SYDNEY- A nationwide evangelical effort March for Jesus 2006 has rocked 13 cities in Australia and New Zealand, attracting hundreds of Chinese young Christians to receive the message of Gospel.

The famous pastor from Hong Kong Rev. Ecoch Lam, Rev. Leung Wing Seen from Hong Kong Remembrance of Grace Church and Rev. Peter Wang from Australia, were invited as guest speakers to lead over 50 gatherings in Australia and New Zealand, including evangelistic events, retreats, family and marriage seminars and theological exchange forums.

Entering into the fifth year, Christian Music Mission New Zealand has led the entire events. On March 13, Rev. Leung Wing Seen was the keynote speaker on the gathering held at Sydney Zilver Chinese Restaurant. He used the Bible verses from Matthew 9:12, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick" to explain the spiritual situation among the non-believers. Through the law, no one can receive salvation, but only the love of the Lord can save a patient from death.

Speaking of the family problems that are very common among Chinese families, Leung said that the word "family" can be seen as "Father and Mother I Love You." And he described that love is to build, but not to destroy; to forgive, but not to condemn; to understand, but not to judge; to preserve, but not to just passion.

On the other occasion at the Central Baptist Church in Sydney, Leung analyzed the possible reasons behind family problems. The first one is that parents failed to show love and care to their children, and the second one maybe the family gives love too recklessly.

Leung suggested that both discipline and love should be emphasized and be balanced. He encouraged parents to show a good example to their children by disciplining their lives, caring the family, controlling their temper, encouraging one another, and studying the word of God.
