傳教士的小故事(十八):在義和團之亂裡殉道的小聶姑娘(Miss May Rose Nathan)(三

(2016-01-08 20:00:18)
剛剛發現一本英文內地會在1901年出的殉道士書,再讀這位殉道士的英文版本書信,心再次被大大觸動。將在宣教士培靈會裡分享這見證。也與你們分享。

小聶姑娘(Miss May Rose Nathan)在日記留下給母親的話: 「親愛的媽媽,無論你聽到有關我的任何消息,請不要擔心。以世俗的眼光來看,來這裡不過一年,剛學會一點中文,就戛然而止,似乎浪費。許多人會說:『為甚麼她要去呢?浪費生命!』親愛的,絕非如此!要信靠神,祂絕不誤事,祂的作為全然美好。」

Darling Mother, don’t be anxious, whatever news you may hear of me. It will seem useless in the eyes of the world to come out here for a year, to be just getting on with the language, then to be cut off. Many will say, "Why did she go? wasted life." Darling, No. Trust God does His very best, and never makes mistakes.There are promises in the Word that the Lord will save His servants, and deliver them from the hands of evil men. Dear, it may be the deliverances will come through death, and His hands will receive, not the corruptible, but the incorruptible, glorified spirit.I have no absolute confidence that we shall be spared what these dear ones have suffered…We are called to suffer with Jesus. Very literally one takes the Scriptures nowadays, just as the first Christians did ; they endured physical suffering for Jesus. We often endure mental and spiritual, and now we are called to endure, perhaps, extreme bodily suffering. But, darlings, death is but the gate of life, we shall see His face, and, darling Mother, I’ll wait and long for you there ! Our dear friends and relatives, God alone can comfort them.
