親愛的牧師和弟兄姊妹:

“所以,要拿起神所赐的全副军装,好在磨难的日子抵挡仇敌,并且成就了一切,还能站立得住” 。(弗6:13)

在2019年的新的一年,轉眼之間一月份又即將過去。我們除了負責在北區的橄欖堂之外,還要兼顧華僑教會的團契。若不是上帝賜給我們的力量,加上弟兄姊妹的背後支持和禱告,我們每日的東奔西跑,面對語言上、文化上的挑戰,对事奉上的壓力頗大。

秘魯的交通意外非常高,因為人車爭路,加上這裡開車的人從不讓人,有幾次我們差點被計程車撞到了,所以每次過馬路都是要小心翼翼,我們好像加拿大的松鼠過馬路一樣。

我們在一月十三日的晚上,有機會去到了美國的奧蘭度,參加了一個一星期的World Team宣教會議,在這一個星期的學習當中,我們從其他宣教士的身上,更加學習到許多他們事奉的經驗。
“我们晓得万事都互相效力,叫爱神的人得益处,就是按他旨意被召的人” 。(羅8:28)

我們不斷鼓勵棷欖堂的弟兄姊妹成長,從剛剛開始時的一盤散沙,到他們漸漸懂得如何事奉,主也將得救的人數不斷增加,也從起初十個人以下的崇拜,到現在每次的出席人數,平均都有十七人以上,為此感謝主。

從二月份開始,在美國、加拿大和其他國家,會不斷有牧者來到秘魯協助事工發展,減輕事工在多處發展的負擔。我們在二月份,也報讀了語言學校的早上課程,繼續學習西班牙語。

親愛的牧者、弟兄姊妹,請為到我們的學習語言、身體健康、出入平安、弟兄姊妹的屬靈成長和求神带領賜给棷欖堂的發展方向禱告。

如果你需要联系我(Tony),我在秘鲁的电话号码是:961442966,我在WhatsApp上。

主內愛你們的,
光華和莉梅

Vineyard

January 2019

Dear Pastors, brothers and sisters:

Ephesians 6: “ Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand”.

In the new year 2019, January has flown by. In addition to being responsible for the Los Olivos community in the North side, we are also taking care of the Pueblo Libre fellowship.  If it was not for the power of God and the strength, support and prayer by our brothers and sisters, we would not have been able to face the linguistic and cultural challenges we meet every day. The pressure on our ministry is considerable.

The number of car accidents in Peru is very high due to people and cars vying for the road. Drivers never pay attention to pedestrians wanting to cross the road. We almost got hit by a taxi so we have to be careful crossing the road every time. We look like Canadian squirrels trying to cross the road.

On the evening of January 13, we had the opportunity to fly to Orlando, USA, to participate in a one-week World Team Americas Leaders meeting. During this week we learned how to start planting a Church. We also learned a lot from other missionaries who shared many of their experiences.

Romans 8:28 “ And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”.

In order for our brothers and sisters to grow in their spiritual walk with God we encouraged them to serve one another. Now we see how they gradually understand this and become more united into a community of believers. Also the number of people who believe in Jesus Christ has slightly increased. From less than ten people to an average number of 17 attendees today. Praise the Lord for His grace.

In February different pastors from the United States, Canada and other countries will come to Peru to assist in the development of our ministry. It is going to reduce the burden of serving in different locations for worship. Next to this we enrolled in a new morning class to continue learning Spanish.

Dear pastors, brothers and sisters, please pray for our language learning, physical health, peace and rest. Also pray for spiritual growth of our brothers and sisters in Lima and Gods direction in developing the Los Olivos community.


With Love in Christ,

Tony & Fiona
