Dear RiverGrace family,
We had nearly perfect weather for our hike and BBQ on Tuesday. Thanks to all who helped make it a fun day, especially the cooks! Our kitchen was full of them! Nearly 40 people joined the day's activities.
This coming Sunday we will continue our journey with Nehemiah in chapter 2 of his book. Nehemiah faced many obstacles in accomplishing the task that God had given him to do... return to Jerusalem and help restore the honor of the city that was supposed to be the shining jewel of God's glory. How did he manage to do it? How did he face the opposition to his task?
How do we face opposition or challenges that seem to be too big for us? I will talk about the character quality of determination in, "Starting to Move the Mountain." P. Cindy will lead the worship songs and we will have our regular fellowship lunch after the service.
RiverGrace has found a new home for the next stage of development, but the process of becoming an independent church now is our next step before we move. We need the approval of the deacons of Yan Yue, our mother church, and also the final official approval of the Hong Kong Evangelical Church.
HKEC is the church conference which began back in 1954 with the planting of its first church. Yan Poon Church, established by our mission, One Mission Society, (formerly OMS International). RiverGrace will become the 21st church of HKEC and its first international church in the conference.
Please continue to pray with us through this process. There are still many decisions that need to be made, and issues worked through with the various partners.
