“你们所遇见的试探,无非是人所能受的。神是信实的,必不叫你们受试探过于所能受的。在受试探的时候,总要给你们开一条出路,叫你们能忍受得住。”(林前1013

 

几经周折,笔记本终于可以上网了。到温哥华后,有半个月没能上网,我迫不及待,一上网全忘了时间。每天要和家人煲“电话粥”呢。可是,我得钱包呢,因为找电话卡,才发现钱包不见了。我总是粗心大意,于是翻箱倒柜,完了,真的不见了。忽然暴风雨袭来,我瘫坐在地上,钱包:现金,信用卡,银行卡,电话卡。一切都不见了。我一下子从上网的兴奋中跌入深渊。妈妈在我离开西安时不住地提醒我一定要小心,千万别把信用卡丢了,挂失、补办不是一般的费劲,还要贴很多钱。我只觉得绝望。我开始认真的回忆,冷静。回忆我一天的行程。我一向很小心,手提包从未离开过我手。先去学校的银行取钱,坐公车到修电脑的地儿,对了,我在店里去了卫生间,那是唯一我离开手提包的时候。我努力谨慎回忆,猜测是在店里被别人拿走的。那是Lisa朋友开的店,我知道这样怀疑别人很不好,可这就是我能够回忆起来的最可疑的地方。我告诉妈妈这个坏消息,让她尽快挂失信用卡,否则被别人拿着狂刷,那可就真要绝望到死了。妈妈很冷静,她没有对我发火,她对我的教育一直让我很感激。

我什么心情都没有了,和Lisa通完电话,想好交涉的办法,我坐在地上,无助,无力,我心中有愧疚,因为一上网,我完全沉溺,忘记还有作业,忘记还有更重要的事,我向神祷告,这样的试验我无力承受,对于我来说,在这里一分一毫都是我父母的血汗,我甚至没有了力量求神显神迹让我找回钱包。

难过占据我,我想释放,走出房间和Shirley聊聊也许会好点。”I have lost my wallet.” ”Oh, I forgot to tell you there were two calls today from Scotiabank say someone lost wallet. ” 感谢主!颂赞主!歌颂奇妙上帝!他如此之快应允我的祷告,因为他的应许。他会给条出路。我想我一定是取钱的时候把钱包忘在银行了。

 

父母在中国也不知急成什么样子,我之后才知道他们是多么担心。

 

过了周末,我到银行取钱包,才得知是有人在车站捡到后送到银行的,可我根本无法想到我竟把钱包掉在公车站,so weird! 他们都说我很幸运。可我知道这是上帝的作为。

上帝的奇妙我如此经历,他让我单单看到他的能力,他的奇妙,他的作为,他的荣耀。

 

 

 

 

“No testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and he will the testing the will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.” (1 CORINTHIANS 10:13)

 

 

I could surf on line on the laptop finally. As I got to Vancouver, I haven’t gotten on line for half a month. On the run, I almost forgot the time to give the call to my parents. Wait, where is my wallet? I am always careless to put things randomly. I rummaged but fruitless effort. “I lost it!” One truth immerged into my head. I sat on the floor with grief. Storm hit me all of sudden; I fell down dreadfully. I could remember how many times my Mom reminded me not to lose the credit card for it is incredibly troubled to get it equalized. However, I had to face the reality. I called mom to report this bad, bad news. She even didn’t blame me. I admire her way of nurture me from the bottom my heart.

 

I recalled every detail that day I’ve been through. I sort of ensured it was stole in the store where I took my laptop to, for I left a while from my suitcase. I even had no strength to request the work of God. Praying God that I couldn’t endure this test, for each coin alone is my parents’ travail. To relief a while, I stepped out of my room to have a chat with Shirley. ”I have lost my wallet.” ”Oh, I forgot to tell you there were two calls today from Scotia bank say someone lost wallet. ” Thank the living God! Thank for hearing my prayer.

 

I got my wallet back. Surprisingly, it was not my left bank but picked at the bus loop. I was to die to consider I lost it at bus loop. I am lucky they said. However, I know for sure this is the work of God.

 

I experienced God’s wondrous so genuine that I saw his work, his marvelous, his supernatural power and his glory.

Too Busy Not to Pray— a book I’m reading

“Too Busy Not to Pray”

 

I am able. I am enough for you. Right now you doubt this, but trust me.

 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”(Phil 4:6-7) 

First Arrival

感谢主!有了住的地方算是安定下来。Roommate Karen人非常好,虽然她很快要回国了,跟我聊了很多,因为她初到这里时也遭遇过同胞的冷漠,所以非常理解我的难处。我刚刚到,刚刚住下,辛苦了几天,没有吃的,做饭的器具也全无,三天时间就瘦了2公斤。但很被祝福,Karen帮了我很多,带我到shopping center采购,告诉我很多生活上的经验,哪里买菜便宜,哪里有方便的交通。买到水果,买到蔬菜,买了两大袋cookie,可以维持好几天呢。Karen带我去downtown, grariville island, 到了那里,才真正觉得来到国外了,终于看到人了!这里是游客量很大的地方,很多卖当地纪念品的小店,原著民的工艺品很精美,不过,只因自己经济拮据,还是眼馋地看着Karen买了很多。

开学前的几天,都到SFU去踩点,也算不上吧,每次都迷路。其实学校还没陕师大大,是我实在没有方向感,而且学校的建筑非常诡异。因为坐落在山上,高高低低,上上下下,建筑物基本连在一起,好几次在里面完全找不到出口,我晕!当我终于艰难的找到回家的路,基本已经筋疲力尽。

 

 

Thank God! I finally settled down while having a residence. Karen, my temporary roommate, is a nice girl. She told me a lot to help me cope with the new environment for she had the similar hardness that was being treated apathetically. She could understand my difficulty.

I just lived in, having no food and going through tough. I almost lost 2 kg within 3 days. However, I was blessed a lot. Karen did me a big favor to leading me where the shopping center, telling me the experience of living life here. Then I got fruit, vegetables and two bags of cookies that can make me survive several days.

One day, Karen took me to the downtown and grariville island where I really sensed to be Vancouver. I finally saw many people in a big city. There were lots of visitors here.

The days before orientation, I visited SFU several times. I got lost every time. It’s smaller than Shaanxi Normal University. I sort of didn’t have sense of direction, as well as the building tricky. SFU is located on the Burnaby Mountain, therefore it is higher and lower. It took me ages to find the exit to escape the confusion.  

First Impression

 

 

While I was arrival in Vancouver, the first impression gave me a shock.


Dirty. The first place I have been was Chinatown where the street was as dirty as the domestic even worse than that. There were desperately numbers of freak, stragglers and junkies lousing around. It’s weird and scary. I can’t help but wonder if I really got to Vancouver which it is said one of the most condign cities to live in.

 

Few people. I have had a sense preparation to few people here. However, it was incredibly few, few people. Lisa and I went out to check out a new laptop for me. We took skytrain as well as walked a long way, but I met few people on the street. That gave me a illusion it was just early in the morning. I got my time 12 am.

 

Clear and clean. I brought two pairs of white shoes here. Honestly, I rarely wore any white dresses or shoes. I hate it becoming black instantly. Nevertheless, my two pairs kept their true color till now. Awesome!

 

Big village. I lived closed to SFU which is located on the Burnaby Mountain. In other word, I sort of lived on the mountain. There are more trees than humans, all the residences are house, the store on the sides of street make me feel like being a big village.

 

 

刚刚来到温哥华,很多第一印象。

首先是脏。一定会很奇怪,人都说温哥华美丽如画。不过看看我刚刚落脚的地儿,就知道the dark side of a marvelous cityChinatown,不是想像中的那样复古,那样中国式的繁华。而是:街道因为清洁工罢工而脏乱,人不多,看到的人都是稀奇古怪打扮、很恐怖的人。我在想,我真的来到美丽的温哥华了吗?

人少。来这儿之前知道这里人会很少,但当我真的走在街上,环顾四周,大半天可以不见一人踪影,甚至在平时大中午,公众交通车站,大街上,都难见到人类。这感觉还有些恐怖。

干净。带来两双白色球鞋,要知道我很少在国内穿白色服装、鞋子。然而,在这里,我的白球鞋至今仍然保持本色,我高兴,不用担心擦鞋的麻烦。

大农村。SFU在山上,我住的地方很近,基本也在山上,有棕榈树的小岛树很多,这里的房屋基本都是木制结构。人的居住基本都是house。街边的小店都是紧闭着门,看起来冷冷清清,没有高楼大厦,没有钢筋混凝的压迫,没有快节奏的生活,人们安逸,甚至这里的宠物、动物都很安逸。

Awesome!

上帝让我等待一个月后终于开始他在我身上的工作了。感谢神!

 

周五不上课,看了看学校anima celebration cosplay, cool! 随后我就去同学家学习做菜了。

Betty, Tiffany Bowen住在一栋house里。三个人那厨艺真没的说,就看每天中午那便当,就知道小日子过的有多滋润。我还在温饱线上挣扎,他们都已迈入富裕且绰绰有余的奢侈生活,荤腥从不间断。故此,我要学上一手,也好为我那贫瘠的生活添砖加瓦。

Shopping, cooking, and then chatting. “水”足饭饱后,我们,Betty, Bowen和我三人聊天,说到信仰,原来他们很感兴趣。我藉着圣灵的感动与壮胆,开始跟他们分享福音,分享我在上帝里的生命。这是我在离开西安之后第一次这样完整的分享福音,感谢主!我相信上帝在敲他们的心门。一讲起福音我就忘了时间,回到家已经将近晚上十一点。

老妈在网上一直等我视频。终于看到彼此了,妈妈看起来憔悴不少,可见到我还是高兴的不得了,我也开心的合不拢嘴。

 

我感谢上帝他愿使用我,他在我的生命当中,让我能够藉着他流露基督的馨香,来影响周围的朋友。我感谢圣灵,藉着他刚强壮胆,又一次开口分享我的生命,分享上帝对我生命的塑造。

 

周日礼拜,Bowen和我同去了圣道堂教会,感谢主!那天分享完福音,我就一直为BettyBowen祷告,感谢上帝他的带领。结束礼拜后,Bowen说他很享受,愿意继续的寻求。相信上帝自有他的时间。“饥渴幕义的人有福了,因为他必得饱足。”(56)

 

下午到Julia的教会去,几乎全是native speakers, 我兴奋不已。礼拜很简单,分享,唱诗,信息。没有条条框框的规矩仪式。赞美诗竟还是摇滚,cool! 非常释放,我们大声歌唱赞美称颂我们的主,我们张开双臂拥抱我们的主。I was born of God and am destined to be overcomer! Thank Jesus!

礼拜结束后,我看到有人彼此代祷,有人亲切问候,这是温暖的神的家,我开始爱上这里,其实刚一踏进教堂,就被吸引,清晰的感到圣灵的同在。Carol,一位中国迷,nice lady邀请我们一群人去吃Mongolia barbecue. I am surrounded by native speakers. Fantastic! 虽然英语还不是很好,但我从不会惧怕去讲。

回家的路上坐在Carol的车里,和她聊了很多,感谢主!上帝那奇妙的作为总是给我惊喜。原来Carol他们对中国,对1040窗口,对福音传回耶路撒冷都有异象,她对中国很都有负担,我激动地跟她讲了很多我们那里福音的状况,虽然用英语表达令我十分吃力,无法深入的涉及,可是,我太感谢上帝了。对啊,我是带着使命来的,上帝带我到这里,医治我,建立我,试炼我,我在西安的教会、弟兄姐妹仍然需要我。Carol同样很兴奋,她一直在为我们中国,特别是少数民族祷告。我们的梦想就是耶稣的愿望,万国万民都来敬拜主耶和华。

天父旨意如此神奇,我找寻属灵的家,找寻在上帝里有着同样使命的弟兄姐妹,找寻同样愿摆上自己为福音传遍地极的弟兄姐妹。焦急,安静,等待,一个月,他们奇迹般的出现。感谢神! 

 

 

God made me wait for one month till he did work on me. Thank God!

 

It was off class Friday. Attending the animation on campus, I then went to fellows’ residence to learn cooking. Bowen, Betty and Tiffany lived in one house. Their cooking is great as soon as noticing their lunch boxes. They always had meat or fish for meal, comparing with me, in the poor situation. Therefore I decided to learn tips to advance my daily life.

We guys did shopping, cooking and, then chatting. We talked about faith. It was wonderful they were very interested in faith and Jesus. I started to tell them about Jesus and my life that God changed a lot boldly receiving the Holy Spirit. This is the very first time to share the good news until I got here after I left Xi’an. Thank Jesus! I believe God is knocking their doors of heart. As I talked about Jesus, I would forget the time.

Mom was waiting for me on the internet. We finally met on line. She seemed a bit pale, but so glad to see me so directly. I was joyful, too.

 

I am grateful God is will to let me be his vessel, to share my life in Jesus, to live in Jesus life, to influence people around me in Jesus. I am grateful Holy Spirit giving me boldness to speak the good news, to share God’s shaping in my life.  

 

Church on Sunday, Bowen went with me to ECBC. Thank God! After I share the gospel, I was keeping pray for them. Thank God’ leading! Bowen enjoyed the service and was willing to seek continually. I believe God has his own time. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” (MATTHEW5:6)

I went to another church due to Julia recommendation. There were whole bunch of native speakers. I was excited. The service was brief, sharing, praising, worshiping and sharing the words of God. No other propriety and ritual. I do like the hymns here, inspiring me so much. We sang the songs to praise Jesus. We open our hands to embrace Jesus. I was born of God and am destined to be an overcomer! Thank Jesus!

I noticed many brothers and sisters caring, loving and praying for each other after the service. I was sure the Holy Spirit’s presence. Carole, a Chinese fan, a nice lady, invited us to have dinner together. I am surrounded by native speakers. Fantastic! Though I can speak limited English, I had no fear speaking.

On the way home, Carole and I talked a lot. Thank God! His wondrous always give me surprise.

Carole and her family have a mission in China, the window of 10-40, the Back Jerusalem movement and minorities in China. I talked much about our church and the wondrous of God in China, though it was hard to express my meanings in English. However, I was so thanksgiving! I was here all due to Jesus leading. God told me I need to be healed, rebuilt and trained. My church and brothers and sisters in Xi’an still need me. Carole was also excited to meet me. She and her family have been praying for China, especially for the minorities. We share a kindred spirit the will of Jesus, every nation praises and worships the Lord our God.

Heavenly Father, you are so wonderful that I can not imagine your work. I have been looking for a spiritual family as soon as I got here. With impatience, then quietness, then waiting for, I eventually found it by your glory. Thank God!
