Chinese New Year Party

This past week, we were thrilled to help with a Chinese New Year Party and outreach along with the Chu and Giegerich Family.

We distributed posters and fliers similar to this one. We thank the Lord for about 25 Chinese people who ended up coming.

We had lots of good food!

We had a time of singing and special music.

Evelyn's father shared in Chinese and English the etymology of the Chinese characters 年 (year) and 福 (blessed). Both have amazing spiritual and Biblical parallels in their modern and historical forms. He concluded with a clear presentation of the Gospel.

We prepared special traditional New Year 紅包 (Red Envelopes) for each of the guests. Inside of each one was a Gospel tract, a bookmark featuring the Chinese character 福 (blessed), and a penny pressed with the 10 Commandments.

We also gave Chinese New Testaments to anyone that did not already have one.

Please pray that God would work in the lives of each Chinese person present, and that he would continue to give us opportunity to minister and reach out to the precious Chinese people.
