第一次的台東市宣道頗得我們去過屏東多年隊員(21)的盛讚:孩子們(110)乖巧又熱衷於聽道及學英文,而校長每天在門口歡迎,盼明年再來。我們還去探訪了老年長照中心,在隊員親切的獻詩及十位青少年的演出之後,臨時由我講信息,完後邀請坐在輪椅上的(31人)用雙手左右揮舞表明要信耶穌,一下就有8位歡欣的揮舞雙手!隊員再一一陪談後又有兩位信主。晚上,全隊去射馬幹教會禱告及敬拜。

接著,另一台宣隊再來到屏東從里港到東營十校的十營會(600人,80隊員),全隊住Doris筱雯所精心安排的摘星山莊,她是神所特別呼召的台宣本地同工。不同於往年,神差派了三位講英語信息的隊員在各校輪講,其中一位是來自日本的老美福音的魔術師(Magic ED),更是造成孩子的轟動及尖叫*。配合各隊的詩歌敬拜**,孩子們心中的福音

種子必然留傳得更深遠。正在預備週五的成果發表會時,超颱來襲,眾隊員在趕離山莊前,辛苦的努力於早一天發表,仍然得以完美的結束了營會。

離台前的週末,Magic ED和我到平鎮教會(~350人)繼續兒童傳道的魔術事工及三堂主日信息的事奉。最後一次信息完後的呼召便有約廾人信主***,感謝主呼召了近八成營會孩子們信主後,再次以祂大能的話語呼召了更多的人歸向祂。

台東 – 屏東 – 桃園的宣道結束後,佩帆繼續進行兩場營會:宜蘭(75人,20隊員)及台北(55人,6隊員)。都因各地隊員一心的擺上為主爭戰,齊力合一的完成了今年的台宣使命。耶穌心慰的像對過去的隊員一樣,也對我們今年的台宣隊員說了: 「又良善又忠心的僕人!」(太25:21, 23)。感謝讚美主!

*他有次要孩子給他球鞋裝飲料喝,看著他將水倒入鞋中,全體尖叫。他接著從鞋中變出一杯黑色的飲料,問誰要喝,每人都叱之以鼻。於是,他勇敢的舉起杯,捏著鼻子,在全場的尖叫聲中喝下。他接著說,我為你們喝這洗腳的髒水,你們的腳才乾淨;其實,你們的心也像腳一般的髒,今天耶穌來了就是為了要喝下你們心中的髒水,好洗清你們的心。

**這次在一新學校碰到一位當地非常強勢的女牧師,堅持自導自演,還要她兩位年少同工帶敬拜、教英文字,我們只有站邊看。結果是台上叫罵,台下吵鬧一片。當晚,我們討論了決定要如何帶全程。翠日重開營會,在夢周夫婦帶五位青年隊員同心協力之下,會場很快就充滿了祥和的愛及溫心的鼓勵,孩子們在不到一小時內便能高興的分班上台頌讚英文詩歌!享受主的愛。

***才呼召就有一位擧手,再呼召,有兩位;心中有感動便請他們到台前禱告,一下便出來了一群24位中, 要信主!

First time we did Taidong mission(~110 students, 21 teammates), having experienced Pindong mission for years, we were totally amazed by students’ attention and enthusiasm to learn about God and English. One afternoon we visited a nursing home to comfort 30 so old folks. After singspiration, I was invited to give a spontaneous message, afterwards, I called them to receive Jesus by waving both hands in their wheelchairs. Instantly, 8 joyfully received Jesus, two more after personal consultation. Later in the evening, we all went to pray for the church being started in the tribal village and worshiped God there.

Next, another Mission Taiwan team of 80 teammates conducted 10 camps in 10 schools from Ligang to Dongang with ~600 students. Thanks to Doris’ hard work , the whole team was able to stay in one nice conference center. We had a new strategy for this years’ mission, three English message speakers were going around to proclaim Gospel in each camp. And this was just arrangement only in the last few days by God’s will. Thanks be to God, it helps a lot. Especially, one speaker is a magician from Japan, using magic to explain the gospel*, raising sensational responses from all kids and their joyful screaming were heard all over the campuses. Right during the rehearsals of our camps’ final presentations, the super Typhoon came, we had to presented it earlier, just in time to wrap up the camp and departed safely.

Just before going home, Magic ED and me conducted the final weekend mission in a Taoyuan church of ~350 people. ED was proclaiming the truth with his magic to raise all kinds of sensations and again, with screaming laugh like in Pingdong. I delivered the Sunday message three times. Upon finishing the last one, I made a altar call, one raised hand, called again, two more, then being touched, I asked those who raised hands to come to front for the prayers by the whole church. To my surprise, many folks were walking to the front, ~20, praising God for the great power of His word to change people’s lives.

As Taidong, Pingdong and Taoyuan missions were completed, Peifan diligently led two more camps in Yilan( 75 students with 20 teammates) and Taipei(55 students with 6 teammates). It is all due to our teammates single minded to fight the spiritual warfare for Christ, they were working harmoniously in unity to once again fulfill God’s great commission in this year’s Taiwan mission. Jesus said to our MT 21016 teammates just as those Mission Taiwan teams before: “Well done, good and faithful servants!” (Mat 25:21, 23).

* In one act, he asked the children for a snicker to fill a drink, as he poured down the water into the shoe, kids were screaming. Then, he pulled out a cup of black water from the snicker and asked anyone to drink it, they all despised him. In unbearable disguise he raised the cup and drank it amid the screaming of all the children. He then said to them, I drank the cup of your dirty feet washing water to clean your feet. And so your heart was as dirty as your feet, likewise, Jesus drank the dirty heart washing water for you to clean your heart.

**In one new school camp we encountered a strong will woman pastor who insisted on leading the camp and asked her young co-workers to lead the worship and taught some English words. We had to stand by and watched in despair, the result was loud scolding from the altar and naughtily noisy reaction from the students. In the evening team meeting, we decided to take back the camp. On the next day we were back in full control, led by Morris, soon the camp was filled with love and encouragement, in lesser than one hour the kids were happily singing the hymns on the stage one class after another, enjoying the love of God.

台宣花絮..

在主裡歡迎你們加入今年台宣的英文福音營!

只是,我们能教的英文非常有限,加上大多数中年级孩子的英文還在幼兒階段,大家都免不了大材小用,在此,先為小朋友謝謝大家的擺上。所以,營會的設計不在於學單字和文法,希望的是用情境教學玩英文,使他們體會些英文可聽和可講的經歷。以此,盼能破除一些心裡上的障礙,以至有興趣學英文。

我們卻可以大大的分享神的愛,再小的孩子都能完全體会到我們信主人的不同。主的愛叫我們不難分享,第一只要恆久永耐(還好才5天),給每個孩子從我們身上發出的愛而叫他們要追求這愛的真神,這就是台宣的使命。

盼每個孩子的營会感想是:我喜歡英文了,也認識了耶穌,就像以前小孩寫的學校回應表。

神賜福!

MT 2016 news bits..

Welcome aboard MT 2016’s English Gospel Camp!

But we cannot really teach much English, since most of the kids, even at middle grades,  are still at the 1st grade level.  For a week of camp we will try to let the kids experience the live English with us through our interaction with them  in listening and speaking, instead of focusing on learning some vocabularies and grammars. Hopefully by doing so, they will somewhat overcome the barrier inside and start to learn English at ease.

However we surely can share God’s love easily no matter how small the kids are. The number one thing to share God’s love is the everlasting endurance (fortunately, it’s only 5 days!), from us those kids will feel the love and want to seek our God of the true love.

Prayerfully, every kid at the end will say that I like to learn English and know Jesus as well, just like those kids wrote down on their camp feedback forms before.

May God’ grace be with you always.
