宣教之旅見證(新加坡短宣隊員謝麗珠姊妹)


今天我要分享神如何對我說話、讓我有所突破、並得以參加這次到台灣的短宣隊。Today I would like to share how God spoke to me and my breakthrough about coming for his mission trip.
01

我很久以前就想參加短宣隊了,但一直未能如願。有時是請假未蒙獲准、有時是為了因應最近的金融危機而必須加班、有時則碰到家中有事。此外,過去三年間,我常為正處於青少年叛逆期的大兒子而頭痛不已。
I have wanted to go for a mission trip for a very long time. Things doesn’t seems to go my way. Either my leave was not approved, or the recent financial crises that causes me to work to the late nites or family committment.

我有兩個兒子:老大現年16歲,老二13歲。過去這三年裡,我的日子頗不好過,我甚至得了憂鬱症,多次尋求諮商協助。最後我告訴自己:「不能再這樣下去了!沉溺於憂鬱之中,並無法改變我家中或公司的狀況,我需要有所突破。世上有很多人需要神,我要看神如何透過我成就大能的事,我要憑著信心走出去。」我曾經夢到和Dowdy牧師交談,在夢中她要我邁出信心的腳步-參與服事,例如在小組中領唱,或參加短宣隊。我會害怕嗎?當然。但我相信神會伴我同行,活出祂要賜給我的豐盛生命。這次我向公司請假,順利的獲准了,這真是一大突破。感謝神!
Also, for the last 3 years, I’ve been struggling with a rebellious son who turn into his teen…create a big havoc in the family. I’ve have 2 sons….one is 16years old and another 13 years old. I didn’t think life was fanstatic then. I went through depression, many sessions of counselling till I tell myself that this has got to end. By drowning myself further will not change the situation in my home front or my office. I wanted a breakthrough. There are many people out there who needs God. I wanted to see what God can do through me, what He wants from me. It takes faith to move out. I remembered a dream that I had with our then Senior Pastor Dowdy. In our conversation, she told me to take a step of faith…do something…like song leading in a cell, or go for a mission trip. Am I afraid….yes. But I have the confidence that He will walk me through…to live the purposeful life to the fullest that He has given to me. My first breakthrough came when my leave was approved without any questioning. Thank God for that.

我從神領受了極大的恩典,我向我的大兒子傳講時,他未必聽的進去,但我相信另有許多人需要聽聞福音。
My son may not listen to me about God goodness. And I have received much from God and I believe there are people out there who needs to hear about HIM.

短宣隊出發的前幾天,一向和我很親的二兒子對我說:「媽媽請不要去。」我回答他說:「我必須去,如果我這次不去,將來就永遠不會去了。」感謝神,在我出發的那一天,他把一封信塞進我的行李箱。上面寫道:「媽媽,基督把握時機,使一位瞎子重見光明,讓人看出祂的大能和慈愛。媽媽,今天就是你的時機。去吧!充滿信心,為神做見證,完成神在你身上的心意。」
A few days before coming for this trip, my second son who is very close to me tell me “Mummy, please don’t go”. I told him “I have to go, if I don’t, I will never go”. Thank God, the day I left for this trip, he left a letter in my luggage box. He wrote “Mummy, know that Jesus healed the blind man in his time for a purpose, to show HIS goodness for everyone then. Mummy, today is the time for you,…GO…Have Faith….Be a Living Testimony and fulfill the destiny that God has for you”.

我真高興我的二兒子讚成並且祝福我的宣教之旅。今天我要對自己說:「願本著今日就是我在世上最後一天的心態,活出一個快樂而且有意義的日子」。
願榮耀歸給上帝!
I am glad and happy that my son releases me for His ministry…today I tell myself that I want to live a joyful and purposeful life as if today will be my last day on earth.
Glory be to God.
