親愛的「希望之光」朋友們:

總覺得我來到「希望之光」當志工,好像只是幾個月以前的事。2006 年時,我只是來幫忙募款和行政工作。然而,如今我仍在這裡,仍不斷祈求上帝,在我帶領這奇妙的事工時賜與我智慧,讓我與這個極為委身的團隊一同努力,使「希望之光」持續成為臺灣人的祝福。

我九歲時就感受到神呼召我成為宣教士。那時就有宣教士來告訴我們許多關於美麗的「福爾摩沙」和臺灣人的美好故事。但有誰想過我真會的來到了這裡,幫助受過傷害、未婚懷孕的女性?然而,上帝曾帶領我走過生命中的死蔭幽谷,使我成為心懷憐憫的人,來幫助其他人,穿越她們的死蔭幽谷。有些路徑或許低淺;有些深谷卻高低難平,然而每個人都會經歷生命中的幽谷。有些深谷甚至看起來似乎永遠無法跨越,就像我們的小媽媽們面對非預期懷孕時的感受一樣。

人們尋求著愛,太晚瞭解到性關係和墮胎會帶來傷害。我心懷感恩,因耶穌基督的愛「使受壓制的得釋放,傷心者得醫治」。如果在「希望之光」我們能夠做到一點點這樣的工作的話,就已不辜負耶穌來到這世間的使命了。

希望之光完全是依靠奉獻來營運。感謝您的愛心與財務奉獻。敬邀您成為我們每月奉獻的 守護天使,一同照顧我們的個案和寶寶,並教導台灣的下一代性純潔和生命神聖的課程。您的支持使我們藉由耶穌基督彰顯愛與對過去羞愧、過錯和罪惡的寬恕,並將嶄新的希望之光撒向住在美麗福爾摩莎的臺灣人民身上。 當保護貧寒和窮乏的人,救他們脫離惡人的手。詩篇 82:4

Director’s letter

 

Dear Ray of Hope Friends,

It seems that only a few short months ago, in 2006, that I was asked to volunteer with Ray of Hope. I was to help raise funds and do administrative work. However today, I am still here, praying for God’s wisdom to work with a dedicated staff and to direct this amazing ministry to be a continued blessing to the people of Taiwan.

When I felt the Lord’s leading to be a missionary at nine years old, missionaries would come and tell us stories about beautiful Formosa and the wonderful Taiwanese people. Who would have ever dreamed I would be here, helping hurting, unwed moms? But God took me through valleys in my own life to fill me with compassion for others walking through their valleys. Our valleys may be shallow, deep, rough, or have deep and rugged ravines; but we each experience our own valley. Some valleys seem impossible to climb out of. That’s how our moms feel with an unwanted pregnancy.

People are looking for love, realizing too late the pain and sadness which comes with sexual relationships and abortion. I’m so thankful for the love of Jesus Christ who came to “set at liberty those that are bruised and to heal the brokenhearted.” If we are able to do that even a little at Ray of Hope, we have succeeded in what Jesus was sent to earth to do.

Ray of Hope operates totally on donations. Thank you for your love and financial support. I would like to ask you to partner with us by becoming a monthly Guardian Angel to care for our clients and precious babies and teach the youth of Taiwan. Your gifts allow us to radiate love and forgiveness of shame, guilt and sin, through Jesus Christ, while shedding a new ray of hope to the Taiwanese people in beautiful Formosa.

Rescue the poor and helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people. Psalm 82:4

Ministering to the hurting,

希望之光的起源

History在臺灣,一個擁有兩千三百萬人的島上,醫生表示每年有超過一百萬名嬰孩被墮胎。最近的調查顯示,超過53%的青少年少女在高中畢業前就有過性行為,是過去十年以來的四倍之多。婚前性行為、未成年懷孕和性傳染病的比例皆以驚人的速度不斷成長。臺灣是全世界出生率最低的國家,而希望之光相信這與臺灣的優生保健法有很大的關聯。

沒有人願意見到自己關愛的人陷入危機和苦難中。更何況是我們的天父,祂會如何地哀慟?祂全然的慈愛和憐憫激勵了一群愛祂且關心臺灣的宣教士婦女;經由她們的祈禱、籌畫和組織,在1999年九月希望之光慈善服事因此誕生,也就是今天的「財團法人基督教希望之光會」。

 

History

In Taiwan, an island of 23 million people, doctors tell us over one million babies are destroyed by abortion each year. A recent survey reveals that more than 53% of teens have experienced sex by the time they have finished high school, a figure which has increased four-fold in the past ten years. Premarital sex, teenage pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are increasing at an alarming rate. Today, Taiwan has the lowest birthrate in the entire world, which Ray of Hope believes is largely due to Taiwan’s Eugenic Protection Law.

None of us wants to see our loved ones struggling with crisis and suffering. How much more does our Heavenly Father’s heart grieve for them? His perfect love and mercy stirred a group of missionary women to begin to pray, plan, and organize. Then, in September, 1999 the Ray of Hope Mercy Ministries was born, which today is the Ray of Hope Christian Charitable Organization.
