来自大洋彼岸的问候

Greetings from the other side of the ocean

“亲爱的中国姊妹,我非常高兴能认识你。……我今年70岁了,我喜欢阅读、缝纫、帮助别人,也喜欢认识新的朋友。我非常期待能与你见面或者通过书信交流……”。

“Dear sisters in China, I am very glad to see you... I’m 70 years old, and I like reading, sewing, helping others, and making new friends. And I’m eagerly looking forward to talking with you face to face or through letters.”

 

在春天里,溢福园老年公寓的两位姊妹收到了来自美国Schowalter Villa养老院两位姊妹的问候书信、贺卡和照片。Fran和Naomi是该养老院的两位院友,她们非常希望能和中国教会养老院的姊妹交朋友、互通书信,便委托前来参加全国教会养老服务研讨会的专家Treva将自己的书信礼物带给中国的姊妹。两地养老院,相隔千山万水;四位姊妹,素未谋面。但信件中真挚的问候、真实的介绍、真诚的期盼,无不透露出基督徒灵里相通、主内团契之爱。上帝的爱,使所有基督徒成为一家人,海内外各项教会事工的交流,使“家人”能有更好的认识、了解,彼此间有更好的扶持、帮助。

Two sisters living in Yifuyuan Elderly Apartment received greeting letters, cards and photos from two sisters of Schowalter Villa Rest Home in America in spring season. The two rest homes are far away from each other with thousands of mountains and rivers between them. And the four sisters never know each. However, the sincere greetings, the authentic introductions and the honest expectations in the letter tell the Christians’ Love of the communication in Holy Spirit and the fellowship in the Lord. The love from God makes all Christians one family. And the communication about church ministries both of national and of international makes “the family members” know more and learn more, and support and help each other in deed.

 

信件所带来的问候、期盼,将会使这几位姊妹有更深入、更欢快的交通。对于养老院中老人来说,这样的交流将会在她们生命中留下美好的见证。或许,对于彼此双方而言,这封信,就是来自于上帝之爱。

Greetings and expectations brought by the letter will lead deeper and happier communications between the four sisters. For the elder in rest homes, such communications are wonderful testimonies in their lives. Maybe, the letter itself is the love from God.
