Dear Friends at 5C:

Happy Chinese New Year to all church families! May the Lord show His mercy in the Year of Ox, so that people on earth may bring this malicious virus under control in the coming months. Praise the Lord that we had a beautiful Chinese New Year celebration last Sunday. During the pandemic, this celebration may be less ideal than those of previous years, but our leaders have been creative to bring as much joy as possible to our congregation, especially for those lovely kids in our midst. This is the first time for our church to hold a CNY event online, and it is our hope that this will be the last one as well.

The case number of COVID-19 continues to fall across the country as vaccination wraps up quickly to reach out to more people in different groups. It is expected that three more vaccines may become available in the next two months. Therefore, the shortage of vaccines will be greatly relieved. By the time of this summer, people may have the choice to pick up which vaccine they would like to take. As more of our church members got their vaccines, it is possible that we may return to the church earlier than what we previously anticipated. For now we can surely dream of summer BBQ with the whole church family to enjoy in-person fellowship once again.

Praise the Lord that Loan’s mother and sister have fully recovered from COVID-19. Please continue to pray for Brother Beng Lim who is still hospitalized.
