Multiplication Night

As any healthy cell group is suppose to grow and multiply and spread throughout the earth for the glory of His Kingdom, so is this cell group...

N116 has grown since the last multiplication 2 years ago. With the cell group attendance of 27 and service attendance of 34, it is the fastest growing cell in the ET Zone.

For the past 2 weeks there have been words of multiplication speculating among the members. Last night Chee Foo finally finalized by announcing the new grouping.

The night started as any other night with an ice-breaking game...


Our old favorite "Blanket game"


Each team send out a member to shout the opponent's name when the blanket is dropped, the first person doing so will be the winner. The rest of the team mates will be supporting...


Each team has their own tactics and strategy... some ready to lunge forward...



others will try to scare them...




Joy trying to disfigure her pretty face...


I've been looking at this picture for a long time but still couldn't figure out the hand that's placed on Belinda's head... belongs to who???



After he shared the Word, Chee Foo showed a presentation of video he prepared, in appreciation of each and every one of us.

To honor and encourage members to excel... Every year Chee Foo will prepare a few awards for few of the outstanding members.



Cindy won the "Connect Group leader of the month Aug"




Violet won the "Best Newcomer award" for being teachable, integrating well into the cell group and being ready to serve in the ministry.



Amanda Shen won the "Most Courageous award" for having a good attitude even in time of crisis.





Yubing having won the "Connect Group Leader of July" has gone on to win the "Most Outstanding Award" for her best achievement as connect group leader and her good attitude with other members, always there for them and helping them grow.





Then Chee Foo went on to show his appreciation by presenting a token of small gift to each and every member.


At the back of the each gift is a color code, we were then grouped according to the color. That's the new grouping for the new cell group.

We went on to say goodbye... it was not easy, this is a strongly knitted family, for the years that I've been in it, there has never been any politics, or division...


We have never shown anything less than love for each other...

There isn't anyone in it that I don't love... Neither are there members that don't like each other. There's always been love and sacrifice for each other.

But we know it is time to be planted in some other place and grow there.



We sang our last song "We're family that Love"

Many had teary red eyes... but we still sang every word from the bottom of our heart.



The Yellow card holders staying behind with Chee Foo will help to grow N116 once again.




Red Card holders are sent to Jia Hui's Cell Group.




The Blue card holders are going to Jin Lian's cell group except for Johnny, he has decided to follow his calling and be transferred to a Filipino Cell Group which he feels that's where he will use his experience and help his people adapt to this foreign land. It must have been a painful decision as he mentioned, he has been with us for the past 7 years. But at this cross junction, it is really time to go separate ways...


The fake award winners... but we know we are all winners tonight for coming this far.



The real award winners of the night.



N116...

Who say adult cell group can't grow?

  1. Anything that is healthy, grows.

    Our cell group grows because our leader is connected to the True Vine, Jesus Christ.

    Apart from Him, we can do nothing.
