今年這個暑假可以到愛心育幼院參加兩個禮拜的短宣隊這真的是一個很特別的機會我自己是在高雄出生長大11歲全家移民到加拿大溫哥華當我們一到溫哥華就有人邀請我們到教會禮拜在過程中主不可思議的愛讓我家人每個人都接受主耶穌基督就是我們的救主當我在青少年時期信主後開始在教會服事我有機會參與兩次到台北天母聖道兒童之家的短宣隊我很珍惜那些時間跟我跟那些孩子的關係我經歷到主是有多愛祂的孩子學習凡事靠主來完成祂呼召我們去做的

201110月份我們教會的長老秉中宣佈說2012年我們有機會可以跟基督教芥菜種會合作,在暑假派出短宣隊到台灣,當時我的心被這個組織所做的事工感動。在短宣隊規劃過程中,我們看見神的手在這當中揀選團隊每一員;一開始我們並沒有最少的人數限制組隊,但上帝是信實的,並且是超過我們所想的,提供我們17位團員。主真的是信實的!現在我們的團員年齡從10歲到45歲,團員們各有長才。現在,我們很認真在準備各式各樣的活動,假日聖經學校課程、英文課、團體活動和手工藝等等的活動,這都是要讓我們在愛心育幼院時可帶給孩子豐富的時光。另外,我們現在也忙著跟我們的家人朋友說明此次短宣隊並為此籌款,但更重要的是可以大家可以為這次短宣隊禱告。

我們的團隊很期待要跟愛心育幼院的大家庭見面希望我們可以彼此分享生命當我接受耶穌基督時我的生命被改變在基督裡我被給予一個新的身份我希望可以利用這次和大家相處時間跟各位分享主的愛

This summer I have the privilege of joining the Taiwan Summer Mission Team to spend 2 weeks in Ai Hsin Children’s Home in Taiwan.  This is a very special opportunity for me personally as I was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and spent most of my childhood there until my family immigrated to Vancouver Canada when I was eleven.  My family was invited to attend church when we first came to Canada and through God’s amazing love we all made personal decision to accept Christ as our Lord and Savior. After I became a believer and started serving in church as a youth, I had the opportunity to participate in 2 summer mission trips to Tien Mu Children’s Home in Taipei.  I dearly treasure the time and relationship I had with all the children.  I experienced God’s love for His children and learned to rely on His power to accomplish what He has called us to do. 

Last October when Elder PinChung announced the possibility of sending a mission team to Taiwan this summer in partnership with Mustard Seed International, my heart was very moved by God’s work through this organization.  Throughout the planning process, we saw how God hand selected each individual to be part of this team.  Initially we did not have the minimum number of people needed to form this mission team but God is faithful and exceeded all our expectations by providing 17 members for this mission trip!!!   Indeed, God is faithful!  We now have a team with members of all ages (age ranging from 10-45+) with various talents and personalities.  We are working very hard to prepare for the vacation bible school, English lessons, games/crafts and other activities to ensure our time at Ai Hsin will be fruitful.  In addition, we are also busy fundraising for the trip and asking our family and friends to support us financially and most importantly through prayers. 

Our team is looking forward to meet all the children and staff at Ai Hsin and hope to share our lives with all of you.  My life changed when I accepted Christ and I was given a new identity in Christ– I hope to have the chance to share His love with all you during our time together.

Relishing in His grace,

Jennifer Chang
