十一月份會長家書及十二月代禱月曆

主內至親的禱告勇士們:

從去年七月開始,每一個月我會給各位帶來各地的事工報告。兩個月之前我將每個月的報告改為我給禱告勇士們的「家書」,深深地體會到國際關懷協會不只是一個宣教的團體,事實上,更是一個以天父上帝為中心的屬靈大家庭;雖然祂把我們放在世界不同的角落,透過每一個月的「家書」,把我們同心又情詞迫切的禱告帶到衪施恩寶座面前,讓我們一齊經歷祂信實豐盛的供應。

10月我們結束了在泰國舉行幾個年度重要的會議,會議之後最大的挑戰就是行動,求主憐憫我們不至於會而不議,議而不決,決而不行。會議之後我們繼續前往台北,在台期間,理事會主席周興國牧師安排了我們幾次與教會和機構領袖的訪談,深深的為周牧師一步一腳印很扎實的事奉感謝主,在許多不同的壓力和考驗之下,同工們忠心辛苦的地擺上,也給我帶來很大的安慰和鼓勵。

1116-21日,我應邀參加了在紐西蘭為黃亮宇長老按立為宣教牧職的感恩盛會。我從以賽亞書四十九章「僕人之歌」與亮宇牧師互勉「作外邦人之光」。從一百多位的與會者,我看到當地教會領袖對這次聚會的看重,深深體驗到亮宇長老夫婦多年來在紐西蘭和澳洲在宣教事工上深耕的果實。在亮宇牧師接受關懷協會新任會長挑戰之前夕被按立為宣教牧師,我誠摯的請求弟兄姊妹繼續為亮宇牧師夫婦儆醒守望代禱。

1125日我們在台北參加了校園福音團契60週年感恩特會想到59年前校園福音團契的創辦人查大衛(逸錕)牧師帶領我清楚蒙恩和蒙召,於1963年靜芝和我加入校園福音團契的大家庭,開始了我們夫婦在神國度裡的全職事奉在那一天的感恩聚會中,我再一次肯定我們的神是又真又活的神天父讓我深深的體驗什麼叫做「衪以恩典為年歲的冠冕」!  在聚會裡我們夫婦多次流下感恩的眼淚,也再一次在「僅此一生,很快就逝去」的歌聲裡更新我們對天父的委身。

日本關懷協會的黃安石長老伉儷參加了在泰國的國際董事會,他們回日本之後已經積極的為明年在柬埔寨的訪宣隊作安排。明年初我們也會在日本,配搭CMI的同工挑戰華人教會,並分享「福音進中華,福音出中華」的異象和使命。

十二月二日(星期六) 在南加州亞凱迪亞華人浸信會,有一次為美國關懷協會十六週年的感恩特會,同時也有新舊會長的交接,極盼望在這一次的聚會中見到您。

天父卑微的僕人

Lord has mercy on a missionary organization – Rev. Morley & Sophia Lee

God has indeed shown great mercy to Care Ministry International (CMI) over the past twelve years. As we look back, the ministry continues to expand under the guidance of God Himself. Gratefully, I am going to review our work as follow: Passing on the Mission Vision (MM: Mission Mobilization) the fire of missionary work ignited by the Holy Spirit was observed ubiquitously; Mission Prayer Fellowships (MPF) have been established in a lot of places; Missionary Prayer Convention (MPC) is currently being held annually throughout the United States and in Taipei; The Cambodian medical mission trip led by Rev. Jonathan Qiu since 2007 has been running continuously for eight years and we are planning to add another session; the seminary student cross-cultural missionary field internship and training courses (MFT) led by Rev. Chih-Chin Liu had completed its 11th year. Recently, Dr. & Mrs. Andrew Huang have completed two Kairos courses. They are planning to add a supplemental course “From Dedication to Mission Field” as well as a “Weekend Missionary Training Course” designed with churches in mind. Of course, CMI’s most important mission is the recruitment and equipping of missionaries, sending and caring for them. Every event requires manpower and financial support. Our Missionary Prayer Partner Team (MPPT) has been the driving force behind the scene through supplicating and fasting. Moreover, new CMI branches have been established in other countries, voluntarily passing the mission vision and pushing for actions… we are being touched and encouraged!

While we were in Japan in August, we stood in front of a golden rice field, because we saw and heard the “Call from Macedonia”. Please pray for more workers to do the harvesting in Japan.

God has added an even bigger and harder challenge on us three years ago. On one hand, we are working on the establishment of Rapha Institute in Cambodia to equip nursing professionals and training missionary nurses so that eventually the gospel does not just enter Cambodia, but also come out from Cambodia to other countries, making Cambodia a missionary country.  On the other hand, as co-workers look forward, contemplate and discuss together, we realize that we cannot ignore the needs of the hard to reach areas of the world – the Muslim and Japan. If God allows and open the door for CMI, we are willing to submit.

We were being sent as missionaries by CMI to Hong Kong in the year 2006 and served at the Chinese Coordination Centre of World Evangelism for five years.  We continue to serve at CMI upon return to Los Angeles in 2011, and willingly accepted the assignment from the Board of Directors as President of the organization.  Three years passed by quickly.  By God’s mercy, many tasks which we are not capable of doing have been accomplished.  His mercy was on us again by lifting the by-pass surgery in June.  However severe acid reflux has led to stomach ulcer.   Fatigue, in addition to aging make us realize that it is time to pass the baton.  We pray that God will raise up the successor who will work with one heart and in partnership with the co-workers to spread the gospel to the ends of the world till the Lord comes.

Your supplication is what we need.

After two years of networking upon their return to Kaohsiung, Pastor and Mrs. Chih-Chin Liu initiated a pastoral minister coworker prayer meeting at Kaohsiung Baptist Church on Sept 9.  Eight missionary organizations participated in the exhibition to introduce their ministries to the churches.  Our goal is to create a platform for more communications on missionary work amongst Kaohsiung’s missionary organizations and churches.  Sixty-five pastors, ministers and co-workers attended the meeting.
