「我感謝那給我力量的,我們主基督耶穌,因祂以我有忠心,派我服事衪。」        (提前1:12)

“I am thankful to Christ Jesus our Lord. He has given me strength. I thank him that he considered me faithful. And I thank him for appointing me to serve him.” (1Timothy 1:12)

默想禱告: 接獲爺爺發來簡短的郵件, 語氣中顯示多種情緒在起伏波動:「再次謝謝您給查經班同學的幫助。我們這裡有許多事情發生。星期六有追思禮拜。两周後有四位學生接受洗禮, 我們趕緊要與美國教會配合作好一切準備。神在我們當中行了大事。讚美衪的名!爺爺是印州惠普大學 (Valparaiso University) 中國留學生給吳超厚醫生尊敬的暱稱。他在這所位於中西部小城幽雅的大學校園中,數十年如一日地用愛心照顧無數的中國學生,是學生們在異地孤零零生活的隨時幫助, 也是他們的生活顧問、老師、醫生、心靈的導航者; 他的家總是為有需要的學生大開門户, 學生從他和藹可親, 溫柔敦厚的性情中體察出他信仰的核心:耶穌基督的形像, 反照著上帝慈愛憐恤的屬性。對他而言, 四位中國留學生信主受洗是一件大事, 因為每一個被無神論、物質主義、享樂主義拑制而重生得救的人, 心竅一打開, 整個世界觀接著也被更新扭轉, 將會帶給國內親友震撼性的影響力, 誰能預知神在這世代中所興起的屬靈領袖如遠志明、里程、王峙軍、劉同蘇、范學德…許許多多神所重用的僕人, 也許有一天神會按衪的旨意, 使用他們扭轉整個中國的民族命運, 因此海外的學生事工是何等有深遠的策略意義。自二十多年前早就風聞吳醫生在芝加哥華人社區為勞工階層作義診, 到我倆彼此相識快十年的歲月, 吳醫生給我一個難以磨滅的印象: 一副越來越精純煉淨的屬靈風範不斷在醞釀, 不斷在提昇, 感染著周邊的人。因著他的誠信忠心, 很多異鄉的游子找到了屬靈的家, 福音徹底改變了他們漫無目標的人生;也因著他委身服侍的榜樣有不少同路人被感召而加入全人事奉的行列。與爺爺親密無間的搭配同工龐敬輝牙醫就是他百分之百的生命樣版。他們俩一老一少, 一手一足, 一朝一夕, 全心全意地把心思投注在校園學生福音工作, 把信仰體現在生活的每個層面, 使用牙醫的職場作為關懷事工的起點, 把主耶穌的愛灌注在學生及家眷的身上, 以具體的愛心行動代替空泛的學術言詞, 以貼心的關顧展現出信仰的實質內容。生命影響生命”, 惟有充滿活潑動能的屬靈生命才會迸射出熱力四射的生命火花。出席王惠文姊妹 (另一位被學生尊稱為奶奶 的愛主使女) 的追思禮拜中, 我坐在爺爺 身旁, 他握著我涼涼的手, 一股温暖的熱量即時沁入我心, 深深感受到一種驅力觸動著我的心弦, 不知不覺中激發起我對事奉的熱誠, 從他身上印証了我的事奉方向, 從他為主燃盡發放的光熱我支取了新的動能,推動我一步步走向嶄新的事奉領域, 感恩禱告奉主耶穌聖名,阿們。(陳熾弟兄分享-請聽早年的創作詩歌 “主愛光照中華” 誠心為中國禱告) http://www.fuyin.tv/index.php/content/window/urlid/13057/movid/1217/vom/v

 

Meditation & Prayer: Dr. Stewart Wu wrote me a short email last week with mixed emotions: “Dear Mike, I want to thank you again for helping me out with the student who is in our Bible Study Group. There are many things going on with us here. A funeral Saturday. 4 students are going to be baptized in two weeks. We have to get them connected with our church and have them ready. God is doing a great thing in our midst. PHN. With Love and Prayer, Stewart.” Nick name “Grandpa” addressed by many Chinese students at the Indiana Valparaiso University, Dr. Wu fully deserve this intimate honor for his genuine caring for the Chinese students studying at this small town campus, 35 miles from the City of Chicago. He is their counselor, doctor, driver, teacher, and spiritual leader; opens his home to offer a taste of family while their own homes are thousands of miles away. He has devoted his full attention to the well being of these students like his own children at least for the last 15 years, with a strong conviction that he is reaching out to a group of Chinese intellectuals, that one day, some of them could become future leaders of China in various socio-political strata, who could literally change China’s destiny by transforming this country’s atheistic, materialistic worldview, toward a Christian, faith-based society. We have witnessed hundreds of overseas Chinese students have their lives completely turned around by the power of the gospel, many of whom have already become mighty servants of God, exerting their influence of breaking through the Chinese traditional intellectual and cultural mindset. Therefore, 4 students to be baptized is a big deal in this relatively small campus, with a high turn-over rate every few semesters. Saving lives is an urgent business. Dr. Wu has demonstrated this sense of urgency by working closely with his protégé Dr. Henry Pong, a dentist in Lake Station, by pouring their time and energy to serve the needs of these students, both physically and spiritually. Life impacts Life, we are called to be faithful and serve him by his appointment. Only those who are willing to give up their self-serving, material driven lifestyle would be able to fulfill his commission and create a tremendous impact upon friends, family, and society. Sitting next Dr. Wu to attend Grace Han’s Memorial Service, it made me remember this God’s beloved daughter of her great act of faith and passion to serving the Lord. I met Grace only once at the campus Bible studies while I was the leader. She was on the wheelchair and quietly participated. I didn’t even realize she was a stage 4 lung cancer patient. Her love for the students compelled her to travel more than half an hour driving distance and made herself available to counsel students with relational conflicts. These living testimonies spark up my desire to follow their footsteps. Again, their lives impact mine, and I intend to impact others. But most of all, I thank Him for appointing me to serve him. In Jesus holy name I pray, amen. (Brother Mike Chan sharing)

 

代禱事項:Prayer Request

 

為親友及在患病中的弟兄姐妹代禱,在此特别提名為李朝强牧師年幼孫女AVA患上罕見的血癌進行化療禱告, 求主保守AVA, 和她的父母一家。小AVA現需要進行骨髓移植, 四月六日教會將舉行捐献活動.AVA是亞裔, 盼望有更多的亞裔愿意登記捐献. 非芝加哥居民可上網索取更多有關資料: http://bethematch.org/Support-the-Cause/Donate-bone-marrow/Join-the-marrow-registry/ 

 

Pray for Rev.David Lee’s grand-daughter AVA who was diagnosed of Leukemia and is under chemotherapy. Pray for AVA’s father Pastor Michael Lee and his whole family.

 

There will be 4 bone marrow drives held in honor of Ava on Sunday, April 6th. Would you consider passing along this information to your friends to help us spread the word? Since race/ethnicity play an important role in finding a match, the more Asians we can get on the registry means the more chances of Ava or someone like her to find a match! Since Ava is half-Taiwanese/half-Korean, we are hoping for as many people to join the registry! Currently, out of 10.5 million people on the registry, Asians/SE Asians only make up 7%, with Chinese & Korean donors each making up about 1%.

If you are not local to Chicago, no problem! You can still join the registry by going online to request a swab kit to be mailed to you. Just make sure to complete the cheek swab and send it back:http://bethematch.org/Support-the-Cause/Donate-bone-marrow/Join-the-marrow-registry/ . Even if you decide not to (or cannot) join the registry, it would be great if you could spread the word to any of your friends.
