    國際五旬節聖潔會第29屆會員大會於本年7月於美國舉行,
    最矚目的盛事當然是主理主教及各個部長的大選。一如所料,德亞瑟博士、迦德立牧師順利連任主理主教及差傳部長,意味著國際五旬節聖潔會行之有效的宣教策略將一貫地延續下去。但是次大會尚有許多值得一提的故事,郭志榮牧師及梁靄庭牧師已把他們的所見所聞所感都一一道來,值得大家關注。

    伍牧師為華人基督教聯會主講的培靈會,今次連載的是第二講,以「在弱勢中成為強者」為題。究竟這由弱轉強的關鍵何在?想知道的話,請細心追看下去。至於郭牧師講巴別塔故事,也是別出心裁。他旁徵博引,論證巴別塔根本從未動工,而揚言建塔上通天界的人,他們的名字也早已在歷史中被刪掉。究竟他們失敗的原因是甚麼?
    請你展卷細讀。

    The 29th IPHC General Conference has been held in USA this July. What drew the most attention was the election of the General Superintendent and the three Executive Directors. The results came within general expectation as Rev. Dr. Doug Beacham continues to be the Presiding Bishop for another term while Rev. Talmadge Gardner remains in his position as the Executive Director of World Missions Ministries. This means that IPHC’s existing effective strategy will keep going. Apart from the election, there are many inspiring episodes of the event worth mentioning. Rev. Eddy Kwok and Rev. Doris Leung have shared with us the highlights from their perspectives.

    This issue published Rev. Donavan Ng’s sermon for the second night of the Revival Meeting organized by the Hong Kong Chinese Christian Churches Union, titled “The way of strength – to gain power of the powerless”. What is the key for the weak to get strong? Read for the answer. On the other hand, Rev. Eddy Kwok’s sermon on Babel brought up a very interesting point: that the tower of Babel has never been built! Even the names of those who had the ambition to build the sky-tall tower had vanished in history. Why did they fail? Have a look at the Field Superintendent’s sermon.

    Editor’s Note:

    By the time when this publication is issued, Rev. Eddy Kwok has taken up the position as the Field Superintendent in Hong Kong of International Pentecostal Holiness Church, succeeding Rev. Donavan Ng. Rev. Ng has been in the position for 25 years with unprecedented contributions, which were highly recognized by IPHC’s Headquarters. Under the shadow of this great predecessor, how would Rev. Kwok handle this significant position? The interview with him will show us his chain of thoughts.

    From this issue onward, the column Sermon of the Field Superintendent will publish the sermons of Rev. Eddy Kwok. However, the sermons of Rev. Donavan Ng are not going to be missed. As such, a new special column is dedicated for Rev. Ng’s precious insights to God’s words. This new column will start with the series of sermons by Rev. Ng for the Revival Meeting of The Hong Kong Chinese Christian Churches Union in November last year. This issue carries the first night of the week-long event while the rest is yet to come.

    Taking a wider perspective, our missionaries from three different mission points of the world have also written to us sharing about their ministries and outlook under the impact of the pandemic. Your prayers are most needed.

    編者的話・

    這本刊物命名為《總監督綜覽》,顧名思義,是從總監督的視角來觀看香港五旬節聖潔會的大小事,並展望香港與總會的關係。因此,我們特別刊登伍牧師在新一屆按牧典禮上的發言,從中可以更深地了解牧長對新一代牧者的期許,並看到牧長自己自蒙召以來在事奉生涯中的佳美
    見證。

    說到佳美見證,在全球新冠病毒的肆虐下,我們更清晰地看到各地宣教士為主作工的心志。香港差出幾個地區的宣教士,他們與世界各地的宣教士一樣,都是雲彩般的見證人,默默地在異地開展華人福音事工。請記念他們的勞苦。此外,與伍牧師有深厚交情的格里牧師(Rev. Mike Gray)最近因病辭世、安息主懷,本期宣教略影特別刊載相關之悼念文章。

    請記念聖工在全球的拓展,我們深信神必定興起更多忠勇有謀略的牧者和宣教士,在這看似艱難的世代,在世界不同角落為福音綻放光彩,結出豐盛的美果。

    Editor’s Note:

    The name of this booklet explains its contents well,
    that is to see the world, especially the issues relating to the Pentecostal Holiness Church, from the perspective of the Field Superintendent in Hong Kong. In this very first issue, the sermon of Rev. Donavan Ng at HKPHC’s Ordination Service on the 3rd of October, 2021, is featured, from which one can see Rev. Ng’s expectations for the newly ordained as well as the wonderful testimonies during his own dedicated life of service.

    Under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a plenty of great testimonies all around the world as missionaries everywhere have been working harder than ever. The couple of missionaries sent from Hong Kong to several regions have joined force in teaming up as a great cloud of witnesses when they work tirelessly on the ministries for overseas Chinese. Besides, this issue recorded a featured column in remembrance of late Bishop Mike Gray who passed away and entered the glorious presence of our Lord Jesus Christ in October 2021.

    Please remember in prayers the development of ministries all around the world. Our God will definitely raise up more courageous and faithful servants amid these hard times. The tougher it gets, the brighter His followers will shine in different parts of the world by sharing His words and promises.
