卫神之友 | Friends of MTS

在卫神过去的60年历史中,一直都得到许多朋友的关心。因为有您,卫神至今已栽培了四百多位传道人、宣教士、音乐干事以及教会领袖。当卫神正延续、再生之时,我们一直都在思考、祷告以及策划,如何让更多的弟兄姐妹能够更直接的参与支持一些在经济以及祷告上有需要的学生以及讲师。

多年下来,我们得到许多堂会以及会友参与奉献,支持神学生的费用和卫神的经常费,我们为此感谢天父的供应。然而,还有一些学生来自伊班教会以及海外的,例如中国,也需要有堂会与会友委身参与资助他们。

的确,有一些堂会,如韩国富平卫理公会,以及一些会友,例如来自汶莱的一个家庭,分别支持来自中国的学生以及伊班学生。不过,在过去的几年内支持了四至五位来自中国的学生之后,富平卫理公会将不再资助新的学生。

卫神持续不断有更多来自中国的申请者以及伊班学生,无论是短宣课程或是神学课程,他们都需要经费上的资助。谁能够支持他们呢?今年(2015年)在卫神,我们破记录的有12位海外生,当中有5位是来自印尼以及7位来自中国。我们也有13位伊班学生(5位短宣生和8位神学生)。我们诚心邀请您祷告考虑资助他们。

除了有需要的学生,卫神也有讲师需要持续的提升自己以提供更好的训练于本院的学生。此类的提升与进修亦需要经费。

如果恩主感动您支持卫神有需要的学生和讲师,我们称您为“卫神之友”。恳请填写“卫神之友” 认献表,并呈交给本院。您可以认领一个或更多的学生,直到他们毕业。您也可以选择定期或非定期的奉献。

愿慈悲的主赐福给您所做的奉献,当记念主耶稣的话,说:“施比受更为有福”。(使二十35下)

因着您为神的国度所做的,愿慈悲的主大大地赐福给您!

MTS has been blessed by many friends like you over 60 years of her history. Because of you, MTS has trained over 400 pastors, missionaries, music directors and church leaders. As MTS is carrying on from strength to strength, we have been pondering, praying and planning to let more like you be directly involved in supporting some of our students and lecturers who need your financial and prayerful commitments.

Over the years, we thank the Lord for the financial supports of many churches and members who have committed to majority of our students' expenses and MTS general fund. However, there are some students from the Iban churches and foreign nations such as China who also need committed churches and members to support them.

It's true that some churches such as the Bupyeong Methodist Church in Korea and some members such as a family in Brunei have committed to support Mainland Chinese students and Iban students respectively. But Bupyeong MC is ceasing to support any more new students after supporting 4-5 students from China for the past few years.

MTS continues to have more applicants from China and also more Iban students, both in STMS and Theology program, who need financial supports. Who are going to support them? This year (2015) on MTS campus, we have a record-breaking 12 foreign students, among whom five are Indonesians and seven are Mainland Chinese. We also have thirteen Iban students (five STMS and eight Theology students). We are inviting you to prayerfully consider to support them.

Besides the needy students, we also have lecturers who need constant upgrading in order to provide better training for our students. Such upgrading also needs funding. Please also prayerfully consider to support.

If the Lord is leading you to support our needy students and lecturers, we will acknowledge you as "Friends of MTS". Please fill up a “Friends of MTS” Pledge form and submit to MTS. You may pledge to undertake one or more students until graduation. You may also choose to donate a sum of money on a regular or irregular basis.

May the good Lord bless you as you give, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35b)
