Everybody's Birthday

According to the Chinese New Year tradition, the 7th day is a special day, it' everybody's birthday. And to celebrate this day, we eat a special delicacy call the Yu Sheng.

Its raw fish and a bundle of other stuffs...

Amanda started the ball rolling,

Whoever is selected to pour in the ingredient must say words of blessings.

"Huat la!!! Huat La!!! Flowing with milk and honey!"

"Prosperity coming your way!!"

And finally... the process of mixing...

Open House

Its Chinese New Year!!!

Who say Christians don't celebrate Chinese New Year?

This is "Tradition"... nothing to do with "Religion"

Anyway, to us, Christianity is not a religion, its a relation. Relation with God, and relation with people.

What better way to strengthen relationships than to visit people during this season?

After moving into his love-nest for a year, our leader finally opened his house for the cell group to visit on Sunday. We finally got a chance to see how this man of God decorated his home, where he prayed every night, where he had... his meals.

We ate and drank and fellowshipped.

Everyone loved the hospitality of Chee Foo.

Next stop, they came to Sengkang, home of Richard and Xanthe for the past 7 years.

The lady of the house showed them interesting photos and videos of her trip to New Zealand, and told stories of her encounters with the lovely people there.

Gong Xi Gong Xi...

May God bless you to be prosperous with wealth and health.
