Thank you
 
致親愛的教牧、領袖同工、眾弟兄弟姊妹們:

感謝神的恩典及帶領,於四月十九及二十日在墨爾本神學院舉行的宣教資源會議經已完滿結朿。

回顧由去年七月的異象分享會至今會議結朿,當中所經歷的盡是神的大能和恩典,好叫信神的同得益處。

在四月十九曰與會人數為188人,而二十曰則約有二百人。從收集到的回應表中,有十二位願意成為宣教士、有48.8% 的回應者願意參加宣教工作、另有30% 則希望對宣教有更多的認識。而絕大多數(93%) 是希望在兩年之後再舉行這會議。另外有多人希望該會議成為每年一度的盛事。

這次會議的舉行是憑信心的行動,在沒有任何經濟支持下便著手籌劃和舉行。耶和華以勒,神的供應之豐盛實在是叫人驚嘆!在此亦多謝弟兄姊妹的奉獻和幫忙,願神親自報答您們。在會議之後,扣除了一切開支,尚有$1580 盈餘, 現已將全數奉獻給墨爾本神學院。

參與籌備這次會議的成員都是一群來自不同的教會,當中有牧師、宣教士和平信徒;雖然是跨教會和文化的肢體合作事奉,在當中我們同心服侍神和墨爾本的眾教會。我們所祈昐的是教會與教會、和教會與宣教機構之間有更多合作的機會,多多善用神所賜的資源,彼此分享和分擔,為神一起打那美好的仗。誠願墨爾本的眾教會成為福音的出口,讓萬民也一同得福。

現在我們已完成檢討這次會議,並決定在明年5月2、3日舉辨2014的宣教資源會議!在此我們要感謝您們的支持和鼓勵,並希望您們參與和繼續支持這事工。

To my dear pastors, church leaders, co-workers, and fellow brother and sisters,

Thank God for His grace and guidance! The 2013 Mission Resources Conference held in Melbourne School of Theology on April 19 and 20 has been successfully concluded.

A review from last July's Vision Sharing Meeting to the conclusion of this Conference shows that the path has been full of God's power and grace, and adds spiritual strength to our brothers and sisters who have faith in God.

The number of participants on the April 19 was 188 people, while on the 20th we had around 200. From the written responses we collected, there are 12 participants who are willing to become missionaries. 48.8% of the respondents were willing to participate in missionary work, and another 30% would like to learn more about missionary. The vast majority (93%) was hoping to have a similar conference after 2 years, and many others like the conference to become an annual event.

The meeting has been organised by faith alone, in the absence of any financial support. The abundant supply by our God, Jehovah Jireh, is really wonderful! Thanks must also go to our brothers and sisters for their dedication and help, and trust that God will reward them personally. After the Conference and net of all expenses, we had a surplus of $1580, which we have offered in total to Melbourne School of Theology.

Involved in the preparation and planning of this Conference are a group of members from different churches, of which there are pastors, missionaries and laity. Although the serving group came from churches with different culture and background, we co-operated well in serving God and the Melbourne churches. We pray that there are more opportunities for cooperation between individual churches and also between a church and the religious organisations – in that resources given by God can be better utilised, better shared and shouldered, and win a battle to glory His name. We sincerely pray that the churches in Melbourne can all become exporter of God’s gospel so that the people globally are blessed.

Now that we have completed the event review meeting, we decided to hold a further Mission Resources Conference on the 2nd and 3rd of May 2014. Here we would like to thank you for your support and encouragement, and hope you will continue to participate in and support this ministry.

In our Lord,

Mission Resources Conference / Activate Mission Conference Team members
