Promote Daniel's plan!
推动但以理计划​

written by Chairman of BOE, Rev. Wong Kee Sing (2011-2014,2017-Present)

In Sarawak to preach the gospel and evangelize, we must pay attention to the indigenous people. Judging from the current population, the indigenous people have more than 50% of Sarawak’s total population; therefore, in terms of strategic thinking, resource utilization, and manpower arrangements, indigenous civil workers are definitely the focus.

We must also do everything possible to stay contact with the indigenous people through schools, longhouses and churches, also through teachers, missionaries, pastors, brothers and sisters to tell them about Jesus. On the other hand, as long as everyone is willing, young people or anyone can work together on the evangelism of the indigenous people.

Promote Daniel's plan!

Nowadays, a group of young Chinese has emerged to spread the gospel among the young indigenous people, help the indigenous people know more about the Christian faith, challenge them to dedicate themselves, and guide them in various ways. We plan to call this group of Chinese young people the “Daniel Project” for the following reasons: let the aboriginal people keep their faith; let the aboriginal people become the leaders of the times; and let them influence other aboriginal people. These three aspects are Daniel’s life.

In addition, A Ministry for the Indigenous people group under Board of Evangelism is working hard to develop the Native Language Bible. We have no experience in this area, but we cooperate with SIL to learn and make progress slowly. Gospel, faith, cultivation, and writing are all important. Therefore, we do our best to leave their writings for the indigenous people. This ministry is very difficult, but it is worth it. May the Lord help us.

Currently, there are 15 missionaries and missionary staffs in the Board of Evangelism.  But we need more missionaries. Brothers and sisters, or pastors who answered God’s calling can contact the Board of Evangelism. In addition, we also welcome brothers and sisters to share your visions with us. If feasible, the Board of Evangelism can arrange for you to go to the mission fields you suggest to go as missionaries. We are convinced that God also touches your heart and allows you to see future direction and places.

Finally, let us have a reminder and encouragement from Philippians 1:7: “It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.”

在砂拉越传福音、布道,我们不能不关注原住民。以目前的人数来看,原住民占砂拉越总人口百分之五十以上;所以,从策略思考、资源动用、人力安排,原住民事工绝对是重点。

我们也总要用尽方法和原住民接触,在学校、长屋、教会,透过老师、宣教士、牧者/弟兄姐妹,将耶稣告诉他们。另一方面,只要大家愿意,无论是年轻人或任何人,都可以在原住民布道的事上一同努力。

推行“但以理计划”

如今,有一班年轻的华人兴起,在原住民年轻人当中传福音,帮助原住民更加认识基督信仰,挑战他们献身,多方引导他们。我们打算把这班华人年轻人所做的叫“Daniel Project”,原因有:让原住民守住信仰;让原住民成为时代的领袖;也让他们去影响其他原住民。这三方面就是但以理的生命。

另外,原住民母语圣经是布道部原住民事工小组正在努力发展的事工。我们在这方面没有经验,但我们和SIL合作,慢慢学习,慢慢进步。福音、信主、栽培和文字都是重要的。因此,我们尽所能为原住民留下他们的文字。这事工非常艰难,但是值得,愿主帮助我们。

目前,布道部有9位宣教士。明年,至少有2位加入,但工场之大,我们还需要更多更多的宣教士。有呼召的弟兄姐妹或牧者都可与布道部联络。此外,我们非常欢迎弟兄姐妹与我们分享你们的看见。若是可行,布道部可以安排你们去到你们建议去的工场为宣教士。我们深信上帝也感动你们,并且让你们看见方向和地方。

最后,让我们一起从腓立比书一7得提醒和鼓励:“只要你们行事为人与基督的福音相称,叫我或来见你们,或不在你们那里,可以听见你们的景况,知道你们同有一个心志,站立得稳,为所信的福音齐心努力。”
