The much-awaited Jing Cai Zhi Ye was called to a glorious start in the evening of Sept. 12 at The Masland Methodist Church at 7:00 p.m. by the eloquent MCs.

Essentially Jing Cai Zhi Ye was a district-level fellowship night of MAF of Sibu East District. The gathering bore testimony to the wonderful love of our God. The turnout this time was simply overwhelming. God moved more brothers and sisters to congregate than we had asked for in our prayers.

"Be persistent in your upkeep of faith. Fight a good fight like Paul to win a crown of righteousness," DS Rev Wong Koi Foh called on the adult fellowshippers in his message.

Quoting 2 Timothy 4: 7-8, DS Rev Wong said that excellence is not just confined to this evening in your presentations. "It is a life-long race," he told the congregation.

The energetic adult fellowshippers staged marvellous shows to glorify God. They don't look like their ages - their versatility matches the junior groups. The stage shows last night gave a manifestation that they are still at their peak.

It was a smooth-running evening. There were some technical hiccups, but Terrence Tan and James Lau managed them well.

At 6:30 p.m., the sky turned cloudy and there was a light drizzle. It was worrisome for us. Praise Lord that towards 8:00 p.m., the sky was cleared for us to use Hoover Square (an open-space ground) for the light refreshments after gathering. God truly answered our prayers for a fine weather!

Jing Cai Zhi Ye touched me personally. We witnessed a very brotherly working relationship in organising the fellowship night. There was personal experience of the closeness of God in our serving together hand in hand.

See you in 2010!
