Mr Wong's birthday (a very belated post...)

...nanny joy writes...

Birthday celebrations for Zhifu has always been a very important and significant event for us in n116. Every year, we devise means and ways to sabo celebrate Zhifu's birthday.

Just take a look at the email strings:

In 2008, was "wild wild and WET" and check out the way we celebrated his birthday here:

In 2009, was warm and cozy with a special guitar performance by Daniel Ang and Joshua.




(I realise that we haven't posted the '09 photos up! Here's the link: chcn116 Photobucket - Zhifu's Birthday 09)

This year, we decided to keep things simple, and we had a simple dinner at Zhou's Kitchen, Far East Square.

After the sumptuous ala-carte buffet dinner, dessert was served.

Did you see the "snowcaps"?

And Mr Wong is clearly amused by the dessert.

Then follows a speech by Francis.

A group photo to end off the celebrations...
Pardon the resolution coz the photos were taken with my BB curve :(

Standing in the Gap

Ezekiel 22

30So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.
The prophet Ezekiel is here expressing the need for prayer intercessors who would "stand in the gap" before God on behalf of the needs of His people of that time. It's a privilege we can lift up in prayer the needs of others as we are led by the Holy Spirit. Apart from prayer, standing in the gap means to give your precious time to listen to a sad and frustrated girl; Standing the gap means to avail yourself for the things of God and look at the body of Christ as a whole; Standing in the gap is to seize the moment and being selfless. It can be rather ironic when your supporters told you they will support you, and you realize they are standing so far behind when you turn around. The choice to stand in the gap is not automatic and it has to be learnt. Yes, you have the power to make the difference.
