香港聖言一月份代禱信

主內「聖言之友」:

      新一年剛來臨。我們感謝神過去一年豐富恩典的同時,也仰望主在新一年的恩典帶領,面對新的挑戰和學習。在新一年,神也帶領我進入新的事奉階段,二月份開始擔任「香港聖言」部分時間總幹事,並在自己母會作傳道。我過去一段時間和妻子嘉蕙在美國達拉斯神學院修讀神學碩士 (Th. M.) 課程,感謝主,已順利完成學業。 在美國學習和事奉期間,神讓我們學了很多,也繼續燃點我們的熱心,渴望透過神的話語造就教會。我尤其希望能在「香港聖言」事奉中,透過推動十步釋經法和釋經講道,幫助弟兄姊妹在主道中成長;不單是頭腦的知識,更是生命的改變,活出主道。 雖然我以往在「聖言」和教會內一直參與不同事奉,累積了一些經驗, 但由從前全職企業管理到現今全職在機構/教會事奉,當中有很多轉變,求神幫助我適應和學習。

主內「聖言之友」:

  馬丁路德於1517年10月31日在德國的威登堡教堂大門上,釘上了他的〈九十五條論綱〉,這事件普遍被認為是宗教改革運動之始。幾年後,馬丁路德被傳召參加沃木斯議會,當埃克指摘馬丁路德沒有權柄反駁傳統的正統性,馬丁路德說當教皇及議會的看法與《聖經》的看法相違背的時候,他只能接受《聖經》的權威。

Prayer Letter May 2016

Friends of SAGOS in Christ, Greetings!

On April 17 my wife and I attended the vision sharing and thanksgiving dinner celebrating the 2nd anniversary of the inauguration of Canada SAGOS.  Thank God, in the short span of 2 years, the Canada office has held many meetings on the “Ten-step Bible study Method” and “Expositional Preaching”, enabling many to grow in the knowledge of God’s word; in addition, many preaching co-workers and seminary students witnessed a lifting of their ability to preach in an expositional fashion.

The 2nd anniversary thanksgiving dinner was shared by 480 guests spreading among 48 tables, and among them were nearly 80 preaching co-workers and seminary students.  It has far exceeded our expectations!  On that evening, I shared a message on the topic “An Unique Kind of Satisfaction – Eating of Scrolls”, Executive Director Rev. Tsang also shared the vision, and the most memorable happening was that there were 6 co-workers receiving “Ten-step Bible Study Method Certified Teacher” certificate.  They are, respectively, Rev. Galahad Cheung, Rev. Michael Tsang, Rev. Joseph Wong, Dr. William Tsui, Rev. Stephen Lan and Brother C. T. Chan.  Their accomplishments added to the continuation of SAGOS ministry. 

On April 9 – 10, Rev. Lai lectured on “The Song of Songs” in the Bay Area (9 hours, total attendance 80 people).  On April 13 – 20, while attending the 2nd anniversary of Canada SAGOS, he also led “Ten-step certified teachers training” (total 5 persons), “Expositional Preaching” test preaching training (total 9 pastors), and led Bible Study Day Camp in Mississauga Logos Baptist Church (total 80 people).  April 22-24 he led a spiritual edification meeting in Wilmington Lord’s Grace Church in the East Coast.  The last week of April, he taught “expositional preaching” classes in a church in Milwaukee, total attendee 18 people, who are co-workers from the church and from 3 neighboring areas with pulpit responsibilities.

Rev. Robert Shen, Sister Eva Leung, and Rev. Michael Tsang led the May 1 – 13 “Holy land spiritual study tour” (attendees over 60 people).   May the Lord lead every body, keeping them safe and reap fruitful results.  On May 27-30 Rev. William Ho will lead a summer camp in Chicago Chinese Fellowship Church, the topic is “I love the church of my Lord”.  Mrs. Lai has led twice at SAGOS office “Ten-step study of the Book of Colossians” leaders training (April 2, 23), with about 15 students each time from 10 different churches, and there will be one more class in 5/14.  Furthermore, between April and May there will be a forum on “Ten-step Bible study of the Book of Galatians” at the Crosspoint Chinese Church, with average attendance 12 people in April, and 13 for the May class.

Co-worker at large, Rev. Seahawk Lun led an “Expositional Preaching” seminar in Hong Kong.  The responses from the attendees include: ‘excited’, ‘jump for joy’, ‘substantial’, ‘happy’, ‘thankfulness’, etc.   Elder Winston Shu, our volunteer director for the Southern Region, will lead a BS camp on the Book of Isaiah in Darmstadt, Germany, on May 25 – 29.  Before then, Elder and Mrs. Shu will visit many Bible study groups in Southern Germany.  Please pray for them.

The book “Thanksgiving and Passing of the Baton – the Blessed Journey that SAGOS travelled” is already published.  This book included articles and testimonies published by SAGOS over the last 13 years.  It also has many photos to enrich the content. 

Please continue to pray and give thanks for the following:

  1. Thank God for the completion of the lectures on “Song of Songs” held in the Bay Area.
  2. The 2nd anniversary of Canada SAGOS inauguration banquet held in Toronto went smooth.
  3. The surgery of the Canada SAGOS ministry director Mrs. Tsang went well. Pray for her follow-up treatment and recovery. 
  4. Pray for the “Holyland Study Tour” on 5/1 – 13, for health and protection of the lecturers, leaders and attendees along the way.
  5. The book “Thanksgiving and Passing of the Baton” is published.  You are welcomed to ask for a copy.

May your strength grow in the presence of the Lord! 

Your Co-worker,

Johann Lai

Prayer Letter September 2016

Dear Friends of SAGOS in Christ,

From the beginning, one of the main missions of SAGOS is to help believers to study and research the Bible in depth. In the last few years, we have held 3 days and 2 nights “Bible Study Camp” in Canada Toronto, Calgary, and US San Jose areas and received very positive responses from participants. The operation of the Bible Study camp is to have teachers leading students to employ the 10-step method to observe, interpret, and apply the messages of the scriptures in a discussion format, and attain learning through information exchange and interaction. Small group discussion is focused on the 1 – 4 steps: “facts”, “relationship“, “structure” and “questions”; and then the lecturer will express the next 4 steps 5 – 8 “answer”, “summary”, “theme”, and “principle” in a sermon format. Finally, students will discuss the steps 9 and 10 “detail” and “action” based on the principles derived. Towards the end of this year, we will be holding Bible study camps in 3 different locations:

  • In the US Bay Area: on November 11 – 13, in Mount Hermon Camp, topic: “The Book of Habakkuk 10-step study” (Cantonese) to be led by Rev. and Mrs. Lai
  • In Houston: on October 21 – 23, in Houston West side Chinese Church, topic: “The Book of Malachi 10-step Bible study” (Mandarin), to be led by Rev. Lai
  • In Canada Toronto: on November 18 – 20, in Salvation Army Campsite, topic: “The Book of Habakkuk 10-step study” Mandarin by Rev. and Mrs. Lai, Cantonese by Rev. Tseng and Rev. Lan.

Please consult pour web site www.sagos.org for more details.

In the beginning of August Rev. and Mrs. Lai went to Toronto to lead 10-step Bible study certified) teachers classes and expositional preaching classes. In mid- August they returned to Dallas Chinese church (DCBC) where they pastored for 13 years to lead spiritual retreat, and it was great fun to meet and share with old friends and co-pastors. In the last week of August, they teach a condensed course on 10-step Bible study in LA’s Church of Spiritual Food, with about 100 attendees. Rev and Mrs. Lai will lead training in Asia from early September to mid-October.

The sabbatical rest of Re. Shen is about to end. During his resting period, Rev. Shen obtained the needed rest on the one hand, and on the other achieves his personal writing goal. Rev. and Mrs. Shen will go to Asia for training and missions in mid-September, and will follow the lead of Elder Shu in his newly designed “10-step Bible Study 7 courses” to teach the second course lessons.

In August 15 Rev. Ho led “In-depth expositional Preaching Study” in the Bay Area, and about 30 people attended. From mid-September to mid-October, he will be in Hong Kong to lecture on 4 classes “From lamentation to joyful shout, what a wonderful life!” based on the Book of Ecclesiastes. He will spend 2 weeks from late September to early October in Asia training and teaching.

Thank God that the $ 60,000 matching fund drive has reached its goal, and we would like to thank all of you for your support. Further, the 3rd book in the series “Q&A”: “Q&A: Answering difficult life questions 3” was successfully published in mid-August.

Please continue to give thanks and pray for the following:

The many full-time and at large SAGOS co-workers who will be training in Asia September to October;

The successful attainment of $ 60,000 matching fund drive;

The publishing of new book “Q&A: Answering difficult life questions 3” in mid-August

The “The Book of Malachi 10-step Bible study” Bible study camp top be held in Houston in October 21 – 23.

May the blessing from the Lord overflows!

Your Co-worker,

Johann Lai
