三年后,终于有办公楼可用了,哈利路亚!

着简朴与适用的原则,《全人》首10年的事工发展都尽量避免筹募自己的建筑或中心产业。这次装修及预备《全人》新的办公楼,我们都使用超过50%的二手家具,电器,装修材料及配备。然而“工欲善其事,必先利其器”,我们朴实的装修及不能少的配备安装,也需要将近马币45,000才能让《全人》有效地运作。我们凭信心开展装修工程,并相信神会在《全人》庆祝三周年之前供应我们所需的一切。欢迎你出席30/11(星期二), 7pm 在沙亚南新生命复兴教会的《全人》三周年感恩庆,一同数算神的恩泽。你能带给我们最棒的礼物就是奉献《全人》新办公楼的装修费用。谢谢你,因你对神的爱丰厚满溢,毫无保留,我们在前线的服侍就越发放胆,满有能力!

“…… 既然开始了这慈善的事,就应当在你们那里把这事办好。你们在一切事上,就如信心、口才、知识、热情和爱我们的心,既然都是富足的,那么,在这慈善的事上,也要显出你们是富足的。”林后8:6-7

Shalom!

In these 3 years time since establishment, we have been working non-stop to deliver the message of The Great Commandment of “Loving God and Others” to churches in all over Malaysia. We have been visited to more than 300 Chinese churches in Malaysia. We encourage and mobilize churches to care for the underprivileged group in any practical way they can through preaching, teaching and training given. With the spirit of mourn with those who mourn, we have mobilized Christian resources to respond to at least 7 major disaster relief in and out of Malaysia. In the September this year, HISTEAM has created a good platform among Chinese churches in Malaysia by organizing the “First Malaysian Christian Holistic Care Conference”. In this year also, we are encouraging Chinese churches to respond to the crisis and poverty of their neighbours through the caring model of “7979 Holistic Care Station”. God is enlarging our serving and team members gradually, from one full time worker during pioneering stage till 7 staff at present. God indeed uses this team that is established by Him to bring glory to Himself.

I strongly believe that God has beautiful plan and purpose for HISTEAM to be set up here in Kota Kemuning in Nov 30, 2007. Before we start this ministry, our naïve prayer to God is asking God to provide us generous brothers or sisters in Christ who can lend us their unused property for ministry purpose. God is good! In our pioneering stage, He provides us a double storey link house, so that we can use it as office, training centre, meeting place and hostel for staff. As the number of staff and volunteers is increasing rapidly, the house is overcrowded, so we pray to God again to ask for an office premise so that our staff can concentrate in working. God is truly faithful! In September this year, a sister in Christ agreed to lend HISTEAM an office shop lot for free. Praise the Lord! Finally we have an actual office for HISTEAM after 3 years of establishment.

By upholding the principle of simple and practical, HISTEAM will try its best not to fund-raised for own building or property for the first 10 years of ministry development. Even like this time, for the renovation and preparation for HISTEAM new office, we use more than 50% of second hand furniture, electrical appliances, materials for renovation and other equipment. However, as the Chinese saying goes: “Sharpen your tool before tackling a task”, our simple renovation and installation of necessary equipment cost about RM 45,000 in order to enable us to run our ministry effectively. By faith we start the renovation and trust in God that He will provide what we need before we celebrate our 3rd Anniversary. We welcome you to attend HISTEAM 3rd Anniversary celebration at 30/11/2010 (Tue) 7pm in New Life Restoration Centre, Kota Kemuning, together we count the grace of God. The greatest gift you can bring for us is to give offering towards HISTEAM new office renovation and equipments. Thank you! Because of your overflowing love to God, without any reserve, thus our serving in frontline will be more boldly and full of power!

“ 6… since he had earlier made a beginning, to bring also to completion this act of grace on your part. 7But just as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us—see that you also excel in this grace of giving. ”                                                      2 Cor 8:6-7

欢迎各位报名参加这有“全人关怀研讨会”秘书处主催的合一关怀标志设计比赛。详情如下:

I. 《合一关怀标志》的异象:

让动员华人基督徒在服务社区,救助急难及回应灾难的行动更体现合一,更高举基督,更心动行动。

II. 《合一关怀标志》的信念:

1. 神身体(教会)的合一(结11:19; 约17:22)

-希望教会让爱走动社区的行动不再一盘散沙,而是学向三一神的合而为一。让国土受惠及围观的人相信我们是被同一位神所感动,所差派,所爱戴。

2. 主(基督)的名被高举(诗34:3;门6)

-希望教会因真实祈望天国的降临而不再高举宗派或组织的旗帜,而是单纯将善事都为基督而作,做在基督身上并让基督的名被推崇。

3. 心动行动地关爱邻舍(可12:30-31;路10:36-37)

-希望教会因顺服大诫命而愿意不再冷漠,而是在邻舍的需要上看到自身的责任,愿意主动出击,走入人群,爱神爱人。

III. 《合一关怀标志》设计的基本要求:

1. 图案设计- 让人一眼认出这是基督徒在行动。比如:十字架

吁请教牧领袖为此公开聚会及展览会的重点节目宣传,呼吁会友出席参加,一同以行动来回应。

巴基斯坦水患已经照成1,600死亡,2千3百万灾民生计大受影响。它不像地震灾难如此引人注目。2005年巴基斯坦西北地震已杀害8万人和29,000平方公里以内的2百万人。然而,这次的水患影响了更多的人,因为雨水连绵而导致水患蔓延至南部的低平原。再加上饮用水的污染,灾后将会照成水族传播的疾病,如霍乱,肝炎,伤寒和其他急性肠胃炎等。脆弱的经济景况中面对食物的短缺及对外国援助的依赖可能会成为社会动荡的雪球。由于缺乏媒体的高调报道再加上恐怖及极端分子的刻板阴影,使得回应灾难的人少之又少。

慨施(CREST),《全人关怀团队》的策略伙伴早在8月的第1周就透过巴沙瓦当地巴基斯坦的伙伴去分发食物喂养650名灾民。由于是穆斯斋月禁食的时段,因此“慨施”计划派发炊具和未煮过的食品。他们现在正准备家庭食品包,每包可供应一家人一个月需要的食品包花费是US$127 (MR$400)。从27/8至4/9期间,慨施也会差派一支7人组成的医疗团队。他们将运送3个集装箱可容纳3万公升的干净水、食物、新衣物及药物等供应。《全人关怀团队》率先将RM5,000交付我们的策略伙伴供目前紧急补发之需。

巴基斯坦这片土地急需要耶稣的怜悯,你会与灾民分享你的“五饼二鱼”吗?在此呼吁众教会先以祷告与金钱来回应这刻不容缓的需要。不要让上帝的怜悯与慈爱停在自己手中。让我们按着祂的心意,把手伸出去,以行动来安抚巴基斯坦的痛。

祷告回应:

在这个充满着强烈的敌意、绑架、爆炸和死亡的斋月里,我们邀请你与我们一起祷告来阻止黑暗权势并透过灾难回应带进神的光与爱。

  1. 水患已退去,只留下臭味和污秽的泥巴。许多人因此患上皮肤病,肚泻和急性呼吸系统疾病。求神将所需的药品及医治速速临到灾民!
  2. 为马来西亚、新加坡和巴基斯坦的基督徒灾难回应团队祷告。让大家能够彼此合一,充满美善、慷慨、恩典、怜悯和恩膏地服侍当地灾民。
  3. 为着赈灾团队的签证能够在星期四(26/8/2010)顺利通过并求神保守在地食品、水源、住宿和交通的安排。让赈灾团队服侍的医疗诊疗所和食品派发的地方可以有良好的安全措施。
  4. 祷告让“以实玛利”的祝福被释放,被遗弃的孩子重新回到亚伯拉罕、以撒和雅各的神。
