到了時候                                 2018年6月

「我們行善,不可喪志;若不灰心,到了時候就要收成。」 加拉太書 6:9

應許之地國際事工」領受了 神的感動,於2016年初開始主日上午的崇拜聚會,然後在2017年一月份正式成立「應許之地基督教會」。之前在2015 年底,同工們為找場地而禱告的事項,信實的天父都一一地成就:租金便宜 (價格遠低於市價,以致教會在開創的階段沒有經濟壓力)、交通方便 (座落於華人聚集的 Cupertino 市內)、時間充裕 (租金按時段算而不是按小時數計算)、器材可以設置在場地內不需要每週搬動。許多熟悉北加州矽谷地區的人聽說,都覺得是不可思議的恩典

於是同工們存著感恩的心,按照 神的帶領,在2016年一月3日開始主日崇拜聚會。雖然這個場地符合創始階段的需要,但是我們知道隨著教會之增長,將需要另一個可以全時間使用的地方。這方面的考量,主也透過房東給我們方便,在一開始的六個月租約期滿後,就改成按月租用;一旦找到合適的地點,我們可以隨時搬出。於是全教會於2016年上半年開始為新場地禱告。這段期間,教會人數有持續的增長,但是較為緩慢,也因此原來的場地都還夠用;然而同時,固定聚會的弟兄姐妹們生命的改變與靈命的成長,卻是顯而易見的。 閱讀全文

In Due Season                                 June 2018

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9

With the Lord’s guidance, The Promised Land Ministries International (TPLMI) was led to start Sunday morning services at the beginning of 2016, which then birthed into The Promised Land Christian Church in January of 2017. The Lord was faithful to answer all their prayers regarding the location: low rent (that we could afford), good location (in Cupertino City with high Chinese population), ample time (rent by the morning instead of by hour), equipment could stay there all the time. People who are familiar with the area all thought this was an amazing deal.

With thankful hearts, we started the Sunday service on January 3, 2016. Although that location worked out well in the beginning, we were fully aware of the need for a new fulltime place as the church grew. So we began praying for a new place. By God’s grace, the landlord allowed us to continue renting the place monthly after the first 6-month lease was fulfilled. During that time, our church grew slowly but steadily in quantity. Because of this, the old place was able to accommodate. In the mean time, the transformation of our church members’ lives, due to spiritual maturity, was obvious and rapid, all to the glory of the Lord! Read entire article
