HEARTBEAT : MANDARIN MINISTRY

MID-AUTUMN MANDARIN SERVICE: SERVING AS ONE FAMILY IN FAITH The Mandarin Ministry organized a memorable Mid-Autumn evangelistic service. By Peh Oon Thian

Each year, the Mandarin Ministry (MM) at Faith organizes several evangelistic meetings to encourage the congregation to invite pre-believers to hear the Gospel. During the MidAutumn Evangelistic Service on 16 September 2018, members of the Chinese congregation rose up to the occasion and a total of 549 people attended the event. Desmond Sim, a former MediaCorp celebrity, was invited to share his testimony to the Chinese-speaking congregation. Aside from the guest speaker, the organizers

planned a meaningful programme to reflect the spirit and cultural relevance of the Mid-Autumn festival. This included a guzheng performance of classic Chinese songs, followed by a sing-a-long session led by the Mandarin members of the ukulele team. The Revelation Shofar Team was present to blow the Shofar as a symbolic act of welcoming the presence of God which also signaled the start of the worship. The event ended with a lunch fellowship as hundreds stayed back to savour a delicious

meal while chatting with friends, new and old.

One Family In Christ The highlight was definitely the appearance of Desmond Sim, who was welcomed with rousing applause as he went onstage. Many recognized his familiar face from Channel 8 drama serials and television shows and listened attentively while he shared his personal testimony of how God came through for him during a challenging season of his life. It was an edifying testimony and we rejoice that four individuals
