As the Battle for Souls Rages, Victory in Jesus!為靈魂奮戰,靠主得勝!

Recently Taiwan Harvest 119 experienced a casualty in the battle for the souls of men and women, boys and girls, along the west coast of Taiwan! 最近臺灣豐收119在為臺灣西海岸大大小小的靈魂奮戰中,經歷了一些屬靈攻擊!

Executive Committee member, head of Stone Band, and leader of the Taiwan 368 Movement–Pastor Steve Hsieh Hong Wen–ended up in the hospital for observation and testing after he lost strength in his legs.


That was to be the day he taught church coworkers at the second Training for Rural Evangelists!  Thankfully, the Lord blessed that day’s training as Pastor Caleb Yu filled in with How to Minister Healing Prayer and Prayer of Deliverance, and Ruth Harbour taught Bible Telling.  This trial, though, for Pastor Hsieh is another reminder that we need to be steadfast in prayer for one another as we enter into the battle!  Our confidence is in Him as we intercede for Pastor Hsieh!隔天,他已預備要針對教會牧者同工進行第二次鄉村佈道的培訓課程!感謝主,上帝依然保守了那一天的訓練會,讓于迦勒牧師的禱告與權能侍奉(醫治禱告)以及路得師母的教說聖經故事適時補上。對謝牧師這雖然是個試煉,但是也提醒了我們,當進入爭戰時,我們需要更堅定地為彼此代禱,當我們為謝牧師代禱時,我們的信心在基督裡。

Ruth experienced a healing that day, as did several present.  It was quite an eye-opener to coworkers who are used to praying often for others!  Pastor Yu’s presentation boosted everyone’s faith, and made us more aware that wherever the Gospel is being preached, the Holy Spirit is at work, and we need to be available to cooperate with the work He is doing!  With eyes for faith, we need to look for opportunities to serve Him and those He is bringing to faith in Christ.路得師母在當天經歷了奇妙的醫治,其他學員也是。 對那些經常為別人代禱的同工來說,這真是大開眼界!于牧師的課程內容提高了大家的信心,使我們更加意識到,福音在哪裡傳講,聖靈就在那裏動工。我們需要隨時與神同工!帶著信心的眼光,我們需要尋找機會來服事祂以及來到祂面前的人。

Along those lines, God is at work in the life of Shio Hua, a sweet Dalin neighbor who is praying to Jesus for a healing from what the doctors called terminal cancer.  Praise God, even though she is going through weekly chemotherapy, she comes home all smiles–tired, and yet full of hope!  Jesus is the source of that hope; she and her whole family have come out to the Good Neighbor Church.  May He finish the good work He has begun in her, for His Name’s sake!

INTRODUCING Taiwan Harvest 119 Founded by Mark and Ruth Harbour on March 1, 2016, this vision and mission is to take possession of the west coast (more resistant area) of Taiwan for the Lord Jesus Christ by planting life-changing family cell-groups in every neighborhood. Telling God's Story from Creation to Christ is the foundation for on-going discipleship, training disciples to train others who will train others. Our hope is in the Lord, and our calling is to 1) Pray for Spiritual Awakening on the island, 2) Train and Encourage West Coast Church Planters, and 3) Mobilise Resource Churches and/or individual missionaries (both in Taiwan and abroad) to connect with west coast church planting works and enable them to reach their neighborhoods for Christ.
