哇! 2021年是很特別的一年。充滿了各種事件，似乎一波又一波洶湧的風暴接二連三地衝擊 著我們。 不僅是對張家，也是對全恩事工以及我們所服事的教會傳福中心。
3月：Daniel 在回家的路上被人撞了一下，結果箱型車被撞得面目全非，我們需要尋找一輛 新的箱型車來代替它。感謝神，我們終於能夠在六月購買一輛二手但相當新的箱型車。特別 是在這個新舊車都短缺的時期。
9月間，一場暴風雨襲擊並淹沒了我們的家，因為暴風雨摧毀了新澤西州的城鎮，上帝保護 我們不受最壞的結果影響，很多人們因此失去了家，需要住在臨時的避難所。洪水使我們的 地下室無法使用，需要徹底翻修，但感謝上帝從我們的家人、基督裡的弟兄姐妹那裡得到了 資金幫助，使我們能進行修復，我們在九月底十月初解決了造成淹水的房屋根基問題，感謝 神。
HIC (傳福中心)還完成了漫長的聽證會、鄉鎮會議的過程，終於正式得到了Hillsborough Road(希爾斯堡) 490號作為HIC的新家聚會地點。Tony和Tina與HIC同工團隊一起去禱告，潔 淨土地。
10月10日，Tony和Tina與許宗實牧師和妻子Molica以及一群弟兄姐妹一起，為我們剛剛購買 的教會土地進行了屬靈的潔淨。主在靈裡向Tony顯示，有三組邪靈佔據了這塊地。我們把油 倒在土地的四個角落和邊緣上，畫出我們的產業界線，也把木樁釘在地上，並宣讀經文宣佈 它的所有權屬於主耶穌，我們把土地奉獻給主。求主赦免在這塊地上所犯的任何罪。Tony看 到的三組邪靈是共濟會、巴弗滅Baphomet和巴力Baal，還有許多鬼魂（人的靈魂）在這塊地 上徘徊。在把土地獻給主之後，我們切斷了與這些邪靈及鬼魂的聯繫，並把這些邪靈趕走， 鬼魂(死人的靈魂)交給耶穌 。邀請耶穌做我們產業的主，請天使來守護我們的土地。週二的 禱告會上，Tony被主感動，向HIC發出預言。這包括主將使HIC繁榮七倍, 高過我們的想法，祂 的榮耀將充滿我們中間。祂會來住在我們中間。這就是我們教會的異象願景。
然而，這成了我們最難經歷的十月，周日晚上Molica（師母）開始發燒，新冠病毒檢測呈陽性。在Tony為HIC做完最後一次預言後，第二天許牧師被檢測出covid陽性，Tony開始嚴重地 乾咳起來。我們以為是因為他和我一起去打掃地下室而產生了過敏反應。他以前也有過敏 反應。之後，Tony開始出現頭痛，他告訴Tina，這是敵人的反擊。我們懷疑他可能感染了病毒。我們開始祈禱並與之抗爭。我們似乎遇到了一個巨大的阻力。Tina尋求主，主啟示我們 ，這些都是新澤西州NJ的執政掌權的邪靈。
Tina請求為新澤西州NJ的禱告小組為新澤西州NJ的所有犯罪得罪神的罪孽代禱，認罪悔改， 然後我們覺得靈裡的重擔減輕了。然而，Tina後來也開始發燒，也感染了Covid，Molica和許 牧師也是如此。Tony和許牧師後來發現血氧水準下降到90以下，Tony的讀數是86。我們決定 把他送到急診室。沒想到他和許牧師都因為同樣的問題去了急診室，而且他們兩個都不能 再出來了，我們也不能見他們。他們倆就像被囚禁在病房裡。兩人最初似乎都有希望恢復， 但當他們的情況轉好時，突然急轉直下，許牧師在11月1日歸回天家與主同在，Tony在11月7 日也歸回天家與主同在了。
在Tony住院期間，Tina開始尋找新澤西州的歷史，特別是Hillsborough(希爾斯堡)的歷史。 Tony和Tina以前做了很多土地潔淨的事工，在中國、臺灣、紐澤西，紐約的家庭、教會建築， 從來沒有一塊土地碰到過執政掌權的邪靈。這些執政掌權的邪靈也特別是在美國的堅固營 壘。按照主的指示，Tina開始讚美神，相信神的信實。教會大家庭中的許多弟兄姐妹也起來 為Tony和Fred禱告。我們尋求主，一起打屬靈的仗，我們得到啟示，我們是在女巫和巫師的 詛咒之下。
通過查找Hillsborough (希爾斯伯勒)和新澤西州的歷史，我們發現早期的荷蘭定居者對最初 歡迎他們並與他們簽訂條約的原住民做了不公義的事情。他們用狡猾的伎倆在原住民之間 製造戰爭，後來又背叛了條約，甚至引進在歐洲肆虐的瘟疫，如天花、瘧疾等。他們成功地 殺死了90%原本居住在新澤西州的美國原住民，後來他們得以佔領所有的土地，並在此定 居。我們還發現，新澤西州政府在對待黑人奴隸時也有欺騙性的法律，甚至在內戰結束後， 奴隸們本應該獲得自由卻仍被限制。甚至Neshanic（希爾斯伯勒的隔鄰）的教堂也在教堂裡
折磨黑奴和把他們吊在聖壇右邊作為對他們的懲罰。政府員警用酷刑來懲罰那些因為奴隸 主的壓迫而喝醉的奴隸。新移民和所謂的上帝的子民對美國原住民和黑人犯了罪。美洲原 住民薩滿巫師也因為受害而對土地上的移民新來者下了咒語。雖然我們終於能夠處理詛咒 的根源，並把這個女巫的靈魂交給耶穌。然而，Tony和許牧師被帶到主那裡，我們可以說他 們是這場屬靈爭戰的殉道者，為保護我們以及最後的得勝受苦付上代價。當我們在為他們 的復活禱告時，最終發現主是要我們為基督的身體，天國議會Ekklesia的復活，大復興禱告。
Tony的離開對我們的家庭來說是特別的，在11月6-7日，馬修Matthew、丹尼爾Daniel和克莉 絲汀Christine都收到了Tony的靈來訪的異象和話語，告訴他們他愛他們，許多弟兄姐妹也都 經歷了Tony在夢中他的靈訪。Tina沒有在靈裡看到他，但每當她傳道時都能感覺到他的同 在。這就像Tony與主同在，但同時又與Tina同在。
Tina非常感謝主，因為儘管同時與屬靈爭戰和病毒爭戰很艱難，但在所有代禱者的支持和 啟示下，她總是在醫院傳來壞消息之前收到安慰和希望的啟示。主一直在鼓勵她，讓她保持 堅定的信心，繼續相信祂仍然是信實、慈愛的父親。祂仍然是全能的上帝，能使一切成為可能。雖然主似乎沒有聽我們為Tony和許牧師得到醫治或復活的禱告。主的意念高過我們的意念，祂的道路與我們的道路不同。主後來還透露，因為許牧師和Tony都已經把他們的生命獻給了祂。因此祂照祂的旨意做了最好的決定，沒有通知我們。這對我們來說也是一個火的試煉，使我們能有一個不動搖的信心來面對未來的艱難。
Tina為Tony的告別策劃了一個老兵的葬禮，在瞻仰過程中，為每一個來的人祝福和禱告，氣 氛充滿了喜樂和主的同在，一個姐妹說這治癒了她過去不愉快的瞻仰經歷，一些弟兄姐妹 遠道而來，而大多數人則是在線上參加。
對於這個問題，神已經給了我們方向，Tina將繼續專注於教導和裝備聖徒，繼續把Tony和 Tina 自事工開始以來所學到的經驗真理盡可能多地分享給願意領受的弟兄姐妹們。Tony的 孩子們將和Tina一起分擔Tony的先知啟示事工的擔子。Christine克莉絲汀也在繼續整理神要 Tony寫的關於Tony的生命經歷和事工的書。我們作為一個家庭，也是神國度的屬靈家庭，將 繼續奔跑前面的道路，接過Tony留下的棒子，繼續遵循聖靈的指引，幫助基督的身體推展神的國。幫助每一個神的孩子領受祂已經賜下的豐盛生命的祝福。
Dear beloved family of Sozo Ministries:
WOW! What a year as 2021. Full of events, it seems wave after wave that the raging storm is hitting on us one after another. Not only to Chong family but also to Sozo ministry and the church we serve at, Harvest International Center.
Year 2021 is truly a year of challenges and new transitions.
March: some one hit Daniel while he was on the way home, resulting in the van being totaled and we need to search for a new van to replace it. We thank God that we were able to finally purchase a 2nd hand but pretty new van in June. Especially in this time of shortage.
During September, a storm hit and flooded our home, as the storm took out towns in New Jersey God had protected us from the worst of outcomes, where people have lost home and got misplaced. The flood left our basement unusable and needed to be completely renovated, but thankfully God has provided us with financial help from our family, brothers and sisters in Christ to repair it. Thanks to the Lord that we fixed the foundation leaking problem in the house.
HIC also completed the long process of hearing, township meetings, and finally officially got 490 Hillsborough Road to be HIC’s new home gathering location. Tony and Tina went with the HIC coworker group to pray and cleanse the land.
October10th Tony and Tina join with pastor Fred and wife Molica and a group of brother and sister to do the spiritual cleansing for the land our church just purchased. In Spirit, the Lord showed Tony that there are 3 groups of spirits that occupied the land. We poured the oil on the 4 corners and edges of the land and drew our property line, also nailed in the wooden stumps into the ground and proclaim the scriptures declare its ownership to the Lord, we dedicated the land to the Lord. Asked the Lord to forgive any sin that was committed on the land. The three groups of spirits that Tony saw were Freemason, Baphomet, and Baal. Also there were many ghosts (human spirit) wandering on the land.
After dedicating the land to the Lord, we cut linkings with the spirit, cast out those spirits and committed all the spirits of death to the Lord. Invited Jesus to be the Lord of our property and angels to come and guard our land. Tuesday during a prayer meeting, Tony was moved by the Lord to give prophecy to HIC. That included that “the Lord will prosper HIC 7 times then what
we thought, His glory will fill among us. He will come dwell among us,” which is our church vision.
However, this became one of our most difficult October to go through, Sunday night Molica (pastor’s wife) started having fever and tested covid positive. After Tony gave his last prophecy for HIC, the next day Fred caught covid positive, Tony started dry cough badly. We thought because he came with me to clean up the basement and got an allergic reaction. He used to have an allergic reaction. Afterwards Tony started to develop a headache, and he told Tina it’s enemy’s back fire attack. We suspected he might have caught covid. We started to pray and fight against it. We seemed to hit on a huge resistance. Tina sought the Lord and the Lord revealed that these are the ruling spirit of NJ.
Tina asked NJ prayer group to pray and intercede for NJ for all the iniquities that people sinned against the Lord then we felt spiritual burden was lighter. However, Tina later also started having fever and also contracted Covid, as did Molica and pastor Fred. Tony and Fred later found blood oxygen level dropped below 90, Tony’s reading was 86. We decided to send him to the ER. Never thought he and Fred both went to ER with the same issue and both of them were not able to come out again and we couldn’t see them, either. It was like both of them were imprisoned in the covid unit. At first we were filled with hope and they seemed to be able to recover, but as their situation turned better, then suddenly it turned sharply downwards and Fred had gone to be with the Lord on Nov 1st, Tony went with the Lord on Nov 7th.
During the time of Tony’s hospitalization, Tina started searching for NJ history, especially for Hillsborough. Tony and Tina had done many land cleansing Ministries before, families, church buildings in China, Taiwan, NJ, NY, never had a piece of land that we encountered the ruling spirits. These groups of spirits also specially the stronghold of America as well. As the Lord instructed Tina to start praising God and put trust in God’s faithfulness. Many brothers and sisters of the church family raised up to pray for Tony and Fred also. We sought the Lord and fought the spiritual battles together, we received revelation that we were under the curse of witches and sorcerer.
Through the history of Hillsborough and NJ, we found that the early Dutch settlers had done injustice to the 1st nation people who first welcomed them and made treaties with them. They have used cunning tricks that caused war between the native people, and later betrayed the treaty, even imported plagues in Europe like small pox, malaria etc. They successfully killed 90% of Native American who originally resided in NJ, and later on they were able to take all the land and settle here.
We also find that NJ government treat black slaves with deceitful law as well even after the civil war that slaves were supposed to be freed. Even church in Neshanic (neighbor of Hillsborough) tortured and hung them in church as punishment. Government police use torture to punish slaves who were drunk because of oppressions from the slave master. The new immigrant and so called the people of God sinned against Native American and black people. Due to hurt, the native American shamans put curses to immigrant newcomers on the land. Although we are finally being able to deal with the root cause of the curses and commit the human spirit of these witches. However, with Tony and Fred being taken to the Lord, we can say they are the martyrs of this spiritual warfare. They paid the price of their lives and suffered through to gain our final victory. When we were praying for their resurrection, we realized that the Lord’s will is for us to pray for the revival of Ekklesia, the body of Christ and the great awakening.
Tony’s departure was special to our family, on November 6-7th, Matthew, Daniel, and Christine all have received visions and words of Tony’s spiritual visitation, telling them he loves them, many brothers and sisters too have experienced Tony’s spiritual visitation. Tina has not seen him in spirit but felt his presence whenever she ministered. It’s like Tony is with the Lord yet with Tina at the same time.
Tina is very grateful to the Lord, as even though it’s tough to fight spiritual battle and covid virus at the same time but with all the intercessors support and revelation that she always receives revelation of comfort and hope before the bad news from hospital. Lord had been encouraging and kept her faith strong to stand firm and continue to trust that He is still the faithful, and loving Father. He is still Almighty and God that makes all things possible. Although it seems that the Lord did not listen to our prayer for Tony and Fred to be healed or resurrected. The Lord’s thought is higher than our thoughts and His way is different from our ways. The Lord also revealed later that because both Fred and Tony already gave their life to Him. Therefore, He did what His will to be without informing us. It’s also a fiery trial for us so that we can have an unshakable faith to face future hardship.
Tina planned a veteran’s funeral for Tony’s farewell. During the viewing, blessed and prayed for everyone who came, the atmosphere was full of joy and Lord’s presence, one sister said it healed her of her past unpleasant viewing experience, and some brothers and sisters traveled far to attend while most attended on zoom.
A question was asked, what is the future of the ministry after Tony’s departure?
For that, God has already given us the direction, Tina will continue to focus on teaching and equipping the saints, imparting what Tony and Tina have learned since the start of the ministry to as many willing brothers and sisters as possible. Tony’s children will be sharing the load doing Tony’s prophetic ministry with Tina. Christine is also continuing putting together the book on Tony’s life and ministry that God had asked Tony to write. We as a family and also God’s kingdom spiritual family will continue to run the race, take up the baton that Tony left and keep on following Holy Spirit guidance and helping the body of Christ to advance the Kingdom of God. Help every child of God to receive His blessing of abundant life.
Tina, Christine and family
