緊急請求 Ugent Appeal (2018-03-16)

16 March 2018

親愛的朋友與支持者:

在過去一年,靈風基金走過更具挑戰的一年,但首先請與我們一起為著2017年內我們在全球各地的發展獻上感恩。在靈風夥伴國際的同行下,我們的事工已延展到108個國家,舉辦了284個牧者培訓研習班,裝備了9,900多位牧職人員和信徒領袖去教導上帝的話語,派發及供應超過6萬套以聖經為本的書籍給發展中國家的院校、牧者和神學生。我們也資助68位研究生進修神學博士課程。在香港這個家,靈風基金為90位操普通話的講道人提供培訓,並期待著歡喜迎接3位學者在他們博士學位畢業後回鄉作全時間的侍奉。

我們珍視你們的禱告和持續的支持。在美好的發展背後,我們所收得的捐助其實未能跟得上目前發展上的需要。在過去的一個財政年度,我們持續錄得$40萬的赤字。加上在去年8月,因應事工需要新聘了一位全時間的同工擔任拓展經理一職,深盼有忠心的捐助者能注入新增和實質的資金,好讓赤字不至擴大之餘,更能收窄讓更多教會的領袖牧者能受惠。

2018/9 事工預算那麼,需要有多大?單為2018年,我們需要你協助我們籌得$450萬,以致我們能提供資源在東亞國家地區作培訓教會領袖,去培育他們的會眾在靈性的成熟度,並在承擔使命與門徒訓練的準備程度上成長。

現在,距離今個財政年度的結束,還有點空間可作出免稅的捐助。我們懇邀你在禱告中考慮支我們的工作。為此,如果你願以信用卡或透過其他形式回應,本人謹附上捐獻表格下載連結,誠請填妥後掃描成電子檔案或傳真給我們整理跟進。你也可以透過我們網上的表格來捐獻。

Dear friends and supporters,

Langham Foundation has gone through a challenging year but please join us in giving thanks for developments across the continents during 2017.  Together with Langham Partnership International, we have expanded our ministry to 108 countries, held 284 pastor training seminars, equipped 9,900+ ministers and lay leaders to teach God’s Word, distributed and supplied over 60,000 Bible-centred books to Majority World colleges, pastors and students. We have also supported 68 students in theological doctoral programmes. Closer to home, Langham Foundation has trained 90 Mandarin-speaking preachers and looking forward to welcoming 3 scholars returning home to serve full-time after obtaining their doctorate degrees in Theology and biblical studies.

We value your prayers and continuing support.  On the negative side, our income has not kept pace with the growing needs .  A HK$400,000 deficit was sustained during the last fiscal year.  With a full-time staff joining as Manager – Development since August 2017, the deficit will widen unless fresh and tangible funding can be available from our faithful donors.

2018/9 Budget ForecastSo how much is needed? We need your help to raise 4.5 million for 2018 alone so that we can provide the resources to train church leaders in East Asian countries to grow their congregation to spiritual maturity and be ready for mission and discipleship.

There is still time to make an end of the financial year tax deductible donation.  Will you please give prayerful consideration to support our work?For this purpose, I attach a download link to the donation form if you prefer to give via credit card or other means.  Just fill in the form and scan it to us for processing. You may also donate through our online form.
