Think About It (Reading John 12:12-16). As we read the gospels we see the progression of Jesus’ ministry and popularity come to a climax with his triumphal entry. People are laying down their coats and palm branches—a sort of rolling out the red carpet tradition—while praising him and the city is stirred up. The Pharisees exclaim, “Look, the world has gone after him” (Jn. 12:19). Many believe. Mission accomplished. Credits roll. But we know the story doesn’t end there. God has a much bigger
ending planned. It’s hard to believe that within a week Jesus would be tried and crucified — the crowds would turn and against him demand a detestable criminal be released instead of Jesus. What happened? What made the crowds so fickle? Ask: Is there a time you were disappointed with God? How did you work through that? Pray: Ask for strength of faith for yourself, your family, your church, and the body of Christ all over the world. May we believe even when it doesn’t make sense to.

Happening Next Sunday As we have been announcing, on Easter afternoon, 20th of April, after the worship service, we will be having our family fun day. The Hanoi Academy sports hall is reserved for HIF from 12:00pm-5:00pm. The purpose of the fun day is for both congregations to get together in fellowship. The day as already is being planned will be filled with games and activities where everyone in HIF can participate. From last Sunday, many had signed-up for games which includes basketball, football, pingpong, and badminton. We have game leaders for both locations: Dennis Reed for My Dinh and Eric “Kwame” Dennis R, Kopoku for Westlake. This Sunday will be the last we will be gathering for sign-ups. So if you have not signed-up yet, please don’t forget to do so at the end of service. Hanoi Academy will be providing the ping-pong Eric ‘Kwame’
equipment, basketball, and football and the tug o’ war rope. However for those who have enlisted for the badminton, you will have to bring your own badminton rackets. This coming week, Dennis and Kwame will be meeting up to discuss the details about how the games will be conducted on that day. We will also have snack booths by Donkey and Joma. Refreshments will be available for sale on that day. We will be putting up a table for snacks so that everyone can bring snacks to share. Louise Cheung and CK along with other volunteers are in-charge of the snack table. For our kids, Doreen, Birgit, and Rebecca along with other volunteers are also preparing games and crafts for our kids. We are looking forward to an afternoon filled with fun as both the My Dinh and Westlake congregation fellowship and compete in games. It’s only once a year that we have this chance and so it would be good to plan our schedule for this Easter event.
Upcoming in May
