Actually, it should probably be said that our roof was raised on May 12th through the incredible performances of singers Li-Chan Chen, her husband, John Maxham, and pianist Samuel Cheung of various classical pieces. We were moved by John’s deep and melancholic song inspired by the Hebrew passages in Ecclesiastes.
On the other hand, who couldn’t be deeply moved by Li-Chan’s voice as she sang love songs and various other pieces. In the end, both Li-Chan and John gave personal testimonies about their journey of faith and how their singing has been an important inspiration for them along the way.
With over 70 people in the audience, a wonderfully full table of refreshments, we felt that the word of our need for a new church house roof was most certainly heard and supported by various groups and individuals.
Thanks to those of you who welcomed visitors at the door and sold tickets, as well as encouraged friends and family members to attend. And special thanks to the women who organized all the incredible desserts, cheeses, and fruit offered that evening, as well as those who sent off notices of this special event to the newspapers and other organizations.
