主內平安,相信大家已度過一個美好的夏天,願信實的神祝福每一位主的僕人,有上頭來的 智慧繼續在歐洲各堂會牧養群羊興旺福音 在2016年中歐鄰華宣委員會已有幾次的開會商討,我們定出2017年教牧研討會的主題,經過 思考後我們都覺得宣道會一直承繼著以牧養,教導,關心堂會事務,宣教,植堂的精神,所以, 我們把大會主題定為「宣道會的精神與傳承」.感謝神,我們特別邀請到香港建道神學院 院長梁家麟博士擔任大會主要講員, 因梁博士過去在教學、牧養有豐富的經驗，同時也 是一位資深宣道會的宣教歷史專家，相信必能帶給我們很大的鼓勵，也能給教牧們提 供未來歐洲應走的路向。時間：2017年10月9日（星期一）至12日（星期四）
Greetings in Christ!!
We had spent a beautiful summer and I believe that you, servants of the Lord, have experienced the blessings of our Faithful God, and received the wisdom from Above to continue pastoring the flocks and to flourish the Gospel in the various churches in Europe. The FACCES Committee has in the year 2016 met on several occasions to discuss, plan and organize for our 2017 Pastoral Forum. We strongly felt about the inherited spirit in our Alliances about pastoring, teaching, caring for church affairs, mission and church multiplication. Hence, we set the theme of our 2017 Pastoral Forum on "The Spirit and Traditions of the Alliance". We thank the Lord for confirming Rev/Dr Ka-lun Leung, President of Alliance Bible Seminary (ABS-HK) to be our main speaker. He has profound experience in teaching and pastoring, and is a highly qualified Mission historian in our Alliances. For these we anticipate great encouragement and a pointed direction for Europe and the pastors in the near future.Date: October 9 (Monday) to October 12 (Thursday), 2017.
We covet your prayers for the Committee in organizing this Forum with wisdom and faith. We ask for your participation, learning and fellowship together in this Forum, hence to care together for the Gospel future in Europe.
Rev. Daniel Nguyen
祝 聖誕喜樂 教會興旺 福音廣傳
Dear Pastors and Co-workers:
We thank God for His Grace!! My wife and I had been invited to be the Mission Conference Speaker in 2015 during November/02-16, one week each, respectively in their annual Mission Conference of French Cayenne Alliance Church and of Suriname Alliance Church. Other than sharing missional messages, encouraging the churches in spreading the Gospel, we enjoyed the opportunity to meet up with many co-workers in our Alliance family. So much of their services and enthusiasm we both find worthy in learning about.
Both of these two churches will determine a date in early November of 2016 to host the Caribbean Mission Conference, once in every five years, to offer four days (3-nights) boarding, hence for participants to bear only their flight costs. All European pastors are invited to attend.
As we are coming to close the year of 2015, you would be busy in preparing the celebration of the Coming of Christ, and perhaps a year-end Thanksgiving Service etc.
We certainly will count the Blessings in the providence of our Faithful Lord throughout the whole year, as I forget not sharing with you, for mutual encouragement, Psalm 100 as it says, "Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness, come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His Name."
Wishing you Joy in Christmas, a flourishing Church, and Gospel everywhere!!
Rev. Daniel Nguyen
