親愛的兒童藝術節同工,平安!
Dear Coworkers of the Children’s Art Festival, Peace be with you!

雖然準備時間短促,今年的兒童藝術節在神的保守與帶領下圓滿的閉幕了!感謝 神當天賜給我們美好的天氣。也感謝各位同工,各自發揮無己的愛心,同心合一,分工合作,奉獻時間與精神,呈現出合神心意之成果在主面前,終得圓滿落幕,也獲得許多參與者的認同與讚賞。
Although the preparation period is short, this year the Children’s Art Festival came to an end under God’s guidance and protection! God blessed us with good weather that day. We want to thank all the coworkers for your loving hearts, and for dedicating your time and energy to present before God the most glorifying results. Everyone worked together in Christ and completed different tasks. This ministry, which brought joy to God, was completed successfully and gained a lot of appreciation from attendants.

在此次各項事工準備之過程,雖然準備時間短促,大家參與討論,從規劃安排場地、到佈置與事後之清理歸位,謝謝大家的努力。參與者的精彩演出吸引了不少的觀眾。美食加油站姐妹們的出錢出力,每個攤位負責弟兄姐妹的盡心盡力,當天的井然有序,更是讓人印象深刻。但大家內心所秉持的是「作主工榮耀上帝」,心裡面是歡喜快樂的,謹向神獻上感恩,並謝謝大家的辛勞。謝謝英文堂、各助道會、女傳道會、主日學、婦幼小組、神學生們等弟兄姐妹的擁躍參與讓我們有一家人同心服事的喜悅。同時也感恩有社區的兩個攤位的參與。
Different areas of this ministry, required labor of many days and nights, including meetings, planning, decorating, setting up and cleaning.
We thank all the brothers & sisters who worked hard for this special day. Sisters offered not only food but energy in food booth to raise fund. The orderly way, in which the day progressed was very impressive. But in our hearts, We all knew that we were doing God’s work and glorifying Him, so our hearts were filled with joy. Thank God for His blessings, and thank you all for your hard work. Especially, we thank God for having two booth offered by community friends. 。

當天節目的多彩多姿,除小朋友的參與,大哥哥大姐姐們以歌聲及舞技的加磁,更是帶來節目的高潮。今年表演節目除有懷恩幼稚園及社區舞蹈班的參與,美術作品及手工藝品的展示吸引無數會眾的注目。小小音樂家颇有架式的演出,的確扣人心弦。攤位除有每年注目的”陶藝試試站” 外,更有兒童主日學組的”卡哇伊娃娃國” 、 國立東華大學環境學院兩棲類保育研究室的” 愛蛙彩繪趣” 、社區的”書畫樂”站和解答疑問的”消息站” 。除多元化的享受外,最重要的是大家領受神的愛時,也願將愛心與需要的人分享。當天的愛心奉獻新台幣壹萬伍仟肆佰肆拾伍圓將由世界展望會為我們將愛心轉送給貧窮兒童。
The performance on that day is rich and vivid. Not only did the younger children attend, but the elder brothers’ and sisters’ singing, dancing performance also brought the high mood. Both Grace Kindergarten and community weekend classes give great performance. 。Little artist’s fantastic performances and work exhibitions attracted many people’s eyes. This year’s booth exhibition not only have our regular “Pottery Fun”, but was also supported by others such as “Kawai Doll” by the Children’s Sunday School, “Frog Coloring Fun” by National Tung Hwa University, “Chinese Pen Brush Art” by community friends, and the Q&A “Information booth”. The most important thing was that everybody received love from God and was willing to share their love with the ones who needed it. The festival’s collected love offering of NT$16,830.00 will be passed on by World Vision to needy poor children.

願這一切的一切,榮耀歸於神!!
All the glory be to God!!

『所以我親愛的弟兄們,你們務要堅固不可搖動,常常竭力多作主工,因為知道你們的勞苦,在主裡面不是徒然的。』(林前15:58)彼此共勉。
Let us use this verse to encourage one another: “Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58).
