The Abundant Life

 This is a an appetizer of Smoked Duck Salad with Mandarin Oranges and Walnuts. Though I prefer it with pomelo, mandarin oranges are just as nice. You can easily prepare this within 15 minutes, and chill in the fridge before your guests arrive. You can buy ready cooked frozen smoked duck from supermarkets.

Chinese New Year Visitation 

Every Chinese New Year, we visit our unchurched SS children at their homes. We also bring a Chinese New Year goody bag to them. We are always warmly welcomed by their families, I look forward to such visits because I get to meet,  and know their parents, some grandparents better. These children usually take the Sunday School bus to church and we communicate with the parents via telephone or newsletter.
During the visits, we invite the parents to Sunday Worship service, and also our church events, like the Family Night, Church Family Day Outing, Parents Night and Christmas Outreach. Some of them came to these events.

God works in His will, way and time,  A few had come for worship service and catechism class, and were  baptized in the the church.  It is wonderful to see the parents and children worshiping the Lord together as a family unit,  experiencing His love and enjoying His blessings.

Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."  John 10:10

A promise by Christ to have spiritual abundance and prosperity, to enjoy His grace and blessings because Christ lives in us and we in Him.
