Praise & Prayer

May 23, 2008

As some of you know, my parents have, for the last 9 years, taught English in China. As you can imagine, during the earthquake and all the hullabaloo surrounding it I’ve been quite anxious for them to return home. I’ve been concerned about their safety.

We received this from them this morning. It is from a Chinese brother in the earthquake area.

I don’t think I should worry any longer for them to be kept safe. Apparently, that’s what G-d does for His people.

Yeah. Oh me of little faith.

Dear bro and sis:

i guess all of you know the earthquake happened in China,here are some testimonies and pr…er request:

two testimony:

big one:

在网上一个弟兄的博客里的一些地震中的见证:愚拙 说:
她在德阳医院服事的时候,给我们带回来太多的见证,其中有一个见证是,德阳当地的教会不多,人数也不多,估计在1千多人,包括下面的乡镇,只要是信主的,只要是有耶稣印记的,哪怕是刚信主几天的,没有一个死亡的,冉琴说她完全领略到,什么叫做逾越节羔羊,只要有耶稣的血遮盖的,没有一个死亡的,那里当地的基督徒完全被震醒了,从软弱中起来,个个都充满平安喜乐,忙于服事和传福音!他们说,神没让他们死,是因为我们还有很多工作要做!

there is a city called Deyang,which is in the earthquake area, there are only few ch..es at there, only more than 1,000 bro and sis,including the suburb and villiage, all the believers,no matter they accepted J for a long time or just one day, for those who have the mark of Je are all safe,a sister said,she now understand completely what is “paschal lamb” , those who had been covered by the blood of Je were alive,all the Christians in that area has been awaken from their different weakeness, fullfilled with peace,joy and love, began to serve the L and spread the good news!as they said, G allowed them to alive,because there are lots of work G want them to do to glorify Him.

我们家庭教会一个阿姨的女儿正在读研,这次地震她正好带团里3个外国人(一共33)在四川12号准备去卧龙的时候,由于她的表坏了,所有人也都晚起了1小时左右.不然地震的时候她们正好在重灾区.神的保守,最后国家派的直升机把她们都接走了,本来直升机长说只接外国人,她是个翻译,正好和她一起的还有个英语翻译.最后说是和外宾一起的.才把她们接出来.她们2个也是最早出灾区的中国人.感谢神
我写的还不完全,感谢神的保守,她一点也没有受伤.
上周日她回洛阳就去教会作见证了,周一又回去了.

one of the aunt’s daughter in our house ch were studying for her master degree, by the time earthquake happened, she was leading a foreign team to Wolong(which is in Sichuan province),’by no reason’, her watch was not running, all of them got up about an hour late, otherwise, they would be in the center of the earthquake area.by G’s protection, helicopter that was sent by Chinese government sent found them and sent them home, they were only planning to take foreigners out of there, but she was a interpreter,so they took her as well, they were the first Chinese persons who got out of the earthquake are.

Pr..er request:

pr for the servants there and servants come from other province a good unity, so that they can have big wisdom from Him to implement the after quake reconstruction
pr for more servant to be commited to go to the disaster areas for long term serve, and no doubt there will be a new city that is full of Father’s people around and with delight in His eyes
pr for a long lasting donations and money supporting for the wonderful actions above,for the schools, orphanage, olders, homeless, and so on

All else i could say is Praise Him for who He is!
