Was a great time of food, fun and fellowship as we celebrated Chinese New Year as a CG. Glad that Isaac, David, Michael, Loong and Conrad could join us. We had traditional steamboat (+ bbq) and enjoyed a round of Guesstures which had everyone enjoying themselves with fun and laughter.

Here are some pictures & clips.

Vineyard Retreat

Almost 8-10 of us attended the Vineyard Retreat over the Fri-Sat weekend in church. It was a refreshing time of learning from God's Word and sharing and praying through the goals and direction for the new year. A couple of us went for dinner at Novena after the Sat session.

CG Prayer & Praise

4 of us got together for our first CG P&P this year, as most of the members were at the Vineyard Retreat. Abrie, Jason, Jeanie (new friend), and myself spent the time worshipping and praying through the church baseline prayer items. It was a truly anointed time of just coming before the Lord in the quietness of Rindu and waiting on Him as He moved us to pray. Really experienced God's abiding presence and peace with us that night.

Here are the items for your prayers.

CG Welcoming the New Year

We had our first CG gathering of the new year today. Wenxing led in a fun ice-breaker where we were to find out as much about each other in 10 min, and then we sent 1 rep on the chair, and we had to match answers to Wenxing's questions e.g. birthday, CCA in sec sch, fav verse, etc. The ladies won 8-7.

Tim shared from Matt 9:35-38 about 2006 as the year for harvest and growth. Here are the notes.

We spent some time to pray for Abrie, Eddie and Lifen.

Prayer & Praise (Jan) + Send-off for Lifen

Was a good time of hearing testimonies, and praying for the individuals and families of the church. A new friend, David, who walked into church looking to visit last week, joined us. Spent some time talking and praying with him.

Here are the points for your prayers.

A few of us also sent off Lifen at the airport this evening. She will be based at Sydney, Australia for the next 3 months for work training. Let's continue to pray for God's protection and blessings upon her as she settles into work and life down-under.
