Have Faith, Have Hope, Always Have Love
Wai Ting Yu

When I was initially told to write something, my reaction was that, no problem, I can write that easily, as I have written patagraphs that ate longer than that. Of course, as it turns out, it is never that easy, especially when you want it to be a work of love and labor, not one of mindless shrivel.

In a way, this church has been a patt of me just as much as I have been part of it. When I first started coming here, I was a little 12-yeat-old perfectionist-wannabe, just on the brink of starting out in the bigger world. Looking back, it is hard to believe how far I have come in the last nine yeats, as I struggled through the teen years perhaps the most important and life-changing yeats of my life. I had my share of joy and sorrow, encouragements and disappointments, successes and failures. I learned to not take anything for granted and not to take things so seriously. No one was perfect and after many years, I finally taught myself to let go when circumstances called for it. I laughed, I cried, but in the end, I learned. I started to accept myself more for being who I was and knew that no matter how imperfect I was, there would always, ALWAYS, be people supporting and loving me my family and my friends.

Nothing in the world can change the friendships I have made in the last nine years in this church, as I consider a few my closest friends in the world and I can only be eternally grateful to them. And I think if nothing else, one verse has continued to stick with me more so than any other and that verse is Luke 1:37 "With God, nothing is impossible". In context, this was the angel Gabriel telling a stunned Virgin Mary that she will carry the baby Jesus, who will become Christ and Savior to all. Now, if God can give His only son to save us from eternal damnation, what can He not do? I will continue to lift my eyes to the Lord for with Him, nothing is impossible, even if it may feel like it sometimes.
Have faith, have hope, and always, have love!

Church Just Line My Family

Brian Chan

Having attended this church since I was born, it is a blessing. Every Sunday I learn about God and I. was introduced to the very famous book, the Holy Bible. I first studied the picture bible. As I grew older, I started reading the Bible which helps me to know more about Jesus Christ. Through out the years, I have grown in Christ and understand His ways. One summer our church encouraged me to enroll at the Herald Gospel
Camp. It gave me this opportunity to grow even more in Christ. This church is like family to me and it is a great
place to learn more about God .
