We celebrated our 47th Anniversary in CGM-style - simple and sweet. After the praises, we heard FIVE speakers share about the times when they first came to CGM.
First to share was Jiuru. He shared of the beginnings of CGM, led by Pastor Choo Fah Chong, working among the villages in Bukit Panjang. They sang and told stories to the children and performed skits for the night crowds.
Second, MingFeng shared of her childhood memories of English tuition and Sunday School sessions at CGM in the wooden house. She also highlighted her feeling of returning home, whenever she returned to CGM
Number 3 and 4 - Guowen and Yulian. They shared about romantic times, when he came to church to
“see girls”. While she came and felt loved by many church-ladies, helping her see through difficult times. They shared about how they met and married at CGM.
Last Speaker was Gaofei, who shared about him attending church after coming from China. When the Asthma medicine, brought from China, ran out, he was desperate as the Singaporean medicine seemed ineffective for him. On Sunday, Pastor Choo with a few men laid hands and prayed for him, and that very night Gaofei knew he was healed. Even until today, he continues to be free from asthmatic problems (and the medicine too).
With a short message and a mindmap, Pastor Kevin talked about the purpose and vision of our church.
Then the birthday cake! Our children blew the one and only candle!
We ended with a Popiah lunch… nice?
