列治文夜市是溫哥華市民與遊客熱捧的遊玩地點,單是進去停車也要排一個小時,可是,卻沒有減退遊客的熱情,據官方數字每日有3萬人入場,他們為了美食、購物排隊是可以理解,可是,在短宣中心在 7 月 6 日至 8 日舉辦「心靈加油站」的福音攤位卻絡繹不絕的有人在排隊進去,這真的神奇妙的工作!

短宣中心未來五年的宣教方向名為 Rise and Shine Movement (RSM),透過大型活動及使命小組,打破教會的牆,信徒主動接觸社區中未信主的人,走到人群中,而夜市是其中一個項目。今年夜市攤位的主題是「心靈加油站」,盼望為遊人帶來正能量。在這三晚的服侍中,我們都體驗神的大能與真實:

(1) 見證禱告的大能

第一天傍晚快要開始時,忽然颳起大風,差點要吹倒帳篷,而一大片的黑雲就在頭頂上,眾同工義工就禱告,瞬間黑雲吹散了,當曲終人散後,就下大雨;到第二天,烏雲在場地的外圍,沒有帶來任何影響。另外,在第三晚晚的首一個小時,幾乎是沒有人進攤位,這是不尋常的情況,於是我們又同心禱告,在五分鐘後居然有十幾人圍在外面,排隊進入攤位。另外,在夜市前禁食祈禱會中,聖靈提醒我們,要打破「黑夜」的掌管,「光」要進入會場;更要將「市集」變成為「萬國禱告禱告的殿」。天父是聽禱告的神!

(2) 經歷幔子被擴張

在籌備攤位時,同工們考慮過要服侍的人群,我們就按著能力,預備只服侍說粵語和國語的人群,於是攤位的橫額、心理測驗的玩法等等都是中文。神給我們開了一個玩笑,第一個進入攤位的,就是說英語的。這三晚共四百六十多人到訪,其中超過80%是說英語,有不同種族的,包括:印度人、泰國人、中東、歐洲人等等,也有不同宗教人士進來。

(3) 成為福音的管道

我們是透過兩個心理測驗和免費派發毛毛蟲來打開話題,而心理測驗是讓遊人知道自己人生的優先次序和壓力的來源。其實測驗的分析是很簡單,只有短短幾個字,當遊人驚訝為什麼這麼準確時,我們就關心他們,也打開福音的話題,在這三天共與 414 人分享完整救恩,而其中 43 人慕道、73 人決志。榮耀歸神!

(4) 開啟封蔽的心扉

在關心遊人的過程中,很多人都被聖靈觸摸、被明白及得醫治。例如:有個讀中學的女孩,她的人生就是以別人為優先,天父給筆者感動,繼續關心到她失去了自己,常常委屈自己、認為父母不愛她...又有一個外國女孩,她的壓力來自責任感,當她知道分析結果時,她說:是的,她是個完美主義者,於是筆者繼續關心她的要求過高,而「迫死自己」;又有一個二十多歲中國男孩,他在許多的抉擇中,不知道如何選擇,很擔心一子錯滿盆皆落索;再有一個印度女孩,她心裡的壓力來自現況,於是天父感動筆者關心她在學校被欺凌等,她最後忍不住問筆者為何那麼清楚她的狀況,因為神很愛我們每一個,當這些人被明白時,他們都流淚,最後也接受耶穌成為生命的救主,這是可等美麗的圖畫。

(5) 建立合一的隊工

這三晚需要大量的義工在不同的崗位中服侍,無論在前線負責推廣、招待、為人祈禱、講解救恩,又或是在後方做總務、祈禱的,都必須有同一心志,一同在夜市中高舉耶穌。感謝耶穌成為我們的元帥,在這次屬靈爭戰中,祂得勝有餘。

明年短宣中心將於 5-10 月間在夜市舉辦攤位,歡迎各教會認領時段, 共襄主工。詳情年底公佈,歡迎與 Carol Lam 傳道聯絡。
