In a wink, we are in the season of counting the grace of God – Thanksgiving Season! We are grateful, not because we earn big money, nor selling properties in good price, getting the first class in examination or competition, nor travelling abroad. We are grateful because we aware that it is the Lord’s grace and to share the goodness granted by the Lord with others, warming the hearts of people while glorifying and benefit mankind through the life of “It is more blessed to give than to receive”!
Raymond’s wife has a very good Chinese’s traditional virtue – sending gifts. The gifts including presents and love offering. Although we are only a small Gospel organization, and indeed need the support from brothers and sisters; However, we are not being passive in giving. We truly know that if today there is someone bless us with love because they see our needs in their prayer, thus fulfill our shortcoming in our Gospel journey. Hence, we also know that God is putting someone in our prayer so that we can be fulfilling the blessing of doing good, receiving the upgrade of life in the Lord.
Thank God through this practical channel, we receive the Lord’s promises. The Lord bless us abundantly through different levels of people, different channels and different places more than what we simply gave to others. This is one of the fruits of faith.
Singpetra Mission will face two or three months challenges yearly (expenditure more than income). The biggest challenge this year was to have income less than half the expenses in one month. After fulfilling co-workers and children’s need, my wife and I tighten our belts and live on (finding joy in sorrows, treating it as on diet :p). Back then, there were a man and a Gospel organization facing financial crisis. We understand their situation clearly. Therefore, Raymond and wife through prayer with faith, giving the remaining, the only living expenses and distributed, giving a helping hand in time of need. Out of the sudden, we experience the blessing of a simple man. Mother in law once experienced the joy of helping others, how about us by doing so in the name of the Lord? Isn’t this better? Hallelujah!
The sharing above is not self-glorifying but it is an experience and testimony of faith and love. God is so faithful, through this experience, God positions many angels to be around us and giving us help in time of need. This is so touching! Therefore, brothers and sisters, our angels are continuously giving us blessing in this thanksgiving season. Their purpose is clear, to prepare our coming year’s Gospel tour, leaving worries behind and leading people to Christ!
Many brothers and sisters starting to prepare what the Lord called for this season of thanksgiving, to be a channel of blessing, helping the unit or organization that is in need. There are some asked, “Besides money, do you accept assets like properties, cars and so on?! Suddenly see the light that blessing can be so extensive, haha! We really want to thank for their love. We do need to have a place to stay, having transportation to go to work or sharing Gospel and so on. There are some things that can’t be bought by money, for example: a good geographical area, good health, good environment, good conditions… this is a precious will. Thank God!
The blessing that we receive might be different from others, therefore giving out to others might have different ways. Some might receive from the Lord, bonus, good work results, profit through buying and selling and so on financial blessings. Some in the other hand is getting value in their properties or assets: cars, houses, shop lots, land, even machines for productions like camera, music instruments, computers and so on. If it is within your ability, be our angels, bless us so that we may move on for the Gospel. Through money offering, properties offering or any practical channels, let us fulfill the Gospel mission with peace of mind. Let us join in the Lord’s great commission in different positions – sharing out the Gospel.
