What a fruitful and exciting 2014 it has been! Thanks to you, PLUC is where she is right now, powered by all your faithful prayers and financial support. Indeed, we wish we could update you on PLUC news every month but our hands are already so full. One of our main ministry focus areas is the daily pastoral care and counseling we do from Tuesday till Friday. On weekends, we teach “Crossroad” to some of our strugglers, a course which focuses on Human Development. Over a few weeks also, I was involved in teaching at a seminary. All this does not include the many preaching engagements and talks given at various churches in different states across the nation.

In the first 6 months of 2014, both Sylvia and I travelled to 6 nations, mostly to teach and give talks on topics related to Gender Identity Issues. Your financial support made it possible for PLUC to advance His kingdom in this way, especially in developing nations. Seeing the eyes of the people we minister to light up with hope has brought great joy to us. What a miracle it is to witness these broken ones finding hope in Jesus!

I would also like to thank the Sarawak Chinese Methodist Conference for producing the e-movie “Lady” which was based on my personal testimony and brilliantly brought to life by local Malaysian Chinese movie stars. The e-movie is just 39 minutes and it can be a wonderful tool for evangelism. It was screened in a few local cinemas in Sarawak and what amazed us was the smooth and speedy approval given by FINAS (local film licensing board). All glory to God, even as we appreciate their generosity and investment into God’s kingdom! Please call PLUC office if you want to purchase a copy.

Moving forward, I am excited for what God has in store for 2015, especially as we anticipate our upcoming conference on 13th & 14th March, co-organized with Glad Tidings Petaling Jaya. The conference, entitled “Out of Darkness into Light: Dignity Redeemed” gives emphasis to the ‘Texts & Hermeneutic of Homosexuality’ as well as how the Church must respond to homosexuality. It is crucial in these critical times that ordinary churches are equipped with a biblical interpretation of this whole issue, more so as the current Gen-Y demands a biblical response for why homosexuality is not God’s will. This bilingual conference is targeted at all who are concerned to know and communicate His truth on the subject.

To speak at the conference, we have invited Professor Christopher Yuan and his parents from Chicago, as well as Pastor Jenny Li from Rainbow-7, Taiwan to share the platform with them. I believe the Yuan family’s powerful testimony will enable families who have loved ones struggling with homosexuality to see hope in the midst of hopelessness. Participants will also greatly benefit from Pastor Jenny Li’s insights on how to journey with homosexuals from her experience at Rainbow-7, one of the longest serving ministries in Asia. Please do uphold this conference in prayer.

On that note, all of us at PLUC wish you a blessed Christmas and an exciting 2015 ahead! Peace on the earth and goodwill to all mankind!

2014年真是丰盛又令人兴奋的一年!感谢您衷心的代祷以及财务上的支持,PLUC才能走到目前的阶段。我们非常希望能在每个月为您提供PLUC的最新动态,但碍于繁忙的事工,我们有心无力。PLUC其中一项主要的事工,就是周二至周五的教牧辅导;而周末则进行一个与人类发展相关的《十字路口》课程来牧养一些在我们当中的挣扎者。有好几个星期,我也需要到神学院教课,这一切还不包括我在各国各地的证道和培训。

2014上半年,Sylvia和我共去了6个国家分享有关性别身份的课题。您在金钱上的支持,使PLUC有机会在这方面扩展神的事工,特别是海外的需要。每次看到求助者的眼神里充满着盼望,都为我们带来无比的喜乐。能够见证破碎的灵魂在耶稣基督里找到盼望,真是个神迹!

我也特别感谢卫理公会砂拉越华人年议会以我个人的见证来制作《女性》这部电影,并由本地优秀的演员领衔主演。这部电影片长39分钟,也作为很棒的布道教材。电影《女性》有机会在砂拉越的一些电影院上映,并且顺利和迅速地通过马来西亚国家电影发展局的批准,真是让我们感到惊讶!我们非常感激卫理公会砂拉越华人年议会的慷慨大方以及对神国度的投资,一切荣耀归于主!若您有兴趣购买,请来电咨询。

我非常期待神在2015年将要成就的事,特别是2015年3月13日至14日由PLUC主办、八打灵喜信堂协办的研习会。“出黑暗入光明:尊严得赎”研习会将注重在‘从圣经的角度看同性恋的文本与释经学’,也探讨教会应当如何回应同性恋这个课题。在这关键的时刻,教会在同性恋这个课题上,必须具备符合真理的解释,而Y世代的人更须懂得如何依据圣经来回应同性恋为何不是神的旨意。凡
欲探讨圣经教义对同性恋课题的立场,以及如何以真理来回应同性恋课题的朋友,请报名参加这个以双语为媒介的研习会。

这次的研习会,我们邀请了来自芝加哥的袁幼轩博士一家以及台湾“走出埃及”机构的厉真妮传道来与大家分享。我深信透过袁幼轩博士的见证,将帮助许多陪伴同性恋挣扎者的家人在绝望中重燃希望。台湾“走出埃及”是亚洲最长久的事工之一,参加者也可透过厉真妮传道在陪伴同性恋者的经验中受益良多。请大家为这个研习会代祷!

最后,PLUC全体同工祝您有个蒙福的圣诞和精彩的2015年!在地上,平安临到祂所喜悦的人!
