Being There for Our Youth at the Good Neighbor 在好厝邊關懷青少年

How will the world know God has sent the Son, except by the way we love one another!  God has given us at the Good Neighbor Caring Center in Dalin, Chiayi County, Taiwan many ways to reach out to our young people with the love of Christ–

這個世界怎麼會知道上帝已經差來他的愛子?唯一的方式就是透過我們的彼此相愛。在嘉義縣大林的好厝邊關懷中心,上帝給了我們許多方法,帶著愛,去接觸年輕人。

  1. Saturday afternoons we have music classes, with teachers teaching piano, ocarina, ukelele  and guitar.  We hope to get a cajon in lieu of a drum set for now.  These classes have just been running two weeks, with about 7 students coming out.  Praise God for 90 year old Mr. Lim volunteering his time to teach piano, and church member Sandy Chen volunteering her time to teach ocarina and ukelele–AND taking responsibility to contact the students and organize our class lists!  We have a short 20 minute “Getting to Know Jesus” time in the middle of two music sessions between 2:30-4:30.  We are hoping to give our students the chance to serve in church once a month after they have become more proficient with their instruments.週六下午有音樂課,有老師教鋼琴、陶笛、烏克麗麗和吉他。未來還期待有一組爵士鼓。這些課程還開始不久,已經有超過7個學生。感謝主,90歲的林老師奉獻他的時間,免費教鋼琴。Sandy老師則是免費教陶笛和烏克麗麗,還負責連絡學生..等行政事務。在2:30-4:30的兩小時上課中間休息時間,我們安排20分鐘的”認識耶穌”。期待未來每月一次,他們有機會在主日的崇拜中用所學的樂器來服事。
  2. WHIZ Kids program on Sunday mornings gives our Youth the chance to serve as Little Teachers for the Elementary School children.  It’s a great time for them to hide God’s Word in their hearts, too!青少年有機會在主日上午擔任兒童優等生的小老師。孩子們可以將上帝的話藏在心裡。
  3. Sunday Evening English Conversation class has been a great stage for talking about spiritual things as we go through a book called, “Uplifting Stories.”主日晚間的英文會話班是個很棒的平台,可以藉著書本-“提升故事”討論有關靈性的事。謝謝南京東路禮拜堂18位以大專生為主的短宣隊老師,協助我們完成在大林國中一週的國中生領袖營。有18位學生參加,週四的披薩派對更有30位青少年參加,都是因為來自台北的這些老師們用心的準備而大受祝福。我們更因為Emily的決志,和眾天使們一起歡呼喜樂。
  4. After-School English class meets twice a week for our Junior High students; as Mark and Ruth will be going on home service for six months beginning October 23rd, we are wondering if God has a college student who is fluent in English who would like to carry on this service to a group of about 5 students–all 8th graders this year at Dalin Junior High!每週兩次的中學生課後英文班,除了馬可和路得外,期待有大學生具備英文程度的可以繼續這個教導的任務,目前五位學生都是大林國中二年級生。
  5. We just finished a week of Leadership Youth Camp at Dalin Junior High, thanks to the help of 18 teachers–mostly university students–from Nan Jing East Road Church in Taipei!  We had about 18 students come out; Wednesday’s pizza party drew out 30 youth, who were blessed by the evangelistic skit and message prepared and executed so well by their teachers from Taipei! We are rejoicing with the angels in Heaven, as Emily trusted Jesus!謝謝南京東路禮拜堂18位以大專生為主的短宣隊老師,協助我們完成在大林國中一週的國中生領袖營。有18位學生參加,週四的披薩派對更有30位青少年參加,都是因為來自台北的這些老師們用心的準備而大受祝福。我們更因為Emily的決志,和眾天使們一起歡呼喜樂。

TODAY we got to treat our After-School Students to a trip to Sun Moon Lake!  Why not treat them like FAMILY, for Jesus! 在耶穌裡像一家人一樣!招待課輔班學生去日月潭。
