事 奉 的 喜 樂

感謝主,讓啡組眾弟兄姊妹能夠有合一的心,在神家裡,一同學習事奉。在去年初,教會推行本地「和平計劃」事工,鼓勵各小組參加本地不同的機構舉辦的社會服務,幫助一些弱勢群體。我們啡組選擇了「盲人及弱視事工」。由去年一月份開始,我組在每個月的第四個星期六,一同參予這項事工。

這「盲人及弱視事工」是由本市一個基督教團體“福愛傳道社”主辦。負責人是一位失明的傳道人,Pastor Danny Leung。該事工在多倫多已成立了4年多了。主要服務對象是本地的失明及弱視華人(講粵語和國語都有) 。 Danny 這位年輕的傳道人,他身同感受,知道失明及弱視者的心態,很多病患者都存有自卑及失落感,不想和外界接觸,多喜歡留在家裡。病患者大多數都需要家人照顧,使家人都背負沉重壓力。 Danny在自已居住的大廈裡租用了聚會的 Party Room,舉辦每月的聚會。現時每月參加聚會的 VIP (Vision Impaired Person) 約有25 – 30 位,聚會時間由上午 11時至下午 2時30分。聚會內容主要有 VIP 個人分享,才藝表演,專題講座及午餐供應等。 Danny 很多時都邀請不同的機構主講有關各種社會服務,福利,健康及生活常識等話題。他亦邀請不同教會牧者來分享聖經的真理。參加聚會的 VIP,大多數都未信主的。雖然他們都是失明或弱視,生活在漆黑中,但透過這個聚會,讓他們都能夠聽到福音,感受到耶穌基督的愛和見到「真光」。

參加這事奉的義工,全部都是天父的兒女,來自不同的教會。我們的工作主要是負責接送 VIP,預備會場的檯椅,準備茶水,個人陪談,派發午餐及清潔地方等。大部份義工都要負責接送指定的 VIP,這是一個很重要的工作。在接送期間,義工和 VIP 都建立了友誼,這也是義工們傳講福音的最佳時機。 VIP 們亦很開心,和我們講心裡話,就好像一家人一樣。 VIP 們亦感受到神的大愛,有部份 VIP 已接受邀請,在星期天去教會參加聚會,研聽天國之道。最近還有一位 VIP 決志信主, Hallelujah 感謝主。

啡組弟兄姊妹們透過參加這個事奉,互相學習,非常喜樂,更能體會到神的大能和耶穌基督的恩慈。愿主保守關顧這些失明及弱視群體,賜他們有平安,有喜樂。求聖靈常與各義工同在,提醒及帶領行走神的道,把福音廣傳。愿主的聖名常被高舉,一切榮耀頌讚歸于天上的父神。

Peter Leung
