親愛的牧師和弟兄姊妹:

以弗所書 5:8-10 “從前你們是暗昧的,但如今在主裡面是光明的,行事為人就當像光明的子女。光明所結的果子就是一切良善、公義、誠實。總要察驗何為主所喜悅的事

最近接到了一位弟兄的电话,他说他需要我們的帮助,摆脱他的毒瘾。我们去了他的餐館,他直接告诉我们他再次吸毒。他嘗试控制自己不吸毒,但他无法做到。他过去曾經有相信耶稣基督,但他的生命从未改变过。他意识到这会影響他的家人,他不知道该怎么办?我们向他解释说,他必须倚靠神,没有耶穌的帮助,他祇會害了自己。我们帮助他重新承认自己的罪,請求上帝原谅他,掌管他的生命。他的妻子是相信耶穌基督的,我们鼓励他和家人一起去教會。我们和他一起祈祷了好几天,希望他能与上帝建立良好的关系。现在我们每隔一周去拜访他,看看他的進展。到目前为止,他做得非常好,不再沉迷于毒品。

我们通过微信建立了一个讀經群組,我們每天在微信中,寫出弟兄姊妹必须阅读的圣经章节,这是一個新的嘗試。當他們完成所閱读的圣经章节,必須透過微信「已读」作回应。这个读经群組运作良好,我们希望看到他们的灵命生命成長,学会与上帝同行,在他们的生命成长中幫助他們。

在三月份開了一次同工会议,棷欖堂的同工有共同的認識,都希望找到一個新的聚會和敬拜的地方。現在他們使用的地方,是租借宣道會教會學校的一個課室,發展有所限制。他們祈禱上帝給他們一個自己的地方,讓弟兄姊妹有一個真正屬於上帝的家庭,進一步發展棷欖堂的事工。

在 3 月 19 日,我们去餐館再次探访一对非信徒,邀请他们出席餐福的午夜聚會,我们不确定他们是否会来。到了午夜聚會時間,他们真的來參加出席,所有弟兄姊妹都熱情欢迎他们。在 326日的星期二晚上,我們在微信上向他们問候,説耶稣愛他们,他们在微信上回应,他们也爱耶稣。当他们回微信他们爱耶稣时,我們问他们是否愿意相信、接受耶稣基督作为他們的救主和生命的主,他们说愿意相信接受。所以在第二天的下午,我們和棷欖堂一個弟兄,去到他們的餐館,向他們講解清楚耶穌基督的救恩,他们都承认他们的罪,接受了主耶稣基督作为他们的救主和生命的主。

在过去的一個月,我们居住的地方,再次發生槍擊案。Miraflores的市政府,為了防止事件再度發生,加強了保安的措施,來保障游客和居民的安全。感謝主!這裡雖然不斷出現危險,但仍然是一個安全的地方。

我们将于58日至61日返回加拿大,逗留3個星期,到各教會分享秘魯的事工,這包括我们的母会,賓顿市华人浸信会和其他教会。我们非常感激和感谢教会的邀请和他们对利马地方的支持。
親愛的牧者、弟兄姊妹,請為到我們學習西班牙語言、身體的健康、秘魯的治安、弟兄姊妹的屬灵生命成長和橄欖堂的發展禱告。

主內愛你們的,
光華和莉梅

Vineyard

March 2019

Dear Pastors, brothers and sisters:

(Eph. 5:8-10) “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord”.

Recently we received a call from a brother who said he needed help to get rid of his drug addiction. We went to his place and he told us directly that he was taking drugs again. He tried to stop, but he could not able to make it. He excepted Jesus Christ in the past, but his life had never changed. Being aware this would ruin his family he didn’t know what to do. We explained him that he must turn to God, and that without His help, he would destroy himself immediately. We helped him to confess his sin and urge God to forgive him and get involved in his life. We also encouraged him to go to church with his family knowing that his wife believes in Jesus Christ for quite a long time. We prayed with him for a number of days, hoping that he would build a good relationship with God. Now we visit him every other week to see his changes. He is doing fine so far and is no longer addicted to drugs.

We have established a new devotion group through WeChat. We show the brothers and sisters which chapters from the Bible they have to read daily. This is an honor system in which they respond with a check mark after they have been reading the text. This devotion group works well and we now hope to see their spiritual life grow. They learn to walk with God and grow to serve Him in their lives.

In addition, after the meeting, brothers and sisters in Los Olivos had a touch that they really would like to find a new place for worship and fellowship. They are waiting for God to move forward and give them a new location. Until now we use a classroom, rented from the school, that is affiliated with the Alianza Church. They hope that God will give them a bigger place which would give them a better sense of belonging to God’s family and from which they can further develop His ministry in Los Olivos.

Last week, on March 19 we went to visit a couple who are non-believers. We have tried to invite them to visit our midnight service. At that time, we were not sure whether they would come or not. They showed up that midnight and all welcomed them. Tuesday night March 26 Tony reached out to them on WeChat and mentioned that Jesus loves them both. They both responded they love Jesus too. When they wrote back that they love Jesus Tony continued to ask them if they wanted to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. They said they would like to accept Him. So Tony said we will come to see them the next day. Praise the Lord that afternoon we and one other brother were able to visit them and they confessed their sins and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior.

In the past three weeks, the place that we live had another gun shot fired. The Municipality of Miraflores has been doing a lot of security measurements and installed a protocol to protect residents and tourists in the neighborhood. Hence God protects the place it is still safe, peaceful and secure.

We will return to Canada from May 8th to June 1st for 3 weeks of sharing. This includes our Mother Church, Brampton Chinese Baptist Church and other churches. We are so thankful and appreciative of those churches for their invitations and their support of the Lima Ministry.

Please continue to pray for our safety, peace and wisdom for learning Spanish and all of the Ministry of Lima.

With Love in Christ,

Tony & Fiona
