全球49处转播,十天十六万人次聚会,决志 一千八百八十人,数以百计青年人出到台前,下跪奉献给主,这边流泪,那边欢欣,存敬畏之心立愿作全职传道人。恳请为教会新一代的工人代祷!

最后一晚,主席向各堂服事劳苦的众圣徒,义工及各区工程人员致谢,并总结三位风格㢠异的讲员,所讲的信息均有两个共通点──一方面聚焦于十架的道理,另一方面一再提到复兴要有延续性,当关心教会年轻的接棒人。

为此培灵会可暂告终,但盼望大家延续代祷,更为自己教会的传道牧者和新一代天天恒切代求!明年讲员李思敬、区伯平,及斯里兰卡牧者Fernando,勿忘年内为他们代求!

(会后Carson 已回芝加哥事奉及写作,李健长老回台湾牧养他所爱的教会,吴献章牧师往欧洲各城,布道一个月,他会后身体不适,各地圣徒勿忘为此三剑侠祷告)

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Our 84th Annual Hong Kong Bible Conference has just ended after 10 days and 28 gatherings. This conference is like a festival in Old Testament era: a spiritual feast flowing with living water. God's grace is sufficient; His words were proclaimed and they warmed our hearts.

 Dr. D.A. Carson expounded on the Book of Nehemiah. His talk centered on knowing God and God's covenant through God's words, and how important that is for a believer's spiritual journey, for corporate repentance and revival, for revelation, strengthening, triumph and glory!

 Elder Li Chien showed through the Book of Philippians the Christ-centered life which leads to unchanging joy and peace. Peace and joy from Christ triumphs over difficult times and poverty; it prompts us to love each other, to become providers, intercessors and grace-givers.

 Pastor Timothy San-Jarn Wu demonstrated biblical life planning. When we are walking through a desert time, we shall keep a divine vision and put our sense of security in God; we shall look ahead to the end times, as revealed in the Book of Revelation, and set that as our eternal coordinate; we shall treat each night as a minor judgment day, so that God's light may flow into our hearts; we shall earnestly call attention to the need for intercessors and new leaders in the church.

 While numbers from Live Broadcasting Churches show that 160,000 have attended the 10 day conference, more than 1,800 declared their faith, and hundreds of young people came forward to kneel and give themselves to the Lord. Some of those young people cried, some rejoiced, and they all reverently willed to be full-time ministers. May the worldwide church pray for this new generation of workers!

 On the last night of the conference, the chairman gave thanks to hard-working volunteers and co-workers in each of the Live Broadcasting Churches. The chairman also summarized two common points from the talks given by three speakers with very different styles—1) we need to focus on the ways of cross; 2) we need to focus on the continuity of revival by caring for young leaders in the church.

 The Bible conference has ended for now. But we desire your daily, persistent intercession for your ministers/pastors as well as the new generation of believers!

 The speakers for next year are: Dr. Stephen Lee (李思敬),Pastor Au Pak Ping (区伯平), and Pastor Fernando from Sri Lanka. Please remember them in your prayers during the coming year!

 (After the conference, Dr. Carson went back to Chicago to serve and write. Elder Li is back in Taiwan to shepherd his beloved church. Pastor Wu went on to European cities for a month-long preaching trip. He was not well after the conference. Please remember to pray for all three warriors for Christ.)
