以賽亞書 9:6 “因有一嬰孩為我們而生,有一子賜給我們,政權必擔在他的肩頭上。他名稱為奇妙、策士、全能的神、永在的父、和平的君”。 

十二月份是慶祝耶穌降生,這是耶和華的日子,是普天同慶的日子。如果祂沒有復活,我們也不會得救,所以我們要感謝我們的救主,因為我們都是祂的兒女。 

在12月初的時候,我們去拜訪了橄欖堂姊妹的弟弟,他是一個廚師,在他姊姊的餐館工作。他在秘魯已經有10年時間,他是一個不願意説話,非常內向害羞的人,他沒有一個正常的社交生活。他結了婚,有兩個兒子,一個是10歲,一個是6歲。有一天,他因為呼吸困難,有劇烈的咳嗽和左邊疼痛,送到醫院治療,他的診斷是肺與心臟之間有腫瘤。在12月18日的星期四,他進行了組織化驗,以確保腫瘤是良性或是惡性,請為他和他的家人禱告。

但是,我們也有好的消息分享,在我們的探訪之中,我與他分享福音,他非常樂意也非常渴望聽到耶穌故事,他願意相信耶穌基督成為他的救主。每次到醫院探望他的時候,他都會很開心地閲讀聖經,並且要聽福音的消息。(马太福音5:6 )「饥渴慕义的人有福了,因为他们必得饱足」。當我們在12月19日的星期五探訪他的時候,他在病床上顯得非常疲憊和困倦,但是我們仍然為他唱聖誕詩歌向他報佳音。 

這裡的學校已經放暑假,一直關閉到三月 ,我們探望了橄榄區的一些學校的學生,了解當地的學校是如何為學生慶祝生日,這是我們進入秘魯文化的硏究探索。我們參觀了一間名叫「Colegio ROBERT LETOURNEAU」的學校,它是屬於一間宣道會的教會學校,在秘魯的排名是前第九名。當他們的學生為生日的同學一起慶祝生日快樂,是生日的學生請客,同樣的如此類推,互相有機會。這是我們第一次與橄欖堂的兩位孩子的家人,一起參加如此大規模的生日活動。

教會在十二月慶祝聖誕節,San Borja教會的弟兄姊妹今年将去到Pueblo Libre教會,進行聯合慶祝聖誕節,大家一起努力忙着排練,等待着12月22日星期日的慶祝活動,這是為了我們的主耶穌降生的重要日子來臨榮耀祂。

感谢您們的祷告和支持,我们祝大家圣诞快乐。

主內愛你們的,
光華和莉梅

November 2019

Dear Pastors, Brothers and Sisters,

Ephesians 4: 2-6 “Be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called – one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all”.

 

Our World Team Leaders, Gary Clow and Marco and Marjolein Schuurmans came to Lima, Peru, to visit us. We had a very enjoyable time and discussed our ministry in Peru with them. One of the purposes is to recruit another brother and sister to Lima to serve this ministry together with us. We now serve as full-time missionaries of World Team in Lima. Praise the Lord and thank you all for your support in this ministry in Peru, serving God in reaching out to Chinese in Lima.

We plan to return to Canada before September next year to update our OHIP. After that we will return to Peru to renew our Carnet for another year. The tentative month is August and we will notify churches, Pastors, brothers and sisters about the dates in due time. We thank God that our Carnet has been renewed to be valid for 2020.

On Monday, November 25, we went to Lunahuana for another outing with the Pueblo Libre church. The purpose was to reach out to non-believers and to establish new relationships through Jesus Christ. We had 4 non-believers to whom Tony was able to teach one-on-one baptismal class on the bus. On the men’s fellowship of last Thursday, one of the brothers of Los Olivos asked for a second outing. We plan this for January 2020 as another ministry outreach activity where we hope to be able to minister to some more non-believers.

Tony still has a few other one-on-one baptismal classes to perform because some believers hope to be baptized in December. One of the church sisters has some problems moving her body, due to falling down in recent months. Another one is unable to attend the group baptismal class due to work. Therefore, we have to plan one-on-one classes. May the Lord give the people we work with a strong faith, confidence and protection. We’re thankful Fiona’s health returned to normal and her high blood pressure stabilized. We love to do Zumba fitness from Monday to Friday, this is good for our body, mind and social well-being.

Thank you for your prayers for our health, safety and protection because of this we can continue to support God’s ministry in Lima.


 
With Love In Christ,
Tony & Fiona
