2014 感 恩 寄 语(Grateful Word)

 

致西北国语教会亲人及朋友的信:

       在这11月丰收的季节里,我们心中充满了对主无尽的感激。“你以恩典为年岁的冠冕,你的路径都滴下脂油”(诗篇6511)。“年年岁岁花相似,岁岁年年不同”。对于西北国语教会来说,2014年既具有挑战又充满主恩。

       今年,教会成了“活水的泉源”、“流通的管道”西北教会是多人属灵的家,得救的港湾,以及与主相遇的“伯特利”( “神之面”之意)。我们欢迎了许多新朋友,也欢送(差派)了许多老朋友。

    1) 2-3月份,郭泽强老师、郭洛驿、刘英杰阿姨、万剑琴阿姨相继回国。奥克拉荷马的时光“好像耶稣给他们托的美梦”(郭泽强语),愿这美梦伴随他们一生。

    2) 5月份,我们送别了亲爱的SummerSunny同工。我们无法挽留,因为她们的未来肩负着上帝赋予的更大使命。

    3) 7-8月份,张锐和刘伟回国了。我们期待圣灵继续坚固他们在主里的生命。

      8月份苏彩霞老师和女儿Amy,律鹏弟兄和妻子朱艳芳及儿子故地重游。值得庆幸的是,苏老师、Amy
 和朱艳芳也借此宝贵机会,通过浸礼表达了他们一生追随主的决心。

      这时,茹雅大姐(小晨的妈妈)去了纽约。柴秀兰阿姨去了Portland

    4) 9月份,我们又将小晨和何砚送到了Tulsa,将周祥老师和周苓芝姐妹送回中国。他们作为主的门徒,无论走到哪里都会继续为主传福音作见证的。

        今年,委身的家庭尽上一切的力量来积极促进教会的成长

    1) 李景峰大哥和郭力冰姐每周开车3个小时从Weatherford到教会参加崇拜及服侍。

    2) 石玉民大哥大嫂、Helen姐带领员工一同敬拜上帝、服侍教会。在他们的影响下,几位员工(包括张婷婷、张艳洁、程艳春等)领受了浸礼。

    3) 湖南餐馆一家每月接待教会的商业(晚间)团契,并为教会提供感恩节聚餐。

    4) China House 的林春利弟兄、陈文林姐妹一家每周日为教会提供午餐。

    5) GregCarolyn一家每周积极参加教会的各项活动,并用爱心养育龙诗立和雅各。

    6) Nancy姐带领全家人和员工参加教会活动,并在信仰的道路上积极追求探索。

       今年,几位年轻的同工仍持之以恒地服侍教会。 

    1) 群富弟兄认真负责教会的财务,担任主持、主日学老师及取饭的侍奉。

    2) 云龙弟兄带领敬拜及每日在微信群里为大家诵读圣经。

    3) Linda姐妹用她智慧的双手装饰教会,每周为大家煲汤, 并在微信群里诵读灵命日粮。

    4) 晨啸弟兄不但每周五带领大家查经,还热心帮助大家解决电脑技术上的问题。

    5) 庞婉姐妹将她的恩赐献给上帝,每周日负责司琴。

    6) 伍成祥弟兄负责教会接待,并积极为主传福音,带人到教会来参加活动。

    7) 怡茹姐妹为大家发送灵命日粮,并在赞美团队中侍奉。

    8) 中华弟兄也刚加入赞美团队,并参与微信事工。

    9) 几位青少年:林杉,David, Michael, Jackson都在参与侍奉中得到了锻炼与成长。

        让我们同心合意地祈求主,

      * 保守教会的每位弟兄姐妹都能更加爱主,每日与主同行。

      * 感召更多的弟兄姐妹成为主的门徒,侍奉荣耀主。 

      * 带领牧师、师母、同工及所有弟兄姐妹,能更加积极为主传福音,使教会大大复兴。

      *  医治Nancy姐的疾病,并赐予她战胜病魔的能力与平安。

      * 使教会聚会的场所人数充满,座无虚席。

       再次感谢所有弟兄姐妹在过去一年里对教会的代祷、参与及奉献。祝大家感恩节快乐!愿西北国语教会末后的荣耀大大超过从前。

祝:主恩永偕!

Grateful Word

To Northwest Mandarin Church Family and Friends:

In this harvesting season of November, our hearts are full of gratitude. “You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance” (Psalm 65:11). “Year after year, the blossoms look alike, but the ‘grace’ will not remain the same.”  The year of 2014 has been both challenging and blessing to Northwest Mandarin Church.


In this year, our Church has become a “living spring” and a “flowing instrument.”  We are “spiritual home”, “salvation haven”, and “Bethel” (that is ‘encounter God’) for many souls. We welcomed new friends and said ‘farewell’ to many old friends as well.

   1) From February to March, Professor Guo, Louis Guo, Yingjie Liu, Jianqin Wan went back to China. Their lives in Oklahoma were like a “beautiful dream Jesus granted to them” (Zeqiang Guo said). May this dream be with them all the time! 

   2) In May, we said ‘farewell’ to our beloved coworkers: Sister Summer and Sister Sunny. We cannot hold them back because they will bear God’s greater mission for their future. 

   3) From July to August, Rui Zhang and Isaac Liu went back to China with our prayers and blessings.

           Meanwhile, Professor Su and her daughter Amy, Brother Lu Peng, his wife Yanfang Zhu and his son revisited their old haunts. Sister Su, Amy, and Yanfang Zhu took this precious opportunity to give themselves to Jesus Christ through baptism.  

      Also, sister Grace (Xiaochen’s mother) moved to New York and Aunty Chai to Portland.  

   4In September, we sent William Wu and Yan He to Tulsa, Professor Xiang Zhou and Sister Lingzhi Zhou to China. As the Lord’s disciples, they will continue to witness Jesus’ name wherever they go.

        In this year, some committed families kept on contributing their strength to the Church growth.

   1) Brother Jack Li and Sister Guo attended worship and serve others every Sunday through 3-hour driving from Weatherford.  

   2) Brother Shi’s family, Sister Helen led their coworkers to worship God and serve the Church. Under their influence, their many workers    came to the Lord and were baptized (including in Tingting Zhang, Yanjie Zhang, and Yanchun Cheng).  

   3) The family of Hunan Chinese Buffet welcomed our mid-night Professional Fellowship once a month and provided our Thanksgiving Dinner. 

   4) Brother Chunli Lin and Sister Wenlin Chen from China House provided our lunch every Sunday.

   5) The family of Pruett was involved in all church activities and nurtured their adopted sons David and Jacob with their parental love. 

   6) Sister Nancy led her whole family and coworkers to participate church activities and was eager to seek the truth.

        In this year, many young coworkers served the Church with wholeheartedly. 

   1) Brother Jeff was responsible for church finance, presiding worship, teaching Sunday school, and picking up food for gathering.  

   2) Brother Yunlong led the worship and read scripture for us through We-Chat daily. 

   3) Sister Linda decorated Church with her gifted hands, read Daily Devotion through We-Chat and cooked soups for us.  

   4) Brother Chenxiao led Friday Bible Study and assisted us to do troubleshooting for computers. 

   5) Sister Wan Pang played piano with her talent every Sunday. 

   6) Brother Michael Wu was responsible for reception and shared the gospel with his workers.

   7) Sister Yiru sent Daily Devotion through email every day and was involved in worship team. 

   8) Brother Richard joined worship team lately and supported We-Chat  ministry. 

   9) Many youth are growing by serving; they are Linshan, David Pruett, Michael Pruett, Jackson Li.

   Let us pray together that may the Lord

   * bless everyone in our Church to love the Lord deeply and walk with the Lord daily.

   * lead our pastor, pastor’s wife, coworkers and all brothers and sisters to share the gospel more effectively, and bring us revival.

   * call more people to become His disciples and glorify God with their whole lives.         

   * heal Nancy’s illness and give her power and peace.

   *  fill our gathering place with people without any empty seat.

     Thanks again to your prayers, participation, and offering in the last year. Happy Thanksgiving! May our dear
Lord bring us a more glorious future in His Kingdom!
 

Blessings,

Pastor Chunhai & Shasha
