自今年一月開始, 新型冠狀病毒在七個多月內己逐漸擴散全球兩百一十三個國家. 受感染的人數日漸攀升. 許多教會遵循政府下令暫停一切聚會. 教會和福音機構的事工都受疾情影響, 不得不取消或延期己安排的事工計劃和活動. 疾情將會持續多久, 這是難以預測.
加拿大普世大使命中心(簡稱大使命中心)原定在今年七月下旬安排牧長和教會領袖的”羅姆人事工異象巡禮”和”羅姆人青少年事工短宣之旅”. 兩者都因疾情之故己全部取消. 暫時延到明年夏天舉行. 詳情日後另行通知各位.
今年初, 大使命中心與世界華福加拿大聯區, 協同華人福音普世差傳會(加拿大), 美國普世豐盛生命中心, 美國EFCA和Roma Networks, 計劃明年三月二十四至二十六日在多倫多舉辦”北美羅姆人事工研討會”. 主題是”健康的牧師與教會” (Healthy Pastor Healthy Church). 邀請塞爾維亞的Miki牧師, 羅馬尼亞的Nelu牧師和克羅地亞的Sasa弟兄為大會講員. 二十四日, 二十五日和二十六日一連三晚有公開性聚會, 由上述三位講員分別主講, 並介紹當前的羅姆人生活和福音事工. 二十四日和二十五日兩天由上午九時至下午四時半有專題研討. 請各位預留時間参加. 詳情將於九月下旬公佈.
面對疾情的廣泛感染, 讓我們選擇仰望創造主. 祈求平靜安穩. 並向世人廣傳耶穌基督的福音, 分享從神而來的平安和喜樂. 尤其是對羅姆人在生活上和信仰上的需要, 懇切為他們代禱和奉獻, 請支持羅姆人的福音事工.

Praying for the Roma
Rev. Grover Crosby
Almighty and Gracious God, we come to you in Jesus name on behalf of the Roma people (nation). You know the plight of these dear people as they try to survive in an unwelcoming, deprived and hostile environment. Thank you for the spread of the gospel among them, giving them hope and a positive identity. Thank you for the growing number of leaders, both within their communities and non-Roma partners, being raised up to bring them to faith in Jesus, and ground them in their faith. We pray for the Roma leaders. Guide them as they develop strategies to reach their people, and provide the resources needed to establish churches among them. We pray for the youth movements springing up presently. We pray for a new generation of Spirit filled believers to empower the churches. Raise up workers/volunteers who can help with education, health and the development of healthy communities. Thank you for hearing our prayer in Jesus name. Amen!
