Full-Time Training in Ethiopia

The Lord’s move has been advancing and spreading all over the earth in the past several decades triumphantly. The churches in Ethiopia are living witnesses of this fact. The Lord raised up His move through the ministry publications in 2001 and by the Lord’s mercy we have been going on, under the Lord’s blessing, in this way closely following the ministry.

For the past 12 years, beginning in 2005, we were brought into a practical and living fellowship of the Body through the visits of the co-workers. Only eternity can tell what the Lord has done in Ethiopia through these visits. We are grateful to the Lord for His mercy that year after year we received grace upon grace and the church life is flourishing all over the country. Because of the blending and fellowship and perfecting we received in such several visits, the church life is built up in ways we could never have anticipated. Despite these facts, there has been a great lack of full-time serving ones in Ethiopia, and in Africa in general. Several young people have been trying to join the full-time training in Pretoria, South Africa. Obtaining visa to South Africa has been a major obstacle and the situation didn’t seem to be any different in the near future. Hence, we were desperate in seeking the Lord to find ways to produce some young full-timers. In fellowship with the co-workers, we felt good to try and have a pursuing program where by a few consecrated saints would come together and get into the ministry in a serious and dedicated way. After much fellowship and consideration, we all felt good to announce such a program to the churches in Ethiopia. We anticipated that may be 7-10 saints or a maximum of 15 saints would sign up. But more than 40 saints registered, with at least a Bachelor’s degree. We learned that the Lord desired to do much more than what we expected or prayed for. Several of them were ready to quit their jobs and join such a training. We accepted 30 for one-year.

There were various practical matters which needed to be worked out, such as finding a training facility, financial provision, and designing the curriculum and providing text books.

The Lord superabundantly supplied all the needs, we rented a training facility with adequate rooms (17 bedrooms with individual bathrooms, office space, classrooms, kitchen and dining area). Within a couple of months, the training center was furnished, classroom and kitchen were set up. The Lord provided two sisters serving full time in the kitchen. It was evident that the Lord was going ahead of us and we were just following Him and enjoying His doing. The pursuing started on August 15, 2016 with 30 trainees, 24 brothers and 6 sisters.

Trainees have personal study classes to pursue the life-study messages of the heart of the Bible and the conclusion messages, other classes for getting into God-ordained Way text books, and life class to study the matter of the experience of life. They have presentations everyday whereby they share what they gained from every study class. There are video classes of Brother Lee, and live video classes via Skype in which several coworkers share once a week. Trainees also enjoy the Wednesday night ministry meeting though the webcast. Twice a week, they go out for the gospel to the campuses and some to the community. What we have witnessed and experienced so far in this pursuing training is remarkable and far reaching. The perfecting the trainees received from the ministry is undeniable.

In the words of the some of the trainees this one year has been worth everything. One trainee testified, “I am enlightened to see that God is after a corporate vessel, the church, the Body of Christ regarding which I had no idea before I joined this training. I am also enabled to see the purity of the ministry of the age and that it can produce me a useful vessel to the Lord if I follow it closely.”

Another brother wrote, “…My love for the dear Lord Jesus and my appreciation of His person has increased, and now He is so precious, so sweet, exceedingly dear and altogether lovable and worthy of everything. My appreciation and enjoyment of the ministry was never as high as it is now. It is such a great privilege to be under this ministry. Through the services in the kitchen, through living together in a room with three brothers, the coordination needed in the gospel service, in group studies, and other assignments I was exposed to see my naturalness and self-love. This afforded me an opportunity to experience Christ to some extent by denying the self through the cross by the Spirit. I have learned many hymns. The training schedules and requirements are so high that it forced me to look to the Lord for more grace every day. The gospel trip was a wonderful experience to blend with the churches and with one another, and to learn to serve the Lord in coordination. I am so grateful to the Lord for making this training possible in this country and it is a great privilege for me to be here!! Praise the Lord!!!”

Having been deeply impressed and touched by the first year of the pursuing training, most of the trainees have indicated that they feel the need to continue for another year. Several other young saints in the churches in Ethiopia, and possibility a few from other countries in Africa also desire to join the full-time pursuing in Ethiopia. We have 20 to continue for a second year and 25 new trainees registered to join from Ethiopia alone.

Through much seeking before the Lord and in fellowship with the coworkers, we feel very good to continue such a pursuing training in Ethiopia to meet the growing need.

The Lord has bountifully supplied all the financial needs for the first year and we do believe that He will continue to prove to us His faithfulness in the coming years. Knowing that this is a Body matter, we feel that we need to present the need and the burden to carry out such a training to the whole Body.

The summary of the financial need for the next year is as follows: Facility Rent for One year (from July 2016—August 2017) = $ 64,872.00 Expenses related to Food & Support for 45 trainees per month = $ 6,000.00 The Total annual expense including rent and food and support = $ 136, 872.00

致主恢复亲爱的众圣徒:

主的行动在已过的数十年间已经得胜地往前并扩展到全地。衣索比亚的众召会就是这个事实活的见证人。主在2001年借着职事的书报,兴起祂的行动。并因主的怜悯、我们在祂祝福下,如此紧紧跟随这职事,继续往前。

 

在已过的12年,从2005年开始,借着同工们的来访,我们被带进与基督身体实际并活的交通里。唯有永世才能够述说主借着这些来访在衣索比亚所作的。我们为着主的怜悯感谢祂,使我们年复一年,恩上加恩,并使召会生活在全国各地日渐兴旺。因我们在这样几次的访问中所领受的相调和交通成全,使召会生活以无法预期的方式建造起来了。

 

除此事实外,在衣索比亚,并在非洲,普遍地对全时间服事者一直有极大的缺乏。几位年轻人曾尝试参加在南非普托利亚的全时间训练。但取得南非的签证是个主要的障碍,这情形在短期的未来似乎不会有所改变。因此,我们极其迫切地寻求主,能找到产生一些年轻全时间者的路。

 

与同工们交通时,我们觉得合适可以尝试有一个追求计划,使一些奉献的圣徒能来在一起,认真并专注地进入职事(的话)。经过许多的交通和考量,我们众人都觉得合适将这追求计划报告给衣索比亚的众召会。我们原先预期可能会有7到10位或最多15 位圣徒报名,但超过40位至少有学士学位以上的圣徒报名参加。我们借此得知,主渴望作的过于我们所盼望或祈求的。他们其中几位已经预备好辞去工作加入这样的训练。从中我们接受了30位参加一年训练。

 

有各项实际的事务需要解决,譬如寻得训练场地、财务供给、设计课程并提供教科书。

 

主极其充盈的供应一切的需要,我们租了一个有足够房间(17间有各自卫浴的寝室、办公室空间、教室、厨房和餐厅)的训练场地。几个月内,训练中心装潢完成,教室和厨房也都建立了。主也预备了两位姊妹全时间在厨房服事。很明确地,主是走在我们前面,我们仅仅是跟随祂并享受祂的作为。这个追求开始于2016年8月15日,共有30 位训练学员,24 位弟兄,6 位姊妹。(请下载录像:http://tinyurl.com/FTPEVideo)

 

学员们有个人研读课程,追求圣经心脏书生命读经和新约总论的信息;有其他课程进入神命定之路的课本,还有生命的课程,研读关于生命经历的事。他们每天都有展览,分享他们在每一个研读课程的所得。还有看李弟兄录影的课程,以及一周一次与有些同工们经由Skype现场直播的分享。学员们也借着网络转播,享受周三晚上的职事聚会。一周两次,他们出外到校园,或有些到社区传福音。我们目前在追求训练里,所见证和经历的是非常卓越和深远的。学员们从职事所领受的成全是不可否认的。

 

这一年有些学员们所见证的话,就说出这一切都是值得的。

有一学员见证:

「我得着光照看见,神要得着一个团体的器皿,就是召会,基督的身体。这是我在参加这个训练前完全不知道的。我还能够看见今时代的职事的纯正,并且如果我紧紧跟随,这能使我成为主有用的器皿。」

另一弟兄写道:

「我对亲爱主耶稣的爱,并对祂人位的欣赏增加了。祂如今是如此宝贝、甜美、特别的亲爱、全然可爱、并配得万有。我对这职事的欣赏和享受,从来没有像现在这么的高。这是何等的权利,能在这职事之下。

 

借着在厨房服事、与三位弟兄同寝室生活、在福音服事里所需要的配搭和小组的研读并其他的作业,使我被暴露,看见我的天然和自爱。这提供我一个机会经历基督到某个程度,使我借着十字架、因着那灵而否认已。我学会许多诗歌。训练的时间表和要求是如此的高,迫使我每天向主寻求更多的恩典。福音开展队是一个美好的经验,与众召会和彼此相调,并学习在配搭里服事主。

 

我非常感谢主,这国家能有训练;何等的权利!我能在此,赞美主!」

 

因着被第一年的追求训练深深地摸着和感动,大部分的学员已经表示,他们觉得有需要继续另外一年的训练。有些其他衣索比亚众召会的年轻圣徒和非洲其他国家的一些圣徒,也渴慕参加在衣索比亚全时间的追求训练。我们有20位会继续第二年,仅从衣索比亚本地就有25位新学员报名参加。

 

经过在主前诸多的寻求并与同工们交通,我们觉得合适,在衣索比亚继续这样的追求训练,以应付增加的需要。

 

主丰富地供应了我们第一年所有财务的需要,我们也实在相信主会在要来的年间,继续向我们证实祂的信实。

 

因着认识这是身体的事,我们感觉需要将继续举办这训练的需要和负担, 带到整个身体里。

 

为着下一年财务需要的总计如下:

场地一年的租金(2017年7月到2018年8月)=美金$64,872

45位训练学员每月相关食物供给的费用=美金$6,000

总计一年开销包括租金食物供给=美金$136,872
