第十九天 繼續通過廣播開展工作──Day 19 Continuing the work with radio

For English version, please refer to the latter part of this page

由於伊萬和多麗絲.肖恩一家和其他宣教士,都於20世紀下半葉在蘇里南服侍,瓦亞納族和特裡奧族都從自然信仰轉向了接受耶穌基督的福音。

湯姆.肖恩,這個家庭中最年輕的成員說,在1970年代,肖恩一家聽說有另一個福音未及的“石器時代”部落,它位於更深的叢林深處。他們發現有跡像表明這些傳聞是真實的,他們決定去尋找這個神秘的部落。

“我們尋找了三年,”湯姆說。“瓦亞納族和特里奧族完全相信這個神秘部落的存在。他們剛剛擺脫了邪靈的束縛,很興奮能夠成為這次遠征的一部分。”

當阿庫里奧族(Akurio)被找到時,他們幾乎已快滅絕了。他們生活在邪靈的控制下,自殺率高,近親結婚率上升,健康問題增加。只剩下86或87人。

瓦亞納族和特里奧族歡迎阿庫里奧族進入他們的村莊。除了一人,所有人都信仰了基督。湯姆認為,瓦亞納族和特里奧族之所以熱衷於向鄰近部落傳福音,是因為他們經歷了上帝。隨著族人向其它更適合狩獵、捕漁、和耕種的地方遷移,他們也留意到族人將需要繼續接受門徒訓練。

這就是這些部落轉向廣播和環球電台的原因。在加利福尼亞州一家教會牧會的湯姆.肖恩和他的妻子朱寧加入了這項事工,與這些部落合作。他們計劃在一個瓦亞納村莊和一個特里奧村莊建立發射台和電台。至今,當地政府已經批准了必要的許可證,感謝主!也許在你閱讀這篇文章的時候,第二個許可證也已被批准了。與此同時,湯姆一直忙於將節目翻譯成瓦亞納語。

節目將以三種語言開始廣播。湯姆與另一名宣教士和每個部落的兩名成員,共同組成一個委員會來管理這個工作。“這個節目由他們做主,” 湯姆說。“廣播中的所有細節,他們都有最後的決定權。”

瓦亞納族和特里奧族的宣教士遇到一個部落之後,會在當地待上長達六個月,有時另一支隊伍會接替他們的工作繼續留在當地。

“但是他們覺得有了這些收音機,將會帶來巨大的幫助,因為他們只要把收音機留在那裡,以當地人的語言來廣播教導的內容。”

禱告

蘇里南部落正把福音傳得更遠、更深入,感謝讚美主!求祢敞開廣播的大門,
讓祢的話語很快地在整個蘇里南傳播。也願祢激發我的心參與宣教的工作。

Day 19 Continuing the work with radio

As the family of Ivan and Doris Schoen and other missionaries served in Suriname during the latter half of the 20th century, both the Wayana and Trio tribes went from animistic faiths to embracing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In the 1970s, the Schoens heard rumors that another unreached, Stone-Age tribe made its home farther into the jungle, said Tom Schoen, the youngest member of the family. They came across indications that the rumors were true, and they decided to search for the mystery tribe.

“We looked for three years,” Tom said. “The Wayana and the Trio completely bought into it. They had just been delivered from the power of evil spirits. They were excited to be part of the expedition.”

By the time the Akurio tribe were found, they had almost died out. They lived in bondage to evil spirits. The result was a downward spiral: a high rate of suicide, intermarriage, increasing health problems. Only 86 or 87 of them were left.

The Wayana and Trio welcomed the Akurio into their villages. All but one came to faith in Christ. Tom said he thinks that early experience is why the Wayana and Trio are on fire to reach other nearby tribes. They also are concerned that discipleship continue for members of their own people as they move farther out to fruitful places for hunting, fishing and gardening.

That’s what led the tribes to radio, and to TWR. Tom Schoen, who had pastored a church in California, and his wife, Junine, joined the ministry. Working with the tribes, they made plans for a transmitter and station in one Wayana village and in one Trio village. Praise God that one of the necessary government licenses has been granted. Perhaps by the time you read this the second one also will be approved. In the meantime, Tom has been busy translating programs into the Wayana language.

Initially, programs will be broadcast in three languages. Tom sits on a committee with another missionary and two members of each tribe to govern the effort. “They’ll be the owners of it,” he said. “And they’ll have the final say on what takes place on the radio.”

Wayana and Trio missionaries will stay for as long as six months with a tribe they encounter, and sometimes another team takes up where they’ve left off.

“But they feel like if they had these radios, man, it would just be huge because they could even leave those radios there and broadcast teaching materials in the language of these other people.”

PRAYER

Dear Lord, with a thankful heart I praise you for the missionary movement happening among Suriname tribes to reach further and deeper across their country. Open doors for the radio station development so your Word can be broadcast across Suriname soon. Stir my heart deeper into missions as I see the Wayana tribes reaching their own country.
