Dear Family and Friends,
Deb and I would like to wish you a very blessed 2017. Our prayer for you is what Paul prayed for the believers at Ephesus and Philippi in Ephesians 1:16-23 and Philippians 4:19,20. I  give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he performed in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him that fills all in all, and my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever Amen and Amen.

I thank God for each of you. You are precious to us. You can pray these prayers for yourself. As you do expect the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and revelation into who  you are and what you have in Christ Jesus. You are His child and His love is in you, that love cannot fail and never comes to an end. May the peace of God have dominion in your mind (soul) as you trust in His Word and provision in all things. May that peace that passes all human knowledge and understanding keep you always. You are a blessing. Have a blessed and prosperous 2017, in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.

Happy New Year
Dear Family and Friends,
We would like to wish you and your families, and our Chinese friends and their families, a Happy and blessed Chinese New Year and Spring Festival.

The Chinese use the lunar calendar and the first of the year fell on the solar calendar date, January 13th this year.

In China, New Years Day is the start of what now is called “Spring Festival”, "chunyun". This is one of the most important holidays for the Chinese people. It is a time when Chinese will travel back home to be with their parents and family.

The holiday is the largest mass human migration in the world. Chinese authorities expect holidaymakers to make 2.5 billion trips by land, 356 million by rail, 58 million by plane and 43 million by sea over the 40-day period, which started on January 13 and lasts until February 21, with Lantern Festival.

The Chinese give an animal, from their Zodiac 12-month astrological calendar, to each year. This year it is the year of the Rooster.

Fireworks are used to start the new year and used throughout the Spring Festival. It is a time of rejoicing.

The New Year’s dinner is also called the Reunion dinner and will have an abundance of food. The foods eaten depends on what part of the country you are from. Some foods that are favorites are: Chinese Dumplings, fish, sticky rice, rice dumplings, rice cakes, noodle dishes, spring rolls, a lot of veggies and Hot Pot.

Children will get gifts of money in a red envelope from parents, uncles and aunts, grandparent and friends.

People will dress in traditional clothes and have fan dances in the streets, and at parks. Loin dances and parades are also popular. It is a fun time in China.
