華人的朋友-戴紹曾牧師逝世


  James Hudson Taylor 戴德生 (May 21, 1832 – June 3, 1905)的曾孫,戴紹曾(James Hudson Taylor III)牧師於2009年三月二十日清晨四點半,因病逝世於香港,兒孫均陪伴在側,在世的日子80年。戴牧師生於中國,也長於中國,他曾在2006年於澳門舉行的第七屆華福大會上說,希望自己也死於中國。當他說這話時,全場近三千人為之動容,多人流下感動的淚水,全場為他們夫婦鼓掌。神啊!他們是多麼愛中國。
  戴紹曾牧師家族迄今五代180年來都因著基督,服事中國人,委身在中國,無怨無悔,並以中國人自居......
  在下曾訪問過他,聽過他講道,他也來過詩巫,是一個對華人極具負擔的牧者......

Sad to learn that he has passed away but happy to know that he is with the Lord. Used to do many pulpit translations for him in Australia in 1990s(Ah Moh speaks Mandarin, a chinese translates into English). Also met him whilst in Singapore discussing the work of MSI (Medical Service International). One of the few who truly inspired in my Christian walk.

I first heard his sermon I thought he is a Chinese, he spoke a very accurate Mandarin.
I interviewed him while he came to Sibu 1985.
We really miss him.
