世語超言

只有上帝才能成就的事 Only God Can Do

世語超言

上個週末,張瑪莉小姐分別在 Pleasanton 和 Tracy Campus 分享個人見證和福音信息。感謝讚美主,在兩個聚會中都有多人表示決志信主,兩個地方的弟兄姊妹,特別是 Tracy 分堂的弟兄姊妹,他們都感到異常興奮,因他們開始每週崇拜還不到兩個月,天父上帝已藉此印證他們在那裡的工作。

事後我有機會和張瑪莉夫婦團契交通,我告訴她秦潤祥傳道的妻子Zan,就是幾年前她在 Pleasanton 講福音主日時決志信主的。隨後秦傳道信主,並蒙召全時間服事主,不久即在家中開始了MIT小組,想不到現在已成為我們第三個分堂。這已經是個不可思議的故事,但上帝竟然還有更大的計劃,是我造夢都沒有想過的!

由於現時的場地的限制,新朋友在崇拜後只能在聚會地方門外的停車場搭帳棚交誼,亦很難找到額外的時間和空間舉行培訓和其它活動。上帝竟然在市中心最繁盛的地方為我們預備了一個物業,是我們有能力去購買的。上帝並且在很短的時間內,讓我們有把握可以買到這個地方。這真的只有全知全能的上帝才能成就的事!

我們將於六月九日下午二時卅分舉行特別會員大會,和大家分享其過程和購買的細節,我鼓勵大家騰空那個時間出席參加,了解上帝在我們中間奇妙的作為。

如經上所記:上帝為愛他的人所預備的是眼睛未曾看見,耳朵未曾聽見,人心也未曾想到的。(歌林多前書 2:9 )

From Pastor Chiu

Ms. Mary Cheung spoke at our Pleasanton Campus and Tracy Campus last weekend.  Praise to the Lord that we had quite a few new believers from each of the campus. Our brothers and sisters in Tracy are especially excited because they had their grand opening in less than 2 months ago and Our Father in Heaven had already affirmed their work with the new believers.

I had a chance to talk to Ms. Cheung afterward. I told her that Zan, Pastor Anders’ wife, accepted Christ a few years ago when she came to speak at our Pleasanton Campus. Pastor Anders later accepted Christ and was called to full-time ministry. Shortly after that, he started MIT life group at his home. It’s hard to believe that it became our 3rd campus in a few years. Yet God has a bigger plan for us which I had never dreamed about.  

Due to the limitation of our current facility, we do not have extra time and space for additional activities and training. Also, we do not have space for fellowship after our Sunday service. We are using a canopy set up in the parking lot for people to hang around but it will become more difficult when the weather becomes hotter. Unexpectedly, God has prepared a property right in the heart of the city which we might be able to buy it. In a very short time, we found ourselves that the purchase may become a reality. This is something that only God can do!

We will call a special membership meeting on Sunday, June 9th at 2:30 pm. We will share with you the process and the details of making the purchase. May I encourage you to make an effort to attend the meeting so that you may understand God’s work of wonders in our midst.

But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9)
