Board Chairman's Message

ENGLISH VERSION

In the past two (2) years, AFC’s Board of Directors has spent a significant amount of time discussing our organizational vision and future direction. Earlier this year, the board reaffirmed AFC’s mission statement, with minor adjustments to include the phrase primarily Chinese students.

It is to reflect our heritage and our calling to continue to reach the ethnic-Chinese student population in Canada, but also to reflect the reality that we do serve a multi-ethnic demographic with many non-Chinese students benefiting from our ministries. We are praying that God will bless us with a 5-10 year vision as we reach our 50th anniversary next year.


For the Executive Director search, we continue to covet your prayers. Although the process has been long (8+ months), God has taught us many lessons about where He is leading us. As Chairman of the Board, my task was to help fill the void and support the leadership team (Letty and Elizabeth) while the executive search continues. Please remember us as we wait upon the Lord to lead us through the remaining journey.


Financially, during this trying period with a significant decrease in revenue, we are thankful that God has provided through government COVID subsidies to keep our ministries afloat. Thank you for your continued partnership and financial support this year, even as you are also suffering various forms of difficulties and hardships. (See 2020 Financial numbers at the end of this message)


Last but not least, I hope the increased regularity and quality of AFC newsletters have been able to keep you better informed on what is happening on our campuses and to know how to pray for and support our ministries. Pray that God has been keeping you close, but also sending you far and wide (digitally) to be His Ambassadors in these uncertain times.


Merry Christmas,

Abraham Wong

Chairman of the Board



CHINESE VERSION

在過去的兩年,使者董事會對未來的展望和方向花了不少時間討論。今年初,董事會再次肯定我們的使命,並稍作調整,包括“主要是向華裔學生”一詞。這不僅反映了我們組織的初衷,並確認使者主要接觸的仍然是加拿大華裔學生,但同時也反映了許多非華裔學生受益於我們的事工。願父神賜給我們未來5至10年的異象,作為明年50週年記念的標記。


對於行政總幹事的招聘,儘管這個過程已長達8個月多,神在當中給我們許多功課,並讓我們更了解祂的指導。作為董事會主席,我會繼續填補行政總幹事職位的空缺,並在事工上盡力支持領導團隊(Letty & Elizabeth)。請繼續為我們等候神的帶領代禱。


今年財政預算,在這個收入大幅下降的艱難時期,我們感謝神準備了政府COVID補貼讓使者得以維持運作。縱使您也可能經歷難處和艱辛,感謝您今年在禱告和金錢上的支持。


最後,我們希望提升使者通訊的次數和質量,能夠讓您更了解校園的工作與發展,並為機構代禱和支持。在這個動盪的世代,祈求父神保守您並 與您同在,差遣您到各處作祂的福音使者。


祝聖誕快樂

王元頌
