以馬內利 主僕 黃嘉生牧師 與您談心 2018年9月
Dear Partners in Gospel Broadcasting,
May the peace of our Lord be with you!
Praise the Lord, this special edition celebrating the 30th anniversary of FEBC-Chinese Ministries can finally reach you. It has been a little delayed, but we are grateful to have congratulatory messages from our CEO and from China Ministry Office of FEBC International, as well as articles by former directors and coworkers.
After much consideration, we have decided to have a “Lunch Box Open House” to celebrate our 30th anniversary, instead of a traditional fundraising banquet. The details about the Open House are included in this issue. We hope you can attend and learn more about FEBC. As I mentioned in the last issue, the offerings during the first 9 months of 2018 only met about half of our expenditures. We are faithful that God will move our partners to give us additional support in the latter part of this year so that the Good News of Christ can be spread wide and deep into all corners of the world. In the meantime, we will do our best to use our resources most efficiently.
Our internal ministries have had a busy August. The program department recorded a 24-lecture series on the Five Megillot of the Old Testament and a series on Chinese sacred music history. Pastor Stephen Hsieh also made a special edition of “The Good Shepherd.” In mid-August our media department cohosted the “Internet Mission Forum 2018,” where I was designated to share on the theme “God loves the ROBOT?!”（It is no heresy, as the Chinese character for robot is homophonic to “opportunity, vessel, and mankind.”） About 120 people from many churches participated and engaged in lively discussions.
If your church needs to fill the pulpit, please arrange with our Administration Department. I hope before long I may have the opportunity to minister at your church, share the Gospel, equip believers and lead others to Christ, and greet you in person.
Your servant in Christ,
Pastor James Hwang
